We always use metal door pans that we have fabricated to ensure quality. It is important to
install a door pan even on decks that will be covered. A threshold without a door pan is
susceptible to water intrusion through weather and cleaning.
All metals used are 26 ga. for quality.
We grind all seams smooth and flashing for adhesion. Then all seams are taped and sealed
using our own special technique to create a flawlessly smooth and watertight seam.
While the base coat is curing, rubber granules are broadcast into it which creates a non-skid surface. This is necessary since a finished surface without it will become slippery when wet. The base coat then cures for 24-72 hours, depending on weather and temperatures. It is safe to walk on after this time. The deck is now considered to be waterproof. Top coat can be applied anytime after this point.
