Four + Years Later, Desert Crete Stairs Just Need a Cleaning & Fresh Coat of Sealer!

Desert Crete waterproofs these stairs sealed with Mission Red to compliment the tile.

A little over 4 years ago Central Coast Waterproofing installed a Desert Crete fire rated waterproofing system over a set of plywood covered stairs at a home on Rachel Street in San Luis Obispo. The contractor who built the house had recommended me and knew that the Desert Crete system would provide years of service for his client.

The Desert Crete system has performed as expected; it is after all a rugged durable system that utilizes polymer reinforced concrete and resins. I’ve installed many thousands of square feet of this decking system and it has exceeded all my expectations.

Many coatings require that they be resealed every year or two Polyurethanes, Tufflex and Decktech’s Granite Deck System as examples) to stay alive. UV destroys them rapidly if they aren’t resealed regularly. Desert Crete only requires resealing to maintain it’s aesthetic appearance. Darker colored sealers do fade over time so it’s recommended to reseal every 3-5 years to keep the original color.

It only took a day to clean the stairs and landings, inspect them carefully for any signs of wear or damage and then apply a new color coat of deck sealer to keep these stairs looking good for another 4 years. For less than $500, these stairs are looking good again!

Whether your deck has Desert Crete, Life Deck, Westcoat, Dex-O-Tex, Mer-Kote or any other deck system, I can clean and reseal your deck too, and do it for $500 or less.
