Emmons Road cambria job
Rubber deck splits at the plywood seams. The first sign of early failure…
Old rubber deck wasn’t installed properly-coating should be run up the vertical piece of flashing. This coating is terminated at the weep screed.
Cricket will help divert water to drains rather than sitting against the edge of the wall.
Detail around a drain-fiberglass and resin is terminated around the drain and down in so water won’t seep back under coating.

Spectacular views from the deck abound.
Cambria contractors and home owners are rapidly waking up to face the fact that rubber decking-Granite Deck, Urethanes, Tufflex, Pacific Polymers, etc. are NOT holding up well after only a few years in the sun. An onslaught of clients dissatisfied with the local rubber deck waterproofing applicators have contacted Central Coast Waterproofing seeking solutions to bad rubber decking.
Common complaints about rubber decks range from rough on bare feet, hard to clean and easily damaged to lack of response from local applicator, splitting at seams and ponding water from low spots that weren’t addressed.
Our latest project in Cambria is on Emmons; a large roof deck with expansive views had urethane decking that was splitting at the seams.
Unfortunately once splits start to develop, it’s indicative of the rubber decking having been burned up by UV exposure. Once the seams start to split, the damage to the decking is irreversible. The deck has to be done over again. The only question is do you do it over in rubber again or seek a better solution?
This home owner sought out a better solution, and found it with Desert Crete installed by Central Coast Waterproofing. Being concrete based and reinforced by metal lath and a secondary layer of fiberglass, Desert Crete resists UV damage like no other rubberized system can.
Lucky for this owner the plywood deck was in decent condition to re use. We applied Desert Crete directly over the old failing system after replacing the flashing in the walls that had failed in several areas, allowing water intrusion after only six years.
Desert Crete has given this deck new life that will resist UV, water, ordinary wear and tear like no other system does.
Let me show you why Desert Crete can’t be beat when it comes to durability, good looks, easy maintenance and long life.
