Waterproof Deck Certifications For Complete ALX Line

September 15th, 2017 No comments

Westcoat is proud to announce that the ALX Pro Waterproof Walking Deck System, in both Standard and Custom finishes, has been independently tested to meet the industry standard, International Code Council (ICC) Acceptance Criteria for Walking Decks (AC39) and has received waterproof deck certifications through the ICC’s recognized evaluation service ICC-ES. It joins ALX Standard and Custom on the updated ICC-ES Evaluation Report ESR-2201 available on our website.

ALX and ALX Pro Obtain Waterproof Deck Certifications Class A and One-Hour Fire Rating, Class I Vapor Retarder

All Westcoat ALX and ALX Pro systems provide a Class A Roof Covering Classification (ASTM E108) and One-Hour Fire Rating (ASTM E119). In addition to these certifications, when WP-40 Sheet Membrane is applied over the entire plywood substrate, both ALX and ALX Pro in Standard and Custom finishes meet classification for a Class I Vapor Retarder (ASTM E96) and have been certified by ICC-ES (ESL-1106, ESL-1098). These waterproof deck certifications can be viewed from our ALX system page.

What is ALX Pro? 
The ALX Pro waterproof walking deck system features all the proven attributes and benefits of the existing ALX system, but features an additional Fiberlath Resin Membrane layer. This additional layer provides greater waterproofing and helps protect against cracking, especially on larger spans or cantilever decks. This system gives plywood the look and feel of concrete with a decorative appeal. ALX Pro has been designed for balconies, corridors and landings. It is regularly specified for hotels, condominiums, apartments and office buildings. ALX Pro can be stapled through most old deck systems to provide an excellent method for the rehabilitation of problem surfaces.

ALX is the clear choice when choosing a waterproofing system. It is regularly specified for hotels, condominiums, apartments and office buildings. It is recommended for the discriminating architect, contractor or building owner that demands the greatest in strength and durability. When installed by a Westcoat QCA, this system is eligible for up to a 15-year warranty.

Waterproof Concrete Protects Utah Luxury Apartment

August 28th, 2017 No comments

The Aston at University Place is known as one of the premier apartment complexes in Orem, Utah. Located just outside of Salt Lake City, Orem is home to Utah Valley University. Podium decks throughout the Aston property serve as courtyards or balcony decks for residents to BBQ and enjoy the mountain views but it’s what lies below the podium decks that the property managers were concerned about. With parking located beneath the podium decks, the need for a waterproof concrete solution was critical.

ICO Construction brought in Westcoat applicator, E-Green Exteriors to install Westcoat’s MACoat waterproof concrete system with a custom finish to protect this new complex and create the appeal expected for luxury apartment residents.

Aston Apartment Podium Balcony Deck Courtyard Waterproof Concrete MACoat Westcoat

Podium decks throughout the Aston property serve as courtyards or balcony decks for residents to BBQ and enjoy the mountain views

Project: The Aston at University Place, Orem, Utah

Contractor: ICO Construction

Applicator: E-Green Exteriors

System Installed: MACoat Custom

Color: Tobacco (Water-based Stain Blend)

Area: Podium Deck / Courtyard / Balcony Deck

Size: 13,500 sq ft

Applying The MACoat Waterproof Concrete System

 

The process began with diamond grinding the plain concrete surface twice to ensure the best adhesion for the MACoat system. With many large structures, supports, and drains on the deck, E-Green Exteriors made sure to pay special attention to what can be troublesome areas. All expansion joints were honored and cracks were routed, filled with seam tape and EC-72 Fast Cure Epoxy Patch Gel where needed. Then WP-47 Fiberlath was laid down and the Base Coat applied. After the final texture coats were applied, the surface was stained with our Water-based Stain Blend in Tobacco (follow link for color charts and more options). This color blend is created by using a base of TC-2 White Texture Cement blended with TC-40 Liquid Colorant in Cinnamon, and a mixture of water and SC-35 Water-based Stain in Mahogany.  The surface was then sealed with SC-70 Acrylic Lacquer Concrete Sealer which is UV resistant, low VOC and creates the wet look requested by ICO.

With 13,500 sq. ft of the first building complete, the other three buildings will follow with the final total square footage equaling 54,000 sq ft. Until the other decks are completed, the residents of the other buildings will likely be coming to this one for their barbecuing needs!

Damaged Condo Stairs Get Resilient Waterproof Renewal

July 26th, 2017 No comments

Vista Del Cerro Stairs Before During After ALX Westcoat

Project: Vista Del Cerro – Laguna Niguel

Applicator: Angus Smith Construction

System Installed: ALX Standard

Color: Rocky Nook

Area: Balcony Floors / Stairs / Stair Landings

Size: 6,900 sq ft

 

The Vista Del Cerro condo complex in Laguna Niguel, CA was suffering from spots of wood decay on its stairs, landings, and balconies. In order to keep the residents safe and prevent further damage, Tritz Professional Management services called in Westcoat Qualified Contractor / Applicator (QCA), Angus Smith Construction to repair the damage and install a new waterproofing system. Westcoat’s waterproofing-over-plywood ALX system not only works on decks and walkways but is also perfect for stairs.

Each of the 30 sets of stairs and their landings was inspected to determine the extent of the repair required. Once new plywood was placed where needed, stair to wall metal flashing was fabricated on site and installed to strengthen vulnerable water penetration points. In addition to metal flashing, bituthene and urethane sealants applied to strengthen waterproofing at vulnerable locations. Next, the metal lath was stapled in place followed by the application of the base coat and once dry, the slurry coat.

Property managers of Vista Del Cerro wanted a textured finish that would be easy to clean and could hold up against moderate to high foot traffic so Angus Smith Construction delivered just that with a knockdown texture. The texture coat was applied using a hopper gun then a trowel was used to create the knockdown texture. The final step in the ALX system is to apply two thin coats of SC-10 Acrylic top coat. For this project, Rocky Nook was chosen to complement the color scheme in the complex.
