Margate Fiberglass Decks

Maragte Fiberglass Decks  -  Beam Rot

 

The structural damage to these Margate Fiberglass Decks can not be seen from the street. But, if you look closely at the top post trim on the double-posts to the right of the entrance stairs. You may note a slight sag in the support beam., but scroll down and you will, for sure…

 When both the upper and lower decks are fiberglass, it is extremely important that the support columns like these doubled-up ones here, the the trim rings at the base of the fiberglass columns are fiberglassed and sealed to the deck to prevent water from leaking in and rotting the post and beams below the deck.

As we take a closer look at the top post trim, we can now see the water damage, but also look along the trimcoil or metal beam wrap and note the bubbling, chipping of the paint, which looks like ‘potential’ damage by trapping the leaky water inside and rotting the beam.

When we removed the trimcoil, we found the structural beam which was supporting the entire weight-load of the upper deck, rotted to the point where had we not found this in time, the upper deck would have fallen down. This water damage was caused by the builder not  sealing and fiberglassing the base trim on the upper deck, and this water damaged rot happened in less that five (5) years.

The first thing we had to do was to temp-up the weight of the upper deck, remove the damaged columns and sections of the beam that was rotted by the water leaking in from above. Then we installed a new 2×10 microlam and re-installed all the fiberglass posts.

We then made sure to seal with bondo and fiberglass all the columns to the fiberglass decks. WOW! Fiberglassing decks is not ‘rocket science’ but so many fiberglass contractors try to cut corners, because there is only one way to do this right, and that’s the right way to prevent leaks from coming in under the base trim.
