Ocean Twsp Fiberglass Decks

Columns Not Fiberglassed To The Deck

..

This Driscoll Fiberglass Solution Story starts with these Ocean Twsp Fiberglass Decks with a fairly common problem. Structural fiberglass columns must be sealed and fiberglassed to the decks. An inexperienced builder doesn’t know that you must ‘seal’ (or fiberglass) the base of the column to the deck or water get will get in under the column(s) and rot-out the substructure below the column.

This ocean side home was unique because of the ‘multiple-groups of columns’ on the upper and lower decks; but, as you will see, the problem here was compounded by the builder NOT sealing (bondo/fiberglass) these columns to the deck.

So, when we cut away the layers of plywood below the fiberglass deck, we found substantial rotting of the framing below the deck.

This was easy enough to fix by cutting out the damaged framing and installing new 1/2″ plywood over new 5/8″ sub-decking, which were all rotted from water leaking below the columns, on this – keep in mind- 4-year old house.

Then roll on the fiberglass with the hot resins, plus the final gel kote to ‘completely’ seal off each of the columns to the deck. Water will never get down below these columns again, when they’re done the right way – the Driscoll Way!

We included the below images for you to see the water damage from the same problem of not sealing the columns on the upper deck…

This home has upper and lower decks with groups of fiberglass columns, when the water ran under the ‘unsealed’ upper column, there was the potential for extensive water damage above the column trim-ring and along the trim coil beam wrap.

And, as you can see here, the water did in fact destroyed the structural beam holding up the entire front of this 4-year old house. Please notice the ‘actual hole” rotted through the beam over the right-center column, had we not found these leaks below these unsealed fiberglass columns above in time, these decks would have fallen down – sooner – than later.

We built temporary structural support to hold the weight of the upper deck, so that we could removed the damaged girder and installed a new load-barring 2 x 10 microlam beam.

And, wrapped the new header with white trim coil and finally made sure that ALL the columns were fiberglassed to the decks on both the upper and lower fiberglass decks. Thank you, Driscoll!
