Constantly we see improvised design solutions for decking or tiles over waterproof membrane surfaces. Unfortunately these solutions don’t last, and more often than not its contributed to incorrect installation.

Here is an example of a membrane deck that didn’t have enough room to breathe.

As can be seen because of no ventilation, the joists and decking boards started to absorb moister. This leads to rott and extreme mildew growth. Not a prity picture at all.

We have summerised the pro’s and con’s of various installation scenarios aswell as the council requirements for decking over a water proof membrane.

So if you’r concidering replacing or building a new deck over membrane you can find all the information you need in this comprehensive white paper.
