Our clients’ beautiful home in Central Saanich perched atop a hillside overlooking Cordova Channel features a large front-facing elevated deck that is situated on top of a lower living area of their home. Our clients love the space to relax, entertain, and enjoy the stunning ocean views. Unfortunately, the enjoyment went away when the deck ceased to hold up to structural and cosmetic standards. The 900 square foot slate tile deck had been heavily damaged due to improper masonry installations and weatherproofing system failure. The water intrusion issue they were faced with, was likely a major problem for most of the seven-year life of the home.
