Outdoor decks bring sky-high values, daunting design challenges

The demand for plaza and roof decks is rising as large businesses, boutique firms, and many residential properties are looking for ways to differentiate their spaces. Amenities like dog-walking parks, pools with waterfalls, and basketball courts are bringing sky-high value to high density areas with limited outdoor useable space.

While these amenities generate premium lease rates, the planning, development, detailing and construction of waterproofing for such features are significant. Though more complex and far more maintenance intensive, these features are generally not treated with the same detailing attention that roof assemblies receive.

Carlisle Coatings & Waterproofing just introduced two new accessories to meet the unique challenges of detailing outdoor living spaces that can lessen waterproofing distress or subsequent damages over years of exposure and traffic. Go here to read more.
