Hey there. Have a question I can’t seem to find any lit’ on. Got called to a 1 year old home with decks on front and back to inspect for water entry only. All exposed or uncovered decks leaked, especially at the fence posts (see pic).
My main question is about the material used for the deck (see pic). Does anyone have anything explaining proper material for walkable flat roof decks? This granular was already beat up and piles of it were on the ground below.
Same house, different question. In several areas (see pic) look at the lack of clearance between the walls and flat roof. Not to mention hardly any pitch (see broom nearby for manual water removal). I can only find info on parapets and not wall to roof construction clearance. Less than an inch in majority of deck thorughout. Direct contact in others. Water is ponding here and transferring into wall and ceilings below. The topper is that wood siding was used, wood siding that is now in direct contact with ponding water in several areas.
Any help would be great.
