Ask the contractor: Make sure exterior structures are waterproof

Sandy Griffis
Yavapai County Contractor’s Association

Q: We want to waterproof our balcony. Do you have any suggestions?-Tom and Kate, Williamson Valley

A: There is a product on the market called Duradek. Duradek has been in the deck, balcony and roofing waterproofing industry since 1974. The Duradek application uses a PVC membrane which offers a 10 year warranty.

Right here in our area we have a company called Arizona Vinyl Waterproofing that is certified and trained for the product application and this company has extremely high standards for the installation of Duradek. The product can be applied to sundecks, patios, ramps, stairways, roof decks and walk ways.

Give Bruce a call at 710-1406 to hear more about this wonderful industry-leading product.

Q: We are thinking of installing a skylight but the cost is prohibitive. Are there other options to bring light into our home?-Ted and Kathy, Cottonwood

A: Installing a solar tube is one of the more exciting and most affordable ways to bring natural light into any dark area in your home. Solar tubes have a variety of names, like tubular skylights, sun tubes and sun tunnels. Solar tubes have different diameters with a mirror-like interior. The interior acts like a mirror which brings light down the tube and into your room. Solar tubes are installed through your roof and have a weatherproof plastic globe cap on the roof. The light from a solar tube is all-natural and offers warm indirect light which is the equivalent light of two to three 100-watt bulbs. Solar tubes are relatively inexpensive when compared to a skylight and there are no alterations to the roof.

We have several companies here in town that install solar tubes: Arizona Window Wizard, 775-8964, Badger Roofing, 771-8770, Builders Wholesale, 778-6655, Eric & Sons, 775-2880, Granite Basin Roofing, 772-9222, Moyers Heating & Cooling, 772-4346, and The Door & Window Store, 778-6402.

Get the natural light that skylights provide but with less cost and less hassle.

We are planning to build a new home in Chino Valley. Do you recommend a slab foundation or crawl space foundation?
Thank you.
