Vinyl Installation Specifications

Please note the following procedures you should review before scheduling vinyl installation.

 

Minimum 5/8 SELECT grade T&G fir plywood. Please ensure that the plywood and workmanship is of the same high standard as subfloors for linoleum.

 

Glue and screw plywood. (countersink screws) Space out screws 4″ on joints and 8″ elsewhere.

 

Install joists with crown up and slope deck a minimum of 1″ on 8′ of deck. This will ensure proper drainage of the deck surface and minimize pooling of water on the membrane.

 

All plywood joints between joists must be T&G or have blocking for support.

 

Door jams must be a minimum 2″ above the deck surface for proper waterproofing.

 

On enclosed decks we supply and install all drains. No exceptions.

 

Schedule Vinyl installation ASAP after sheeting the deck. This will prevent the plywood from suffering environmental exposure causing warping, surface deterioration and delaminating.

 

Allow vinyl to be installed before stucco/stucco wire or siding. This allows the vinyl to be brought up higher on the wall creating a better seal for the membrane.

 

Any wall finishes (stucco stops, siding J channels) installed before vinyl must be a minimum of 2″ from the deck surface.

 

SS Decking will not install vinyl over pressure treated plywood, OSB board, or dimensional lumber.

 

All concrete surfaces must be troweled smooth before vinyl application.

 

Minimum temperature is 5ÂșC for 24 hour period. Unable to install during wet or rainy conditions.
