   he Westcoat ALXT is our flagship waterproofing system.  This system was developed by Westcoat for the challenges that we experience here in the northwest with our wet climate.   With the right balance of flexibility, strength, and durability the ALXT system works with the plywood to expand and contract at the same rate and to flex and move with the building while at the very same time feel solid and durable under your feet.  It also provides the perfect foundation for decorative surfaces artfully constructed with engineered cements.  These deck coatings are easy to clean, last for decades, and create a unique and beautiful space.  A warranty of up to 10 years is available for this system.

onstruction Details of Westcoat ALXT  Deck Coating System:

3/4” t&g cdx glued  & nailed with galvanized ring-shank nails on joists spaced with a 16” o.c. max. span.  Deflection must be no more that 360/L.  Slope must be built into the deck frame at a minimum of 1/4” per liner foot continuous to the lowest edge where water will run off.   Most pudding issues occur at the last 2 feet along the lowest edge of the deck.  Usually because of a shift in the ledger board.  Care should be taken to eliminate this in the framing before your deck coater arrives.  This will require extra steps and create a situation that may cause cracking in that area down the road. 

WP-40 Seal Guard - A 40 mill thick fiber reinforced self adhering, self sealing waterproof membrane that runs continuously over the deck including turning up walls and posts 6” and down edge 1”.

26 gage galvanized and bonderized sheet metal flashing.  All deck to wall transitions receive 4”x6” L flashing including posts and other turned up penetrations such as skylights etc.  Drip edge is typically 4”x2” however custom down legs are available.

2.5 lb. hot dipped galvanized metal diamond lath stapled down.  All sheet edges overlap by 1”-2”.

Base Coat - WP-81/82 A high solids acrylic polymer is mixed with TC-1 engineered cement and is troweled in place over the lath. When cured this creates the main waterproofing membrane of the system.

Fiberlath & WP-90 acrylic resin are applied over the cured basecoat.  This works to act as an anti-fracture membrane and further reinforce the waterproofing characteristics of the system.

Slurry Coat -  WP-81/82 A high solids acrylic polymer is mixed with TC-1 engineered cement and is troweled in place over the Fiberlath layer.  This gives the system a coarse surface ideal for bonding other cements such as decorative coatings or thin-set for tile or stone.  It also reinforces the waterproofing characteristics of the system.
