Podium decks or buried roofs are essentially a form of flat roof which resides above a basement. They can have a variety of build-ups laid above them, from earth and soft landscaping, to tiling, paving and macadam.
Examples of key considerations:
We have worked with various systems (hot melt plastics, liquid applied, sheet systems) from various suppliers, and have strong opinions on what methods and systems are most practical and effective in different forms of structure.
In particular a lot of what we’ve dealt with is failed systems and existing structures, which is more complex than new construction because you have a fixed depth of build up to work with, i.e. you can’t change depth of door sills etc. etc.
Deck waterproofing particularly requires careful consideration and we are selective in what we will and will not do. If you have a requirement, please contact us and we can consider your requirements.

"I can highly recommend Trace. I rang to get a damp survey booked in on a property we were looking to buy. Lewis was very helpful over a couple of phone calls, even ringing back on a day off! Offered advice and help even though we didn't end up going through with the survey. Great service, will use again."
“Just had Trace in to deal with a fairly significant damp problem in our house. The work was completed to a very high standard in the timescale agreed before commencement. Really good communication throughout and the tradesmen were really professional. Left the house as tidy as possible every day and I’m made up with the outcome. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to family and friends.”
