Tiling Your Outdoor Balcony or Deck? Remember the Waterproofing...

A growing trend is turning previously unusable outdoor living space into an oasis complete with tile, torches and plenty of smiles. You may also be contemplating installing tile or stone in place of or over traditional concrete. Many of these projects include upgrading an exterior balcony, patio or flat roof spaces above a garage or sunroom. Regardless of the final project, you must consider a waterproofing barrier to prevent the infiltration of water or moisture.
