Condominium Building - Seattle, WA
Deck Guardrail Repairs and Project Management
This three-story three unit building perched on a steep hillside has expansive decks with south facing views of Elliott Bay and downtown Seattle. After years of exposure to the elements, the wood framed guardrail walls and decks began to show their age and eventually decay.
Pacific Engineering Technologies was hired by the owner’s to investigate the extent of decay in the deck framing and provide a scope of repair. The repairs included removing the guardrail walls obstructing the views with new metal and glass guardrails with new structural connections to the deck framing. Additionally the existing waterproof deck membrane was rejuvenated with a new cementitious topping and pattern to extend useful life of the deck surface. The project resulted with a custom deck finish while enhancing the incredible views for year to come.
