Water is the Enemy
Water management is a large part of our business. Water is our tireless enemy that seeks ingress to our buildings while we slumber. Here at AHC we smite water with our practiced techniques. One of the requirements for water to be properly smote is proper porch fall. Water must fall away from the building at all cost. Here we have a second floor deck with no roof. The doors leading to this deck are french doors, so we have a two part problem. The threshold must be absolutely tight to prevent wind driven rain from intruding, and the astragal of the french door must be sealed. We utilize a multi part process to waterproof the deck and we use copper weather stripping for the astragals. Do not overlook waterproofing on your project.
