The End of the Magnesite Era

The end of the magnesite era has come. In southern California – the only supplier of magnesite will no longer be supplying the product. Hence, we will no longer be able to repair or replace any magnesite decking as of today, but don’t fret. We have two alternate waterproofing systems that are better than magnesite. Those are the Desert Flex System and the Desert Crete Decking System.

The Desert Flex System can go over concrete, polymer modified concrete, magnesite, elastomeric and other such systems. It is a four layer system with a fiberglass and resin layer acting as the main waterproofing barrier. The fiberglass and resin layers allow for movement as well as continued protection even if a crack develops on the surface.

The Desert Crete Decking System is a product that will need to go over 5/8” exterior grade plywood. It is the best product in new construction. This system also has the fiberglass and resin layer and is fire-retardant. It is the best and most used product out of this office.

Both products offered come in either a knockdown finish, orange peel finish or a smooth finish. Though, it is best if we apply the knockdown or orange peel finishes as they provide the most slip resistance. They also come in a variety of color sealers to choose from.

CALL US TODAY AT 1 (800) WEST-MAG (1-800-937-8624)  and speak with the experts on alternative ways to repair your magnesite decking. You can also email us (info@westernmagnesite.com) today to get your Free Estimate.

Deck Maintenance

[iphorm_popup id=”2″ name=”Get a Quote Form”]Get your free quote today.[/iphorm_popup]Spring has sprung, and Summer is in the not-too-distant future.  Many already have plans in the works to entertain outside and spend time by the pool.

Every year after the rainy season (which according to some meteorologists may be elongated courtesy of El Nino) homeowners, tenants, and building managers discover that decks are often dirty or discolored.  Surfaces that have not been maintained for an extended period of time may even suffer from damaged subfloors and plywood, which is frequently given away by cracked, bubbling, or soft coatings.

For Magnesite, Desert Crete and Stamped Concrete Overlays, collected dirt and dust is unsightly, and can mask damage due to environment and impacts.  Western Magnesite recommends keeping your decks clean by regular sweeping.  Diluted SimpleGreen will clear up most spills and stains. For more information on cleaning, Western Magnesite also recommends resealing your Magnesite decks every 20 months, and 30 months for Desert Crete or Desert Flex fiberglass-based decks. Resealing keeps your decks looking new, and ensures full warranty coverage.

If you have any doubts about the condition of deck coatings on your property, Western Magnesite Company is here to help. Be sure to give us a call at (800) 937-8624 to request a visit from a knowledgeable estimator.

Make sure your deck is in perfect shape for the summer, so that it will be ready to weather the winter.  With regular care and maintenance, you’ll get years of use and lasting durability out of your deck system.
