  • ALX Under Tile Specs DeckExpert.com suggests that all tile deck systems have a subsurface drain membrane such as Schluter Troba beninstalled over the waterproofing, then applying tile on top of the drain system. Water WILL get under tile/grout and needs a way to escape. Design requirements for tile decks are much greater than for conventional decks. See our tile deck waterproofing page here for more information.

NOTE ON RAILINGS-All railing systems must be designed and attached to resist 250#’s against them. Consult the IRC, UBC & CA Building Codes before installing railings. Remember, railings prevent people from falling and must be carefully installed so water intrusion does not occur.
