This system is 100% WATERPROOF and guaranteed for 10 years.  It's done with 6' wide vinyl sheets, mechanically fastened at all edges and heat-welded at the seams.

How it's done:

When the interior is finished, ventilation to the floor/roof system would typically be interrupted.  We solved this problem by expanding the footprint of the deck surface beyond the frame thus creating a soffit.  The soffit is 16" perforated hardi-board manufactured specifically for this purpose.  As a bonus, this increased the size of the deck by 65 square feet AND created an overhang to help protect the exterior of the walls.

The corbels are both structural and, of course, aesthetic.

The columns you see enclose the 6x6 pressure treated underposts of the original deck.  We make these columns from PVC sheet goods as one of the services we provide to the home builder industry and the home owner market.

There are a number of ways to secure the membrane at the exterior perimeters.  In this case, the edge of the 3/4" plywood substrate was tooled with a round-over router bit.  The membrane was wrapped under and down onto the fascia frame.

The final product is beautiful and very practical!
