Deck Drainage through Ladder Blocking
I have an engineered deck that calls for ladder blocking between the last joist and the rim. I need to waterproof the deck and I’d like to use an EPDM system like Mike Guertin has written about but the full depth ladder blocking the engineer spec’d causes a problem. I know RainEscape provides a solution to this but not for 24 OC. I would have to double the blocking and install a u-shaped gutter and then I could use a hybrid of the RainEscape downpouts for the ladder blocking and the EPDM for the rest (Again, can’t use RainEscape with 24OC). Just thought I would check if anyone had any better solutions.
