I bet it's really good at turning a wet, spongy deck into a wet, spongy deck with some foam squirted in it.

It worked well for me and I passed the moisture meter test after I had already failed. I would use injectadeck for other applications like packing my fuel tank in place when it arrives.

Re: Injectadeck - Thoughts?

My concern is that most of their talk is about passing a moisture test, or rescuing a boat sale. It really comes off as if they are touting this as a quick band-aid, so you can pass the real problem on to someone else. Of course, that's exactly what a lot of people would like to be able to do.


I don't doubt that it does what it claims that it does. It just sounds to me like a very short-term approach to addressing the problem. I suspect that, after you've injected the soft spots this year, the rot will continue to spread and you will be injecting other spots next year, and the year after that, and the year after that, and...


Personally, as much effort as it is, I think I'd rather just take care of the problem, get rid of the rot, and be done with it.

I have been considering using this product for my deck. However, I have not been able to get my head around the process of actually doing it. So, if it is not to much to ask, could you detail the methods and techniques you used to applied the Injectadeck.



Thank you very much,


Paul

Injecting disbonded cores on honeycomb material is they way it’s fixed on aircraft, adds a ton of weight of course, but does return structural integrity, however if there is any moisture that has to be removed first.

This inject a deck reminds me of sawdust in the rear end of a car, unless of course you can completely remove the moisture and any rotten core.

Re: Injectadeck - Thoughts?

Actually Injectadeck says that it needs a little moisture to work. I believe I seen a video of him actually saying to drill holes in the deck and if the wood is dry rotted to spray it down with water to moisten the core a little before injecting.

Re: Injectadeck - Thoughts?

I just replaced a section of deck that had the consistency of potting soil. I was able to pull the skin off with two fingers, since there was nothing there other than wet mulch. I didn't have to scrape the core out so much as scoop it up.


I'm sorry, but I don't believe for one second that there is anything you can inject on top of 1/2-inch of wet topsoil that will fix anything properly. Stiffen it some? Sure, there is probably some local bonding near the injection site, but it will probably shear withing months of foot traffic. Pass a moisture test? All it needs to do is provide some insulation.

A proper repair? I'm not seeing it. Really, there's wet much in there! That's not a properly prepared bonding surface.
