Wauquiez has a good reputation but any fastened teak deck
is apt to develop leaks
. Normally the teak
is bedded in a caulk and fastened through the bedding to the Plywood
below. The seams between the planks eventually shrink and gets in, gets through the bedding at the fasteners, propagates to somewhere else, and leaks through some other fastener hole... They are extremely hard to fix, but sometimes can be fixed if you have access to the underside of the entire deck
. Normally they need to be removed and replaced.
It is hard to determine the condition by age alone as it often depends on the service
they have seen. If you don't know that they are leaking, then they may not be today. Who knows about tomorrow.
