Los Encinos Condominiums
San Antonio, Texas
Sometimes, disaster can uncover in a few seconds problems that have festered for years. When high winds toppled a privacy fence along an 80-foot cantilevered deck at Los Encinos Condominiums in San Antonio, a serious long-term deficiency was laid bare.
Over the years, water had infiltrated the deck infrastructure, which was made of composition wood topped with a 3-inch lightweight slab. JF&A took the whole deck down and, with consultation from a structural engineer, installed a steel-beam, corrugated steel deck structure. We topped the improved heavy-duty structure with a fresh slab and thorough waterproofing.
Storms can huff and puff all they want to, but when JF&A fixes it, it’s fixed for good.
