I brought this up last summer, and settled on what I think is a good solution.
Unfortuneatley, the Condo Association turned down my plans on account of
I didn't go into enough detail on how the deck access would be waterproofed.
Most AC companies in my area will drill the hole and feed lines but will NOT
assume any legal liability for waterproofing. They don't even sound like I would WANT them to handle that part. They wont mess with waterproofing
this deck. They'll get me where everything needs to go, except that part.
I am a CA state licensed painting contractor.
If this were my own home, I would know how to do it, but I have to submit plans as if a professional would be handleing the whole show.
Problem might be if the hole access will be close enough to the wall for a line set cover top to cover it. There might be a joist right there near the wall.
Then on top of that, it'll have to be super water proofed against rain only, and not that much here in San Diego.
Should I look into a roofing contractor or something for that part of the plans to submit?
Here's another option? Treat that access hole thru the deck as a completely seperate project done by a decking contractor or something. It would be a totally waterproofed hole, almost like a hole in the deck for a drain to below. Then, have that approved and looked at to their satisfaction.
This will now be the access for the AC lines and power into the stucco wall. The Association are more worried about the deck then sealing lines into the stucco wall, I would imagine.
