Crumbly Chipboard

1970’s built deck, chipboard substrate, originally Nuralite asphalt sheet membrane (note black adhesive patches in photos). Replaced at some stage with Butynol Grey rubber. Parts of the chipboard had swollen up where there had been leaks, at the door corner and under the window, also several places in the deck field, possibly caused by nicks/cuts or joint failure. During the replacement of the Nuralite the installers dug out and filled the swollen areas with a cementious compound.
This time: Cut out and remove suspect chipboard and dispose, replace with 19mm plywood incl. new dwang supports where required. Rescrew remaining chipboard with Stainless Steel screws.
Sand deck and install new 1.5mm Black Butynol.
