Best deck waterproofing before gluing carpet??

Tagged to remind myself to look for Henry's 263 when I get to that stage of the game!

Thanks for the great info!

Bouncing this one...

Henry's 263 is getting hard to find... so if you planned on using it, you may want to

Amazon has been out for a while now. I've ordered it twice online at various online hardware stores just to get refunded when they tell me it's out of stock and they have no idea when it will be back in. My local hardware store carries Henry/Ardex products, but they can't order the 263. They can get 663.

I actually had to call the manufacturer and find a local carpet supplier near me. They've placed an order for it, but again they don't know when or if it will come in.

awesome post. so i guess the question is, if i cant get 263, what is the next bext thing? we might as well get that established since it doesnt look like 263 will always be an option. anymore tests done?

I actually had it come in through a local Carpet Shop!

Call Henry Headquarters and ask for local suppliers that can order it (they can't sell it direct).

The W.W. Henry Company
400 Ardex Park Drive
Aliquippa, PA 15001

800-232-4832
724-203-8000


They were able to give me a couple local shops and the first one I called placed an order for 2 gallons, and it arrived in about a week. I would try that first.

Roger that, thanks! In the meantime, I did some looking and the 263 is solvent based, so I am going to look around and see if I can't find a similiar solvent based adhesive. I will let you know what I find.

i used roberts 6700 glue and thompsons waterseal. i figured my carpet will need a change before the wood rots or de laminates.i store my boat in the heated garage so i really didn't worry about water. plus it will be easier to unscrew/remove the deck if i can pull up most of the carpet.
if all else fails....stop using all else

Quick status update on this awesome thread Jay415 started. I swung by a local carpet shop and purchased Anchor 986. It's completely waterproof carpet adhesive. So I am hoping it will perform as well as Henry 263 in the water test. I was going to order the Henry 263 but the salesman told me about Anchor 986 and the fact that it is cheaper.

I will run the test tonight and let you know.

I wanted to update this thread quick and let everyone know that if you can't find the Henry's, Anchor 986 will work too, it passed the water test and is completely waterproof.
