After saturating the mat I had a number of issues.  In fact I might have just have made a full list of most issues that can come up on that layer.  (I’ve never said that I am an expert craftsman – I am a just get by DIY’er).

Here they are:
Picture
First a bubble on the cant strip but I was not too worried about that as I am covering it with flashing.  Instead I am taking a shot of a ridge right at the edge of the flashing.

Here is a bit of debris from a cherry tree in the yard that is underneath the mat

Another issue on the cant. After my close call with the resin almost hardening I rushed the rest of the cant and had a few issues.  Again most of them will be covered by the flashing
Picture
A big high ridge that I couldn't get to sit.  Maybe a bubble in the foreground.  Note: I only went after bubbles that were big and solid.  I had some areas with a series of little bubbles (1/8″ diameter to 3/16″ diameter) that were not connected – those I just left.

An unsaturated corner.  You have to sand it all off and redo it.  This is what will happen if you run out of resin too.
Another Ridge and what I think this is a bubble/ridge combo. Followed by an unsaturated ridge at the edge.  The last one still looked bad after remedial work but luckily was covered by the railing in the end.

My worst series of bubbles on the deck.

How do you fix them.  Easy! I’ll show you how next time…
