Is it permissible to waterproof my deck during the 9 days?

Answer:

Yes, this is fine.

The prohibition against building in the Nine Days refers to building work that involves special joy.

Although it is nice to have a deck waterproofed, this doesn’t involve any special joy, and therefore there is no problem.

Best wishes.
