Topcoat for existing deck that leaks

Is there a flexible and durable topcoat that I can apply to exisiting acrylic coating? I do mainenance on an apartment building where we have small cracks developing in the existing acrylic coating and it leaks at some areas. I am hopeful there is a good elastomeric or urethane coating that I can simply paint on top to get a few more years of service out of it.

What is the deck made of? An elastromeric coating should work ok.

I did one for an owner a couple of years ago, decked with Advantech and he used an epoxy type fiberglas coating in several layers with a walkable surface coating last. Not sure what it was made of, but it kept water out of two rooms I built below the deck.

Its a wood framed deck with a waterproofing system made up of wire mesh stapled to plywood, cementitious waterproof coating with textured surface then acrylic top coat. I don't know the manufacturer name or any other information.
