Elevate your outdoor living space
Duradek is the leader in the vinyl decking industry with an unsurpassed commitment to quality and waterproof performance. An attractive, low-maintenance deck surface that is available in a range of patterns and colors for long-lasting protection from the elements.
Duradek is the original vinyl decking
The old liquid applied and concrete coating products used to be the only options available for waterproofing decks and balconies, and they failed repeatedly. Property owners and builders complained about leaks, unsightly appearance, expensive repairs, and time-consuming maintenance.
Duradek had a better solution – an attractive waterproof membrane. Duradek sheet vinyl is permanent waterproof protection for sundecks, roofdecks, balconies & more - designed for strength, stability and slip-resistance. Remember, if it doesn’t say Duradek, it’s not Duradek. All Duradek dealers go through an extensive training course to ensure the job is done right, the first time – Duradek of Charlotte is one of those trained and authorized dealers.
Leaky roof deck in need of repair
The Problem: Water leaking through light fixtures.
Since first moving into their new home, the homeowners experienced water leaking through to some light fixtures. When they had the shingles replaced on their primary sloped roof, they inquired about the flat roof over the addition. The existing flat roof exposed surface was carpet! No waterproofing detailing at all. Duradek was recommended for an attractive single-product waterproofing and walking surface solution—perfect for a deck over living space.
The homeowners also got a quote for 2-ply torch-on roofing, which is not meant to accept pedestrian traffic. With torch-on, they would need to add a separate walking deck surface. They chose Duradek’s time tested waterproofing solution to protect their home.
The Duradek Solution
Once removing all of the failed roofing products, the installers could see that the leaks were coming from the deck/wall intersection; a common issue when deck waterproofing is not handled by a trained professional familiar with the building envelope.
They installed fresh 3/4″ untreated plywood and perimeter drip flashing. Then Duradek Heritage Aspen was applied with proper care to waterproofing details where the deck meets the wall. This included removal of the siding and extending the membrane 6″ up the outside wall at the inside perimeter of the deck.
Old wooden railings were replaced with a Durarail aluminum picket railing system for a perfectly finished, low maintenance deck.
After the vinyl installation, their low-maintenance outdoor living space was completed with fascia mounted Durarail aluminum railings for waterproofing integrity and functional style with a single-source warranty.
