Duradek - Waterproof Vinyl Sheet Systems
July 14, 2010
In Western Canada, an extremely popular decking material is vinyl decking. We have done our homework at HouseSmart, and found the BEST vinyl decking product available in Canada – Duradek. It is a waterproof vinyl outdoor flooring that features many benefits such as long life span, a variety of colours and textures and a truly water proof system. It is ideal for sundecks, roof decks and balconies.
They have been in the deck and balcony waterproofing industry since 1974. They pioneered the use of PVC membranes as an outdoor walking surface and were the first to have an approved single ply 'walk on' roof membrane. Duradek membranes are the primary roofing approved materials on tens of thousands of roof decks throughout North America. From large condominium and townhouse complexes to single family homes, Duradek is the choice of Architects, Builders, Property Managers and Homeowners who appreciate our attention to detail.
Duradek's factory engineered products and professional installation techniques have set new standards for waterproofing that works. Their products are only installed by trained, professional applicators to ensure the job is done right, the first time.
Duradek’s current product line-up:
– The original sheet vinyl designed to waterproof flat decks and roofs. It is textured to provide slip-resistant walking surfaces and comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns to provide a contemporary, clean look previously unavailable in the outdoor waterproof flooring industry. This product provides waterproofing and walking surface in one simple solution.
Duradek Ultra Tiledek
– Duradek Ultra Tiledek is identical to Duradek Ultra other than a fabric embedded top layer that creates a surface to which the tile bonding thinset will securely adhere. Installed with the same waterproofing details and techniques as Duradek, Tiledek is the waterproofing roofing membrane under a tile, slate or porcelain finished surface. In addition to protecting the surface below, Tiledek also acts as a crack isolation barrier to bridge small cracks in the substrate preventing those cracks from transferring through to the tile.
Duradek Ultra Plazadek
– Duradek Ultra Plazadek is designed specifically for the purpose of waterproofing flat deck or roofs which are intended to have pavers, stamped concrete or a wood/synthetic wood duckboard system placed overtop for pedestrian traffic. Plazadek is identical in construction to Duradek Ultra, installed with the same waterproofing techniques, by the same network of trained applicators and performs the same function of protecting the living space below.
