Dek-cetera: Authorized Installer of Duradek Waterproof Vinyl Membranes

Duradek Authorized ApplicatorDuradek, The Original sheet vinyl membrane for waterproofing decks and balconies, was developed to solve leak problems almost 40 years ago. All Duradek sheet vinyl is designed for strength, stability and slip-resistance. Duradek waterproof vinyl flooring is only installed through a network of Authorized and Trained Installers who ensure the application is done right!

  • Permanent waterproof protection for sundecks, roofdecks, balconies & more
  • Available in many stylish colors, patterns & textures
  • Industry-leading 10-Year Warranty

The old liquid applied and concrete topping products were the only options previously available, and they were failing repeatedly. Property owners and builders complained about leaks, unsightly appearance, expensive repairs and time-consuming maintenance. Duradek recognized the need for waterproofing to be performed by Trained Applicators, and as result, all Duradek Dealers go through an extensive training course – Dek-cetera is one of those Trained and Authorized Dealers.

This coastal residence enjoys a fabulous Pacific Northwest island location, however the natural beauty also brings the relentless cycles of wind and rain that are part of the region. After some years, the previous type of vinyl used on the deck had become unattractive and required replacing. While the vinyl had protected the deck adequately to save most of the substrate, some of the waterproofing details from its installation did not fully protect the deck, and some rot was found. The wooden rails were attractive at the beginning, but they do require a lot of maintenance and the wood eventually rots, as it did in this case.

Dek-cetera repaired the areas that had developed rot and prepared the existing substrate for the application of Duradek Ultra Granite Chip vinyl. The vinyl was installed with the detailed attention to water flow and edging details that Duradek professionals are specifically trained in and expertly qualified for. Next, the Durarail powder-coated aluminum railings were installed, using a fascia mounted system. The glass panels between the aluminum posts allows the homeowner to enjoy the beautiful surroundings while still blocking some of the coastal winds from the deck area.

The selection of Duradek Ultra vinyl and Durarail powdercoated aluminum railings with see-through glass panels was the perfect choice for these senior homeowners who wanted a low maintenance, non labour intensive outdoor solution. These low-maintenance options will keep their deck looking great without the need to hire laborers annually to maintain it.
