  • Company Story

    Open or Close
    Since 1974, Duradek has been supplying North America's premier sheet vinyl pedestrian traffic membrane. Along with other PVC products, such as siding, windows and industrial roofing. Duradek vinyl has gained wide acceptance in the construction industry as the ultimate in maintenance-free outdoor flooring. Duradek's factory engineered products and professional, detailed installation techniques have set new standards for waterproofing that works.

    All
    Duradek membranes are reinforced for multi-directional strength and stability, and have a textured finish for slip-resistance. To increase performance, the vinyl makeup includes mildew inhibitors along with ultraviolet and heat stabilizers. It is also fire-retardant and resistant to most chemicals. Attractive patterns, colors and textures provide a contemporary new look, previously unavailable in the outdoor waterproof flooring market.

    Duradek is continually researching, developing and testing new products and application techniques.

  • Duradek Advantage

    Open or Close
    The waterproof deck by Duradek is the original, waterproof, single-ply PVC membrane for roofdecks, sundecks, patios, and balconies -- virtually all decks. The Duradek line offers many advantages over the traditional or look-a-like systems. These advantages include:

    • Over 30 years and millions of square feet of Duradek® vinyl deck waterproofing installation history.
    • Competitively priced -- up-front pricing from frame construction to top surface vinyl.
    • 100% waterproof protection of the deck framing structure preventing wood rot -- it keeps everything below it dry.
    • Minimizes nail and screw breakdown from rust.
    • Stops concrete surface breakdown.
    • No mandatory re-coating to maintain warranty.
    • Best life-cycle cost for deck available.
    • Quality and uniform thickness are performed at the factory under controlled conditions to eliminate onsite contaminates, membrane delimitation and surface inconsistency.
    • Sheet vinyl can be applied and used immediately unlike liquid systems.
    • Stops the water from limiting your deck structure's life.
    Duradek can be installed in most northwest weather as long as the subsurface is reasonably dry (10-18% moisture).
    • Bottom reinforcement for longest wear surface life and superior installation and detailing.
    • Carries one of the strongest waterproof deck warranties available.
    • Class "A" and "C" rated Roof Deck Systems.
    • ICC rated deck and roof system.
    • Proven superior deck stability.
    • Northwest's largest and oldest waterproof vinyl deck installation contractor network.
    Duradek membranes are easily repaired (because accidents happen) or extended for years to come.
    • Eliminates the requirement of additional heavy and bulky mechanical protection.
    • Printed patterns help hide dirt and keep surface looking attractive longer.
    • No open pores to hold mold and mildew for the least maintenance required.
    • Over 30 choices of color, thickness, and texture.
    • Drains, scuppers, overflows and several termination options (laminated metal or termbar) all with color options.

    Simply put: if your deck or deck system can't provide these qualities, then you will build and repair again and again. Stop the cycle! Build it once -- build it right.
