Project #118 | Private Residence,
San Francisco Bay Area, CA

Project: Private Residence, Vancouver, BC


This deck was originally done by an ‘old time’ tile installer who used traditional interior installation methods. The area needing to be covered was much larger than he was used to.

To deal with the exterior waterproofing, the installer used Ditra Mat as his waterproofing membrane. He sealed these together using Kerdi cloth and thinset.

It didn’t take long for this ‘waterproofing’ process to fail and for the homeowner to contact Duradek.


Tiledek was the perfect solution for this failed tile job. The entire substrate had to be pulled up as all details were done as though it was an indoor job.

Duradek’s proven details and installation technique gave the homeowner peace of mind and the confidence that his deck would not leak again. This high-end home now had an outdoor space worthy of entertaining its many visitors.
