Project: New Home Development (Henry Walker Homes), Salt Lake County, UT
This new home project developed by Henry Walker Homes, based out of Utah, included a roof top deck.
Being a developer that takes pride in quality craftsmanship, when they realized that the waterproof coating they had planned to use was not a roofing product, they immediately began to look for approved roofing grade options.
It was important for this builder of new homes to provide reliability and attention to detail in the desirable feature of a roof top deck.
Duradek also believes that details are important and on this project the extra care went into details such as planning the plywood before the vinyl membrane was installed to ensure the drop edge was flush with the surface.
The Duradek Ultra Heritage Sienna vinyl was installed using the heat-welded system and the roof top entertainment area of this new home development now has guaranteed waterproof protection for its new owner for the next 10 years.
The developer was concerned about the $2 per square foot price difference between the coating they had planned on using and the guaranteed waterproof protection of Duradek. The Duradek installer explained that with coating systems, they must be re-coated every one to three years, while Duradek is installed only once and simply requires seasonal washing for maintenance….a more cost effective solution overall!
