Project: New Home Development – The Daybreak Community; Salt Lake City, Utah
PROBLEM: Meeting outdoor living space needs within budget in new home development
Meeting outdoor living space needs within budget can be a challenge for some builders. Forward-thinking developers at Sego Homes realized the outdoor living market was a rapidly growing segment of the residential development business. Not only was outdoor living space a growing residential lifestyle preference, but it was also a way to increase the usable square footage of a home.
To take full advantage of the potential of this insight, their talented designers had the vision to incorporate roof decks into their residential designs. This meant maximizing usable space (and overall value) without increasing the footprint of the building.
To accomplish that, it was important to use products that met building code requirements. Further, it was critical to use skilled installers.
Since Duradek fulfilled both of those criteria, a relationship with Duradek of Utah developed.
The Duradek Solution: Meeting outdoor living space demands with a Walkable Roofing Membrane
Duradek’s trained installers and proven waterproofing techniques ensure the Duradek PVC membrane is incorporated into the building envelope, protecting common points of vulnerability.
While other builders shy away from these forward-thinking designs, Sego Homes was able to confidently proceed. Having worked with Duradek of Utah previously, they understood the Duradek system. This trust in the Duradek system and in Duradek of Utah was paramount in their ability to plan for luxurious roof decks.
Duradek Ultra Heritage Agate provided the ideal single-product solution. It acts as the roofing membrane and the pedestrian surface for the rooftop decks. This allows an easy and natural solution for the flow of living space from the indoors to the outdoors.
