20 Favorite Vinyl Decks

Some of our favorite vinyl decks have a balance of fantastic appearance with minimal maintenance. Duradek has a lot to choose from to pick our favorites! With vinyl installed from coast-to-coast throughout North America, there are thousands of fantastic decks finished by our skilled network of Duradek dealers.

Here we take a look at 20 of our favorite vinyl decks and why we love them…

Why we love this deck…

The original, simplistic solution of Duradek vinyl effectively waterproofing an upper-level deck surface while creating a dry, protected area below works well at the residence. The color of the Cork Natural vinyl complements the home owner’s existing exterior design details and the Durarail glass railing system provides an open view with a little protection from the wind at this coastal residence. It is clean, simple, and best of all, the homeowners have all of the low maintenance advantages of vinyl decking and aluminum railings.

Second Level Leisurely Deck

Why we love this deck…

This deck calmly states luxury and leisure with its low-maintenance Duradek surface overlooking the pool area. The elegant look of Duradek Cork Macchiato vinyl provides the practical waterproof performance; and the loungers on the deck highlight the fact that Duradek is meant for those who enjoy their leisure and do not intend to labor on their deck annually. Also of note, the blocks that the loungers sit on are covered in the same Duradek vinyl as the deck. A feature that demonstrates the reputation that skilled Duradek installers pay attention to details and go above the basics to be sure that their customers are thrilled with their decks.

Why we love this deck…

Speaking of luxury, this roof deck by Sego Homes in the master-planned Daybreak community in Utah conveys the elevated lifestyle Duradek has helped many developers bring to their clients. Duradek’s roofing approved membrane allows builders to confidently offer some of the hottest trends in residential development such as increased enjoyment of decks and outdoor living space and extending the interior of the home outward to create a harmonious blend of useable space. Additionally, by extending livable space vertically and increasing the square footage of useable space without increasing the footprint of the building, developers can maximize the value of their projects (and homeowners gain the luxury of a private, roof-top terrace). Duradek of Utah goes the extra mile in educating architects and developers in Utah and the surrounding area on the applications and techniques involved in PVC membrane waterproofing.

Down to Earth Details on a Vinyl Patio

Why we love this deck…

The advantages of Duradek vinyl are not restricted to roof decks. Ground-level patios are well served by the reliable waterproof protection and the slip-resistant surface of vinyl decking. Again, skilled Duradek installers at HTR Duradek made the difference in the details. This attractive border effect with dual tones of Duradek Ultra Cork vinyl using ‘Macchiato’ as the primary color and a border of ‘Espresso’ certainly elevates the look of this ground level patio.

A Simple Solution for a Residential Roof Deck

Why we love this deck…

It’s not complicated. After a lot of frustration and water damage when their tile deck was not waterproofed below, the whole deck was rotted and the entire substrate had to be replaced. After preparing the deck with untreated plywood, the single solution of Duradek as a walking surface and waterproofing membrane in a one-time installation took the topic of water leaks and water damage right out of the homeowner’s vocabulary. Pure, warrantied waterproof protection allows them to leisurely enjoy their outdoor space.

Paver System Waterproofed and Exceptional Deck Railing

Why we love this deck…

The homeowners of this deck wanted to enjoy a surface of pavers but wisely knew that waterproofing still had to be considered. Duradek’s protected systems of sheet vinyl deck waterproofing are the perfect solution. Tiledek is intended for use under stone tile or pavers applied with thin-set mortar, and Plazadek is intended for use under floating pavers using a pedestal system. With this deck, the real “wow” factor comes from the incredible PUP topless glass railing system. With multifunctional posts, this railing system can accommodate different heights and angles and provides an excellent option for decks with a view like this one overlooking the pool.

Waterproofed with Water Management

Why we love this deck…

Multi-residential roof decks bring huge advantages by increasing the value of the property and adding more useable space. With so many residences in close proximity, privacy can also be a valued commodity, and so enclosed decks offer an extra element of privacy that allows for personalization. Sometimes this can create extra challenges in water management with drainage and routing; but with Duradek’s more than 4 decades of experience in waterproofing, we know it’s all in the details and the skills of the installer. Duradek installation techniques mastered by the team at Duradek MidAtlantic ensure the water is never trapped on an enclosed deck and risk infiltrating the home. With drains, scuppers, and slope, this enclosed deck keeps waterproof integrity and allows the residents to extend the interior of their home to their outdoor space.

Exceptional Deck Details

Why we love this deck…

Once again, the exceptional skills of the trained Duradek installer make an ordinary deck extraordinary. The Okanagan Flint vinyl surface receives superior detailing in the gutters that require highly skilled technique. In this instance, the gutters were completely enveloped by Duradek vinyl around a drain, then filled with stone to create a unique and attractive border. Additionally, the deck specialists at Citywide Sundecks were able to create a custom top rail from wood to go over the Durarail aluminum picket railings.  While this custom wood feature will require regular maintenance, the rest of the railing and deck surfaces will retain their original waterproof integrity throughout their lifespan. For those whose budgets allow, Durarail offers an authentic-looking wood grain finish for top rails that looks just like real wood but will not require any maintenance like sanding or re-staining.

Things are Looking Up for this Deck Made for Looking Up

The cracks in this deck were significant and causing damage until Duradek Waterproofing and Renovation in Texas solved the problem with Duradek.

Why we love this deck…

The stars at night are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas….. but these homeowners were always looking down. Looking down at the awful cracks on their deck. The prior deck surface suffered a very common scenario of a failed cementitious coating where deep, long cracks in the surface resulted in water infiltration and high risk of wood rot below. No matter how many times they attempted to fill the cracks, the waterproofing was compromised for good, and the deck needed to be replaced. Duradek Forest Floor Alder was selected and provided a comparable depth of texture to the prior troweled on coating, and the color blended harmoniously to keep the exterior design they had intended to achieve. But more importantly, the adhered Duradek vinyl membrane and heat-welded seams mean complete, reliable waterproof integrity.  Now, thanks to Duradek Waterproofing and Renovations, for these homeowners, things are looking up!

Turning a Maintenance Area into a Useable Recreational Roof Deck

Flat roof deck
Leisure space is created on an otherwise maintenance accessed flat roof by Duradek MidAtlantic.

Why we love this deck…

Many flat roof decks accessible by maintenance teams are finished with a traditional torch-down membrane which is an acceptable roof waterproofing method, but by no means attractive or desirable to walk on. This flat roof had enough space to make a leisure area and Duradek was able to provide the roofing membrane and walking surface in a single product, creating extra, livable space that previously might only be used by maintenance crews. Drains, scuppers, and over-flow water-routing are details that keep the waterproof integrity intact on this enclosed deck.

Driftwood at the Doorway

Why we love this deck…

Duradek is continually researching and developing vinyl patterns that provide a stylish look for homeowners that value their outdoor design schemes. In honor of Duradek’s 40th year in the marketplace, the new ‘Legacy’ line of vinyl was created to meet the need of homeowners who want their exterior design to emulate the natural environment around them. This entranceway displays the first photos of Legacy Driftwood vinyl, the first in 3 gorgeous options in this all-new line. Driftwood offers the look of aged, sun-bleached wood but with all of the advantages of low-maintenance vinyl waterproof performance.

Barnwood Deck Becomes Them

Why we love this deck…

The second offering in the new ‘Legacy’ line, this deck finished in Barnwood vinyl is the first of its kind installed for many happy Duradek customers…and that is what it is all about. The owners of this home were absolutely thrilled by the look of the faux wood finish and the simulated appearance of wood grains extending across their deck – but with no maintenance that actual wood requires. The color blends well with their exterior design and the heat-welded seams provide waterproof protection that is arguably the most reliable protection available in a single-applied product.

Another First From Across the Pacific

Why we love this deck…

Besides the fact that this deck is beautifully and reliably waterproofed, it is the first deck completed by our new Duradek Dealer in Auckland, New Zealand. Deck Masters NZ, LLC. With coastal views that are envied world-wide, there are plenty of decks to benefit from the advantages of  Duradek waterproofing. Duradek is manufactured with built-in UV inhibitors to withstand the beautiful south pacific sunshine and will protect from the coastal rains.

Beyond the Balcony

A single, simple solution for roof decks and balconies by Duradek MidAtlantic.

Why we love this deck…

Multi-residential townhome developments have often incorporated balconies for outdoor space when there is no space for a small yard. While this is a benefit to homeowners, it is doubled when a roof deck is added as well. This extra outdoor space is a valued commodity, but many traditional methods of waterproofing flat roofs have made them a point of vulnerability requiring multiple products and installation stages. Duradek is building code approved as a classified roofing membrane, so builders, property managers, and residents can be confident the living space below is well protected. It is also a building code approved pedestrian surface, so Duradek is a single product solution where other systems require two or three products and stages. These decks are complimented by Durarail’s low-maintenance aluminum railing system, so no strata or property managers have to address ongoing maintenance for these residential outdoor spaces.

Above and Below – Open and Closed

Why we love this deck…

The duality of Duradek’s advantages are double-doubled in this deck makeover. Waterproofing and attractive surface on the top of the deck with protected space below. In this residence, the protection goes two ways. On one side of the deck, there is living space below that is fully protected with the roof-grade waterproof protection of Duradek vinyl. Under the other side of the deck, there is an open area for a covered parking spot. When there is no closed-in garage, this effective residential alternative protects a vehicle from direct exposure to the elements. Plus there are double the advantages of low maintenance railing with two different Durarail styles incorporated into the deck. Traditional picket railing surrounds the barbecue area overlooking the yard, but on the street side of the deck, frosted glass railings provide privacy for deck leisure time.

Boathouse Made Beautiful with Barnwood

Why we love this deck…

This boathouse received the ultimate makeover with a roof deck by Duradek. Legacy Barnwood emulates the appearance of wood and blends beautifully with the natural surroundings of this deck. The previous, failed system was permitting water leaks onto the boat below, and water infiltration required replacement of joists, substrate, and railings. Not only was the job completed beautifully, but Duradek installers from Duradek of Georgia were able to complete the project on a tight timeline to be completed for a graduation party.

The Legacy Continues

Why we love this deck…

Well, this is actually two separate projects; but they are our first photos of the third offering in the ‘Legacy’ line – Pebble Beach from Saskatoon Deck Shop and North Vancouver Sundecks and we couldn’t be prouder! This remarkable aggregate pebble appearance blends well with several different outdoor design schemes with neutral colors in both brown and grey tones. Perhaps a bit of a late offering in the trend of faux aggregate vinyl deck surfaces, Duradek took their time to get this outstanding pattern just right. Much easier to install than actual aggregate pebble, the vinyl deck surface is textured enough to be slip-resistant, yet smooth enough to be comfortable on bare feet.

Second Level Deck Makeover Saves Lower Ceiling Details

Why we love this deck…

When deck waterproofing fails, it is bad enough to deal with the problems on the surface, but the real damage is happening below. This home had a beautiful wood ceiling above their lower-level deck, but when the waterproofing failed above, the water infiltration was beginning to damage that excellent exterior design detail, which would be very expensive to replace. Duradek installers were able to complete the job before permanent damage and replacement were required so the homeowners could enjoy a beautiful deck surface above and keep their ceiling protected below.

A Roof Deck Made for Leisurely Lifestyle

Why we love this deck…

This deck shows the work it takes to maintain a Duradek vinyl deck, and that is why we love it so much. Outdoor living space is meant to be enjoyed.  It is about leisure time. It is about family time. It is one of the happiest parts of a home. When the deck is over living space, homeowners don’t need to worry about water leaking through with Duradek’s warrantied protection. With Duradek, vinyl we want your biggest deck concern to be how to accessorize it.

Elevated Deck for Protected Patio and Fantastic View

Why we love this deck…

Sometimes the benefit of roof-grade waterproofing is just as important when the deck is not over enclosed living space. The advantages of a lower level deck underneath a second level deck protected by Duradek include a dry space when it rains and shaded space in the peak of the summer sun. This poolside deck gains both of those advantages along with the freedom from maintenance chores. It is the perfect place for entertaining or just leisurely enjoying the fantastic view.

These Duradek homeowners can just relax an enjoy the view.
