While this year’s IBS featured a huge variety of decking materials, Duradek stands out from the numerous composite deck products and the pvc deck products because Duradek is actually a waterproofing membrane…best described as a ‘Walkable Roofing Membrane’.

As Duradek Sales Manager Kevin MacMillan explains, “it takes care of your waterproofing needs, your roofing needs and provides your walking surface…all in the same single-ply sheet.”

For those just becoming familiar with Duradek, learning about the original single-ply vinyl sheet waterproofing membrane that is walkable directly after the point of installation brings an element of excitement to a variety of projects. Perhaps you are already aware that Duradek Ultra membranes are roofing approved and can guarantee waterproof protection on roof decks over living space.

But are you aware of some of the details to look at when comparing decking options?

There is a lot more to consider than just the finished look and the installation price. Waterproofing performance and required deck maintenance can vary greatly from product to product, so it is very important to do your homework before you invest your valuable time and money into a home improvement project.
