Honoring the Dedication of Duradek Professional Waterproofing Specialists – Milestones of Years of Support from our Dealers
As the premium brand of vinyl deck waterproofing membranes available only as an installed product to homeowners, Duradek relies on the dedication and skill of our network of Dealers and their installers throughout North America. These independent businesses skillfully represent the Duradek brand by installing the product with the techniques specific to deck and flat roof waterproofing that Duradek has developed in its 40+ year history.
While Duradek continues to train new dealers each year, we cherish the relationship and commitment from the dealers that have supported Duradek over the course of the company’s history. It was our proud honor to acknowledge some milestones of our long-time dealers at the company’s convention in Mexico in the spring of 2017. Here’s a look at the recipients of our Service Awards.
10 Years of Support – Deck Star Restorations
We are very proud to honor Deck Star Restorations (formerly Full Deck Restorations) for over 10 years of support as a Duradek dealer. Owner, Trevor Deighton, is a very unique installation specialist given that his history with Duradek actually began at our head office as a staff member of Duradek Canada.
For several years, Trevor was Duradek Canada’s in-house certified trainer, teaching the specialized techniques of Duradek’s waterproofing details to new installers. Eventually, Trevor chose to take his expertise to create his own Duradek installation business and has been one of our top dealers ever since.
Trevor’s primary area of service is beautiful White Rock, BC where exposure to wind and coastal moisture demand both the highest level of product performance and installation skill for long lasting, beautiful decks. With miles of amazing coastline views, White Rock home owners cherish their decks…and they are in great hands with Trevor at Deck Star Restorations.
10 Years of Support – HTR Duradek Inc.
It is an honor to acknowledge HTR Duradek for 10 years of support. In only such a brief time, owners Mike McGowan and Tyler Gosse along with Mike’s wife Brenda have elevated the representation of the Duradek brand in the Greater Toronto, Ontario area to set a high standard for Duradek dealers all across Canada. Their stand-out performance highlights were also acknowledged as recipients of our ‘Extreme Initiative’ award for Canadian Dealers.
The benefits of their professionalism bring Duradek’s waterproofing advantages to contractors, property managers and home owners that wisely choose their services. One look at online review sites, and it is no secret that HTR Duradek takes pride in their work and their professional representation of the Duradek brand.
10 Years of Support – Duradek of Utah
It is our privilege to honor Duradek of Utah for 10 years of support. In only 10 years, Duradek of Utah (a division of Dek Max) has taken the Duradek brand from being relatively unknown to becoming a trend setting building product in Salt Lake City and the state of Utah.
Led by owner Matt McClure and his wife Samantha, Duradek of Utah has taken the building and architectural communities of Utah by storm, creating a demand for reliably waterproofed roof decks.
The influence Duradek of Utah has garnered in Salt Lake City was achieved by educating the architectural and building communities on Creating Value in Real Estate and Quality of Life (article). With the professional initiatives and the excellent work Duradek of Utah is doing with educating the local architectural groups in Utah, Salt Lake City is positioned to embrace roof decks as much as any major metropolitan harbor city.

20 Years of Support – Duradek MidAtlantic
We could not be prouder to acknowledge Duradek MidAtlantic’s 20-year history as a Duradek distributor, overseeing one of the densest residential regions in the U.S. and consistently achieving top performance of Duradek’s entire U.S. Distribution network.
Duradek MidAtlantic began its operations as a division of a home improvement company and was later co-owned by John Harlow who led the way with their exclusive relationship with Duradek. They began as an installation company to introduce our vinyl membrane to the local market. Within 5 years, Duradek MidAtlantic had developed a substantial Dealer network and in just over 10 years had to move to a larger location to meet the ever-growing demand for Duradek and Durarail.
Owner John Harlow has since retired and Duradek MidAtlantic is now run by his daughter, Jamie Kotanko. Duradek MidAtlantic is another example of how the Duradek family extends generations and continues to provide excellence in the deck waterproofing industry.
25 Years of Support – Duradek Northwest
It is a privilege to acknowledge nearly 25 years of support from Duradek Northwest, a division of Washington Alaska Roof Systems, Inc. who is our exclusive Duradek distributor for Alaska, Washington, Oregon and western Idaho and Montana.
Owner, Matthew Whale, has earned a solid reputation as a roof deck specialist after having already achieved success as a roofing supply distributor. The addition of Duradek vinyl to his product lines, his existing roofing expertise and his reliable knowledge and professionalism has him widely recognized in the roofing industry as a true waterproofing expert. Decking resources like decksgo.com (formerly Ideas for Deck Designs) have turned to Matt’s insight on the topic of deck building and waterproofing for a featured interview.
Duradek Northwest is also a multi-generational business with Matt’s son Mike joining him with his company, his son James with his own Duradek Dealership, and his daughter April positioned to join the Duradek Northwest team soon. With their strong network of trained, professional installers, Duradek Northwest is the premier source of reliable deck waterproofing in the pacific northwest to bring homeowners the advantages of complete waterproof protection that is so highly needed in such a damp coastal environment.
25 Years of Support – Windeck Ltd.
We are very proud to acknowledge nearly 25 years of support from Windeck Ltd. Based in Winnipeg, Windeck Ltd. is Manitoba’s exclusive distributor of Duradek waterproofing products.
Windeck is a family owned and operated division of M.H. Dueck Enterprise Ltd., an industry leader for over 37 years. Mel Dueck, president and founder, his wife Judy, and their dedicated team have built a solid reputation based on excellent customer service, integrity and the most superior building products available on the market.
Windeck’s expertise literally spans generations, and the Dueck family are all active members of the company; with sons Brandon and Jordan having bought into the company they grew up with and now hold ownership as well. Windeck’s down-to-earth family values contribute to the high level of service they provide, knowing they are protecting the homes of families in their community. Duradek is very grateful to know that the team at Windeck is a big part of the Duradek family and we look forward to supporting the next generation of Duecks as they carry on with their family’s legacy.
30 Years of Support – Kelowna Duradek
Located right in the region where Duradek was first conceived, Kelowna Duradek (a division of Circle Developments) has been installing Duradek for over 30 years. Kelowna Duradek is one of Duradek’s original franchise locations with exclusive territory rights in the area.
Owner, Brian Radke, whose larger-than-life personality often has him off adventuring in his second home in Costa Rica, has developed a top-notch team to oversee the business when he is away, notably Jennifer Stone who is Kelowna Duradek’s primary go-to person on a day-to-day basis.
Kelowna Duradek’s success (in what is probably the most competitive region in North America for vinyl decking) is evident with expansion in recent years to service the Penticton area as well. With decades of experience in waterproof decking, the Okanagan region of British Columbia is assured that Kelowna Duradek is confident that they can meet the decking needs specific to the region.
30 Years of Support – Raildek Distribution
Raildek Distribution is a direct source for Duradek vinyl in the Greater Toronto area, supplying a skilled network of Duradek dealers throughout Ontario. Created by owner James Simpson in 1984, Raildek has over 30 years of history representing the Duradek brand.
James came from an extensive, hands-on construction background and he recognized the need for maintenance free outdoor living products that could withstand the extreme climate for a long-lasting value to home owners. James knows that homeowners who enjoy their outdoor living space want to be spending their time enjoying it, not maintaining it. The relationship with Duradek was a natural fit!
With a strong network of authorized Duradek dealers, more Duradek vinyl moves through Raildek’s doors than any other Canadian Duradek distributor every year. Raildek is also the location that provides the product for notable HGTV programs that have used Duradek like The Builder Boss and Income Property.
