Access Decking Solutions at JLC Live

Anyone who is in the business of deck building or sub-contracting deck builders knows that decking is a specialty trade of its own and comes with its own unique challenges that can affect the overall integrity of the home; particularly in instances where the deck is on a roof deck over living space.

Information on this specialty trade is easily accessed at JLC Live from two excellent sources.

Register for Bill Leys’ education session “Construction and Waterproofing Methods for Walking Decks and Tile Covered Decks” which takes place on March 20th from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm.

Visit Duradek’s booth and talk to Duradek expert Steve McTaggart. Steve, who is the owner of Railing Pro, is Duradek’s authorized distributor in New England and the only local source of Duradek, the original vinyl deck membrane.

About Bill Leys

An authoritative voice in the deck building industry and a regular presenter at JLC Live events, Bill is a big enthusiast and promoter of encouraging best practices. Bill is a licensed contractor in California and owner of Since waterproof decks and/or tile-covered waterproof decks rate high on the list of components claimed to have construction defects, Bill’s session is an incredibly valuable 3 hours for any construction professional who takes on decking projects.

I am most looking forward to returning to Rhode Island (Newport is my hometown) and making New England contractors aware of the benefits that pedestrian traffic coatings offer over other methods in building and waterproofing roof decks,” says Bill in the weeks leading up to the show.

About Duradek

Duradek celebrates its 40th year in business this year and is very proud to have pioneered the use of sheet vinyl membranes as a deck waterproof surface and further developing it for building code approved use as a roofing membrane.

Whether your project requires an attractive, waterproof pedestrian surface on a deck or a waterproof membrane for use under tile or stone pavers, Duradek has the reliable waterproofing methods you need to protect the living area below.

If you are in the New England area and are interested in waterproofing and railing solutions for your decking projects, you can rely on Steve at Duradek of New England / Railing Pro who is Duradek’s own decking and waterproofing expert in New England. One of the main factors that make Duradek a superior choice for decking projects is that Duradek professionals understand the critical details involved in waterproofing projects which can be a huge advantage over less specialized building professionals.

Moisture is the Enemy

Duradek is a reliable method of resisting the elements and protecting a home from water damage and this is partly due to an excellent membrane product that has proven itself over a 40-year history but is also due to the skill of its applicators who are familiar with the details involved in professional waterproofing.

To keep informed on this critical topic, you might want to check out two other sessions on the JLC Live education track:
