Vinyl Decking Review…
There are a number of things to consider while completing a vinyl decking review for your new sundeck, roof deck or balcony. Duradek has been in the Vinyl Decking Industry since 1974 and is the pioneer of using PVC as a Waterproof Vinyl Decking and Roofing Membrane.
There are 3 primary things to take into consideration while Reviewing your Vinyl Decking and Flat Roof options;
1 – The Vinyl Decking itself (the Membrane)
2 – The Manufacturing Company
3 – The Applicating Company (the Vinyl Decking Installer)
In your review of the Vinyl Decking, you should consider the following questions;
Is the vinyl decking approved as a Roofing Membrane?
Is the vinyl decking approved as a “Pedestrian Traffic” Roofing Membrane?
What is the warranty on the Vinyl Decking?
In your review of the Manufacturing Company, you should consider the following;
How long have they been in business?
Do they offer a Manufacturer’s Warranty for the Waterproofing? For the Vinyl System? For the Appearance?
Have been around long enough to go through a warranty cycle?
In your review of the Applicating Company (The Vinyl Decking Installer), you should consider the following;
Have they been trained by the Manufacturer?
Do they understand Building Code Requirements, Building Envelope Issues, as well as Vinyl Decking Installation?
Do they offer a separate Workmanship Warranty?
