Duradek Announces Brand Refresh & New Logo | May 15, 2017

Surrey, BC, May 10, 2017: Duradek™, the original vinyl decking and leader of the vinyl decking industry since 1974, is proud to announce a brand refresh and new logo.
 
The new Duradek logo follows the launch of an all-new Duradek website and it is the cornerstone of our brand refresh. This new brand identity keeps the traditional, recognizable features that the Duradek logo has maintained over the last 4 decades, but with a new graphic representation that offers a modern look to take the Duradek family of products into the future.
 
The clean minimalism of the new logo is representative of the nature of Duradek vinyl membranes themselves, with the simplicity of a professional installation and the ease of a worry-free, low maintenance waterproofing solution.
 
The timing of this brand refresh is aligned with a shift in management at Duradek. Co-owners, brothers John Ogilvie and Bob Ogilvie, pass the torch of day-to-day management to the team of leaders they have mentored over the previous decade and more. While the Ogilvie brothers still maintain operational management at a corporate level, they are proud of the team that carries the Duradek traditions forward.
 
“Having spent a lifetime growing up with the Duradek brand, it is a privilege for me to introduce a refreshed corporate identity to multi-generations of Duradek waterproofing experts…and to the home owners whose decks we are all proud to protect,” says Jennifer Ogilvie Brackett, Duradek Operations Manager.
 
The new logo update for Duradek™ and its Durarail™ and Tiledek™ brands will roll out throughout 2017.

The Legacy Continues with Desert Quartz Vinyl Decking | September 7, 2016

September 7, 2016 – Duradek is proud to announce the release of Duradek Ultra Legacy 'Desert Quartz' - a 4th colour in the well-received "Legacy" line of designer 60 mil vinyl membranes that emulates the look of natural surfaces with the low-maintenance durability of waterproof vinyl.
 
Its lighter base offers reflective qualities while a cleverly designed speckle pattern adds depth and style; as well as an effective background to camouflage light organic sediment that can accumulate on an exposed deck surface. This follows the introduction of the existing Legacy line:
 
Duradek Ultra Legacy Pebble Beach
Pebble Beach brings a remarkable aggregate pebble appearance to outdoor spaces in a simple, one-step application.
 
Duradek Ultra Legacy Barnwood
Barnwood's warm, traditional wood grain appearance is resistant to the elements.
 
Duradek Ultra Legacy Driftwood
Driftwood's sun-aged faux wood look will keep your deck protected without ongoing maintenance.

LEGACY Barnwood received an increase of detailing with the addition of more 'wood grain' and striations to add rich character to this vinyl. The warm, traditional wood grain appearance is both attractive and resistant to the elements.
 
LEGACY Driftwood had the surface color lightened slightly and the addition of more 'wood grain' appearance and striations. This sun-aged faux wood looking vinyl will keep your deck protected without the maintenance that wood requires.
