Surrey, BC, June 12, 2017: Duradek™, the original vinyl decking since 1974 is proud to announce a ‘Duradek Donates a Deck’ program for a family in need in Greater Vancouver / Fraser Valley, BC.
Duradek Canada Ltd. has considered the numerous families that may be struggling in the very expensive Vancouver housing market and we want to give back to the community that has been supporting our local company for over 43 years. To do so, we’d like to do what we do best – provide a really great low-maintenance waterproof deck.
The team at Duradek is stepping up to help one special family in need with a deck renovation. Duradek will provide the selected applicant with:
- Duradek waterproof vinyl decking
- Durarail powder coated aluminum railings
- installation of both vinyl decking and railing.
Applications will be accepted from now until August 15th, 2017. (Click for Application Form Here).
Selected applicant will be chosen by Duradek from all submissions received and will be announced on August 30th, 2017.
Duradek Canada is a local, family owned and operated business that cares about community, family and a safe and happy quality of life.
Operations Manager, Jennifer Ogilvie Brackett said, “This is something we’ve been wanting to do for a long time. We’ve always been proud to support our community and if we can make a difference for at least one family in need of a little help, it will make us feel great. If at the same time we can raise awareness on the importance of deck waterproofing for safety, then we are motivated in our mission to keep decks a safe place for families all over the world to enjoy for decades.”
Following the North America Deck & Railing Association’s (NADRA) Deck Safety Month in May, Duradek thought about the estimated 40 million decks over 20 years old in North America. If only 1% of those are unsafe, that’s 40,000 potentially unsafe decks. (See NADRA’s Deck Safety Checklist)
Unlike other areas of a home, deck maintenance is not optional. It is an often overlooked, but necessary task to ensure safety. If a wood deck has not been regularly maintained for waterproofing and the moisture penetrates the wood, wood rot and deterioration is inevitable. This can lead to structural vulnerabilities hidden below the surface.
Having a beautiful deck to spend time on gives families a place to gather to create their special memories they pass along for generations. From simple barbeques to home weddings, a deck is shared by families as much as any other room of the home. Duradek will help at least one family enjoy the gift of a new deck that will be waterproof protected for many years.
If you would like to nominate a family in need of a little help with their deck, download our application form and submit your application with photos of deck to be replaced to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 15th.
