The old liquid applied and concrete topping products were the only options previously available, and they were failing repeatedly. Property owners and builders complained about leaks, unsightly appearance, expensive repairs and time-consuming maintenance. Duradek recognized the need for waterproofing to be performed by Trained Applicators, and as result, all Duradek Dealers go through an extensive training course - Lakeview Deck & Rail is one of those Trained and Authorized Dealers.

The Problem

This wood deck was situated over living space and had two methods of moisture management in place, yet it was still leaking in all of the critical detail areas. The first level of protection was waterproofing through a traditional felt and tar on the roof under the deck boards. The secondary water management approach was utilizing a ceiling system that caught water and re-routed it to a trough. While this was intended as a ‘back-up’ system, it was clear that neither approach was working to protect the living area below from leaks.

The Duradek Solution

Duradek dealer, Lakeview Deck and Rail knew what needed to be done to resolve the leak issues for good. To start, they tore off all of the existing deck and failed waterproofing. They established a slope with new framing on one foot centers, and installed all post blockings. Substrate preparation requires untreated plywood which is an environmental advantage over chemically treated wood the new substrate was prepped by sheeting 3/4″ select fir T&G plywood and filling all joints to make it perfectly smooth for the application of the Duradek Ultra Cork Macchiato vinyl. Lastly, the installation of an aluminum picket railing system gave the homeowners a beautiful, low-maintenance new deck.

Job Notes

The homeowners on this project wanted a reliable solution, but at a reasonable price. To do the job right would be a pricy undertaking, so the homeowners carefully considered their options. After a year of frequent questions to Duradek dealer, Lakeview Deck and Rail, the homeowners decided to go ahead with Duradek. After the project was completed, these customers provided unexpected bonus tips to the crew which showed how very happy they were with their new, leak-free Duradek deck and the professionalism of its installers.
