Duradek Announces ‘Duradek Donates a Deck’

Duradek Announces their ‘Duradek Donates a Deck’ Program for a local Lower Mainland Family

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.  (Download Application 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 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 to duradek@duradek.com by August 15th.

Duradek Exclusive Offer

15% Discount on Deck Rebuilds After Sandy

While we at Duradek cannot begin to fully appreciate the destruction that eastern U.S. residents faced with Hurricane Sandy and the amount of work required for cleaning up the damage left behind, we certainly would like to assist in the rebuilding process and help those who dealt with property losses get back to their quality of life on the east coast.

Duradek Discount Offer for Hurricane Victims

Duradek, in conjunction with our local Distributor Specialty Building Systems, would like to assist these homeowners in our own small way by contributing 15% off of the cost of material for our Duradek vinyl membranes in waterproofing your new or reconstructed decks. This offer goes out to all residents in the affected regions in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

Working with Specialty Building Systems, our eastern American distributor in NY, NJ and PA, homeowners in these disaster regions may request 15% off the cost of vinyl when they choose a Duradek dealer for their deck rebuilding. Duradek and Specialty Building Systems will present this offer for one year to the anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, but we will require that some proof of hurricane damage be submitted for this special discount offer (photographs or a copy of an insurance claim would suffice).

It doesn’t matter if your previous deck was a Duradek deck, wood deck, a composite deck, a fiberglass deck, an EPDM roof deck or even a competitive vinyl deck…Duradek will help you waterproof your re-build!

Choosing a Duradek dealer for your deck waterproofing takes all of the guesswork out of choosing a contractor. All Duradek installers are trained and authorized, so you don’t have to worry about the skill or reliability of the people working on your home.

If your deck was affected by Sandy, you or your insurance or restoration company can contact Specialty Building Systems at 1-800-765-9865 or email sbsddek@verizon.net for peace of mind in your rebuilding.

In addition to all other building code approvals, Duradek has been tested to show our Duradek Ultra Vinyl meets the requirements and received evaluation reports for both Wind Uplift and for Pull-Off Testing for Edge Flashing.

We know that this small gesture cannot make up for the losses and the trauma that Sandy delivered, but we sincerely hope that we can do our small part in helping you take back your quality of life and enjoy your outdoor living space.

Creating Value in Real Estate and Quality of Life

Hidden Benefits of Duradek – The Walkable Roofing Membrane

March 10, 2012 | When it comes to determining the value of a resi­dential property, square footage of living space is one of the primary considerations, but many hom­eowners take for granted that their living space is not restricted to the interior of their home. Outdoor living space is a cherished commodity and although its value is certainly subjective for the individual, there is no question that it adds value to the property. Particularly in the case of roof top decks which are fast becoming a ma­jor value-added feature in urban developments.

For years, the desire for outdoor living space has driven city dwellers to the suburbs. Dreams of family barbecues and lazy days swaying in a hammock can be unexpectedly marred by the reality of weekly lawn cutting and annual sanding and staining of the deck. Suddenly the ultimate place of relaxation becomes a labor intensive maintenance chore. But now, urbanites that have a desire for outdoor living space do not have to… please click here to read more.

Duradek – A Practical Product in Colors That Comfort

January 9, 2012 | In late 2011, Duradek, the original Walkable Roofing Membrane introduced two new colors in its Ultra Cork line of 60 mil Vinyl that caught on faster than any other color in the company’s 37 year history.

Joining the initial, organic-looking Ultra Cork Natural that launched this popular pattern, the Ultra Cork Macchiato and Ultra Cork Espresso offer deeper, richer color options to the earthy texture of the Ultra Cork line.

With the market demonstrating a desire for naturally inspired colors and textures, Duradek also introduced its newest product line with Ultra Forest Floor. The flagship color for this line is Birch’ which offers a distinctive blend of subtle earthy, neutral tones with a gentle fossilized leaf pattern throughout, reminiscent of an actual forest floor.

This unique product is an innovative example of Duradek’s leadership in outdoor flooring.

Exclusively installed by specially trained professionals, Duradek has been the leader in waterproof roofing membranes for over 35 years and provides low maintenance, stylish solutions for outdoor living space.
