Waterproofing your Deck

Waterproofing your Deck

For hundreds of year decks, balconies, patios and porches have been constructed with high-quality wood or durable high-grade concrete. The building or renovating a new patio, boathouse or even an entire apartment or commercial building is a major investment, and you want to be confident that your investment is protected. High-quality concrete will remain in peak condition for 4-6 years before our harsh Canadian climate will start to wear it down. Even the finest wooden decks rarely survive the past 15 years. Repairs and replacements are often expensive and ultimately ineffective because they don’t protect the entire system. PVC vinyl membranes from DecTec have solved that problem.

 Throughout our many years in the construction and exterior renovation industry, AllPro Roofing has seen everything there is to see, rotten wood, missing planks, cracks in concrete a meter long, we’ve seen it all. To fix and prevent these issues in the future our exterior professionals recommend a protective waterproofing system from DecTec.

Throughout the changing seasons, your concrete deck or balcony will go through hundreds of freeze/thaw cycles, expanding and contracting the concrete. Over time, concrete will begin to erode, crack and chip, if left unattended, these minor damages will end up being an expensive repair or replacement.

Wood can warp and chip over time leaving you or your guests with an unwanted splinter. Being a natural material wood is also susceptible to mould and mildew growth. Another disadvantage of a plain wooden deck is the constant maintenance to keep it looking and performing its best. With a DecTec PVC vinyl membrane, there is practically no maintenance at all, even light rains will have it looking like new.

A  DecTec waterproof system has a wide variety of applications, for example;  turn previously unusable space underneath decks and balconies into enjoyable and waterproof areas. Make the area around your pool safe for foot traffic with DecTec’s anti-slip grip. Own a gym or arena? Use DecTec’s anti-slip, anti-microbial formula is perfect for showers and locker rooms.
