In this short video Grant Barlow explains why our vinyl waterproof deck skins last so long. In all honesty, we don’t really know how long they’ll last, but we’re comfortable enough to give you a thirty year guarantee against their leaking.
Because we’ve got thirty-five years experience with waterproofing decks. In that time we’ve never seen anything else developed with anywhere near the longevity properties of brands of deck skins like DuraDek.
Realistically, you may decide to change the color, or style, of you deck skins long before they are functionally obsolete. If you think of your deck skins as you do carpeting inside your home, you’ll understand my point. Have you ever changed your carpeting — even though there was really nothing wrong with it? Didn’t you just grow tired of it?
This is a photograph of the great XXX. It has one of the earliest forms of elevated deck design. If our vinyl waterproof deck skins had been applied when those decks were first built. . .
I’M NOT SAYING OUR DECK SKINS WOULD HAVE LASTED THIS LONG — BUT, I CAN’T SAY WITH CERTAINTY THAT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE!

Our vinyl waterproof deck skins can also be used as a waterproof under layer. Think of it as a pool or pond liner. What this means is: You can have all the wonderful, fantasitic waterproof advantages of vinyl deck skins (including a 30 year guarantee against leakage) — and then cover the deck skins with paving bricks, or weather-resistant carpeting, or, whatever you and your architect or designers dream up!
Wood decks rot, warp, and crack! While wood decks are attractive when first installed — they're a maintenance nightmare! We've had homeowners that just can't live without the look of a wooden elevated deck, use our deck skins as the base and then use the composite deck boards as the top material for their decks. Of course, this makes the deck hot to walk on in the direct sun. But, if you love the look of wood or brick, and you don't want the possibility of your deck ever leaking inside your home, this is an exceptionally good way to go. We can help you with all your choices and options. Call Grant today to talk about your specific "wish list"!
