Compare PVC to the Alternatives

When compared to products that perform the SAME function, consider the following:
  • PVC’s one-step application and longevity compare favorably to the multiple application and reapplication requirements of liquid-applied systems, saving many trips to the job, which in turn consumes less energy.
  • There is a huge weight savings benefiting the structural requirements and the energy consumption to transport as compared to an EPDM membrane with concrete pavers.
  • When compared to pressure treated wood, there are no chemicals leaching into the environment and likely double the life expectancy.
As a waterproof roof or deck, compared to alternatives, DURADEK IS THE GREENER CHOICE!
