Weatherdek is a PVC membrane flooring for use on deck and roof deck surfaces exposed to pedestrian traffic. Weatherdek is available in a number of different colors and patterns and creates a 100% waterproof deck surface.
Weatherdek is fully adhered to a smooth substrate using Weatherdek adhesives. Any joints in the membrane are overlapped by 1 inch and fully heat welded together to create a completely waterproof finish. The perimeters of the deck are then wrapped down over the outside edges, and wrapped up the inside walls and mechanically fastened. See our ‘Installation’ page for more details.
Weatherdek recommends substrates of ‘Plywood’ or ‘Concrete’. Weatherdek creates a waterproof surface so the substrate should have a built in slope to drain moisture away from the building. Weatherdek should not be installed over top of pressure treated plywood as the treatment chemicals can stain the Weatherdek membrane.
A Weatherdek Vinyl Deck surface could last up to 15-25 years depending upon the application, exposure and care of the deck.
Typically Weatherdek is priced by the square foot, as an installed product. There are many variables that effect pricing such as product thickness or pattern, job size, and job specific details.
