A rooftop deck can be one of the trickiest areas to finish or refinish. A rooftop deck is, first and foremost, a roof. It therefore needs to be able to protect the structure below from the elements. As a deck, it also needs to be comfortable and safe for people to walk upon. It needs to be able to retain its waterproof and slip-proof properties over time and after much foot traffic. Whether the deck in question covers the entire flat roof of an apartment building, or is a small deck over the garage of a private home, DecTec PVC roofing membrane is best able to meet the competing needs of the space.
DecTec roofing membranes provide a flat roof membrane solution that meets all North-American building code specifications. This membrane provides unmatched protection for the structure beneath. In addition, the DecTec PVC membrane offers a comfortable textured surface that is ideal for use on decks. It allows deck owners to avoid the rough surface and splinters of wood decking materials.
