Duradek is the only waterproof vinyl decking manufacturer to date that offers an openly available, written, three-tiered vinyl deck warranty.
1 - Manufacturer’s Waterproofing Warranty
Duradek’s Ultra woven backed waterproofing warranty protects the homeowner from any leaks resulting from a manufacturing defect for a duration of 15 years from the date of installation. Duradek’s vinyl deck warranty guarantees to repair or replace the affected portion of the Duradek Woven Backed Ultra 60 mil vinyl during that time frame as per the terms and conditions in the written warranty.
For Duradek Ultra Non-Woven Backed (Okanagan Fuzzy Backed) 60 mil membrane, the waterproofing warranty is for a duration of 10 years. Typically, a ‘Manufacturer’s defect causing leak’ would likely be discovered within a year (after it has passed through all seasons), so a 10-year warranty offers more than enough consumer protection.
2 - Appearance Warranty
Duradek is one of the only vinyl decking companies to offer a written Appearance Warranty for up to 5 years (on our Ultra 60 mil membrane). If there is excessive discoloration over and above natural aging, Duradek protects the homeowner with product and replacement considerations. Our Non-Woven Backed membranes have 1-year protection for excessive discoloration.
3 - Workmanship Warranty
If an area on the deck needs to be redone due to an installation error, this would likely be covered by the workmanship warranty. Duradek’s authorized dealers assign the portion of the workmanship warranty individually. This provides assurance to the homeowner that the product has been installed with professional waterproofing details and there will be no leaks as a result of poor installation.
