Duradek Vinyl Decking Installation Services Grand Bend, Ontario

Hi Legacy fans, this week we were out in beautiful (but still frosty) Grand Bend, Ontario working on a home near Lake Huron. This is a brand new build, and it is a bit of a unique job as we were working with 4 different flat roofs/deck sections, and two different materials that are being installed.

One one system we were installing a Duradek vinyl deck system. You’ve seen us do these before, and we’re going to give you a bit of a pitch here 😉 Duradek vinyl decking is a popular choice for homeowners due to its numerous benefits:

  • Waterproof: It seals the deck, protecting spaces below from water damage.
  • Durable: Resistant to weather, it lasts many years with little wear.
  • Low Maintenance: Requires only simple cleaning, no need for sanding, staining, or painting.
  • Aesthetic Variety: Offers many colors, patterns, and textures to suit any home style.
  • Safety: Features a slip-resistant surface for a safer walking area.
  • Cost-Effective: Although initially more expensive, its longevity and low upkeep costs make it economical over time.
  • Eco-Friendly: Some options are made from recyclable materials, appealing to environmentally conscious homeowners.

Duradek’s combination of practicality, durability, and aesthetic appeal makes it an excellent decking solution, offering value and safety with minimal upkeep. Here at Legacy Flat Roofing we are a huge fan of Durdek and have done installations all over Ontario. Ok sales pitch is over!

The Duradek section is going to be pretty amazing when it’s done. There is a set of stairs leading up and out onto a deck overlooking the lake, and the client is going to have a hot tub installed, so this area is going to be used year round. The Duradek system is going to be the perfect application for this area, we’re excited to be tasked with the install. There is a wall that we have put drainage holes in so scuppers can be installed, and there is a slight angle directing water to those sections so the entire deck will be protected. We also waterproofed the hip wall so that is protected, and carpenters will finish that off with a different material.

There is also another Duradek system being installed in a walk out deck area where the client can walk out of a room at the front of the house and enjoy a great view of the lake.

On the other sections we are installing a 2 ply mod bit system, that will go on the flat roof that will cover the stairway entrance from the penthouse, and there is a garage/living space that we will put the 2ply system on. Both of those areas see no foot traffic, so the 2ply system is perfect for this, and is very durable against the mixed weather near the lake.

It’s all new framing and wood substrate. This may sound weird, but we get pretty excited when we come in after an exceptional framer has done a great job laying a foundation for us to do our quality work on.
