Waterproof & Fire Resistant Surface Protection
Today at Chase Construction North West Inc., we would like to feature another reputable and innovative manufacturer that we work with, DecTec®. For over 35 years, DecTec® has created and delivered waterproofing and roofing solutions for decks, balconies, walkways and many other types of exterior surface applications. The company is deemed North America’s leading innovator in pedestrian traffic bearing PVC membranes, along with accessories and components. With DecTec’s products, water intrusion is no longer a concern as has been shown by proven technology and proven performance!
The Unique & Proven Benefits
What makes the DecTec® products so unique and beneficial? First, is the impervious water barrier incorporated into all products. Either a water-based or solvent-based adhesive strongly welds DecTec’s membrane directly onto the deck substrate. The membrane roll stock is heat welded together to establish a fully waterproof seam, after its initial adhesion to the substrate, and these processes combined deem the finished product stronger than the membrane itself. Next, DecTec products are fire resistant. DecTec Guardian is the only deck membrane in the industry to achieve a class C fire rating when directly adhered to 5/8” T&G plywood. They are able to achieve this through their unique fiberglass reinforcement along with exclusive spread coat process. In a telling trial video, the DecTec brand membrane literally self-extinguishes once the source of the flame is removed. This is due to the polymers natural ability whereas lesser quality deck membrane utilize inexpensive fillers as a means to control cost, and therefore, their products continue to burn. For those burning hot summer months, DecTec has incorporated a cool feel to their foot traffic products which makes it cool to the touch and shoes optional. Lastly, DecTec offers peace of mind with their 10 and 25 year limited Membrane warranty.
