Facts about Duradek™ Sheet Vinyl Decking

All products designed for exterior use will eventually be affected by Mother Nature. PVC, man’s best attempt at prolonging the life cycle of various building products, performs an admirable job in delaying the inevitable, but it will show some signs of degradation.

Warning Against the Effects of UV Rays

Rays on the skin are common. After a period of years these same rays may affect outdoor products and therefore manufacturers add UV screen and stabilizers to prolong the life of PVC (vinyl) materials. These screens are designed to resist the cracking, embrittlement and discoloration of the vinyl. The thicker the vinyl, the greater the resistance to degradation will be.

Appearance Versus Waterproofing

The prime function of the sheet vinyl product you’ve purchased is to waterproof the space beneath, to protect the structure from rot, eliminate maintenance and to provide a durable long lasting, skid-resistant surface. Its initial appearance will eventually deteriorate, but this does not affect its ability to provide waterproofing.


The strength of our system is in the method we use to weld the vinyl sheets together. The surface vinyls are overlapped and heat fused. The seam is visible. Other systems that use invisible seams that were butted together sometimes experienced waterproofing failures.


Like any other floor surface, vinyl may scuff if abused. Try to avoid dragging heavy objects over unprotected PVC. Skidding a bicycle tire, a roller blade or the edge of a running shoe across the vinyl creates friction, and the extreme heat and abrasion may possibly remove the print. Normal traffic will not damage the vinyl at all.
