After waterproofing your deck with a urethane rubber decking system, you will notice that visitors take a second look at the area. The finish and neatness of the deck easily attracts attention. What viewers may not be aware of is that the aesthetics of the deck are secondary to why the deck has undergone waterproofing.
Protection is the utmost reason for the application of a urethane rubber decking system. With such protection, the durability of the deck is insured for many years to come. A professional provider who has experience in applying the system could assure you of quality and an easily maintainable finish. Thus it is imperative to get a reputable installer to do the work for you.
Auto and pedestrian deck systems have two key ingredients: the tough elastomeric waterproof coating and textured granules. The first ingredient’s job is to assure the deck remains water resistant. The second ingredient is traction or slip-resistance, and protection from scratches.
Urethane waterproofing is colour-stable. There are a number of colors that can be chosen to make the deck correspond with your colour scheme. The coating is also elastomeric which means that it will stretch when it is warm and cools through. The coating’s physical flexibility traits that withstand weather conditions prevent cracking which leads to water damage.
Another feature of the urethane rubber decking system is that it is slip resistant. Decks are expected to be high-traffic locations, especially for business establishments. The application of this kind of floor coating aids in accident-prevention because of its slip resistant quality.
The texture granules on the coating are very rough and are anchored in place by the coating. As well as providing great traction, this prevents premature wear and tear when loose dirt granules grind into the coating surface. These traits allow for long-lasting waterproofing deck systems. The texture will wear evenly and will not compromise the floor coating by coming loose.
With a urethane rubber decking system in place, you will enjoy durability and reliability. In terms of aesthetics, this waterproofing adds to the beauty and neatness of your deck area. There is no need for extensive maintenance because the floor coating does not need special equipment or chemicals to remain clean. You save money when you have this kind of deck system installed.
