Waterproof Decking Options For Maintenance Free Beauty
We love decks and balconies because they extend our living space out into the fresh air while keeping the dirtier aspects of nature at bay. While traditional wooden decks can serve you well for a while before the weather takes its final toll on them, during their lifespans, they will need a large amount of maintenance to remain safe and sound. However, thanks to a global turn toward recycling and environmentally friendly building systems, you now have waterproof decking options built from reused materials that provide the additional benefit of needing almost no maintenance – ever! Just a regular cleaning from time to time and the deck remains worry-free for decades.
Waterproof Decking Options – 3 Products in 1
It all starts with NexGEN’s DryJoist system, the waterproof substructure that allows for 100% waterproof area below your chosen type of top boards. Made from recycled aluminum and powder coated for a durable finish, the DryJoist system channels water away from the main building while providing a low profile, structural subframe support over long lengths (spans up to 1.8metres) that never rusts, rots or mildews. Termites find no home, and you needn’t consider any short-lived and difficult membrane application under your top boards to create a waterproof ceiling for the living space below the deck.
Waterproof Decking Options – Lasting Top Boards
Top the DryJoist under decking waterproof system with our truly beautiful capped composite decking boards that never twist, warp, splinter, fade, rot, invite termites or mildew. With our premium boards, made from 60% recovered hardwood and 40% UV-stabilised high-density polyethylene, you’ll never sand, paint or seal your deck again. The special co-extruded non-porous surface layer even resists scratching, staining and fading!
Because we engineer our decking systems for simple long-term endurance, they make great DIY projects. Plus, we’re happy to take calls from installers needing a little help.
