Need a new deck? Replacing a wood or composite deck? Is your old waterproof roof deck needing repairs or replacing?
DeckExpert.com recommends the use of solid surface Division 7 Pedestrian Traffic Coatings/decking.
Solid surface decking offers considerable advantages over traditional wood decking and composite decking. Such as less maintenance, every 3-5 years instead of every year. The coatings found here at DeckExpert.com also provides a Waterproof roof, something wood and composite decks can't do. You'll need a roof system AND a deck with the old way of doing roof decks. Twice the work, more money.
There have also been a long history of recalls of various brands of composite decking, that fail in the sun and rain. Do you want to watch a big investment in unproven materials go down the drain? No recalls with any of the roof deck coatings found here at DeckExpert.com.
Ipe and exotic wood decking is very expensive. Redwood decking is expensive too and wood decks need a lot of maintenance-sand and seal every year...who wants to do that or pay for that? Add in the risk of splinters rot and staining...and solid surface splinter free low maintenance decks look very good in comparison.

GO AHEAD, WALK ALL OVER US! FOR YEARS AND YEARS WITHOUT WORRY.
DECK EXPERT RECOMMENDS YOU INSTALL WALKABLE SOLID SURFACE PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC COATINGS THAT ARE FIRE RETARDANT, EASY TO CARE FOR AND USUALLY COSTS LESS TO OWN THAN WOOD OR COMPOSITE.
Solid surface decking-concrete based systems offer Class A fire resistant ratings as well as "One Hour" fire ratings (some not all do) as per ASTM E-108, UL790 and or ASTM E-119 requirements.
Solid surface Pedestrian Traffic coatings offer waterproofing for roofs over living spaces as well as being able to be walked on. Using wood or composite decking requires a waterproofing system AND the deck for traffic.
Solid surface pedestrian coatings are far easier to maintain and less expensive to own. A typical wood or composite deck has an estimated life span of 15-20 years. Vinyl systems will provide a 15-20 year life span. A solid surface decking system made of concrete can be expected to last 25-30+ years.
Solid surface pedestrian traffic coatings don't need yearly maintenance, sanding and staining and sealing. No splinters, no nails popping out to catch bare feet. With a solid surface deck system, you'll need to paint about every 3-5 years. Less maintenance, less cost to own!
Come explore the ways Division 7 Pedestrian Traffic coatings can make your home safer from fire, easier to maintain and help maintain or even increase it's value!
