Project – Half Moon Bay Auckland

This home had living quarters below. The owner wanted to modernise the deck with new waterproofing and a re-designed glass handrail. Homes near the seaside can have a higher maintenance level due to the natural elements and this house was no exception, receiving all day sun and sea air. Previously the deck had a liquid membrane and although it was regularly maintained, the owner wanted to take preventative measures.

The pattern and colour chosen was to minimise sun glare. Being north facing, a neutral lighter colour was the best option for heat reduction.

We were after an easy maintenance option and a product that could protect our downstairs living area. When we discovered that Duradek had great warranties and a longer life span than most membranes we had researched, we were sold! It was amazing how much of a difference the new look added to our house. We couldn’t recommend Deckmaster NZ enough.

When making a change to the aesthetics of a house there are many things to consider. A few common questions asked, ‘How long will it take? Can the company do the whole project? Do contractors need to be brought in?’ Although the pattern and colour were important, blending the old design with new design features without having a major overhaul renovation took great consideration. The thought processes to get it right the first time was very important to our client as was minimising contractors entering their house. We were happy to be able to offer the client a one stop supply of services.

  • The colour chosen was Duradek Ultra Okanagan Flint.

Duradek membranes have been in existence for approximately 49 years in Canada. This membrane system has proven to be a very reliable solution for the New Zealand market.

Finding The Right Approved Applicator

Our products are not available for a DIY install. All the products used are part of a system. As an example, our glue cannot be substituted for an everyday adhesive found in a department store – it has been specifically formulated for its intended purpose to partner with the membrane it was designed for.

It is highly recommended when having a new waterproof membrane installed, it is completed by an approved applicator. An approved applicator who has had the required training in the system they are installing. Deckmaster NZ is part of the Waterproofing Membrane Association and we are a Licensed Building Practitioner.
