Project Howick

Concrete decks need much preparation and extreme care for a smooth surface. Duradek membrane is installed similarly to that of a wooden substrate however the concrete surface preparation is different. No handrail was required with this project as the deck was under 1m in height. The membrane had full termination.

We as clients liked the concrete finish and were looking for a product that had a similar pattern. After going through the colour pattern and selection, we decided on the Pebble Beach pattern.

Home Owner Howick

There were many things to consider during the process. 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 were very important to our client.

  • The colour chosen was Duradek Ultra Legacy Pebble Beach.


Duradek membranes have been in existence for approximately 45 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.
