Project – Red Beach

An expansive wrap around deck area with extensive detailing took place on this project. In this case, the ranch-sliders were removed to install the membrane over the base plates. The handrail was wooden and face fixed.  

As home owners, we decided we wanted to stick with the same handrail. Being face fixed enabled us to consider down the track, if we would prefer to stick with the same look or replace the wooden look with a glass handrail. It gave us the perfect option for adaption if required.

Red Beach

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 Supreme Chip Sonoma.


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.
