Aside from having No Deck or Roof (which uses NO products, consumes NO energy, and creates NO landfill waste or need to recycle), Duradek is your GREEN choice for Outdoor Waterproof Flooring. When compared to products that perform the SAME function, consider the following: PVC's one-step application and longevity compare favorably to the multiple application and reapplication requirements of liquid-applied systems, saving many trips to the job, which in turn consumes less energy. As a waterproof roof or deck, compared to alternatives, DURADEK IS THE GREENER CHOICE!
