Tufdek is a sheet vinyl product that comes in a roll and is used to waterproof outdoor walking surfaces such as decks, balconies, roof-top decks, walkways and patios. Tufdek is used for everything from single home decks to multi-story condominiums and comes in a variety of colours and designs.
Tufdek is adhered to a smooth dry substrate using proprietary Tuff branded adhesives. If more than one vinyl panel is required, then the subsequent panels are overlapped a minimum of 1" and hot-air welded to ensure a continuous waterproof surface. Tufdek is then detailed at the inside and outside edges to complete the installation and make the surface waterproof.
When installed by an Authorized Dealer, Tufdek comes with a 15 year limited product warranty and a 5 year limited workmanship warranty. Learn more about the Tufdek warranty here.
The waterproof warranty on Tufdek is 15 years. The life expectancy is dependent on many factors such as maintenance, sun exposure, foot traffic volumes, chemical contaminants and use or abuse. Often the issues previously mentioned can affect the products appearance before the waterproof integrity of the Tufdek is impacted.
You can use a plastic snow shovel to remove snow but always ensure our shovel has no sharp edges before using it on your Tufdek surface.
