Chinook Roofing & Gutters has just become the only “Authorized and Factory Trained” regional installers of Tufdek™.Tufdek™ is the best PVC vinyl deck flooring and waterproof decking system available to both home owners and businesses. The superior product quality and strength are what make Tufdek™ stand out among its competitors. So how does this special decking product and the roofing experts at Chinook relate exactly? The answer is in the shared scientific composition of roofing and decking materials.
The PVC membranes that have been so successful in roofing composition in the past few decades is what sparked the idea to use the same science for Tufdek™. This unique decking material can be described as a single ply PVC system designed to protect and waterproof a variety of outdoor walking surfaces. With an array of surface appearance options, Tufdek™ vinyl decking systems offer an easy way to make sure that your deck will withstand many years of natural wear and tear, and combat damage from outdoor elements.
Tufdek ™ is not deck paint or rubber coating applied during installation of materials, rather, it is a factory manufactured sheet of vinyl membrane flooring, similar to other high end PVC roofing products. Once Tufdek ™ waterproof decking is properly positioned on the deck, it is fully adhered and thermally welded to create a 100% watertight deck; a long lasting, and attractive walking surface.
Scuff Guard™ is a top coating exclusive to Tufdek™, that prevents heavy foot traffic and objects moving across the surface from scuffing and damaging the appearance. This is the only product on the market that allows for extreme protection, especially on the designer decking options.
Aside from the bonus of a longer lasting deck from the added protection of Scuff Guard™, Tufdek™ offers custom features that many competitors do not. Visually, Tufdek™ has created a 4-color print process that transfers visual variation directly onto the deck file’s vinyl surface. This method allows Tufdek™ to bring contemporary designs such as wood plank, concrete, and Stone to outdoor areas.
