Tiledek Under-Tile Waterproofing Membrane
There is nothing like the look of tile or slate on that outdoor deck. But the beauty is soon forgotten when water pours into your home, seemingly through the tile. And then you discover that all the attention on the job was towards the tile with little thought given to proper waterproofing. Rot repair is intrusive and expensive, not to mention the cost of replacing the tile.
This is a common story. There seems to be a lack of understanding within the building community about the proper waterproofing of decks, balconies, and roofdecks that are overlaid with porcelain tile, slate or some of the other natural stone finishes. That’s where Duradek fits into the picture.
Tiledek White Paper Porcelain/Stone Tile On Outdoor Decks
Duradek has been waterproofing roofdecks since 1974 with PVC sheet membranes that are meant to be walked on. We sell our product only one way professionally installed by contractors who have completed a training course and who specialize in flat surface waterproofing. Many of those decks have been covered with tile over the years. So it is not much of a stretch for us to redesign our regular Duradek Ultra membrane to come up with an anti-fracture, roofing membrane capable of having tile applied over top Duradek Ultra Tiledek!
- 60 mil membrane (compared to others at 40 mils)
- Installed only by trained contractors who specialize in roofdeck and balcony waterproofing.
- Duradek has 35 years of roofing/waterproofing experience to draw upon.
Designed for Outdoor Tile Roofing
Duradek Ultra TILEDEK is a waterproof roofing membrane designed for use under exterior tile or slate decks and roofs. Duradek Ultra Tiledek is a very dense PVC membrane that will not compress under intense heat or moisture which makes it a very stable platform for tile.
Virtually identical to Duradek Ultra, TILEDEK is an approved roofing membrane with a fabric laminated to its topside. The tiles can then bonded securely to the fabric-covered membrane with thin set mortar. Duradek Ultra TILEDEK is produced by Duradek, the original waterproofing sheet vinyl that has been solving unique waterproofing problems throughout North America for over 35 years.
With the same roofing approvals, the same proven installation techniques, and the same network of professional and trained applicators, Duradek Ultra TILEDEK is a great solution for your exterior tile/slate
