Pedestrian decks are surfaces that are subjected to foot traffic. That includes walkways, balconies, sundecks and an assortment of other structures that are exposed to rain and snow.
Waterproofing these surfaces — applying a protective coating to make them water resistant — will not only safeguard their appearance, but keep them structurally sound and help prevent expensive repair bills down the road.
For how long? That depends on the material used, the amount of foot traffic and the climate.
Urethane deck coating systems are known for their heavy-duty wear resistance. Urethane and acrylic systems create seamless, flexible and easy-to-clean membranes that withstand the impact of constant foot traffic.
Other benefits include:
- Resists More Than Water: Watertight coatings can also help protect surfaces from UV exposure, extreme weather, pollution and dirt. Some systems meet fire resistance ratings.
- Many Colors: GACO Western manufactures products in a variety of colors and textures, which can help create and protect special designs, including corporate logos.
- Elastic: Elastomeric products can stretch as the coated surface warms and cools through the day and the through the seasons.
