Why IntelliDeck Is The Best Waterproofing Deck Material

Hi, It’s Lindsey from IntelliDeck 

I hope you’re having a great week. Last blog, I gave you an overview of vinyl deck membranes. This time, let’s discuss decking material.

Here's the reality:

  • Pressure treated wood degrades and requires constant upkeep.

  • The WPC decks have multi-step waterproofing options, but they are time consuming and expensive to install.

  • Deck coatings, like Restore and others, already have Class Action suits because they’re not delivering on their promises.


Here's why IntelliDeck is a great option:


  • 1 step waterproofing- protects substructure as well as waterproofs living space underneath.

  • Easy to install- 8 steps, and you’re ready to enjoy the deck.

  • Extremely low maintenance- requires semi-annual cleaning with a brush and lukewarm soapy water, or a pressure washer under 1500 psi.

  • Slip resistant, code compliant and eco-friendly. Meets ADA requirements and LEEDs certified.

  • IntelliDeck is 100% made in the USA by a company that’s been in business since 1896.

  • Cool colors™ technology cools the decking surface by as much as 20% to make it comfortable to walk on, even on hot days.


As always, feel free to call me or send me an email if you have any questions, I’d love to chat with you about it!
