The Tufdek Story

Over 3 Decades of Innovation

The Tufdek™ story started over 30 years ago when ownership of a local sundeck renovation company became unsatisfied with the quality and durability of the waterproof vinyl decking products available on the market. Tuff Industries assembled a talented and dedicated team of employees and manufacturing partners to create something special, something that was not only durable but looked great, Tufdek Waterproof Vinyl Decking!

Tufdek vinyl has since become the industry standard for waterproofing with quality outdoor PVC vinyl flooring. Our Tufdek dealers install thousands of Vinyl Deck systems throughout North America on projects for Architects, Engineers, Builders, and Homeowners alike.

The Tufdek story goes beyond the quality of our vinyl decking system and includes the dedication of our Dealer Network. A major key in the success of Tufdek is its exclusive availability through our ever-growing team of professional Dealers and Installers who offer Tufdek to their customers.

Vinyl Decking FAQ’s

What is vinyl decking?

Vinyl decking is made from high-density, durable polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Also known as PVC vinyl, it is a durable waterproofing outdoor flooring product that requires very little maintenance and provides complete waterproof protection for your outdoor space.

How long does vinyl decking last?

When high-density PVC vinyl decking is properly installed and maintained, it can waterproof and protect your deck surface for up to 20 years or more. Most manufacturers also offer limited warranties for up to 15 years. Premium PVC vinyl decking products also now include an aqueous-based hydrophobic polycarbonate finish that offers better UV protection, has more vibrant color retention, and makes the vinyl easier to clean.

Is PVC the same as vinyl?

Polyvinyl chloride or PVC is a type of durable, long-lasting, high-density vinyl used to make waterproof vinyl decking membranes.

How to waterproof under a deck?

One of the best ways to waterproof under a deck is to install waterproof vinyl decking on the deck surface above. Vinyl deck installation should also include PVC laminated metal drip edge flashings which help to drain water away from the structure.

Can you pressure wash vinyl decking?

Yes, it is possible to power wash premium vinyl decking products if the water pressure is less than 1000 PSI. To avoid damaging the vinyl, keep the nozzle at least a foot or more off the vinyl surface. Use caution around all trims, railings, and caulking.

How to clean vinyl decking?

PVC vinyl decking can generally be cleaned by regularly sweeping the deck surface with a broom. This will remove loose dirt and debris that might clog the drains or abrade the membrane surface during washing. Wet the deck surface and allow to soak for five minutes to soften any dried debris. Loosen the dirt from the membrane surface with a stiff bristle brush scrubbing in a circular motion which will help lift any dirt at the bottom of the textured surface. Finally, rinse the area of the membrane being worked with clean water to assess the effectiveness of the cleaning.
