Building Green


Committing to Sustainability

At Waterproof Decks Of Oregon, we are committed to sustainability and environmentally responsible practices.

We believe in building green to protect the planet and promote eco-friendly solutions for outdoor spaces. With our Duradek vinyl decking products, we offer a range of green building benefits that contribute to a more sustainable future.

Vinyl Decking: A Sustainable Choice

When it comes to decking materials, vinyl offers several eco-friendly advantages that make it a sustainable choice for your outdoor space:

1. Durable and Long-Lasting: Duradek vinyl decking is designed to withstand the elements and resist wear and tear over time. Its long lifespan means less frequent replacement and reduced demand on natural resources.

2. Low Maintenance: Vinyl decking requires minimal maintenance, eliminating the need for chemical treatments, staining, or painting. This reduces the use of harmful chemicals and conserves resources in the long run.

3. Recyclable: Vinyl decking is recyclable at the end of its life. When the time comes to replace your vinyl deck, it can be recycled, reducing waste in landfills.

4. Energy Efficiency: The production process of Duradek vinyl decking consumes less energy compared to some other decking materials, making it a more energy-efficient option.

5. Waterproofing and Protection: Duradek’s waterproofing capabilities help protect the structure beneath your deck, preventing water damage and extending the life of the building materials.


Green Building Certification and Compliance

Our commitment to green building extends beyond our products to our installation practices. Our team of trained and authorized installers follows sustainable installation methods to minimize waste and ensure efficient use of resources. We also strive to adhere to green building certification standards, such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), where applicable.
