Overlooking the stadium at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, you will find an expansive roof top recreation area atop a university housing complex. The expansive recreational roof deck common area was completed with Duradek Heritage Agate with cool roof qualities. Applied with adhesives, the 6 ft widths of vinyl sheets were heat welded for a completely water-tight seal. Duradek is installed only by applicators that are trained in the techniques required to integrate the membrane into the building envelope.
The 10,000 sq. ft. rooftop terrace is a highly used outdoor amenity for The Lofts student housing so shutting down access for maintenance is a troublesome prospect. With Duradek™, maintenance is minimal and requires no recoating so residents do not experience lengthy closures for maintenance.
Overall, it took one week to install the Duradek membrane and to this day, the rooftop deck has not leaked. The facility manager enjoys the peace of mind that comes with a reliable, low maintenance waterproof deck surface.
