Affordable: How does OmegaStone deck waterproofing compare to vinyl for final cost?
The end cost for deck waterproofing with OmegaStone is usually very close to the cost of a vinyl replacement deck. To replace vinyl correctly, the house siding needs to be removed and replaced. The new vinyl is then glued up the exterior wall 8 inches and then the siding is put back. Sliding doors need to be removed and replaced/re-installed as well.
OmegaStone can be troweled over the vinyl on the edges of the deck and walls, where the vinyl is underneath the siding. We cut the vinyl about 2 inches from the wall and doors, and then remove the vinyl from that point outward. We coat over the 2 inches of vinyl and up under the existing siding and door frames. The reason we can do this is because the vinyl under the siding and doors hasn’t deteriorated from the sun’s UV rays, traffic, or cleaners, it’s like new.
We have never had a deck leak with our OmegaStone system.
20 Year Deck Waterproofing Warranty
A NewPort Dry Deck lasts because the waterproofing membrane is made from a material called Polyurethane.
Polyurethane – how tough is polyurethane?
Tough enough to be used as tires on mining trucks. Theses polyurethane tires do not need air and they support the weight of a mining truck that holds 350 tons of ore, traveling over sharp broken rocks. Our top coats are durable enough to be used on garage floors and driven on. OmegaStone’s four bonded layers are yours and our peace of mind.
Why not more polyurethane deck companies?
OmegaStones biggest challenge is managing the drying times, the weather and our installers. If we were a vinyl deck company (and we are NOT) we could have a crew show up at most decks and be done in one day. A deck that lasts takes time. Our OmegaStone system takes three or four days because of the drying time that’s needed between each stage.
OmegaStone is seamless
The finished look will have small imperfections because it is done by hand and not a machine. From a certain angle or in a particular light you may see an area that looks a little dull or shiny. We tape all plywood joints and you may be able to tell where the tape is with certain lighting, especially when the deck has no furniture on it. Once the furniture is placed on the deck and it is being used, it becomes unnoticeable to almost everybody.
OmegaStone is a seamless polyurethane roofing material that is almost indestructible, can be cleaned with almost anything and lasts for a lifetime. The finished deck is not aesthetically perfect to everyone. We think they are pretty close to perfect. We do not know of a more durable, waterproof product for decks and we love what we have to offer.
Deck Railings, Patio Covers and Privacy Walls
At NewPort, we like it when our homeowners keep their existing railings. Can’t get any greener than that. But that doesn’t always work. Some railings have lived years past their expiry date. While we give you the best new deck coating available, we also provide you railing, patio cover and privacy wall options. We work directly with the manufacturer to custom build them for your deck. Our prices are competitive.
NOTE – NewPort Dry Deck does not install solariums or deck enclosures.
