Our Tufdek Installation Process
Installing Tufdek is an easy and cost-effective way to give your home a facelift. Whether you’re looking to update your kitchen or add some style to your outdoor patio, Tufdek is an excellent option. But before you dive into the installation process, it’s important to understand what exactly you should expect.
The Installation Process
The professional installation process for Tufdek decking begins with an assessment of the space. Your installer will measure the area, inspect existing surfaces, and discuss any special requirements or preferences you may have. Once these considerations are taken into account, they will provide you with an estimated installation timeline so that you know when to expect completion of the project.
Once all preparation work has been completed, your installer will begin laying down the deck boards. This usually takes between one and two days depending on the size of your project. They will also take care to ensure that each board is properly sealed against moisture before moving on to the next step in the installation process. The final step is sealing all exposed edges with a waterproof sealant for added protection against wear and tear over time. This step typically takes about one day to complete but can vary depending on how many edges need to be sealed.
What To Expect During Installation?
During the installation process, your installer will take care to ensure that everything is done according to plan with minimal disruption as possible. They will also take extra measures such as using tarps or plastic sheeting around doors or windows if necessary in order protect your home from any dust or debris generated during construction. Your installer should also keep you informed throughout every stage of the project so that you are aware of any progress being made or changes needed along the way.

How well will Tufdek’s surface appearance stand up over time?
Tufdek, like all vinyl decking products, has the design printed onto the surface of the vinyl. Tufdek uses water based inks and a unique proprietary polycarbonate top finish which achieves the following:
- protects from pre-mature fading and discoloration
- reduces issues related to scuffing (product will still scuff from friction)
- reduces marring and abrasions
- reduces plasticizer loss which helps extend the life cycle of the vinyl
- helps make the vinyl easier to clean with less dirt retention
- helps reduce damage from chemical interactions
Scuffing of the printed surface is possible on all vinyl decking if the product is not properly cared for, abused or mistreated. Choosing the right design will go a long way to help offset potential issues.If you are using Tufdek in a high traffic area or have a deck where scuffing of shoes or abrasions from furniture is a concern, we suggest you choose designs with less ink and / or
contrast to minimize these issues. Ask your Authorized dealer which designs are better suited for your application.
Can I install Tufdek myself?
Tufdek is only available through Authorized Tufdek Dealers. In an effort to maintain a high level of installation quality we do not sell Tufdek for DIY installations.

Tufdek has been installed into the harsh winter environments of the NorthWest Territories, the Yukon and Alaska with exceptional results. Tested to various cold crack standards as required for PVC roofing at temperatures of minus 40, Tufdek will stand up to the harshest of cold environments.
