Duradek can only be installed once, there is no re-coating but it does have built-in UV resistance and mold & mildew inhibitors to help extend the life of your vinyl.
Can you use a pressure washer when washing the deck?

Yes you can but ensure that it is no more than 1500 psi (max) and you are holding the nozzle a minimum of 12” from the deck surface. Be sure to avoid seams, railing attachments, caulking, and any house trims.

How do you deal with snow and ice on the deck

To remove snow load, shovel the deck with a plastic edged snow shovel. Try to shovel with the seams vs against to prevent from catching on them. When it comes to ice, you can use kitty litter or ice melt. We do not recommend the use of ice chippers as they may damage the vinyl. When using these products, ensure that you sweep off any excess material once the ice is gone and that the deck receives a thorough wash in the spring. Washing the deck early in the spring will prevent the sun from baking on any of the residues that may have been left behind by the products used.
