Published on 2010-01-14. Author : SpecialChem

SEATTLE -- Gaco Western, manufacturer of the most technologically advanced elastomeric coatings and polyurethane spray foam for the construction and waterproofing industries offers builders, contractors and remodelers - GacoDeck® - the professional-grade waterproofing system.

The GacoDeck waterproofing system is the same top-quality elastomeric coating used by professional decking contractors. Due to its easy application, the product is ideal for builders, contractors, remodelers and do-it-yourselfers looking to save time and money but still get the most expert results. GacoDeck's unique acrylic polymer coating can be applied over plywood, concrete, metal, fiberglass and painted surfaces. The product creates a fully-adhered, durable waterproof membrane which expands and contracts with the substrate.

"While GacoDeck is a sophisticated acrylic polymer blend, it's also very user-friendly. It allows builders, contractors and remodelers to apply the product themselves without having to sub out part of the job - something that can really affect a projects bottom line in this economy," said Tom Ferrari, vice president of sales for Gaco Western's Retail Division. "We've been manufacturing high-quality waterproofing systems for more than 50 years, our goal is to continue to provide best-of-class products that make our customer's lives easier."
