“After looking at several alternative products to conventional carpets for the 800 balconies we are restoring, we installed Coverdeck’s carpet system on one of the balconies,” states Roy Patterson, manager of Woodlake Towers in Falls Church, Virginia.
Six months later, Roy and the building and grounds committee are convinced they made the right choice. The Coverdeck Carpet Tile System has been recommended to all unit owners, and the board will not allow other carpet products to be used on any of the concrete balconies.
Consulting structural engineers, restoration contractors and makers of protective coatings and sealers recommend the Coverdeck Carpet System to be compatible with their products. Why is Coverdeck so well recommended, and why will it work for your balconies and decks? It’s because the system allows water to drain and evaporate freely under the carpet, eliminating the problem of hydrostatic contact and concrete deterioration. This protects and lengthens the life of your subfloor.
Paul Betty, President of Coverdeck Systems, states that Coverdeck’s elevated polypropylene matting system promotes dry surfaces by permitting water to pass through the interlocking modules and drain off concrete decks. Made from flexible high-pressure polypropylene and rubber with incorporated stabilizers, the company states that this composition insures that it will not be affected by heat, cold, ultra-violet rays, impact or chemical actions. Containing no metal parts, it will not corrode or oxidize.
According to the company, a Coverdeck System provides the following product features and advantages:
* 12″ X 12″ Interlocking Squares * Polypropylene/EPDM Blend
* Fungus and Mildew Resistant * Flame Resistant
* Meets DOC FF-1-70 and DOC FF-2-70
* Colors – tan, gray, green, blue * Texture – ribbed or velour
* 5-year Fade Warranty

Coverdeck claims to be a viable alternative to conventional carpet, and what an advantage it is for easy removal for inspections and maintenance of your balconies and decks.
