Gaco Western Offers User-Friendly Deck Products for Homeowners

This summer homeowners and do-it-yourselfers don’t need to tear down an existing deck to achieve a new and improved outdoor living space.

Gaco Western’s GacoDeck and GacoShield are user-friendly, low-maintenance, professional-grade deck products that are easy to apply and provide long-lasting beauty and performance.

GacoDeck – A turnkey for a variety of surfaces

The GacoDeck waterproofing system is the same high-end elastomeric coating used by professional decking contractors. However, due to its easy application, the product is ideal for homeowners and do-it-yourselfers looking to save time and money with the same 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. GacoDeck is offered in six distinct colors: Oyster, Desert, Pewter, Shale, Adobe and Sedona.

“When it comes to home improvement, consumers are looking for the most cost-efficient option now more than ever,” said Tom Ferrari, vice president of sales for Gaco Western’s Retail Division. “Why tear down your old deck when you don’t need to -- GacoDeck and GacoShield are user-friendly resurfacing solutions that save homeowners time and money."
