Discover the Duradek Difference – Supervisory Training & Support

Supervisory Training

As many in the industry already know, Duradek requires all contractors who wish to install Duradek to undergo installation training prior to being able to purchase and install Duradek. Once trained, a contractor becomes part of our network of Authorized Duradek Dealers. Our goal in requiring this training is to ensure that our time-tested and proven installation techniques are passed along to the installers which translates into quality workmanship and the added success that Duradek has had since 1974.

What some may not know is that in addition to installation training we now also offer Supervisory Training to GMs, Superintendents and Project Managers who will oversee the installation of Duradek on up-and-coming building projects. This is just another step we take here at Duradek MidAtlantic to ensure a successful Duradek installation, from start to finish.

There are many benefits of having trained Supervisors in addition to trained installers. Here

Improperly detailed railing penetrations are the leading cause of leaks on Duradek projects. These leaks are almost always due to the railing system being installed by a contractor who is not familiar with the proper materials or techniques needed to prevent water intrusion at the railing attachment point. Not only will leaks like this cause significant water damage, they are also not covered by Duradek’s material warranty.
