Product: PERMA-DECKTM
Client: Ettingers Funeral Home

Ettingers Funeral Home in Shubenacadie encountered a problem which many people with concrete walkways or driveways do. Their concrete walkway had deteriorated, spalled and discoloured. To try to cover the problem, they laid astroturf over the concrete. This 'solution' caused even more problems. The astroturf retained water, allowing mold and mildew to form, and caused more damage to the underlying concrete. It was also extremely difficult to clean and detracted from the overall appearance of the building.

When Ettingers phoned their local PERMA-DRY dealer, Leon Isenor in Truro, NS, he suggested PERMADECK, a cementitious product which can be sprayed or trowled onto almost any surface. PERMA-DECK is a versatile product which can be applied in a variety of patterns and seemingly endless colours. The application cost is based on the complexity of the pattern and the colours chosen.

Unlike bricks which heave and settle, PERMA-DECK provides you the strength and wearability of concrete at a fraction of the cost.

The impact of the repairs to the funeral home was dramatic. The new walk way's subtle elegance greatly enhanced the appearance of the building. "PERMA-DECK is a versatile product which can be applied in a variety of patterns and seemingly endless colours - on almost any surface!"
