A deck adds aesthetic and functional value to any home, so it’s a worthy investment. When planning the construction with deck builders, you’ll need to decide on a material. Vinyl, in particular, is a top choice that offers these benefits.
4 Benefits of Vinyl Decks
Vinyl is resistant to water damage, including rot, warping, and mold or mildew. Even insects find it unappetizing, so you don't have to worry about pests. It's also tough enough to withstand frequent foot traffic and heavy furniture or equipment without breaking, scratching, or cracking. Unlike wood, it won’t splinter. With proper care, it can last for 30 years.
2. Easy Maintenance
Vinyl still requires some upkeep, though it's less demanding than wood maintenance, which involves sanding and staining every few years. You only need to sweep a vinyl deck once a week and wash it every three months.
3. Convenient Installation
Deck builders can install vinyl quicker than wood, saving time. If you already have a wood deck, the builders can simply cover it in vinyl. It's a quick and easy way to fix worn or decaying wood while renewing your deck and protecting it from further damage.
Perhaps you like the appearance of wood but not the time investment of construction and maintenance. Vinyl can be fashioned to look like wood. It's also available in a wide variety of colors and can be molded into any shape for the planks and railings to suit your home's design scheme. You can even opt for a textured, nonslip surface.
