Vinyl Deck Contractor Burnaby
A great alternative to the ever popular cedar deck is a vinyl deck. Vinyl has become a popular material in the construction industry as it is a durable material. Manufacturers have been putting in a lot of effort to make the end products visually appealing as well which makes it a great material for decks. With the precipitation we get in BC, vinyl is a great choice as you can install a waterproof membrane. Many of our clients take advantage of the vertical space on their properties and create a vinyl deck with waterproof storage underneath it. If you keep up with the minimal maintenance work, manufactures also provide a good warranty for vinyl as well. The clean up is fairly easy as a bit of soap and a quick hose is typically all that is required. It is much easier to clean than say a cedar deck which requires regular work.
If a vinyl deck is appealing for your home, there are a couple of things to keep in mind before getting it installed. First is the type of colour you want for your deck. Think about how much sun your deck is going to receive. A brighter colour won't absorb as much heat while a darker colour could get too hot to walk on your deck barefoot. Lighter colours will show dirt and grime more visibly than darker colours which will need to be kept in mind for those that are wanting to clean less. The final thig with colour is the light that will be reflected off the deck. A lighter vinyl will reflect more light back while a darker colour will not reflect as much light.
Vinyl is a great option for your deck as it is moderately priced, lower maintenance, and comes with the added benefit of being waterproof. There is no risk of your vinyl rotting or splintering like wood as it is inorganic. Vinyl is also made to resist mold, mildew, and UV rays which makes it a great choice for our climate. Manufactures have put a lot of efforts into improving the design of vinyl and we bet you would be surprised at the options available to you.
