Thinking of Building a Deck? This Durable, Low Maintenance Material May be Right for You!
When you build a deck, you want it to last through many years of barbecues, play dates, and family dinners. You don’t want to miss out on all that summer has to offer because of deck maintenance or repairs. That’s why, in recent years, homeowners have begun to recognize the major benefits of PVC decks. These decks are durable, low maintenance, and they look great!
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is a strong, synthetic plastic polymer that is not only lighter and more flexible than wood, but stronger too! Unlike wood, PVC is not fibrous, making it ideal to withstand high-traffic usage with little-to-no maintenance; it’s the perfect material for a deck that will see a lot of action. This popular material also boasts some safety features: it’s slip resistant, splinter-free, and always cool to the touch, helping you avoid pesky summertime burns. PVC comes in a variety of beautiful, long-lasting colours that are sure to match any theme that you envision for your yard.
In Ottawa, you need a deck that’s built to withstand the scorching summers and harsh winters for decades to come. PVC decks are designed to last, and to resist many of the elements that can damage decks made from other materials, including corrosion, peeling, rotting, warping, cracking, and yellowing. Mold and mildew won’t be an issue since the solid planks will not swell up or absorb water, and the boards couldn’t be easier to clean; a simple spray of the hose will remove most dirt and grime, meaning you’ll spend your summers relaxing in the sun rather than cleaning and maintaining your deck.
The initial cost of PVC decks may be a little bit higher, but over time, the investment will be well worth it. PVC won’t ever require regular staining or painting, saving you time, effort, and money in the long run. When your neighbour is paying hand over fist to replace his deck in a few years, you’ll be happy that you chose PVC!
