When it comes to choosing the right building material for your deck, it’s best to start by examining how you plan to use that deck. As well, look at how exposed your deck is to the elements like the rain and the sun. All of these factors will have a huge impact on how well your deck will perform and survive over its lifetime. For some residents, vinyl decking is the clear choice based upon the variety of questions that they consider. Take a look at our list and see if the answers help you come to a decision.
How Hard Are You on Your Deck?
Vinyl Decking in North Vancouver is excellent at handling rain and sun exposure. With the proper coating they can resist UV damage, insect infestation and mould spore growth. They are easy to clean and come in a variety of options in terms of colour and design. Because they are very lightweight, you won’t have to worry about construction issues and having to add onto your decking structure in order to accommodate the increase in weight of your decking material. Scuffing is not a problem with TufDEk’s Scuff gaurd. If you have large, heavy pieces that you like to move around throughout the summer, then perhaps vinyl decking is the best solution.
Is 66 Mil. Tufdek Vinyl Decking the Best Choice?
If you’ve decided that vinyl decking is the way to go, then you need to be aware of the quality choices on the market. Tufdek Vinyl Decking is currently one of the best materials we use. It features a superior state-of-the-art laminated construction with the added benefits of having a non-wicking weft insertion (for increased tear resistance), UV stabilization (sunscreen for your deck) and anti-bacterial biocides to prevent mould and mildew growth. And if you’re planning on using your deck for barbeques or for a free-standing fire pit, or want to install outdoor heaters, you should also know that Tufdek is burn and flame resistant.
Do I Need to Consider Railings as Well?
For both functionality and for aesthetic quality, you always need to consider the best railing choice to enhance and work with your new deck. For vinyl decking North Vancouver residents tend to prefer aluminum glass railings. This is due to the fact that they desire an unobstructed view of their home’s natural surroundings. But because of the inclemency of the typical West Coast climate, aluminum is the superior choice in terms of resilience and durability. It’s just as strong as steel, but simply won’t rust. A powder-coated aluminum rail will easily outlast the life of your home, meaning that it will continually add beauty and functionality for years to come.
