Vinyl Decks

Hey there, Calgary homeowners! It’s your go-to guru for all things deck-related, coming to you from the heart of Project Landscape. Today, we’re slicing through the noise to bring you the lowdown on vinyl decking – the good, the bad, and the oh-so-walkable. Whether you’re dreaming of a deck makeover or standing on the threshold of decision-making, you’ve likely stumbled upon vinyl decking in your search. As with any decking material, vinyl comes with its own set of pros and cons. So, let’s dive in, shall we?

The Bright Side of Vinyl Decking

1. Low Maintenance, High Reward Vinyl decking asks so little of you. A simple wash with soap and water, and it’s back to looking brand new. No sanding, staining, or sealing required. It’s the perfect companion for those who’d rather spend their weekends chilling than checking off chores
2. Durability that Dazzles Vinyl decks are like the superheroes of the decking world. They resist fading, staining, and scratching. They laugh in the face of mold, mildew, and insects. Plus, they don’t splinter, which means you can prance around barefoot without care. 3. A Lifetime of Looks Vinyl decking comes in a variety of colors and textures, mimicking the look of real wood or stone. It’s like having your cake and eating it, too – all the beauty with none of the upkeep. 4. A Friend to Feet and Fidos Vinyl decking stays cooler in the scorching sun, making it a kind choice for your feet and your furry friends. Plus, its slip-resistant surface keeps poolside parties and rainy day gatherings safe from slip-ups.

The Flip Side of Vinyl Decking

1. Upfront Investment Good things come with a price tag, and vinyl decking is no exception. The initial cost is higher than some other decking materials. But think of it as an investment in your home and your sanity. No maintenance costs mean more money in your pocket over time. 2. Not So Nature’s Child Vinyl decking isn’t the most eco-friendly option on the market. It’s not biodegradable and recycling options are limited. For those who prioritize green living, this might be a deal-breaker. 3. Heat Hazards While vinyl decking is cooler than some alternatives, it can still get toasty under the summer sun. Darker colors absorb more heat, so choosing a lighter shade is wise if your deck basks in sunlight. 4. The Look of Love (Or Not) While modern vinyl mimics natural materials pretty convincingly, purists might not be sold. There’s an authenticity to wood that’s hard to replicate, and for some, only the real deal will do.
