Vinyl Decking

Vinyl decking is another alternative to regular decks made out of solid wood. The material used here, vinyl, has some of its advantages and disadvantages, but is overall good as an alternative material for outdoor decks and other home expansions.

Vinyl decking composite is a lot more resistant to force, meaning it will not expand or contract a great deal. This quality is possible with vinyl decking by using different techniques and methods for fastening. Methods of spacing or leaving tolerances also allows for this quality of vinyl to shine through.

Most vinyl decking materials are made out of polyvinyl chloride material, more commonly known as simply PVC. Polyvinyl chloride material is a very versatile synthetic material that can be found everywhere, used in window frames, drainage pipes, water service pipes, wire and cable insulations, blood storage bags, and other medical devices. The vinyl used in vinyl decking is also the same material for other types of flooring, synthetic leather, and other coated fabrics.
