Why Choose A PVC Deck For Your Galveston Home?
When building a deck, there a lot of things to consider. “Do you have the materials needed to withstand rough weather?” “Where do you want the deck placed?” “What purpose the deck will serve, etc…?” Maybe you want your deck to be a place to grill, maybe your deck will be the edge of the pool to cannonball into, or maybe just another place to relax. Once you’ve decided what your deck will be used for, you’ll have to decide on materials. These are some materials that you’d might like to choose: wood, composite, aluminum, or PVC.
Here’s why a PVC deck might be the best out of all those options:
- Water Resistant: When you choose a PVC deck, your deck will be water resistant. When it rains, your deck won’t have the slimy feel like having a wood deck would and when it snows, you won’t have any underlying water damage from the resting snow.
- Fire Resistant: Grilling on your deck is a great summer pastime; however, it could pose some difficulties. If the wind blows just right, the flames could reach your railing and spread down to your deck. With wood and composite decks the flames would spread rapidly, but with a PVC deck, your deck is less susceptible from the fires.
- Not-So-Hot Deck: This doesn’t mean your deck doesn’t look nice; when you’re relaxing in the backyard and the kids are swimming or playing, there’s no time for shoes and having a not-so-hot deck would save everyone’s feet. With an aluminum or wood deck the sun may cause the deck to be too hot to walk on barefoot. With a PVC deck, it stays several degrees cooler despite the fact that the sun is beating down on it, allowing everyone to walk barefoot comfortably.
