When it comes to decks the beauty of using vinyl is the fact its waterproof and a finished product all in one. No need to install any over laying decking. Vinyl comes in an array of colours, patterns and textures. It has great strength, stability and slip-resistance. UV screens and stabilizers are added to prolong the life of vinyl materials. These screens are designed to resist the cracking and discoloration of the vinyl. The thicker the vinyl, the greater the resistance to degradation. The method used to install vinyl is to heat weld the vinyl sheets together. The vinyl sheets are overlapped and heat fused.
