Frequently Asked Questions
How do I prepare for Vinyl Decking?
How Is It Installed?
Vinyl Membrane is adhered to most smooth substrates using either a contact or a latex adhesive and is overlapped and heat welded at all seams. The vinyl is then mechanically fastened at all perimeters ensuring a total waterproofing system is achieved.
How Long Will It Last?
A Vinyl Membrane Deck surface could last up to 15-25 years depending upon the application, exposure and care of the deck.
Is There A Warranty?
All Vinyl Membrane products are covered by either a 10 or 15 Year Limited Manufacturer's Warranty, depending upon the specific product chosen. Deck-it-Out offers a 1 year Warranty on workmanship and installation.
Is Vinyl Membrane Slip Resistant?
The embossment on the membrane is created to provide better resistance to slippery conditions, however like any other decking product; Vinyl can still be slippery when wet or snow/frost covered. It is the responsibility of the owner to maintain their deck in safe condition.
Is Vinyl Environmentally Green?
The answer is YES. When compared to pressure treated wood, there are no chemicals leaching into the environment and likely triple the life expectancy. PVC’s one-step application and longevity compare favorably to the multiple application and reapplication requirements of liquid-applied systems, saving many trips to the job, which in turn consumes energy. As a waterproof deck, compared to alternatives is the GREENER CHOICE!
How Much Does Vinyl Cost?
