Frequently Asked Questions
How soon can the deck be used after the vinyl has been installed?
You can use your deck immediately once the vinyl has been installed.
How do I clean the vinyl?
The best way to clean the vinyl is to use a soft scrub brush with mild soap. (dish or laundry soap) No harsh chemicals, such as bleach or TSP.
What is the life expectancy of 60ml+ vinyl and warranty?
The warranty for the vinyl is 15 years, labour is seven years. The vinyl’s life expectancy can be as long as 15 to 20 years.
Why do we recommend vinyl over fiberglass?
We feel vinyl is a better product because it bends and moves with your deck. Whereas, fiberglass has the possibility of cracking if the deck was to shift, expand or move.
How often should we re-caulk the deck?
An annual inspection of your deck should be completed. Check all areas where sealants have been applied to areas where the decking membrane is in junction with the building, posts, columns, vents and drains. Often the areas where this sealant is applied will expand/contract, shrink or shift causing the sealant to crack, thereby breaking the seal. Warranty for caulking is one year.
What kind of plywood is recommended?
We recommend minimum 5/8” plywood tongue and groove. There cannot be any movement at plywood joins.
How do you fix a tear in vinyl?
We recommend a patch to be done. The vinyl would be cut out to the size of the patch, glued and welded on to the vinyl to ensure a water proof seal.
What happens if I see bubbles after the deck has been installed?
This is normal. If bubbles occur, wait for 10 days, and if the bubbles are still there, call your installation company and have them come out and apply some heat to have the bubbles go down. The bubbles are the gases from the glue expelling.
