Trying to determine if a vinyl or wood pavilion is the best fit for your application? Read on for some of the reasons you might opt for a vinyl pavilion over wood.
Since vinyl is an impervious surface free of voids it naturally repels dirt and dust making vinyl a low-maintenance product requiring little or no maintenance on a regular basis. This is very attractive to individuals with a busy lifestyle. Any dirt that accumulates on the surface can easily be wiped or washed away.
Durability and vinyl are synonymous, vinyl stands up well to extreme weather conditions or a high UV index. Its surface is harder than most woods which means it is more scratch-resistant. In the rare event it does get scratched the color is consistent throughout the material so no touch-up is required.
The impervious surface of vinyl keeps water from penetrating it, which means it will not rot while keeping water away from structural timbers it may encase. This makes vinyl attractive to the homeowner looking to build a pavilion in a damp or wet location or climate.
Vinyl is a natural deterrent to insects, bees are not able to drill into it as they will on many wood surfaces.
The crisp, clean look of a vinyl pavilion adds modern elegance to your property in a way that wood cannot.
Vinyl pavilions have a much longer life expectancy than traditional wood pavilions. It is not unreasonable to assume a vinyl pavilion will last a lifetime.
