Cover Your Rental with Vinyl Deck Surfaces
Rental housing can be a boon for anyone looking for an extra income source, or it can be a financial drain. The key to ensuring that your rental home, condo, or other residence is financially viable is to find a balance between quality and affordable improvements that will keep your rental in tip-top condition. So what do we suggest when it comes to decks, patios, or pool surrounds? Vinyl deck surfaces, of course.
Vinyl Deck Surfaces: Low/No Maintenance
While you could slap a coat of stain or paint on your rental deck and call it a day; in the long run this isn’t a good plan as it means you’ll have to continue this upkeep year after year. However, if you choose to install a vinyl deck surface all you’ll need to do is sweep off the deck in the spring and fall (which your tenant can likely manage).
Vinyl Deck Surfaces: Hard Wearing
Installing long-lasting materials can go a long way towards cutting down on annual expenses to make your rental property more profitable. A vinyl membrane, once installed, can last 10, 20 years or more. That means at least one decade (probably more) where you don’t have to worry about your vinyl deck.
Vinyl Deck Surfaces: Waterproof Protection
Water and wood don’t go well together, as we know. You can help your rental deck and the home/building by installing a vinyl membrane. It will protect not only the surface of the deck/patio, but also keep water away from the underlying structure and the building.
Vinyl Deck Surfaces: Perfect for Pool Surrounds
If your rental house, apartment building, or other has a pool you might want to consider a vinyl deck membrane. It will enhance the look of the pool and cover up any unsightly broken or cracked concrete.
Vinyl Deck Surfaces: Great for Selling
Sprucing up a rental before selling can help you get a better return on your investment, as well as helping the property to sell more quickly. Covering decks and patios with a vinyl membrane is a quick, simple way to give the place a facelift, without an extensive investment (time or money).
Having a professional installation is important to ensure that the vinyl decking is correctly applied to the surface. Additionally, the contractor can ensure that your deck is safe for future renters.
