Vinyl Porch Railings No Maintenance Railings At Lower Cost

The vinyl railing manufacturers have started giving lifetime warranties of the product. The confidence of the manufacturers comes from the fact that the product maintains its look for a long time and a life expectancy of up to 20 years is a norm. The life of redwood and cedar is about 10 to 12 years.

Advantages Of Vinyl Railings

There are many advantages of vinyl railings over wood railings. The advantages can be summarized as below,

1. As stated above, the life of vinyl railings is more than that of wood railing or decking.

2. The maintenance requirement of vinyl railings is minimal. As compared to the wooden railings, they need no waxing or polishing regularly. The only care that you will need is washing with mild detergent to remove dirt dust and mildew that is accumulated over the year.

3. The degradation due to atmospheric conditions is absent. The wood railings deteriorate over years and lose the original look

4. The degradation due sunlight can be catered by selecting UV protected railing material so that the effects of UV rays from sun and damage due to this is avoided. There is also no damage due to rain. The wood on the other hand, can get severely damaged during rains and once the damage starts in wood it, spreads

5. Minor scratches do not show on surface of vinyl railings. If wood is scratched, it shows and need to be waxed or polished once again to that the scratches are covered.

6. It comes in easy to use forms and unlike wood; it does not have to be worked on heavily. This is advantage for the DIY enthusiast.

Economical solution over a time frame Vinyl Railing

The initial cost of vinyl railings may be comparable to the cost of wooden railings. When you consider that the vinyl does not need and sanding, painting, scraping, calking, and replacement, you can see that the vinyl railings can become cost effective solution. If you add the warranties that manufacturers offer for vinyl railings, you get not only a product of lasting vale but also the peace of mind, and that I think is the biggest advantage.
