4 Benefits of Vinyl Railings

Having sturdy and durable railings where you need them is important, especially when it comes to safety. Whether you need to have railings placed on your deck, your porch, a balcony, or somewhere else, vinyl railings from Zephyr Thomas Home Improvement are the best choice. Here are a few benefits of vinyl railings:

1. Vinyl Railings Are Durable

If you’re looking for a durable railing material, vinyl is your best bet. Wooden railings are susceptible to water damage, which can cause rotting. This kind of damage is one of the biggest signs it’s time to replace porch railings.

With vinyl railings, you will enjoy much more durability. Vinyl railings are designed to withstand rain, insect and sun damage, wind, and snow. As long as vinyl railings are installed properly, they can be much stronger than traditional wood railings. Be sure to hire a professional like Zephyr Thomas with experience to ensure a proper installation.

2. They Offer Lots of Versatility

Replacing old railings with new vinyl railings is one of the most popular types of home improvement to invest in. With vinyl railings, you have plenty of choices to fit your home’s style. You can choose between single post, railing styles, or mix the two – whatever will look better!

Versatility is one of the benefits of vinyl railings. There are quite a few styles to choose from, ranging from simple to more ornate looks. In addition to the different styles, Superior Vinyl Railings can be cut to fit any size, and gates come in all sizes.

3. They’re Easier to Maintain

Not considering maintenance is a mistake to avoid when adding a deck or railings to your home. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance material, vinyl is the ideal choice. Wooden railings require much more maintenance since they need to be sealed and stained or painted every few years. They also need to be assessed for any rotting or insect damage.

Vinyl railings don’t need to be painted or stained. Plus, vinyl does not rot or crack which is also one of the benefits of vinyl decks. Since vinyl can’t peel, splinter, or crack, it’s much safer than wood railings.

Plus, vinyl railings don’t need much maintenance beyond basic cleaning which typically only requires soap and water. However, if you have a heavier buildup of dirt, mildew, or even algae, a standard pressure washer can easily clean up your railings and get them back to looking brand new. Similar to cleaning vinyl siding, keep any pressure washer or hose at or below medium spray.

It covers any manufacturing defect one could imagine: the warranty states that if the railing shows any sign of splitting, cracking, surface peeling, changing to a color other than the original color, rot, termite attack, and/or corrosion, and the damage is determined to be a result of improper manufacturing, the company will replace or refund the homeowner the cost of the materials.
