Vinyl Decking

Uncovered decks require a range of processes and permits to comply with city and provincial building codes. Decks can be built with a number of coverings and or materials. Vinyl decking can offer a number of benefits.

Vinyl decking can be made from a range of colours and tread. These deks are low maintenance and can last for upwards of 25 years. Vinyl can be installed as a covering or can be installed as a material in a new decking system.

Vinyl decking can be more aesthetically pleasing and be safer for use in harsh Albertan weather. Mountain View Sun Decks is here for your vinyl deck repair, cleaning and installation needs. Schedule a vinyl decking consultation today.

What Is Vinyl?

Vinyl is a synthetic material formed from polyvinyl chloride or a related polymer. The plastic material is most commonly used in wallpaper, deck coverings and other covering materials. Vinyl was discovered in the late 1920’s. Vinyl began being used in the 1970’s, though the material has become more commonly used in material coverings in more recent decades. Today, a range of vinyl thicknesses, colours, and finishes are available for your decking needs.

Benefits Of Vinyl Decking

Vinyl decking materials are commonly provided in 31.5 mil, 45 mil and 60 mil thicknesses. Each of these vinyl materials will offer specific benefits.

  • Durable & Long Lasting – Vinyl decks can last for over 2 decades and are much more resistant to the natural elements than wood.
  • Efficient Application – Vinyl decking can be quickly installed to individual deck boards or over a full deck surface with a “tongue and groove” technique.
  • Low Maintenance – Vinyl decking is up to 75% more costly than wood but requires little maintenance year after year.
  • Waterproof – Vinyl decking is completely waterproof. This is ideal for preventing material rot during wet and cold Albertan weather.
  • Aesthetics – Vinyl decking can be created with a number of colours and finished to resemble wood and other materials.

Vinyl Deck Stairs

Vinyl deck materials are not solely used on decks but also on stairs. Vinyl application on stairs can make the stairs less slippery and can improve their look. A vinyl staircase build can increase the access to the deck that may have been previously hindered with the initial deck and stair design. Vinyl stair applications also provide the opportunity to install a new staircase railing.

Waterproof Vinyl Decking

Wood decks are inexpensive and can be attractive. Though, a wood deck can become easily rotted, with any style of staining or paint. Alberta has common lows of -20 degrees Celsius and highs of 23 degrees Celsius in respective seasons. These temperatures coupled with 16.5 inches of annual rain and 50.7 inches of annual snow can quickly damage and rot a wooden deck. This damage leads to unsafe areas and mold. Applying a full vinyl covering to your deck protects it from the large water volumes as well as hot and cold temperatures that Albertan winters and summers provide.

  • Hi Steven, Happy Friday!!!! Just wanted to say hi and that I love my deck. The guys finished up Wednesday evening. I haven't had time to really enjoy my deck yet but hopefully this weekend I will. Thanks again for all your patience and help with getting this completed and to what I was looking for. I have all of July and August to enjoy my deck now and hopefully September. Have a wonderful weekend. April

  • Rebuilt the deck at the back of the house;because of cost we kept the same footprint as the previous deck;workmanship was excellent, the deck flooring is exceptional, almost like the extension of the inside flooring, loved the enclosed stairwell and the changes to the railing; very clean exit after job was complete, no delays in getting the work done;very pleased; in hindsight we should have spent the extra money for a tiered deck that we had in mind.

  • Our experience with the company and its employees, for the most part, has been excellent. The deck was enlarged and updated with dura deck vinyl covering, aluminium powder coated rails and lightly tinted glass over ten years ago, and it still looks great. Additional upgraded railings, opaque glass and a gate were later added. From the initial meeting with the sales representative to the completion of the project, the costs were on budget and on time. The quality of workmanship performed and professionalism of their employees can be considered first rate. The best part of having a Mountain View Sun Deck is not having to do any maintenance, just sit back and enjoy.

  • We had our old deck replaced. Complete removal and new installation. The work was performed during the winter and completed on time and budget to our complete satisfaction.

  • They came and put down my deck in record time. Looks beautiful. It was a difficult job because of a previous contractor had failed. They turned things around and left us very happy.

  • I hired Ewald and his team to replace a old wrought iron circular staircase off my desk with a traditional set of stairs in all aluminum. They were excellent to work with and I'd do business with them again anytime. Very professional, humble, creative, extremely detail orientated and excellent customer service from everyone. Price was fair and nothing negative to suggest about the product or service. Highly recommended!

  • Great staff, great owner, great service....could not be happier with my custom deck they built for me in 2015 and the issues they caught and fixed during the build. A great company and team....I would highly recommend. No corners cut....just quality product and service. Rod C.

  • Mountain View Sundecks installed an exterior staircase from out upper deck to the ground on our house. We were very pleased with this install. They were very responsive, met our schedule and came in at the price they quoted. I highly recommend them.
