Vinyl or sheet piling?
Vinyl sheet piling is quickly becoming the most popular product to use for construction of bulkheads and seawalls.
Materials like wood and concrete have been widely used in the past, but the use of these traditional materials is becoming virtually obsolete. With the advent of vinyl sheet piling, homeowners with oceanfront or lakefront property can now rely on the newest manufacturing technology to receive the best product on the market today.
Vinyl is a better value
The real measure of this is not just the comparison of costs for the initial installation; you also need to figure in the costs over the long term. Since vinyl sheet piling lasts much longer than more traditional materials, the cost of repairs and replacement is delayed.
In fact, should you ever decide to sell, your buyer can rest in the assurance that the seawall will last a very long time. That’s an added value to your property.
These are examples of what happens when your seawalls are constructed with materials that are not as durable and will fail significantly sooner than our state-of-the-art solutions.
Vinyl sheet piling provides for an easy installation, particularly compared to wood. Wood is subject to imperfections, warping, and various deformities. This can sometimes cause problems or delays at the time of the installation. Vinyl does not have that problem. Unlike wood, vinyl does not grow in nature; the components of a vinyl seawall are manufactured to some very strict and precise standards. There is virtually no room for error, so you are able to have a consistent product each time. This means an easy installation.
Most materials react negatively to the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun, and it doesn’t take very long for that to start happening. When the time period is stretched out over years, the sun can do some real damage.
Vinyl sheet piling is designed to be resistant to this, so the effects of the sun are not as serious or as quick.
