Protect Rental Properties with Vinyl Decking

Vinyl Decking Benefits for Rental Properties

There are many Econodek vinyl decking benefits that help make this the ideal waterproofing product for rental properties.

You want your rental to be profitable, which means a balance between spending and saving. If your property has a deck, patio, or roof deck then you may want to install DIY Econodek waterproof vinyl decking. Here’s why:

#1: Provide Waterproof Deck Protection

Protect your property by waterproofing your deck with vinyl decking. After installation, a vinyl decking membrane will not only protect the structure of the deck or patio but will also prevent water from entering the property itself. This is key – not only because of the elements but to also protect your rental property from neglectful occupants who may unknowingly leave a hose running or otherwise have standing water on the deck. With a waterproof deck surface, you can rest assured that your investment is protected for the long term.

#2: Decks and Patios Last Longer

Wood, whether correctly stained or not, will eventually break down from continued exposure to the elements. By covering sundecks, patios, and roof decks with a waterproof (and sunproof) vinyl decking membrane, you’re automatically extending the lifespan of your structure. That makes perfect sense for a rental property, where you want to get the most out of your investment.

#3: Reduce Deck Maintenance

One of the top vinyl decking benefits is time…and time is money, as the saying goes. No one understands that more than a rental property owner, who could spend hundreds of hours (or thousands of dollars) each year maintaining a single property. Every hour you cut in maintenance means less time and less money spent, so why not install a vinyl decking? It means no more sanding or staining, just a quick sweep and then rinse a few times a year and you’re on your way.

#4: Perfect for Multi-Units

Create a dry secondary space under a vinyl deck quickly and easily by installing a vinyl membrane, so a ground-floor tenant can enjoy their patio. Alternatively, the space underneath a deck can be enclosed for storage rather than building a shed. Either way, you get two spaces for the cost of one!

#5: Five: Increase Investment Value

Other vinyl decking benefits include not only minimizing costs and maintenance on your rental, but also expanding the lifespan of vinyl decking and patios. This adds up to a higher valued property. If you’re considering selling in the future, installing vinyl decking can help to move your property more quickly. In the meantime, enjoy waterproof deck protection and less maintenance!
