Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 14, 2013
Property owners throughout the Houston area are embracing the low maintenance and clean styling of vinyl. It protects structures from insects, moisture, and even the damaging rays of the Houston sun. Previously available for home siding and even fences, vinyl bulkheads are now making their way into the waterways to control erosion, adjoin landscapes, and even in the construction of docks. Now available from Bayou City Lumber, vinyl bulkheads are an affordable, durable, attractive option for areas that are constantly wet or exposed to water.
Vinyl bulkheads are used in areas that will be placed under a great deal of pressure, so it’s important to choose durable materials that can handle the strain and high demands. The vinyl offered by Bayou City Lumber is under warranty for 50 years, so customers can use it with confidence. Rather than worrying about having to replace wood bulkheads in a few years or struggling to keep rust out of metal materials, people can trust that the vinyl will last for decades. They are UV resistant, and they won’t be harmed by marine worms or other marine life.
Bayou City Lumber also has special options available for their bulkheads, including mono-extruded and co-extruded vinyl products. This allows them to meet the needs of more challenging products while providing consumers with safer options.
The original vinyl sheet piling, ShoreGuard, changed how the industry viewed bulkheads. Previously, seawalls and bulkheads were made of treated wood, steel or concrete. With vinyl, people have a sustainable and attractive option that requires very little maintenance and will last a lifetime. Over the last quarter of a century, people throughout the Houston area have discovered the benefits of vinyl and embraced this as an effective and attractive alternative to metal, wood or concrete bulkheads.
One of the most important features of vinyl bulkheads is that they have a low impact on the environment. The chemicals cannot leach out of them and into the water the way they can with wood, and there are no toxic coatings to worry about. While they are impervious to damage from most marine animals, they are also designed to be safe for use around wildlife and marine animals.
Businesses and commercial areas love vinyl bulkheads because they’re cost-effective, and homeowners are discovering that they’re also easy to work with. They are lighter in weight than other materials, so customers can work with them without using heavy equipment.
When it’s time to add a bulkhead to the landscaping or protect the shoreline from erosion, vinyl bulkheads are an attractive choice. They’re cost-effective, durable and attractive. They’re guaranteed for 50 years, easy to install, and require very little care. Consumers love that they won’t be harmed by the water, regular exposure to sun, or even marine borers. Available from the dedicated team at Bayou City Lumber, it’s the best alternative to wood, concrete, or metal barriers.
