Under Deck Ceiling System Materials: Aluminum Vs. Vinyl
If you’re shopping for a ceiling system for your under deck living space, you may be considering both aluminum and vinyl products. It’s important to understand that the contrasts between the two may mean the difference between having a soggy under deck living space or a dry, comfortable outdoor room that you can enjoy for years to come.
Vinyl – Lightweight and easy to handle, vinyl is commonly used by the average do-it-yourselfer. However, it is also a flimsy material that will likely sag over time. As this sagging occurs, the seams of your under deck ceiling can separate, eventually causing leaks. Also, while vinyl underdeck systems can easily manage rainfall, icy buildup and snow accumulations can bring down a vinyl system. This damage may require costly repair or even replacement of your system.
Aluminum – Though not necessarily simple for DIYers to install, aluminum underdeck systems are highly affordable and can last for years. One of the major benefits of aluminum is that it doesn’t expand or contract nearly as much as vinyl does, and it resists sagging. Additionally, properly installed aluminum underdeck systems can efficiently handle even the heaviest downpours and snowmelts and help keep your under deck living space comfortable and dry.
