Reasons Why You Should Consider Using PVC for Your Jetty Decking Construction

A jetty is a maritime or waterside structure that can be used to dock or moor boats, deflect the current along a coast line, defend/protect a harbour, et cetera, et cetera. Jetties can be constructed using a range of materials, depending on the intended functions of a specific structure as well as the specific marine conditions it will be exposed to while being used. One of the newest marine decking construction materials available today is PVC decking. This decking product has gained a lot of popularity in the marine construction world because of the many important perks that it brings to the table.

Let's discuss some of the notable benefits of PVC decking material that makes it ideal for jetty decking. 

No moisture/water damage

One of the key things that has to be taken into consideration when choosing a construction material for jetty decking is the material's resistance to moisture/water-induced damage. When left unprotected, wood used in maritime environments absorbs water and decays, whereas the surface of substrate/bare metal corrodes when it comes in contact with water. Therefore, manufacturers of wood or metal decking materials for jetties have to give their products protective coatings or finishing, so as to prevent shortened lifespans. What is more, a refinishing job will have to be performed due to deterioration of the initial finishing, over time. 

With PVC decking, moisture/water-induced degradation is never a problem. This is because the plastic material is unaffected by moisture and/or water and will therefore hold up well against the maritime conditions that jetties are subjected to throughout their lifespans.

No aesthetic issues

Moisture and/or water do not just cause structural damage to unprotected wood and metal, they also result in cosmetic issues. Neither structural wood that has decayed nor steel that is stained by corrosion looks good, thus resulting in the need for cosmetic repairs once structural repairs have been carried out. PVC used for jetty decking applications will retain their original look (colour and finish) for its entire lifespan. In places where UV light exposure is a problem, UV light inhibitors can be added to the plastics to prevent premature fading of the material. This means you will not need to perform any repainting or refinishing work, leading to low maintenance costs over the lifespan of the product. 

When you're shopping around for PVC decking products for your jetty construction, it is important to note that not all products are made the same. Look for marine-grade PVC that is specially manufactured to suit the requirements of your jetty decking construction project.
