April has come to an end, and now it’s May’s turn to shine! Especially during an unprecedented moment in time, like the one we’re living through with the COVID-19 outbreak, homeowners are anticipating warm and beautiful weather. Homeowners all over Vancouver, BC and the surrounding area will prepare to open their pools this month, which makes this a great time to consider some home upgrade solutions, including rubber surfacing for your decks. Rubber surfacing boasts a variety of benefits that will leave you wondering how you ever lived without it. The following article will explain why you should consider investing in rubber resurfacing for your decks this year.

Cost-Effective

Vinyl or PVC flooring may carry a lower initial cost; however, rubber resurfacing is a long-term investment that will save you a lot of money. Rubber surfacing is designed to withstand different temperatures and elements, making it a durable choice for homeowners. Vinyl or PVC flooring surfaces are not manufactured to remain in a pristine condition for as long as rubber surfacing is. It requires more routine maintenance, which can become costly over the years.

Seamless Composition

Rubber surfacing is a seamless flooring material making it an ideal decking solution for homeowners with little children as it will prevent many trips and falls. Rubber surfacing boasts a higher safety rating than vinyl and PVC flooring; the slip-resistant technology is perfect for pool decks. Furthermore, if slips and falls do occur on the rubber resurfacing, the landing impact will be less abrasive than falling on vinyl, wood, or concrete surfaces. Rubber surfacing is a shock-absorbent material that goes a long way toward ensuring the safety and well-being of your family and guests.

Heat-Resistant

Suffice to say, it gets incredibly hot in the summer. Typically starting in June and lasting until the beginning of September, the sun will beam down hard and emanate heat that will affect your backyard, including your landscaping and walkways. Unlike vinyl or PVC surfaces, rubber resurfacing does an excellent job of preventing heat absorption, which will protect your feet from touching a burning surface. Furthermore, rubber surfacing is a much softer walking surface compared to vinyl and PVC surfaces, so don’t worry about putting on your shoes or sandals to enjoy your backyard deck.

Noise Reduction

Rubber flooring does a good job of absorbing noise, which makes it a great investment for homeowners that want to have guests over and enjoy a good conversation into the nighttime.
