Why has the use of US-made vinyl panels been escalating over the years?

Vinyl Panels

Experts claim that within the next 5 years, businesses will switch from FRP panels to vinyl wallboard. There are different kinds of wall cladding materials available in the market. The problem is that not all wall panels are waterproof and durable. Some wall coverings like FRP mold, rot and peel off within a few months. It’s advisable to choose US-made vinyl panels rather than ordinary FRP. Commercial and industrial applications have Duramax PVC Panels installed to ensure uniform insulation and better water resistivity. Here are a few reasons to install PVC panels inside dairy farms, grow rooms, marinas, fisheries, Laundromats, and other commercial applications.

PVC – The permanent wall cladding material

The vinyl wallboard is an ideal choice if you are looking for a permanent wall panel for wet commercial interiors. Made from 100% virgin PVC material, the vinyl panels are durable, waterproof, and mold-free. The PVC panels can easily last for 45 to 50 years in good condition, even post-installation. The vinyl panels are not vulnerable to callbacks and, with proper maintenance, can last over 100 years. The PVC panels are a lifetime solution and are 7x times recyclable. The vinyl panels have a total lifespan of 140 years, and the inner truss designs ensure exceptional strength and resilience. Duramax PVC Panels are thick with ½ inch width and offer excellent insulation. PVC panels are ideal for refrigerated warehouses, shipping containers, car wash garages, labs, breweries, etc.

On the other hand, FRP panels are not 100% water-resistant. The OSB backers of FRP wall panels absorb moisture, rot, mold, and degrade the wallboard. The FRP panels are vulnerable to repair callbacks. The FRP panels are susceptible to moisture damage and need to get replaced after some time. Since FRP panels are not recyclable, the replacement expenses are huge. The FRP material is thin, and the panels are not resistant to impacts and blows. Due to moisture absorbent properties, the FRP panels mold and are highly vulnerable to bacteria, mildew, and microbial infestation. Choosing US-made vinyl panels is ideal for the long-term.

PVC panel installation – The fastest, most affordable, and long-lasting

The PVC panels arrive in DIY kits, and the installation hardly takes 7 to 8 hours. A single contractor can install the PVC panels without hassles. The lightweight wall material is a one-time purchase. The PVC 4’x8′ material costs $83.58, but it’s a one-time investment. After purchasing the kit, the user-friendly manual will help in the step-by-step installation. The installation contractor will charge only $5 to install the vinyl panels. The installation of the PVC panels is only $88.58 and lasts a lifetime. The PVC panels don’t have backers or any external hardware. The installation is secured with studs and hidden fasteners that ensure durable fittings. The PVC installation is long-lasting and affordable, unlike FRP.

On the other hand, the FRP panel installation is double the material cost. The FRP 4’x8′ material costs only $70, but the installation costs almost $141.50 and takes minimally 2 days. The FRP panels need an OSB backer board that costs $40, adhesives costing $6, panel trimming is $5.50, and labor charges up to $20. The installation itself, excluding the material charges, can reach $70.50. Not to forget, the FRP installation is not a one-time investment. The FRP panels are susceptible to callbacks and need repeated repairing and repainting for the upkeep. Installing Duramax PVC Panels saves 40% on material costs and 50% on labor expenses.
