Installing Vinyl wall panels inside Kennels

After every dog bath, there follows a shakedown with a 360 water splash all over the walls and ceilings. PVC wall panels' water resistance and durability make it easier to focus on the dogs versus worrying about mold or water damage. The panels interlock to create a seamless surface, preventing pets from biting or ripping anything off.


Choose water-resistant wall panels for your kennels

Shop for waterproof PVC panels from Duramax online portal. Save on 40% on material and 50% on labor expenses. The vinyl panels come at factory-direct pricing and are shipped in two weeks. Stop shopping for FRP panels and invest in vinyl wallboard. Pay slightly higher and opt for vinyl panels, which is a one-time investment. FRP panels might initially be quite cheap, but with maintenance, repairing and callbacks, the expenditure increases.

When the county chose Wes to oversee their animal shelter, the first point of business was for him to apply for government aid and grants. The shelter was desperately in need of both the kennels and runs to be remodeled and updated.

When he was filling out his official application for the aid and grants, Wes had to provide a few choices for materials for the construction and remodel. Not really knowing what was and was not available on the market, other than your standard plywood, he found he needed to do a little research.

After googling for a short time, Wes was brought to the website of Duramax. Duramax was a manufacturer of vinyl panels, and from the start, Wes felt that the product would fit all of his needs and criteria for his proposals. The application required a detailed description as to why the company Wes chose would be the best choice. Wes looked over the Duramax website, and in his proposal, hit on all the many benefits there were to choosing Duramax's vinyl panels.

The first advantage was that the panels were constructed of high-quality Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) that offered a smooth, slick finish by its very nature. The panels all interlocked together with seamless results, which allowed for no problems with cracks or crevices.

Both of the aspects, the seamless interlocking, and the smooth surface, allowed for ease of cleaning and sanitation, as the panels could be hosed down with water or a mild detergent when needed. There was also the advantage that as there were no cracks or crevices present, the panels were impervious to moisture, which prevented the buildup of dirt and grime that could often lead to bacteria, viruses, and mold.

Moisture and buildup of dirt and grime were two of the significant factors that were involved in the maintenance of any dog kennel. Wes liked the fact that the vinyl panels would make dealing with these issues all that easier.

The next advantage was the panels were lightweight yet still durable and sturdy. Being ½ inch thick, the panels were engineered for fast and easy installation. Wed would not have to pay an entire construction crew to install the panels, as a couple of people could get the work done in a few short days.

Wes also learned that there would not be any additional construction or prepping of the existing kennels for the installation. Duramax vinyl panels would easily install onto the existing studding and substrate—again allowing Wes to save money and put it in other areas where the finances may be needed.

After filling out the paperwork for his proposal, Wes was convinced that he had made an excellent choice going with Duramax vinyl panels.

When looking to build, or remodel, a space for your company, the logical choice is Duramax vinyl panels. Reliable, trustworthy, and built to last from quality materials, they outperform the competition.


Portland Kennel

  • Type: Dog Kennels
  • Location: Portland, OR
  • Quantity: 488 sq. ft.

When Adrian saw an announcement in the newspaper that his local county dog shelter was going to close, he knew that he had to take action. Having been a life-long animal rights advocate, Adrian knew that there needed to be at least one shelter in the country.

He contacted the individual via the phone number listed in the newspaper article and set about looking into taking over the shelter or even buying it outright altogether. He learned the shelter was closing due to a lack of government-subsidized funds and that the current owners could not burden the cost.

After a few more calls and setting up a viewing of the location, Adrian purchased the shelter and the land it sat on. Over the years, the shelter had fallen into extreme disrepair, again due to the lack of the necessary funding needed. Adrian's next step was to get the shelter back in shape and ready for its new occupants.

When he was younger, Adrian had worked in construction, so he knew a thing or two about code and remodeling. However, he wasn't as up-to-date on what was available on the market that might fit his needs for the kennels.

He went online and instantly hit upon Duramax vinyl panels. Adrian was very intrigued by the Duramax products and what they might offer him. He found that the panels were constructed of durable Polyvinyl Chloride, or PVC, which not only were easy to clean but would hold up to the rough treatment that the occupants were sure to dish out.

The panels, according to Duramax, were constructed so that as quick spraying down would do in most cases. With their smooth surface and interlocking edges, Duramax also created the panels to be impervious to moisture. This feature would ensure that Adrian would not have to worry about any form of bacteria, viruses, or mold developing in the kennels.

Adrian also learned that the vinyl panels were ½ inch thick, which made them somewhat lightweight. This allowed one person to be able to install the panels over the course of a few days or a weekend. He thought he might be able to cut costs significantly by enlisting the aid of some of his buddies and doing the installation himself.

What made the installation even easier was that there was no special prepping or construction needed for installation. The panels would attach to the already existing substrate and studding of the kennel walls. Again, this would allow Adrian to save quite a bit of money on the installation that he could use somewhere else in the shelter.

After looking into their competitors, Adrian felt that Duramax vinyl panels would be the best solution for his needs when it was all said and done. With their resistance to moisture and tough construction, he was sure the dogs would love their new kennels.

We were going go with tile, but I had a bad back and decided to use lighter materials and was very happy with the results
