Are you still searching for the right wall and ceiling covering? – Read to make informed decision

18 November, 2022

There are various types of wall-covering materials available in the market like plywood, drywall, vinyl panels, FRP panels and mylar. Each have their own advantages and cons. Among all of these, vinyl panels are extremely popular due to the several advantages. It is important to choose panels as per your requirements. Most businesses and homeowners like to install panels to keep dampness away and to enhance the aesthetics. Humidity has both advantages and disadvantages. The effects of excess humidity can be worse if not taken care of. It is very difficult to regulate the humidity levels, instead why not cover the walls and ceiling with a 100% waterproof solution?

PVC panels – gained immense popularity

FRP panels were once a popular solution but have failed miserably because they are not suitable for interiors where there is excess moisture. People spent a lot on wall panels but the result was not impressive. After a lot of research, vinyl panels made its way into the market and have entirely grabbed it. Companies that manufacture vinyl boards constantly research to offer advanced solutions all the time. Vinyl panels are preferred by most businesses and homeowners. PVC sheets are now heavily used to protect commercial building interiors. Once installed, you do not have to deal with issues like cracking, peeling off, cracking or delamination.

Find the right manufacturer – It is your job

There are many companies in the USA that manufacture PVC boards. Do good research to shortlist a few renowned ones and finally choose one among them after reading the website, looking at reviews and testimonials. Duramax is a leading brand that manufactures durable PVC boards in the USA. Our panels have several advantages compared to others. All panels do not have the same quality. It differs based on raw vinyl that is used. We use premium-quality raw vinyl for manufacturing durable and robust boards. The quality of raw vinyl determines the kind of panels you get. So, it is very important that you choose the manufacturing company carefully. FRP wall panels have similar quality but you gradually start discovering the cons after you have installed the panels.

Lightweight vinyl trusscore panels

All vinyl panels are not trusscore panels. Duramax manufactures panels using the truss technology, a modern invention. The vinyl boards are ½ inch thick, have 16 inches fixed width and the length can vary. We manufacture white panels made from vinyl. They do not get discolored or tinted with time. The boards remain as white as it was on the first day. This is very much unlike white panels made from any other material. White FRP panels can become extremely yellowish or dirty. Fiber reinforced plastic is available in multicolor bur they fade out within a short span of time. Vinyl boards are light-reflective so you can save your monthly energy bills. Few LED lights can light up the space. We recommend not installing ceiling lights so that the ceiling is not hampered.

Quick and hassle-free installation

Trusscore PVC panels can be installed within 7 to 8 hours. There is no need to wait for days. Hire a local contractor to install the panels on the walls and ceiling. The boards have tongues and grooves in interlocking fashion that facilitates hassle-free installation. The panels are fixed to the frames or studs and there is no backer needed. There is the necessity of glue and lamination and no separation of plastic and wood. The surface is smooth and rivet free, there are fasteners that are hidden. There is no spending any extra money in purchasing additional materials or extra labor. PVC panel installation is no hassle. FRP panels have a complex installation process. It is expensive as you need to hire more laborers and invest in other materials.

Clean or wash them anytime or occasionally

PVC boards have a smooth surface that does not attract a lot of dirt or impurities. FRP wall panels are just the opposite because they have a rough surface that makes cleaning difficult. Vinyl sheets need no expensive cleaning or daily maintenance. Give the boards an occasional wash on any weekend but there is no harm if you need to wash frequently. This depends on the type of business you have. For instance, the meat packaging wall panels would require more washing than a restaurant wall panel. No matter how many washes you give, the panels would not absorb moisture into it. The panels are not prone to staining and can resist chemical spills but we recommend you not to use bleaches, acids, abrasives, or any other strong agents. Vinyl boards help to keep your commercial interior clean and hygienic.

The $5 installation charge – PVC panels

Do you know that inspite of the low cost of the FRP panels, they can be expensive later? Before you jump into the idea of installing panels, it is important to get a clear idea about the cost. We all want to invest in a solution that will be long-lasting. FRP panels are available in the market for just $70 which is slightly lower than PVC panels that are available at $83.58. Do not be tempted to install FRP panels because the installation and maintenance can cost you high which is almost the same as the cost of the panels. The total you spend is a hefty $141.50 in FRP panels that crack and peel off within a few years. Install trusscore PVC panels at only $5 and it would be a lifetime solution. When we say ‘lifetime’ we mean it. Generally, vinyl sheets can last for 45-50 years. It is a long time which can be considered as a lifetime covering but sometimes these panels can last for a century which is probably more than an average human lifespan.
