Pros and cons of PVC panels and wooden panels

Many homeowners choose wood siding because it is familiar, easy to obtain, and inexpensive. At the same time, some common problems with wooden wall panels. Such as debris, mold, and relatively high maintenance costs, will cause people a lot of trouble. In comparison, PVC wall panels require almost no maintenance. At the same time, with the advancement of technology. The appearance of PVC wall panels has become richer and more beautiful.

When evaluating PVC wall panels and wooden wall panels, the following key issues need to be considered:


Due to technical reasons, the early composite materials have a strong sense of plastic and few colors to choose from. With the continuous development of PVC material technology. It is already possible to make wall panels with different natural wood grain and 3D relief patterns. 

Water resistance

One of the key problems of the long-term use of wooden wallboards is water resistance. Which requires regular removal of stains, sealing, or painting, otherwise, the wooden wallboards are prone to warping, cracking, and mildew. In contrast, PVC materials have good water resistance, which allows them to be installed in high humidity environments without decay.


In order to prolong the service life of wooden wall panels, homeowners must regularly perform maintenance work such as painting, dyeing, or sealing the wall panels, which requires a lot of time and money costs. Compared with PVC materials, composite wall panels only need to be cleaned or washed with soapy water to keep the panels beautiful.

Insect resistance

Unlike most wooden wall panels, PVC wall panels are not easily damaged by termites and other wood-damaging insects due to the characteristics of the materials used to make them. Termites and other insects cannot reproduce in them.


Generally speaking, the purchase cost of wooden paneling is higher than that of PVC wall paneling. Although good wooden wall panels look more high-end, the subsequent annual maintenance prices are also high, and additional time costs are required. Of course, the price difference also depends on the type of wood selected and the brand of PVC wallboard, and local market conditions.


The color of the wooden wallboard is usually related to the wood grain and the type of wood. The more expensive the wood, the more expensive it is. However, PVC wall panels can be customized in different colors and wood grain surfaces according to customer needs. Which is beneficial to adapt to different design ideas needs of customers.
