When it comes to fencing solutions, there’s a myriad of material options that are suitable for both residential and commercial purposes. The different materials available all have their own advantages and disadvantages over others. As a professional fencing company, we believe it is our responsibility to ensure that our clients are able to make an informed decision about their choice of fencing material. That’s why this month’s blog post is all about the advantages of vinyl fencing – one of the most popular materials on the market.
1. Low Maintenance:
Vinyl fencing is well-known for being a low-maintenance material. With a vinyl fence, there is no tricky routine maintenance needed such as re-staining, and cleaning is as easy as a quick power wash when it’s dirty. As an added bonus, vinyl won’t show it’s age as quickly as some other materials. With vinyl fencing, you won’t be routinely repainting or de-rusting the fence around your home or outdoor space. Lower maintenance also typically means fewer repairs, which leads to less time and money spent on your fencing in the long run!
Due to an installation that is typically quicker, as well as material costs that are generally lower, vinyl fencing is one of the most affordable options available – particularly for residential use. Vinyl costs much less to acquire and install than, say, aluminum fencing in particular and does not require maintenance tasks such as re-staining or regular preventative rust treatments that wood and chain-link fencing require respectively. The low cost of vinyl makes it particularly well-suited as a privacy fence for backyards from average to large sizes.
Vinyl fencing is known to have a long lifespan when high quality materials are used. For this reason, many vinyl fence manufacturers offer warranties of varying but substantial lengths. One other benefit that vinyl has over other materials (in relation to lifespan) is that it doesn’t splinter over time like wood. Part of the reason vinyl fences last so long is that they are durable and flexible, often times being stronger than other materials used.
One of the best aspects of vinyl is that it provides a strong level of privacy. Many of the panels utilized with this style of fencing have a face that appears solid once assembled, ensuring your outdoor activities remain private in addition to helping hide any unwanted eye sores from the neighbors.
When it comes to vinyl, there are nearly limitless options to choose from in regards to both panels and posts. Some panels are even designed to mimic the grain styles of wood. Post caps also come in a variety of styles, allowing you to truly get the exact look you’re going for.
