When choosing a type of fence for your home, there are many different materials to consider, including wood, aluminum, and, of course, vinyl. While any of those options make for a fine choice, vinyl fencing has a few distinct advantages over wood, especially if you’re looking to cut down on required maintenance.
Here are a few of the advantages of vinyl fencing:
1. Strength and Flexibility- Vinyl fencing has a much higher tensile strength than a wood fence. That means it is much harder to break or destroy, ensuring dangerous elements, such as aggressive dogs, will not be able to break through. Vinyl is also a very flexible material, making it resistant to heavy winds and storms.
2. Little Maintenance- Vinyl fences have no need to be stripped, stained, or sealed yearly to ensure the integrity of the fence. They are resistant to water damage, rot, and rust, which means your vinyl fence will last for years without any extra care. You can even use a power washer on the fence for quick and easy clean up without the added worry of chipping paint.
3. Environmentally Friendly- Unlike wood or metal fences, vinyl fencing is generally made of recycled material and does not contribute to the rapid consumption of natural resources. It is a non-toxic material, so any rain or wear will not pollute the surrounding soil.
4. Inexpensive- The most important advantage of vinyl fencing is that it is extremely cost effective. You can get a beautiful fence that looks as good as any painted fence for a fraction of the cost. Not only that, the maintenance costs are so low on vinyl fencing that the price you pay up-front for installation is likely your last significant expense.
