• Dreaming of a White Picket Fence but Can’t Stand the Upkeep? Vinyl Fencing is the Perfect Solution!

    PVC - Vinyl Fences - Solid with Spindles

    Picket fencing has long been a trademark of the American home, but wooden fencing requires upkeep. However, there is an alternative for busy homeowners who don’t want to spend the time maintaining a wooden picket fence. Vinyl fencing is the ideal solution for homeowners who wish to enjoy a traditional white picket fence but don’t want to deal with re-staining, painting, pests, and rot. Vinyl is impervious to moisture, completely unattractive to pests, and resists the effects of sun and weather.

    The No-Maintenance Alternative
    Vinyl fences are popular because they are durable and require almost no maintenance—just an occasional rinse with your garden hose to remove dust and dirt. Because these fences are constructed from a plastic compound, insects will simply ignore them, and unlike wood and other materials, they won’t rot or degrade. Today’s vinyl is infused with compounds that help it resist the effects of ultraviolet radiation, and the color of the material is saturated throughout, so your vinyl fence resists cracking and fading.

    Appearance and Variety
    Vinyl fences can mimic the appearance of wood, so your white picket fence will look just like a traditional wooden fence. Vinyl picket fences are available in a wide variety of styles, from traditional dog-ear wooden fences to decorative, ornamental scallop shapes.

  • Keeping Kids Safe with Pool Fencing

    Barrier fencing is an important aspect of pool safety, and these helpful guidelines can help you understand just what type of fence should be used to protect your pool.

    Fencing should be at least 4 feet high and difficult to climb. The gates should be self-closing and self-latching. If you do use your home as a fourth wall for your pool fencing, install alarms on doors and windows. Aluminum fencing is an excellent choice to use for pool safety fencing, because it is difficult to climb and resists corrosion.

  • How Staining Can Restore and Protect Your Weathered Fence for Years to Come

    Wooden fences are beautiful and timeless, but they do need a little care to maintain their appearance. A wooden fence will last for many years through inclement weather and harsh seasons with the right preventive care. Some species of wood are particularly durable. Cedar fences have excellent natural resistance to rot and pests, and with sealing and staining it will maintain a beautiful and striking appearance for years. Staining a wood fence can restore its appearance even if the fence is greatly aged, protecting it against the effects of time and pests.

    • Having your fence stained by a professional is a multi-step process that actually restores the fence itself. Stripping the paint reveals fresh layers of your wooden fence. Stain and sealant are then used to enhance and protect these layers so your wooden fence looks just like it did the day it was installed. Both stain and sealant work together to protect the fence from insects and rot. They form a durable external layer which keeps moisture and pets out.
       
    • Staining is a great way to bring out the natural color into fence while also adding the shade of your choice. You can darken a light fence or add a tint for a custom touch to your wooden fence.
       
    • Many types of advanced stain include compounds that add ultraviolet protection, which help your wooden fence resist the effects of the sun. Mildew-resistant sealants further extend the longevity of your wooden fence.
