Why Vinyl Fencing?
Vinyl fencing is made from high-grade PVC material. This material is lightweight yet tough and long lasting. Vinyl fencing is so strong and durable, many manufactures provide a lifetime warranty against any defects such as flaking, splitting, or peeling. This fencing never requires painting or staining and is available in a variety of colors. Manufacturers are adding color options constantly. The vinyl is UV-protected and should not lose color or bleach for many years, if ever.
In the last ten years, great strides have been made in vinyl fencing. This has resulted in a multitude of options in both style and size. You will have many options ranging from picket to full privacy panels. Privacy panels are available in a range of sizes but typically range from 6’ to 8’ in height. You will see vinyl fencing in a variety of settings even on farms and ranches as well as in commercial regions.
Some popular vinyl fence styles include ornamental, post and rail, shadow-box privacy, and picket. Each style can be further personalized by choosing from a variety of ornamental caps and accessories. In some cases, you may be able to coordinate your vinyl fence with your existing home décor.
The initial cost of installing a vinyl fence may be greater than that of a wood fence; however, this product will last a lifetime, saving you money long term.
Vinyl Fence Uses
As detailed above, vinyl fencing is very visually appealing; but is also boasts a multitude of uses ranging from defining property lines to penning and corralling large farm animals. While certain styles are mainly used for demarcation or decorative purposes, other styles will provide superior privacy and security.
Picket fencing is a popular option for perimeter fencing. Vinyl fencing is also commonly chosen for providing safety around swimming pools.
Upkeep and Maintenance of Vinyl Fences
As stated, vinyl fencing does not require painting or staining. It is nearly maintenance free providing a wonderful substitute to wood fencing, which requires considerably more maintenance. Vinyl fencing should last a lifetime. Some manufacturers even offer a transferable limited lifetime warranty.
Maintenance of your vinyl fence will include washing it as needed. Depending on the conditions in your area, this may be 1-3 times per year. For larger fences, a power washer will work best to reduce time and effort. Smaller fences may just need a sponge and the hose.
