A new fence is an excellent addition to your property, as it can enhance your landscaping while also making your yard safer and more secure for your family. A new fence can boost your curb appeal and even your property value (or lower your insurance costs). There are many options and choices in fencing available. One great material option to consider for your future fencing needs is vinyl. Vinyl fencing is becoming increasingly popular because of its many benefits, even though the up-front costs tend to be higher than with wood. The many great benefits of vinyl fencing make it a better choice than the more traditional wood and metal options.
One of the greatest qualities of vinyl fencing is that it is so low-maintenance. A wood fence will require seasonal upkeep and maintenance every year, from scrubbing or pressure washing to paint or staining. A metal fence will also require periodic maintenance, like priming it against rust. A vinyl fence will not need any maintenance like this. The most it will need is occasional cleaning with soap and water. And this cleaning is as easy as filling a bucket with water and dish soap and grabbing a sponge – no power washer rental for you! Vinyl will also maintain its color and structural integrity season after season, even in direct sunlight and harsh coastal conditions.
Vinyl fencing is also a great option if you have a family. It is strong and sturdy, and it won’t offer any of the dangers of other fencing materials. Wood can splinter and be a danger, especially around young kids. Metal can also pose a hazard, especially if it gets rusty. Vinyl is strong and resilient: it won’t splinter, crack, or split. While this added strength and durability translates to a high upfront cost, it evens out in the long run as you enjoy many worry-free years of little to no maintenance on your beautiful fence.
While vinyl fencing has none of the drawbacks of wood fencing, some people don’t love the look. One of the major reasons why people opt for wood is because they like that traditional look in their landscaping. However, vinyl fencing does have the ability to mimic the look of wood, especially at a distance. Some of the higher end brands of vinyl fencing offer textures and accessories that can simulate the look of it.
