If you’re not sold on vinyl fencing, consider these benefits.

BD_Why-VinylWhen it comes to choosing a type of fence, there is a variety of materials to consider, including wood, iron, chain link, and others of the sort. Vinyl, however, has become one of the leading materials for fencing. It’s low in cost, easy to maintain, and comes in a wide range of colors.

When it comes to choosing a type of fence, consider these vinyl benefits:

  • Low maintenance: Vinyl fence requires little to no maintenance. There is no need for repainting, and termites and other pests will not use the fence as a sanctuary. In most situations, a quick wash with soap and water once every other month will keep your fence looking sharp as ever.
  • Non-toxic and recyclable: Vinyl is a non-toxic material and it is not treated with any chemicals after it is manufactured and it can be recycled once it is no longer needed.
  • Cost-efficient: Compared to iron and wood fencing, vinyl is usually less expensive. This is especially true when you consider you will have no associated maintenance cost of repainting/restoring your vinyl fence due to rust or insect damage.
  • Extreme weather: When it comes to extreme weather, the vinyl fence will perform. High elevation? Extreme cold weather? A hostile climate with dry spells and high temperatures? Humidity? Rainforest like climate? Not a problem. It is also great for coastal areas that wreak havoc on iron and wood. Vinyl will not rust or rot and maintains its integrity. Saltwater exposer will not cause a breakdown in the material or cause rotting.
  • Easy install: Vinyl fences have been designed specifically for ease of installation. You don’t have to be professional to install your fence. Once the posts are set, slide in and secure you horizontal rails, and then secure your vertical pickets in the slots. Easy and simple!
  • Variety of colors: There are only so many colors you can choose when it comes to wood and iron fencing, but when you choose vinyl, you have a plethora of colors to choose from that best fits your style, tastes, and/or house color.
