6 Reasons You Should Choose Vinyl Fencing
These days homeowners have endless options when it comes to decking and fencing, Wood, Bamboo, wire, composite, iron or metal. Decisions on the type of fence you choose could range anywhere from aesthetics to privacy, or to boost your properties value. Whether it be a privacy fence you’re after, or that classic white picket fence for the front yard, consider vinyl as an option, the benefits are astounding!
The maintenance on Vinyl Fencing, much like its decking counterpart, is virtually nonexistent. Vinyl doesn’t require painting or staining, doesn’t rust, and shouldn’t require any refinishing either. It withstands harsh weather like a pro, and if it does get dirty it can be cleaned easily with everyday household cleaners. So if you are a busy homeowner that is looking for a fencing solution that is low maintenance, vinyl is your material!
You heard right, Vinyl decking, fencing, and most all other vinyl materials and items can be easily recycled. In fact, recycling of vinyl has been happening for decades. Because it can be recycled and reused, vinyl is one of the most Eco-friendly options when choosing household materials. It is estimated that in the U.S. Alone some 1 billion pounds of pre and post-consumer vinyl are recycled each year! Not only is it recyclable but it is also non-toxic and isn’t treated with chemicals.
Unlike wood, vinyl doesn’t rot, break, or crack in most cases. In fact, it’s nearly 5 times as strong as wood, and much more flexible. This makes it an excellent choice for Maryland in particular, with our harsh weather and cold winters, the flexibility that vinyl has will make it less susceptible to collapse and break. This is why you’ll find it in many sea-side communities as well, the salt air won’t ruin it over time.
If you’re putting up a fence to protect your pets or livestock, vinyl fencing is a great choice. Horses and other large animals can’t chew through vinyl, and it’s a strong option for dogs who like to dig under as well.
You might be thinking to yourself that Vinyl is more expensive, so why should I choose it? The answer is long term savings, again, vinyl doesn’t require upkeep. It won’t need to be replaced after a few years, the time you save by not having to refinish and repair coupled with it’s long lasting reputation make it the more cost effective option.
