Vinyl (PVC) fencing has become a popular alternative to traditional wood picket fencing and aluminum. Vinyl possesses a variety of unusual properties that set it apart from most traditional fencing solutions. It’s good to examine these properties in detail before determining whether or not vinyl is the right solution for your needs. Here are a few of the most widely accepted advantages of installing a vinyl fence on your property.
Vinyl fence requires much less maintenance compared to other fence materials:
A vinyl fence will not split, rot, warp or blister like a traditional wood fence. It will also not rust, corrode, chip, or peel like an aluminum fence. A vinyl fence can easily be cleaned using basic household cleaning materials like bleach or mildew remover.
It is a safer choice for consumers with families and pet owners because it is non-toxic (in its finished state).
Wood fencing is often treated with chemicals to safeguard the fence from weathering (pressure-treated, southern yellow pine is often treated with chemicals).
A vinyl fence will maintain it’s look over time and doesn’t require painting:
Vinyl is typically manufactured with the same color throughout the entire depth of the profile so it doesn’t need to be refinished. Depending on the level of care you give it, vinyl fencing should last between 20 and 30 years with regular maintenance.
The materials used in vinyl fencing are environmentally friendly as it is completely recyclable:
It is also seen as being an eco-friendly alternative due to the number of trees harvested for wood fencing every year. ***Keep in mind though that the manufacturing of PVC can result in the release of toxins including dioxins and it’s not biodegradable (so we should take the “environmentally friendly” advantage with a grain of salt)
