Residential Vinyl Fence: A Popular Option

Posted in: Fencing

Why is a vinyl fence so popular? The answer is actually quite simple. When it comes to fencing, a residential vinyl fence is long lasting, looks great, easy to take care of, environmentally friendly, and is nearly indestructible.

Maintenance of a Residential Vinyl Fence 

One of the biggest selling points of a residential vinyl fence is the maintenance required. When you choose a vinyl fence there is zero maintenance. The vinyl used to make the fencing materials are UV resistant so they won’t fade or yellow. Vinyl fences don't require paint touch-ups, regular cleaning, or any special treatments. If you wish, you can spray off your fence with a water hose once every once in a while. But other than that, a vinyl fence doesn’t require much of your attention once it’s installed.

Durability of a Residential Vinly Fence 

As if being maintenance free wasn't enough, vinyl fences are also quite tough. Compared to wood, the vinyl is more flexible and five times stronger. What does that mean? A vinyl fence can handle a bunch of rowdy kids or unruly livestock. And, if it does get scratched or nicked, the vinyl is the same color all the way through so any blemishes are basically hidden. This is not the case with most other fencing materials, proving that a residential vinyl fence is the best option for your home. 

Environmental Friendliness of a Residential Vinyl Fence 

Since vinyl fencing materials are so strong and durable, they do not require any paint, stain or chemical additives. A residential vinyl fence doesn’t require any of our timber resources. Also, because this type of fence lasts so long and requires so little maintenance, it doesn’t require many resources at all.

Uses of a Residential Vinyl Fence 

In the last several years the residential vinyl fence industry has grown. Because of the growth, the use for this fence material has expanded, too. Durable vinyl fences are now being used by ranchers, farmers, and homeowners. Almost anyone that needs a fence can choose vinyl and get what they want. Vinyl fencing currently comes in split fail agricultural, privacy, semi-privacy, ranch, wrought iron, picket, and pool fencing.

When it comes to fencing, vinyl fences are a great choice. In terms of overall value, ease of ownership, and durability, they are in a class of their own. And if that’s not good enough, most of today's vinyl fencing comes with a twenty-five year or even a lifetime warranty, so obviously the materials were meant to last.
