The Advantages of a Vinyl Fence
Vinyl fencing has become an increasingly popular choice for homeowners in recent years. As a synthetic wood substitute, vinyl fences can last much longer than traditional wood fences and tend to resist decay.
While other types of fences are vulnerable to both hot and cold temperatures and precipitation, vinyl fences can stand up to most environmental conditions without undergoing extra treatment. Because of how vinyl fences are manufactured, they are highly resistant to the elements. In addition, vinyl fencing also offers some degree of flexibility when it is impacted by an object. Since the material is extruded with “impact modifiers,” it lends itself to being flexible and not as rigid as some other types of fence material. There are other flexible or durable options for fencing, like chain link, but since vinyl is resistant to rusting and decay, it stays durable for longer because it does not break down. It is also one of the more attractive flexible and durable fences on the market.
Vinyl is also easy to maintain. When necessary, it can be cleaned with basic household cleaning materials, though it will rarely ever need more than a hose-down. Vinyl fences never need to be treated or repainted due to their synthetic nature. This means that vinyl fences pay for themselves in effort, money, and time saved on maintenance. Vinyl fences are also free from splinters and nails.
If you are looking for a fencing material that looks like wood but is easy to maintain, consider vinyl. Your fence will look brand new long after it is installed. Contact us to learn more about how a vinyl fence could enhance your property.
Uses for Vinyl Fences
Vinyl fencing excels at the job that all fences set out to accomplish: protection. Due to its sturdy and long-lasting nature, vinyl fencing acts as an excellent barrier to intruders trying to get in or little ones trying to get out. Vinyl fences do a fantastic job of keeping your children and pets safe. Vinyl fencing is not easy to climb but is unlikely to hurt anyone who attempts to climb it. Additionally, the posts can be seamless so that no one can use them as climbing sources nor can they see through them. Vinyl fencing is an optimal choice for privacy because it can be made so that it is completely gapless. The fence can also be made as high as you would like.
Many of our customers install vinyl fences to add aesthetic value to their property. Vinyl fences are one of the most beautiful fencing options. Though wooden fences are beautiful, they can actually detract from the beauty of your property once they start to decay. A vinyl fence’s beauty will last years longer than other fence types. The different style and color options ensure that the look of your new fence is cohesive with the style of the rest of your property and home.
How Vinyl Fences are Made
A vinyl fence, also called a synthetic or PVC fence, is a fence made from synthetic or recycled plastics with additives that make it more durable and weather resistant. These plastics can be composites of more than one type and can include vinyl, polypropylene, nylon, or polythene. Stronger pvc fences can also have aluminum reinforcements.
For residential properties, vinyl fences are often made in solid form or with a hollow design and made to look like wood. Fences used for agricultural fences are rarely hollow and include extra reinforcements to make them as strong as possible to ensure that livestock stays within your property. If you would like these extra strength measures for your residential property, let us know!
Vinyl fences come in a wide variety of styles, shapes, sizes, and colors. One may think that vinyl fences are painted, but that is actually not the case. The colors on vinyl fences are integrated through an extrusion process, which is why they do not need to be repainted, and the discoloration resistant method allows us to have a long warranty on our vinyl products.
The posts of synthetic fences are placed into pre-dug holes or are built over pre-installed wood or pipe to ensure that they are extra sturdy. Rails are inserted into perfectly sized grooves in the post.
Vinyl Fence Styles
If you are looking for a fence that provides property delineation, but also serves as a fashion statement for your property, picket-style fences are the right choice for you. Vinyl is an excellent choice for picket fences. Picket fences are extremely popular and come in a variety of styles and colors, though white is the most popular. With vinyl offering a low-maintenance option, it is the right choice for busy homeowners who want the look, but not the upkeep. You can have the most beautiful fence on the block without having to sweat over it yourself. And remember that vinyl fencing material does not deteriorate as much as other fence types, so you’ll have that look longer.
If you want to protect your property from prying eyes and boost your security, a vinyl privacy fence may be the way to go. Vinyl privacy fences are built so that there is practically no space between the boards in the fence and are usually finished with an extra protective board on top in a complementary color.
A privacy fence will not only give you peace of mind, but will also beautify any landscape or property. Our privacy vinyl fences come in many varieties, from plain white vertical boards to tan boards for an attractive alternative that complements many homes’ exteriors. Your vinyl privacy fence can be as tall as you want and can also have extra design details added to the top, such checkered boards. We will work with you to help find the ideal vinyl privacy fence for your property.
Crossbuck estate vinyl fences are a popular, simple, stylish choice for residential properties. Our 4-rail vinyl crossbuck estate fences are also perfect for your farm or ranch fencing needs. Though crossbuck estate vinyl fences do not keep people from peeking into your property, the aesthetically-pleasing cross design can help define your property and the simplicity of the fence makes it easy to cover a long distance. If you think vinyl crossbuck estate fencing might be the perfect fit for your property, contact us.
Another popular choice for large properties — especially farms and ranches — is a vinyl Chesterfield fence. While it is similar to the crossbuck estate vinyl fences, in place of crossed, overlapping boards, the boards in a chesterfield vinyl fence run parallel to each other, and depending on the height and visibility you want for your fence, many boards can be used. This type of fence is cost-efficient, splinter-free, environmentally-friendly, and easy to place around a large property. It is the perfect choice when you want to confine farm animals but maintain an “open range” feel to your property. Some of our homeowner clients also choose Chesterfield fences for the cost-efficiency and unique charm.
