Take a look at vinyl fencing! It’s made of Polyvinyl Chloride and has come a long way since the 80s. Today’s vinyl fences are tough, last long, won’t break the bank, and are super low maintenance.
If you’re in the market for a horse corral, privacy fence, or just want to add some style to your garden, vinyl has plenty of benefits over wood, chain link, or wrought iron fencing.
Durability and Flexibility
For starters, vinyl is crazy durable. It can outlast wood for years and won’t crack, rot, or fall apart due to termites or moisture. Plus, it won’t rust like chain link or wrought iron. When it’s time to get rid of it, you can recycle it, making it eco-friendly.
Living in Hickory, NC, we all know how common storms and high winds are. Luckily, vinyl is flexible and about five times stronger than wood, making it less likely to break during rough weather.
Vinyl fencing also has a ton of design options to choose from. You can go for a wood look or pick from a bunch of different colors that won’t fade or peel. Unlike wood fences, vinyl fences usually don’t have visible posts or rails, so everyone can enjoy the view.
Easy Maintenance and Installation
Maintenance-wise, vinyl is a champ. No sanding, priming, painting, or staining required. Just a quick hose or pressure washer rinse is all it takes to keep it looking great.
Installation is a breeze since vinyl is lighter than wood or wrought iron. Plus, many styles come in panels that lock together, so you won’t have to spend hours nailing or screwing boards.
Vinyl fencing is a pretty sweet deal overall, but it does come with some cons. It costs more upfront than wood fencing, so it might not be the best choice for every budget. Also, since it’s made of plastic, it can warp and get damaged by the hot sun. But with a quality product, this usually isn’t an issue.
