Cost: Initially, the cost of installing vinyl fencing may seem higher than wood, but the cost savings are realized in the long term. Vinyl fencing does not require major upkeep. In addition, due to its durability and longevity, it will not need to be replaced in a few years. The time and money saved by not having to continually refinish and replace a vinyl fence makes it cost-effective.
Installation: The installation of vinyl fencing is a much simpler process than wood fencing or other alternatives. Simply put, it involves sliding the rails into the posts and securing the posts into the ground.
Maintenance: The amount of maintenance required is a huge contributing factor when choosing fencing. With vinyl fencing, there is little to no maintenance involved. It does not require painting or staining and should not require refinishing. Unlike wood, vinyl fences do not get damaged by termites or dry rot. Additionally, due to their glossy, non-porous surfaces, dirt and other outdoor markings can be easily sprayed off or cleaned with everyday household cleaners. That is, only if a good rain hasn’t already done the job!
Durability: Vinyl fencing is known to last a lifetime. Due to their strength and flexibility, vinyl fences can withstand the harshest of weather, not to mention the bumps and knocks from a backyard occupied by active kids.
Environmentally Friendly: Vinyl fences are 100% recyclable, which makes them the best eco-friendly choice!
