If you’re looking for a fence that’s high quality but low maintenance, you may want to consider a vinyl fence. Vinyl is a type of plastic that is the second most manufactured and sold plastic in the world, and for a good reason. It’s incredibly durable and low maintenance and is a very popular material for fences.
While wooden fences are common and look great, they do come with some upkeep issues. Wooden fences can rot, shrink, and decompose. Other types of fences, like iron fences, can rust and look old. Repairs and replacement of these kinds of fences can be costly and time-consuming. Vinyl, however, is scratch-resistant, UV-protected, and doesn’t need to be painted. Many building experts say vinyl has five times the strength of wood and four times the flexibility. Another great thing about vinyl is it’s easy to keep clean. If your vinyl fence gets dirty, simply hose it down or allow a rainstorm to clean it off. Vinyl is also nontoxic and 100% recyclable.
Vinyl is an excellent long-term investment but may cost a little more than other types of fences up front. However, many customers are happy to pay for it because they won’t need to worry about repairing or replacing it for many years. Vinyl fences are known to last a long time and continue to look brand new.
Vinyl fences have been popular on commercial properties for decades, but now, more and more Cleveland homeowners are turning to vinyl for their residential fence needs.
