Vinyl Fencing Offers Exceptional Longevity

Home Improvement,Gardening,Family & Parenting
Vinyl fencing is made from one of the most durable materials available today. Any fence made with this material can potentially last for many years, or even decades, saving you money in maintenance and repair costs. Here is a look at the different types of and uses for vinyl fences, and the many benefits they bring to your home and yard.

What Is Vinyl Fencing?

Vinyl has been around since the 1950s, but it has been popular as a fencing material only since the 1980s. It was originally made from plastic compounds that were much less sturdy and were easily damaged by sun, heat and humidity. This early version was significantly less desirable than today’s options.

Newer forms of vinyl were introduced over the years, ultimately resulting in a material that is highly resistant to weather extremes and the UV rays of the sun. These modern fences are made from PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, though some types are made from polyethylene.

Range of Benefits

The big reason homeowners choose vinyl for their fences is because it lasts so long. Vinyl fences don’t warp, discolor, fade or flake. They are virtually impervious to decay, rot and rust. Unlike metal fencing, vinyl does not peel or dent, and unlike wood, it never splinters. The biggest selling point of a vinyl fence is the fact that it will take years of wear and tear and still look attractive. Upkeep requirements are minimal ? they typically need no more attention than an occasional hose-down.

Fencing Types

The three types of vinyl available for fences are PVC, vinyl-coated wood and high-tensile polymer.

PVC fences are a popular choice because they can mimic the look of wood, without the need for regular painting and maintenance. And unlike wood, PVC does not splinter, making it a safer choice if you have children.

Vinyl-coated wood fences, though made from wood, do not need special treating or painting, and are a less expensive choice than a PVC fence. This option also looks better longer than an untreated wood fence. They last about 20 years with regular upkeep, which includes power washing every few years. The downside is the fence can eventually warp or twist.

High-tensile polymer fences, also called HTP fences, are usually used on farms to pen livestock. They are made from wire covered in plastic sheathing. They look like board fences and are strong enough to hold in large animals. HTP fences are made to be flexible so they can absorb the impact from moving ? even stampeding ? livestock. If animals run into it, it results in fewer injuries than would with fences made from other materials.

Vinyl Fencing Uses

Vinyl is the perfect material for all types of fences around homes. They mark property lines and provide privacy. They ensure safety by keeping pets and children in the yard and strangers safely outside it.

Vinyl fencing is a good choice for landscaping. Since animals like deer and rabbits can’t chew or dig through it, it is an effective choice for protecting crops and vegetable gardens.

It comes in a wide range of styles and colors, making it an effective choice when you want a decorative fence in the yard. Vinyl picket fences set off flower beds and shrubs and can outline the edge of a section of landscaping or along a driveway.

Choose a fence that lasts and stays attractive for decades, needing minimal upkeep and repair. Contact a local contractor in your area to learn more about how vinyl fencing may work for you.
