Owning a home is a significant accomplishment. There are many ways to improve your home and customize it. Investing in a fence is one way to not only make your home safer but add value and visual appeal. Some of the most popular materials for fences include wood and chain link fencing but did you know that vinyl fencing is an excellent option as well? For some people, vinyl fencing is not their first go-to choice. When shopping for vinyl in local hardware stores, sometimes the material looks cheap, turning potential customers off. However, this material is more versatile and durable than people realize. Hiring a contractor with expertise will indeed change your mind about vinyl. Keep reading to learn about the truth behind vinyl fences. Here are the top 4 myths.
1)Vinyl Fencing isn’t Sturdy
Vinyl fencing can last for years, even decades. The only type of vinyl that is flimsy is vinyl that is mass produced or labeled as a big box product. “Big box products” are associated with wholesale stores or large retail chains. We are experts in installing fences and believe in high-quality materials.
2)Vinyl Fencing isn’t Versatile in Style
Unbeknownst to a large number of people, vinyl fencing is not only stylish, but there are thousands of ways to customize your fence with this material. Customization features include different thickness levels and colors. Talk to us about your vision.
3)Vinyl Fencing is Bad for the Environment
Vinyl is a plastic material. Therefore, there is no need to cut down trees in the process of producing vinyl. Producing vinyl does not burn a lot of energy and is extremely durable compared to a lot of other fencing materials. Due to its durability, vinyl aids in the reduction of landfill waste that can happen due to old fencing. Vinyl is also recyclable which is good for the environment as well.
4) Vinyl Takes A Lot Of Maintenance
It doesn’t take much maintenance to take care of your vinyl fence whatsoever. It’s always best to have a one-year inspection and wash your fence at least twice a year.
