If, after the winter season, you noticed that your neighbors’ vinyl fences were still in excellent shape, this is no coincidence. Vinyl fencing has been in use since around the late 1970s. However, within the past 20 years or so, its rise in popularity has been exponential. Vinyl’s base ingredient PVC Homopolymer compound combined with Titanium Dioxide pigment ensures that vinyl fences have UV light resistance. It’s also the reason that this fence type has incredible structural integrity. If you’re still not convinced that vinyl fences are valuable, we’re here to address some common concerns that you and others ready for residential fence installation might have.
Do Vinyl Fences Face Discoloration?
No, because high-quality vinyl fencing once again contains titanium Dioxide pigment (TIO2) that prevents ultra ray degradation. We can assure you that your vinyl fence will remain the same beautiful color for at least 20 years.
Will Extremely Hot or Cold Weather Impact Vinyl Fencing?
As with any plastic, vinyl can become less flexible during colder seasons. However, unless a vinyl fence experiences unusual force and mass going against it, it will not break. Vinyl fences can expand and contract during temperature changes, but not severely.
How Easy is Vinyl to Clean?
We won’t say that a vinyl fence will never get dirty, particularly if you own a white picket fence. However, vinyl fences don’t require a lot of maintenance. It merely takes a pressure washer, vinegar, or some mild soap, and your vinyl fence is as good as clean. You want to regularly clean your vinyl fence not only to keep its appearance pristine. While debris can damage a vinyl fence’s structure because it’s non-porous, leaves and other debris can detract from your fence’s beauty.
Are Vinyl Fences Subjated to Rotting?
No, because once again, vinyl fences are non-porous. You can look forward to the surface, not rotting, fading, splintering, or chipping. A vinyl fence’s outer shell protects it from the sun. The inner covering also doesn’t deteriorate because it’s a softer compound that doesn’t crack, chip, or peel.
