There are many benefits behind adding a fence to your residential property, from improved curb appeal to added property value. The most significant benefit is the added safety and security it provides to your home and family. Fencing, in general, increases the safety of your yard by keeping children and pets contained in the yard. It also keeps people out of places they aren’t supposed to be (like pool areas) as well as shielding your yard from outside eyes. However, as a material choice, vinyl does all this and more.
A Non-toxic Choice
Vinyl is an entirely non-toxic choice. The manufacturing doesn’t involve the use of harsh chemicals, and it is easy to clean with pure water. Chemically treated materials could pose a hazard to kids or pets as they bake in the sun, and those family members come into contact with the elements. Elements that need cleaning with harsh chemicals also pose the risk of your family coming into contact with those chemicals. Even wood needs to be painted or stained periodically, a process that could release VOCs.
Vinyl fencing also provides fewer mechanisms for accidental injury. There won’t be any fragments from the material to harm little fingers and toes. Vinyl is also sturdy enough to stay standing firm with the addition of more nails or screws over the years. You won’t have to stress about nails or screws poking out and getting rusty. There also are not any sharp metal corners or pieces to worry about, so you can undeniably know that your family is safe.
A Fire-Resistant Material
Vinyl fencing is fire-resistant and self-extinguishing. When tested, vinyl (PVC) was found to be very difficult to light, and when it does light, the flame quickly goes out by itself. This fire resistance can be a great benefit to ease the additional worry of what would happen if there was ever a fire adjacent to your property. You can be sure that vinyl fencing will keep your property safe.
A Wealth Of Options
The other great benefit of vinyl is that it comes in a variety of options. You get all of these great benefits, but you aren’t limited to a specific style like you would be with iron. Vinyl fencing can be used to create a privacy fence that completely blocks your yard from view. You can also use it to create a barrier to people for a specific area (like your pool) without obscuring the sight of your surroundings. Both of these are vital for the safety of the given area, and you can achieve them with vinyl.
