When it comes to choosing your backyard or property perimeter fence, vinyl might not be the first thing that springs to mind. But vinyl fencing certainly has its advantages — from strength and cost to safety and longevity.
Still not convinced? Here are 6 of the most important, and surprising, vinyl fencing benefits.
Vinyl is more durable than most materials.
Did you know that vinyl fencing is around five times stronger than wood?
While plastic may not be synonymous with strength in other contexts, a vinyl fence is more resistant to damage than more traditional wood options, like wooden picket fences.
As well as this, vinyl fencing is far more resistant to pests, rust, moisture, and splintering. It won’t rot or erode, so you can set it up near a pool or a sprinkler hose without worrying about water damage.
And you can rest assured that with vinyl, your concerns about termites or woodworm will be a thing of the past.
Overall, a vinyl fence is reliable and can last for decades longer than a wood equivalent.
Many vinyl fences come with a lifetime warranty
When you choose a vinyl fence from Blackline HHP, we’ve got you covered — even in worst-case scenarios. When you decide to build a vinyl fence, you won’t have to deal with the hassles of installing wood fence panels. Instead, when you’re setting posts, you’ll just fill the hole with concrete for your fence posts, then assemble the fence panels and top part of your vinyl fence.
All our vinyl fences come with a lifetime warranty. If you do experience any rot, drastic wear, or color fading in your vinyl fencing, you can rest easy knowing your investment is protected.
Vinyl fencing suits a range of aesthetics
Plenty of people opt for wood fencing because of how it looks. One of the significant advantages of vinyl fencing is its variety of aesthetics, as it means you can tailor your backyard to look exactly how you want.
With vinyl, you can mimic the classic wood fence ideal, or even go for something brighter and eye-catching. The best part of all, if you change your mind or alter your house and garden style, vinyl fencing is incredibly easy to paint.
Vinyl fencing is a smarter investment.
True, the initial cost of vinyl fencing tends to be more expensive than wood alternatives. That said, vinyl fencing almost always ends up being the more cost-effective option in the long run.
After all, you won’t need to repaint or stain it regularly, it won’t break or degrade, and it will last longer than a wood fence. With this in mind, vinyl provides excellent value for your hard-earned money.
Vinyl is child and pet-friendly.
Splinters and rough edges on wood fences can be tough on kids and pets who love exploring their backyard. But vinyl fencing benefits both little ones and furry ones alike.
Thanks to its smooth finish and durable nature, vinyl has no sharp corners or splinters, so there are no painful accidents.
Vinyl is non-toxic and recyclable.
Vinyl fencing is completely non-toxic, as no harsh chemicals are used in its production. This is perfect for families with small, curious kids or for those who are looking for a material to fence in animals (especially animals who might decide to take a bite out of it!).
Remarkably, vinyl is also completely recyclable and constructed using natural gas, making it a genuinely environmentally friendly option.
