Fences come in a variety of materials and finishes including wood, iron, vinyl, aluminum, and chain link. Each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Vinyl fences have become popular in recent times due to their versatility and affordability. Cornerstone Fence and Ornamental Gate of Connecticut installs vinyl fences in different colors and textures. They need very little maintenance and do not have to be painted or protected from termites and rot and seem to be almost worry free. Now vinyl fences come with warranties for many years and after they outlive their utility, they can be recycled putting to rest all fears of impending and future ecological danger. They are the ideal choice for homeowners who do not have much time or interest in caring for their fence periodically.
Vinyl is nearly five times as strong as wood and thus it takes much more to bring down a vinyl fence than a wooden one. The flexibility of vinyl makes it a good choice in places that witness extreme weather conditions such as strong winds and rain. Wood fences are more likely to break and collapse in such weather. Vinyl fences are also preferred in seaside locations which see a significant amount of salt water exposure. They are also suitable for fencing in animals like horses as the animals can neither chew through it nor hurt themselves if they attempt to run through it.
The maintenance required in vinyl fences is next to nothing. Just some general cleaning with soap and water is sufficient to keep your vinyl fence clean and sparkling. Since it does not change color or lose its color, there is no need to repaint it often. You do not have to apply any primer on it or protect it from rust. There is also no danger of rotting or termite attacks when you have vinyl fencing
Vinyl fencing is non-toxic because it is not treated with harmful or hazardous chemicals. Since it is recycled, there is no wastage involved. Vinyl consists of 51 percent of chlorine which is derived from salt, and 49 percent is made from hydrocarbons that are derived from natural gas.
The cost of installing a vinyl fence is much cheaper than that of a wood or iron fence (as already touched upon). Also, since there is no maintenance required, you will also save the money you might have to spend on maintaining a wood or iron fence at least a couple of times in a year. This includes savings on the repainting costs as well as costs of primer or any other treatments that might have to be done to keep the fence safe from termites and rot.
