Are you exploring an alternative to the traditional wooden fence? When you picture a fence, usually a wooden fence comes to mind. However, the wooden fence has several disadvantages that cannot be ignored. Wooden fences rot, degrade, fade and lose their appeal within a few months. The next most popular fencing style is the metal fence. Metal fences are strong and do not rot, but they start rusting and require heavy-duty maintenance, which makes metal fencing an expensive choice. However, if you plan to buy a vinyl fence, you don’t have to deal with rotting, rusting, and other weather elements damaging the fencing. Vinyl fences are low maintenance and do not crack or splinter like wood. The vinyl fences need no chemical treatments, unlike metal ones, as they don’t rust and stand strong for years, looking as fresh as possible. Here are a few reasons you should remodel the old fences with vinyl material rather than opting for the traditional alternatives.
Cost of vinyl fences
The cost of a vinyl fence varies depending on quality, size, height, and the cost of materials. Buying a vinyl fence made from 100% virgin vinyl can be expensive, but it’s a one-time investment and well worth it. On the other hand, wooden fences are initially more cost-effective than vinyl, but the high maintenance costs make them expensive in the long run. However, before you buy a vinyl fence, consider add-ons like post caps, lattice effects, gates, and texturing. Thicker vinyl walls cost more, but these fences are more stable and require minimal maintenance over time. If you want to save money by investing in vinyl fencing, go for Duramax Vinyl Fences with thicker walls made from 100% virgin vinyl and designed to last for 30 years with minimal upkeep. Go for a simpler designed fence rather than choosing a cheap-quality material that affects the durability.
Maintenance and repair
Vinyl fences are very easy to maintain and don’t require painting. The smooth vinyl fence doesn’t scratch easily, and any rubs and cuts go unnoticed. Vinyl fences are non-porous, which means they don’t get dirty easily and can easily be cleaned with a garden hose. Vinyl fences are pet-friendly and safe for kids. A good quality vinyl fence doesn’t break or crack like a wooden fence. Even average vinyl fences break cleanly, while the splinters of a wooden fence can injure pets and kids moving around the fence line. However, Duramax Fences are made from fine-quality vinyl designed to last for years. Our fences have a limited lifetime warranty and don’t require frequent repairs or repainting.
If you have installed a vinyl fence near a sprinkler or pool, there might be chances of mold, mildew, or algae growth over the fences. However, this is not much of a worry as vinyl fences are waterproof and easily cleanable. In addition, vinyl fences do not stain, and washing the fences with a hose is enough to maintain the aesthetics. You can also scrub the vinyl fences with water and dish soap and then rinse the material with a hose to ensure the stains are all gone.
You will get vinyl fences in varied designs and colors. You will get tall privacy fences with slats close to one another to block sight lines. Picket fences with slats spaced out are also very common. Adding accents such as lattice at the top is also a great choice. You can have a scalloped top or a decorative post cap for the fence. Many vinyl fences are designed as ornamental iron fences with narrow, rounded slats and pointed tops. However, before choosing a design, you need to check out the local rules and regulations for residential fencing in your area.
Many vinyl fences come textured to look like other materials. Here we are talking about DuraGrain fences. Duramax offers DuraGrain fences that look like wood but have vinyl’s cell composition. These fences are easy to maintain and can survive weather extremities like vinyl.
