The picket fences are the classic choice for an American home. As per data, in the 1940s, the white picket fences became synonymous with the American dream. They are simple yet elegant. If you opt for customization, these fences can add curb appeal to your property. Many homeowners want their traditional picket fences to last long. However, the wooden picket fences start fading and turning yellow within a few months. The charm of the classic white picket fence is completely lost as soon as they lose their luster and start getting discolored – which is why replacing the wooden fence with a traditional vinyl fence is a good call. Although vinyl fences started being used in the late 1970s (as per data), they became popular in the 1980s, when people realized that vinyl is a better and more cost-effective solution to a wooden or metal fence.
Why choose a vinyl fence over a wooden one?
Vinyl fences cost more upfront, but they are better than wooden fences. Duramax vinyl fences are more durable and five times stronger than wood. Ideally, the vinyl fence lasts 30 years with minimal upkeep, whereas the wooden fence stays in good condition only for 10 to 15 years, after which you need to replace the fence line. Once installed, a vinyl fence won’t need repainting, replacing, or professional repairs. However, such isn’t the case with the high-maintenance wooden fence. Once you have installed a wooden fence, you should opt for professional maintenance every now and then. On the contrary, vinyl fences are virtually maintenance-free.
In the long run, a vinyl fence is better than a wooden fence. Firstly, you do not have to bear the regular maintenance hassles after installing a wooden fence. Secondly, a vinyl fence is a long-term investment as they are much stronger and more durable than a wooden one. Save costs in the long run by choosing Duramax vinyl fences rather than ordinary wooden ones.
Why choose a vinyl fence rather than metal fencing?
Metal fences might look sturdy and last many years, but vinyl is the best. The metal fence will not last very long unless you spend time and money on its maintenance. A metal fence is extremely sturdy but rusts and chips when exposed to weather elements. Rain, sun, hurricanes, and tornadoes might not uproot a metal fence but can ravage the entire fence line.
On the other hand, vinyl fences are completely weather-resistant. Made with the DuraResin vinyl formulation, the high-quality fences do not rust, warp, crack or break. Over 12 parts of titanium dioxide and extremely potent UV inhibitors are used for manufacturing vinyl fences. The vinyl fences can withstand the scorching rays of the southwest sun and won’t fade or get discolored easily. The vinyl fences might be lightweight, but instead of using brackets and unsightly screws, Duramax Fences have a strong routing and interlocking system. Our fences are flexible but can stand the test of time. The fences have passed a wind test of 105 mph and can easily withstand strong gusts of winds, hurricanes, and tornadoes.
Another great disadvantage of metal fences is that they don’t offer much privacy. The design of metal fences does not hinder visibility, so many prefer to install a vinyl fence rather than a metal one. Again, installing metal fences and their maintenance is expensive, time-consuming, and a very careful process. On the other hand, vinyl fences come in varied styles and designs and can be customized to suit your preferences. Duramax Fences have a DIY installation method offering a hassle-free process to set up the fence line. Therefore, Duramax’s vinyl fences are a better alternative to metal fencing.
What is the cost of a vinyl fence?
The cost of a vinyl fence varies, and it depends upon many factors. The cost of a vinyl fence is affected by design, color, terrain, gate type, and permits. You should also consider the installation costs while purchasing a fence for your property. Although no one can give you a definite figure about the cost of a vinyl fence, Duramax Fence installation is comparatively cheaper than other alternatives. We can proudly claim that installing our DIY fencing will help you save at least 29% on fencing and labor compared to other traditional materials.

Still, looking for a white picket fence that resembles wood?
