Installing a vinyl fence is a great option for people who want a low-maintenance fence that is still very sturdy and very beautiful.
Benefits of Vinyl Fences:
- You don’t have to paint or stain vinyl fencing.
- Rain won’t make your fence lose its color.
- Vinyl fencing is very low-maintenance and easy to maintain.
- Vinyl fences are very durable and last a long time.
- Vinyl fences come in a variety of colors so you can still get the look you want without paint or stain.
The Downside to Vinyl Fences:
- Even though vinyl is sturdy it is still a form of plastic and that leaves it vulnerable.
- In colder climates vinyl fencing can become brittle due to the weather.
- Options for repairing vinyl fences are few. When damage occurs you have to repair the whole segment of damaged fence rather than being able to touch up individual pieces.
As you can see there are more pros than cons.
