Fence Contractor: The Benefits of Choosing a Vinyl Fence for Your Home

We have recently discussed several of the reasons why vinyl fencing has become so popular among homeowners. If you are looking to install a new fence on your property, here are a few additional benefits of doing so.

A Long Lifespan

Vinyl fences are extremely durable, which makes them one of the longest-lasting fencing options available. These fences are made for the long-haul, and have been known to last from 20 to 30 years before needing replacement. In fact, manufacturers are so confident in the durability of these fences that many offer ten year warranties on them. This makes vinyl fencing a great investment in your property. While vinyl may have a higher initial start-up cost than other fences, you will likely not have to spend money maintaining, repairing, or replacing this fence in your lifetime.

Vinyl Won’t Fade

Another great thing about vinyl fences is that they have been manufactured not to fade or discolor over time. This means that vinyl fences never have to be repainted or re-stained. These fences will maintain their color and beauty for years to come. Many manufacturers even guarantee their vinyl fences against fading. These factors, which make vinyl fences durable and easy to maintain, are why so many homeowners are choosing vinyl over other fencing options. Once installed, you can rest assured that you have a beautiful, durable, easy to maintain fence protecting your property.

For many homeowners, vinyl fences prove to be a great option due to its durability, the variety of style options available with these fences, and the fact that these fences require little to no maintenance.

Why Should You Choose a Split Rail Fence?

Split rail fencing calls to mind the traditional American west and is a great option for adding a sense of rustic charm to your property. If you're looking for a simple, low-cost way to mark your property line without sacrificing looks, then a split rail fence may be just what you're looking for.

Have a large area in need of fencing? A split rail fence is a cost-effective way to enclose large properties and help corral any large animals you might be raising. The large spaces between the posts and boards in a split rail fence provide a visual marker for the edge of the property line without completely cutting off your view of the scenery around you. These spaces also mean that fewer materials and less labor are needed to install the fence in the first place, usually keeping your costs considerably lower than other fencing options.

Split rail fences can be installed with two or three rails to provide more space or more of a barrier, depending on the look of the home and the needs of the homeowner. If you have smaller children or animals, then a split rail fence may not be ideal, but simple modifications, such as running chicken wire around the interiors of the fence, can be easily made to provide a less open barrier.

While open fences like split rail fences aren't the be-all end-all of fencing choices, they're a great option for anyone with a lot of land to fence or anyone who likes the rustic look of the American west and wants to bring the aesthetic home to enjoy with their family.
