Why Vinyl Fencing Beats Wood and Metal

This entry was posted in On .

There are many options available when looking for a way to enclose your garden, yard or pool area. Long before you make it to the plethora of shapes and styles out there, though, you are first encountered with a simpler problem - which building material to choose.

While metal, wood, and vinyl are by far the most common choices, vinyl is the clear winner when it comes to your space and budget.


Wood vs. Vinyl Fencing

While wood fencing tends to cost less than vinyl, it is important to look at all of the costs associated with each option. Wood requires much more maintenance than vinyl fencing; it must be frequently cleaned, treated and painted.

Termites can prove problematic for wooden fence owners (especially those living in heavily wooded areas), as well as environmental factors such as places that are often wet or have frequent severe weather. Areas with severe heat are also bad places for wooden fencing.

Painted fences must be repainted frequently not only to maintain their appearance, but to help keep the wood below the pain protected against the various elements.

Weatherables vinyl fencing, on the other hand, does not require painting, is easy to clean, and needs little maintenance. You can even purchase vinyl fencing that offers the same aesthetic as wood. With vinyl, there is no need to worry about termites and, because it is slightly flexible, vinyl is much more resistant to severe weather conditions. It is more durable and lasts longer than wood fencing, making vinyl fencing worth the cost in the long run.

Metal vs. Vinyl Fencing

Unlike vinyl fencing, metal can be incredibly cost prohibitive, making it difficult to stay within your budget. This holds especially true if it needs replaced, as you will need to replace the entire fence.

Additionally, metal fencing has a strong tendency to rust over time, ruining your landscaping aesthetic. If you live in an area with severe weather or if you have kids who have a tendency to climb on things, it is also important to know that many metal fences will bend and warp when subjected to repeated or heavy weight.

Vinyl fencing is very durable and won’t bend, warp or rust from severe weather. If you ever need to replace your vinyl fencing, you can save money by just replacing the broken section of fence. There are also more design options available with vinyl fencing, allowing you to find the perfect fit for your aesthetic.
