Why Vinyl is the Best Choice for a Weatherproof Fence
If you live in an area with extreme weather conditions, then you want to make sure you have a fence that can withstand them. Wood fences, while traditionally popular, are not the most durable option and require a great deal of maintenance in order to make them weatherproof. Installing a vinyl fence is a much better option. These fences are already more weatherproof and they require less maintenance in order to keep them looking nice.
Unlike many other materials, vinyl fences are very waterproof. They won’t become damaged by excess amounts of rain or other precipitation. While wood fences are more susceptible to rot if they become wet, water will run right off vinyl fences without causing any damage. Additionally, since vinyl fences are water-resistant, it’s easy to clean them off. All you need is a solution of soap and water and you can easily clean away any grime. There’s no need for intense scrubbing to get them clean.
Heavy winds have the potential to cause serious damage to your fence. The wind can even completely knock down your fence. Vinyl fences, on the other hand, are much more wind resistant. They are built to handle standard wind loads, but they can be customized to handle heavier amounts of wind. At Valley Wide Fence and Deck, you can depend on a strong fence with posts deep in the ground. This makes the fence more durable and able to withstand heavy weather conditions.
Sustain Cold Temperatures
If your area has very cold winters, then you need a vinyl fence. They are designed in order to handle any sudden change in temperature and they can handle extremely low temperatures. When it’s cold, vinyl does become less flexible. However, it’s very unlikely that a vinyl fence will crack or break unless it sustains some sort of serious impact. You can count on your fence to last the winter.
Sustain Hot Temperatures
Vinyl fences handle hot temperatures just as well as they handle cold temperatures. Vinyl will naturally expand during the summer, but the heat will not damage these fences. Additionally, skilled fence installers will allow for some extra space for this summer expansion. Your vinyl fence will also show minimal damage from the sun. Other materials will fade or even warp after extended sun exposure. Vinyl, however, will only show minimal changes. It will look largely the same year after year.
Severe weather can wreak havoc on your fence unless you use the right materials. Vinyl fences are much better at withstanding serious weather conditions than other fence materials. Additionally, vinyl fences are a better choice because they are long-lasting, come in a variety of styles, and are low maintenance. If you’re adding a new fence or replacing your old one, then vinyl is your best choice.
