The white, wooden picket fence has always symbolized the American Dream. Well, times change. Today’s white picket fences are no longer made of wood, which has several big disadvantages, including termites, ageing, and maintenance. Nowadays, the American Dream involves a white, vinyl picket fence.
Benefits of Vinyl Fencing over Wood Fencing
- Long Lasting: Vinyl fences, unlike wood, will never rot, rust, or fade.
- Maintenance Free: Vinyl fencing is low maintenance, simply requiring the occasional cleaning with soap and water.
- Cost Effective: While vinyl fencing may initially cost you more than wood or even metal fencing, it will actually save you money in the long run.
- No Termites: Last time I checked, termites do not like vinyl.
- Fire Resistant: This one is pretty self explanatory.
- Resists Mold and Mildew: Unlike wood fences, vinyl fences are resistant to mold and mildew.
Since vinyl fencing was introduced to the United States over 20 years ago, homeowners have flocked to this durable fencing material because it’s easy maintenance and aesthetically appeal.
