  • Chain Link versus PVC Fencing: Which is best?

    neighborhood gateSo you are now a homeowner. Typically, having a home also means having a yard. What happens if your new yard doesn’t have a fence, or the fence that is currently guarding your yard might not be to your satisfaction? Looks like you have a decision to make about what fencing to have around your yard. There are many choices available to you in the world of fencing. Two of the more commonly seen fences are chain link fences and PVC fences. Which should you choose? Here are some topics to think about when making your decision:

    1. Strength: How strong will my fence be?
    2. Quality: How will the materials of my fence hold up?
    3. Aesthetic Appeal: How will my fence look?

    When it comes to a chain link fence, strength will not be a problem. Chain link fencing can be made with a coating to make it safer to touch and to last longer. Chain link fencing has been a prominent feature in many neighborhoods throughout the years. The coating helps make the fence more pleasing to the eye and enables the fence to coordinate with the color of the homeowner’s house.

    PVC fencing is becoming a more recognized staple in communities. PVC fencing is made from polyvinyl chloride which allows it to be durable and flexible. Due to its material, PVC fencing won’t show every day wear and tear like discoloration, chips, or rust.

    Both fencing is reasonably priced and can easily fit in with any community or neighborhood. PVC fencing could be used for a more private homeowner, while chain link fences could be used for someone who wants to see their neighbor. PVC fencing can be more costly in comparison to chain link fencing, but won’t need regular maintenance like chain link fencing, possibly saving money over a longer period of time.

  • Benefits of PVC Vinyl Fencing

    Vinyl fencing is taking the world by storm because of its clean appearance and long life with minimal maintenance. What’s not to love?

    Unlike wooden fences, PVC will not warp, rot or splinter and UV inhibitors are added to ensure that your fence will be looking great for years to come. Plus, the tensile strength of vinyl is five times the strength of wood – meaning a PVC fence will require five times more strength to destroy than a wooden fence.

    If you want a certain look without having to tediously paint for hours, vinyl is the way to go.  And if you still desire that classic wood look, vinyl fencing can be embossed to resemble wood.

    This article outlines even more of the benefits of vinyl fencing.

    • Because of their flexibility, vinyl fences are great in areas with high winds or frequent storms.
    • Vinyl fencing will not lose its color.
    • The time and cost of maintenance for a vinyl fence is practically zero.
    • They are very durable. They will not decompose or rust. Vinyl fences last long and look great for years.
    • Vinyl fences are non-toxic.
    • Vinyl Fencing is relatively cheap.

    With so many advantages, it is hard to argue against vinyl. But in the end, some people just like the natural look of wood and do not mind the extra work it entails.
