Now that you’re ready for a new fence, you might want to have one that’s made of vinyl. But if you’re used to a white picket fence or a chain link fence sitting in your yard, then you might not know all that much about fences made of vinyl. Here are some more facts about vinyl fences.
It’s Much Stronger than Wood
It might surprise you that vinyl is stronger than wood is. Vinyl is more resistant to physical damage such as a ball hitting it, or your pet attempting to break through it. Plus, wind and rain won’t be able to affect it as much as a wooden fence. The vinyl can also bend, which means that it’s more flexible than fences made of wood.
You Can Recycle It
Every so often, you will need to dispose of your existing fence. Before you can start installing a new fence, you’ll need to dispose of the old one. That doesn’t mean you need to throw it away, though. You can recycle the vinyl that you use for your fence. Machines can break it down into smaller pieces that are then used to create other items made of vinyl. It can also be dissolved into the original chemicals used to manufacture it.
It Won’t Pollute the Air
Because chemicals are used to make vinyl fences, you might worry about possible pollution. Still, vinyl fences won’t pollute the air around you, because they don’t release volatile organic compounds, also known as VOCs. Vinyl fences can withstand the damage caused by insects, so that means they don’t need and treatments to keep the bugs away. These treatments tend to give off toxic fumes. You also won’t need to add layers of stain or coats of paint to help increase the curb appeal of your home.
You Can Choose Different Designs
Vinyl fences don’t have to be boring, either. That’s because you can choose different designs for them. They can be many different colors, used to increase your home’s privacy, and look like other types of fence-building materials, such as brick, stone, or wood.
