The American dream: a great job, a beautiful wife, two kids – a boy and a girl – a dog, a nice house in the suburbs, and a white picket fence. The American dream has changed little over the years. We still strive for that great job. We are still all looking for that beautiful woman to make our wife. We still dream of the two kids, dog, and home in the suburbs. The only thing that has changed is the fence.
Wooden picket fences are a thing of the past. While they are aesthetically appealing, wooden fences require A LOT of work. And that is just the beginning. Wood fences are also prone to termites, rot, and premature ageing. This is why today’s white picket fences are no longer made of wood, but rather vinyl.
The American Dream Revisited: The White (Vinyl) Picket Fence
Since vinyl fencing was introduced to the United States over 20 years ago, homeowners have ditched the old American dream for one involving vinyl. Why? A white vinyl picket fence gives you all the benefits of a woof fence without all of the maintenance. Benefits include:
- Durability: Unlike a wood fence, vinyl will never rot. Vinyl is also resistant to termites, mold and mildew, and even fire.
- Maintenance: Unlike wood, vinyl is low maintenance. You will never have to paint or stain a vinyl fence. You may, however, have to clean it on occasion. Fortunately, with vinyl, it does not take much to get your fence looking like new.
- Cost: While vinyl fencing may initially cost you more than wood or even metal fencing, it will actually save you money in the long run.
