Let’s say that after your wooden fence rotted away, you replaced with a new vinyl one. A vinyl fence won’t rot, but you will need to keep it clean so that mold and mildew don’t turn it into a hotel. Here are some common questions to ask when you are searching for your new vinyl fence.
How Did They Become So Popular?
For one thing, a vinyl fence can help boost your home’s curb appeal. For another, they will last for years on end, just be sure to keep them well-maintained. One of the best things about vinyl fences, though, is that they are incredibly easy to clean. This gives you more time to spend time inside with your family (or out hiking in the woods with your family, if you choose) instead of having to wash the grime off of the vinyl. You can choose different colors and styles too, so even if everyone else on your street has a similar fence, yours can still be distinctive.
Will They Wear Down?
It’s common for wood fences to start rotting, and even wrought iron and chain link fences will show their age. However, vinyl fences won’t lose their color or start to show the effects of the weather – whether it’s the wind whipping past, autumn sunlight breaking through the clouds, or constant barrages of rain and fog. Your vinyl fence will last.
How Long Do They Last?
You might also be curious how long vinyl fences are expected to last. Your vinyl fence will last anywhere from one year to five, depending on how well you take care of it and what warranties you purchase to cover them.
What Maintenance Do They Need?
Now we come back around to maintenance for vinyl fences. Rinse the fence with an ordinary garden hose to get rid of dirt, dust, and other debris from around your yard, especially if the leaves falling from the trees around your yard leave a sticky residue behind. You may need a pressure washer to get rid of anything that the hose can’t remove.
Does It Ever Break?
Wind can knock down fences and damage your home’s siding. However, you won’t have to worry about that affecting your vinyl fence. The only thing that can damage it is a severe impact, such as if you accidentally run into it with your riding mower or it is hit by a vehicle.
