While the most popular fencing material for residential fences is typically pressure treated or cedar wood, more homeowners are seeing the benefits of vinyl fencing. It’s affordable, durable and versatile. First Class Fencing, fence contractors in Calgary, share the many advantages of vinyl fencing for residential, acreage or farm property:
Vinyl fencing requires little to no maintenance.
If you like the idea of never having to paint your fence again, then vinyl fencing is the right choice for you. Vinyl fencing retains its colour, so you don’t have to worry about painting or staining your fence. It can be cleaned easily with a garden hose each spring and won’t require fence board replacements and repair like a wood fence might. Vinyl fencing is virtually maintenance free.
Vinyl fencing is durable.
When properly installed, vinyl fencing in Calgary is resistant to corrosion, moisture, rot, discolouring and inspects. It can have five times the tensile strength of wood and when installed by First Class Fencing, it comes with a lifetime warranty. A vinyl fence could be the last fence you install on your residential, commercial, industrial or rural property.
Vinyl fencing is eco-friendly.
Vinyl fencing is made from 100% recycled materials. Unlike a wood fence, it does not require a chemical application like paint or stain to keep it looking great, just wash it each year with a pressure washer or garden hose. That means fewer chemicals are released into the environment maintaining your fence and fewer resources are used too.
Vinyl fencing is versatile.
You can choose from a range of colours including maple, grey, mocha, white, almond and clay and have your vinyl fence mimic the look of a natural wood fence. You can also choose from a range of fencing styles from regular plank fencing, privacy fencing, picket fences and even post and rail vinyl fencing for your farm or acreage.
Vinyl fences are flexible and safe.
Vinyl fencing Calgary is strong, but also flexible and able to withstand the harsh elements we have here in Alberta like rain, snow, hail and wind. Its flexibility makes it a good choice for horse fencing as horses can lean up against it without breaking it and unlike wood fencing, it won’t scratch the animals or give them splinters. It also won’t give your kids slivers, which makes it safe at home too.
