PVC vinyl fencing is an excellent addition to any home that wants security, stability, and long-lasting style. However, some myths persist about vinyl fencing that simply are not true. If you have been wary of installing vinyl fencing on your property because of any of those popular myths, allow us to debunk them now. The fencing experts at Hercules Fence of Washington, D.C., have extensive knowledge of vinyl fencing, and can easily debunk the following five most popular vinyl fencing myths.
Vinyl Fades Over Time
Vinyl fencing is highly durable and is, in fact, often purchased explicitly for its durability. If your vinyl fence experiences fading due to aging and weathering, that often indicates that the fence was made from cheap and inferior vinyl. High-quality vinyl, which we provide at Hercules Fence of D.C., remains the way you bought it even after years of use.
You Cannot Customize Vinyl Fences
One of the common vinyl fencing myths is that vinyl fencing only comes in one style. On the contrary, vinyl fencing may be the most versatile type of fence which you can select in any color and style to suit your property or taste. Many people prefer white-colored vinyl fencing, due to its classic beauty and simplicity, but you can have your fence in other colors. Consult with your fencing contractor regarding your options.
Vinyl Fencing Is Not Environmentally Friendly
This myth comes from the belief that vinyl is a type of plastic made from chemicals, and therefore is not an environmentally friendly fencing material. High-quality vinyl fencing like that offered by Hercules Fence does not pollute the atmosphere or the soil with harmful chemicals.
Vinyl Fences Are Not Durable
If you have high-quality vinyl fencing installed, your vinyl fence can withstand most extreme weather conditions as well as heavy snow. Unlike aluminum or wood, vinyl does not rust or rot, so it will maintain the condition it had when installed.
Vinyl is High Maintenance
Of all the vinyl fencing myths out there, this one may be the most misleading. Vinyl fencing does not require much maintenance at all, usually just a yearly cleaning to make sure the color stays bright and clean. The cleaning process is quite simple, and because the fence is not susceptible to rust or rot, you don’t need to worry about more in-depth maintenance tasks.
