There are many benefits to installing a fence during the off-seasons of fall and winter. One significant advantage of installing a new home vinyl fence during the fall season is that you can benefit from the fence’s low-maintenance but high-quality materials. Vinyl fences are designed to withstand various weather conditions, which makes them excellent for Maryland homes that experience every season. When you install vinyl fencing this winter, you can benefit from the many advantages that come with vinyl fencing.
No Painting Required
Vinyl fencing doesn’t require painting or staining to withstand the elements. During the winter, this means that when snow accumulates around posts, you won’t have to worry about future repainting or restaining. This makes vinyl a better alternative to wood or wrought iron, which may suffer some snow and ice damage. Even after years of winter weather, your vinyl fence won’t peel, fade, or chip.
Unlike other fencing materials, vinyl is resistant to every element of winter weather. While other materials may rust or decay when faced with water or ice, your vinyl fence will remain as good as new. This is due to the ultra-rigid PVC compounds that are the primary material in vinyl fencing. Fortunately, this material also holds up well underneath exposure to UV rays, which makes the fence durable during intense summer sun as well.
Vinyl fencing comes in a variety of designs to suit your fencing preference. Some can even be made to look like wood fences! You can select the right color, style, and finishes to complement your existing home architecture. You can enjoy privacy fences, post-and-rail fences, picket fences, and more.
No Fading or Staining
Once the winter snow melts and the rainwater recedes, stained fences may show a watermark. As the sun peeks through the clouds, those same posts might start fading or turning yellow underneath those sun rays. However, you won’t have to worry about this with your vinyl fence. Vinyl fences are designed to reflect the sun’s rays rather than absorb them, so you can rest easy knowing that the coloring won’t stain or fade over time.
Resistant to Breaking
As temperatures drop, many materials may become brittle and breakable. Not with vinyl fencing! The material is built to accommodate fluctuations in temperature, with small expansions and contractions depending on the weather. The hard outer shell of a vinyl fence protects it from the elements, while the inner shell includes a crack-resistant compound.
Easy to Clean
Naturally, dirt and debris can cling to your vinyl fence, especially once that winter snow turns to mud. However, you won’t have to spend hours outdoors cleaning your fence. Instead, if you have a hose and a wash mitt, you have the simple tools required to clean your new fence.
If you install your new vinyl fence before winter arrives, you can rest easy during the snowy season and know that your fence will be just as beautiful next spring.
