Picket fencing has long been a trademark of the American home, but wooden fencing requires upkeep. However, there is an alternative for busy homeowners who don’t want to spend the time maintaining a wooden picket fence. Vinyl fencing is the ideal solution for homeowners who wish to enjoy a traditional white picket fence but don’t want to deal with re-staining, painting, pests, and rot. Vinyl is impervious to moisture, completely unattractive to pests, and resists the effects of sun and weather.
The No-Maintenance Alternative
Vinyl fences are popular because they are durable and require almost no maintenance—just an occasional rinse with your garden hose to remove dust and dirt. Because these fences are constructed from a plastic compound, insects will simply ignore them, and unlike wood and other materials, they won’t rot or degrade. Today’s vinyl is infused with compounds that help it resist the effects of ultraviolet radiation, and the color of the material is saturated throughout, so your vinyl fence resists cracking and fading.
Appearance and Variety
Vinyl fences can mimic the appearance of wood, so your white picket fence will look just like a traditional wooden fence. Vinyl picket fences are available in a wide variety of styles, from traditional dog-ear wooden fences to decorative, ornamental scallop shapes.
