Pros and Cons of Vinyl Fencing

Here are the pros and cons of vinyl fencing.

Pros

  • Low-maintenance costs
Unlike wooden fence, vinyl doesn’t require staining, painting, or any other treatment to maintain it. It is manufactured to last for a lifetime, and most of the materials have warranties.
  • Long-lasting
Vinyl fences are durable, and they don’t crack or rot. Moreover, vinyl materials are resistant to fire and are not easily attacked by pests.
  • Attractive appearance
It is vital to choose a fence that complements the colour of your home. Vinyl is available in many colours, such as white, gray, and tan, and there is no need to paint it.
  • Simple installation
With the right tools and adherence to instructions, you can easily install a vinyl fence.

Cons

  • Expansion and contraction

Vinyl expands and contracts when temperatures fluctuate, which can deteriorates it overtime.

  • Extreme weather elements can damage vinyl materials
  • Vinyl fencing requires high cost of investment
  • The material is prone to staining by algae, mildew, and mold.

How Much Does Vinyl Fencing Cost?

In the UK, a vinyl fence costs around £2800.

For a picket fence style, it costs £16 per linear square foot. With £30 per linear square foot, you can build a privacy fence. On average, labour costs between £26 and £38 per hour. At Edinburgh Fencing Co, we can help you get vinyl materials at affordable rates.

Repairing a vinyl fence can be challenging if you don’t know how to go about it. If a part of the fence breaks, you will have to replace the entire panel based on the pieces fit together. Our fencing builders are adept at vinyl fence installation and replacement.
Vinyl fences are versatile, and they come in many colours, such as white, brown, grey, and black. Our technicians can help you select the colour that blends with your home. We can also texture the vinyl to look like natural wood. Vinyl fences come in a kit of interlocking pieces, hence making their installation simple. For instance, to install picket fences, you need to pound anchor pipes into the ground with a hammer, add fence posts over the pipes, and then fit together the rails and tickets.
