If you are shopping for a commercial fence for your property, then you have probably seen a lot of options for design and materials. In particular, you might have come across PVC vinyl and wondered if it is a reliable material for your fence. Here are some things to consider when you look at PVC vinyl fencing.
Lightweight and Durable
PVC vinyl fencing is very easy to install because vinyl is such a lightweight material. That means that you will save time and money on the installation process. Even though PVC vinyl fencing is lightweight, it is also resilient. The material is modified to resist fading, and you also have the option to reinforce your PVC vinyl fence with aluminum for added stability.
One of the biggest reasons why people choose PVC vinyl fencing material is because it is so low maintenance. Not only is this material rot-proof and rust-proof, but it is very easy to clean. All you need to do is hose it down occasionally to prevent dirt and mold buildup. And because PVC vinyl comes in a near limitless option of colors, you can find something that will fit the style of your property and look great for years to come.
Although there are a lot of benefits to PVC vinyl fences, they do have some key drawbacks as well. Unlike chain link, steel, or iron fences, PVC vinyl isn’t durable enough to serve as a high security fence. Part of the reason for PVC vinyl’s lack of durability is the way it is constructed. The fence fits together by linking each piece to the next, without the need for screws or nails. While this contributes to easier installation, the tradeoff is that this fence can also be easier to break apart. Another vulnerability of PVC vinyl is its temperature sensitivity. In extreme heat, it can soften while cold may make it brittle. All these things considered, PVC vinyl fencing could be the right choice for your commercial property if the pros are more important to you than the cons.
