The Perks of Using Vinyl Fences and Gates11/04/2013 Back To Blog
Vinyl is among the most popular new gate installation materials used today. Why vinyl? Well, while some see this material as unreliable and not sturdy, others argue that vinyl is durable and requires lesser maintenance. Today, PVC, or polyvinyl chloride fences are installed in different forms, from single-swing to rolling, vertical and bi-parting vinyl gates. Here are a few of the many perks of using vinyl fences.
Why Choose Vinyl Fences?
There are a lot of reasons why vinyl is becoming the material of choice for many homeowners today. Let's list down some of the perks of using them as driveway gate openers.
• Vinyl is actually a type of plastic that has exceptional tensile strength and is five times stronger and more flexible than wood. They are best used in areas where there is high wind and rain or moisture because they do not easily break or collapse.
• Vinyl gates also do not lose their color, nor will they easily get stained. Homeowners who own this type of gates will no longer need to put primers and other paints because the gate's color stays the same in one piece. The homeowner will also no longer have to pressure wash them every day, nor fear about the paint chipping over time.
• Vinyl fences and gates are also safe and non-toxic as compared to other fencing and gating materials. They also cost less than other materials. And unlike wrought iron gates, you can quickly wash vinyl gates with pure soap and water, and you'll get shiny, brand-new looking gates in a flurry!
• Homeowners can also opt and choose from a variety of vinyl fence materials. And with so many design and color options to choose from, vinyl fences can provide a truly flexible option when it comes accentuating the home's current look and feel. You can also make the vinyl fence automated, through the use of a remote gate clicker.
