Vinyl Fencing is a plastic-based alternative for fencing instead of wood or chain-link type fences. There are multiple benefits for using vinyl instead of wood or metal. Let us answer the following questions to help you understand these benefits: “What is Vinyl?” and “Why is it used for fencing?”
What is Vinyl?
Vinyl is a synthetic material made from ethylene and chlorine (both of which are natural substances). When combined, these substances form Polyvinyl Chloride, also known as PVC, which is also commonly referred to as “Vinyl.” Today, Vinyl is the 2nd largest manufactured and sold plastic resin in the entire world. Vinyl is also referred to as the “infrastructure plastic” because 76% of Vinyl is used for building and construction purposes. This is a big reason why vinyl is used for fencing.
Why is it used for fencing?
Experts say that vinyl is nearly 5 times stronger than wood. Vinyl is also very flexible, which makes it a good choice in Utah with the extreme weather conditions such as strong winds, rain, and snow. Wood fences are more likely to break in such weather. Vinyl fencing is also easy to wash, all you need is soap and water. You will never have to stain or paint a vinyl fence because the color does not fade or wear out.
