Here are the top 5 benefits of owning a vinyl fence:

1. Benefits Over Wood Fencing

Vinyl is nearly five times as strong as wood and thus it takes much more to bring down a vinyl fence than a wooden one. The flexibility of vinyl makes it a good choice in places that witness extreme weather conditions such as strong winds and rain. Wood fences are more likely to break and collapse in such weather. Vinyl fences are also preferred in seaside locations which see a significant amount of salt water exposure. They are also suitable for fencing in animals like horses as the animals can neither chew through it nor hurt themselves if they attempt to run through it.
2. Easy Maintenance

The maintenance required in vinyl fences is next to nothing. Just some general cleaning with soap and water is sufficient to keep your vinyl fence clean and sparkling. Since it does not change color or lose its color, there is no need to repaint it often. You do not have to apply any primer on it or protect it from rust. There is also no danger of rotting or termite attacks when you have vinyl fencing.
3. Non-Toxic Benefits

Vinyl fencing is non-toxic because it is not treated with harmful or hazardous chemicals. Since it is recycled, there is no wastage involved. Vinyl consists of 51 percent of chlorine which is derived from salt, and 49 percent is made from hydrocarbons that are derived from natural gas. Natural gas is also very cheap right now which should mean this is a good time to buy a fence of this make. America is loaded in natural resource and soon all heavy big rigs will run on this fuel source, keeping America’s money in house. Moreover, recycling vinyl is slowly but steadily gathering momentum which only makes sense for the aforementioned reasons and ones to follow.
4. Economical Choice of Vinyl Fencing

The cost of buying a vinyl fence is much cheaper than that of a wood or iron fence (as already touched upon). Also, since there is no maintenance required, you will also save the money you might have to spend on maintaining a wood or iron fence at least a couple of times in a year. This includes savings on the repainting costs as well as costs of primer or any other treatments that might have to be done to keep the fence safe from termites and rot.
5.Vinyl Fencing Makes for Easy Installation

Since vinyl fences are very easy to install, most people can put them up by themselves. All you have to do is slide the rails into the posts and then secure the posts into the ground. This again translates into savings because you will not have to pay a professional to do the installation for you unless you want to pass on this manual labor. In case you need to replace the fence after a few years, it will not be difficult because removing the old one and affixing a new one will be just as easy.

Short and Long Term Benefits of Vinyl Fencing

The benefits of a vinyl fence certainly outweigh its disadvantages by far. Since they are available in a variety of colors, it becomes easy to match the fence to the color of your home and to your surroundings. If it is hassle-free fencing you are looking for, then vinyl is certainly the right choice for you. Keeping these facts in mind, while shopping for a fence, is sure to help you make the right choice. Your neighbors and friends will know you made the right choices and the value of your home will rise as a result.

Privacy Wood Fence

It can be difficult to enjoy dinner on the patio if everyone on the street has a clear view of your back yard.  A six-foot-tall privacy fence can help create a peaceful get-away in nearly any neighborhood.
privacy-wood-fenceA privacy fence can be a great addition to your backyard. If it is your aim to keep in pets and children, then a wood privacy fence is the way to go. These types of fences are generally 6′ high, and are built with posts approximately 8′ apart. Although it is acceptable to construct these types of fences with only two horizontal rails, it is generally considered best to implement the three-rail system.
And again, there are things to consider before choosing a privacy wood fence. Some may consider a 6′ fence to be an obstruction that kills curb appeal, and makes a potential buyer wonder “what they are trying to hide”. The types of fences we choose to build should be well thought out, and planned for practical use.


A privacy fence can help provide a safe environment for children and pets, as well as prevent entry from other unwanted strangers or animals.

3. As a Security Fence  A 6′ fence can help protect your family – and your possessions – from those who would enter your yard for the wrong reasons. If you have a swimming pool or playground equipment, a fence can prevent trespassers from putting themselves in danger.

4. Noise reduction If your house is near a busy street, you may find yourself screaming to be heard over the traffic noise. An 8-foot-high solid fence can knock 6 to 10 decibels off traffic and other ambient noise. Wood Privacy Fencing is among a handful of products that have traditionally been used to reduce sound along noisy streets.

5. Design element. An attractive, well-constructed fence can add to your home’s overall appeal. But remember, a waist-high fence, such as a picket fence, can both define your property boundary and attract the eye through thoughtful landscaping… something to especially consider for your front yard if security is not an issue. The types of fences you decide upon, will be with you for many years. Call Youngs River Fence, for some expert advice.
