vinyl fences ontarioSo, you’ve figured out that a wood ranch rail fence is going to take a lot of maintenance? Good for you, because a vinyl or composite fence for your horse ranch will last many more years and won’t ever need to be painted. In fact, some are backed by a lifetime warranty. No more replacing those miles of wood fences and cross-fences every 5 to 15 years!

Whether it’s vinyl or composite ranch rail fencing you choose, the result will wind up a much better investment. Fence building for a ranch means miles of material to replace. Although vinyl or composite ranch rail does cost more upfront, you won’t be faced with the several replacements during the lifetime of a wood fence.

Here is a closer look at the differences between vinyl ranch rail fencing and the alternative composites from Modern Decks & Vinyl Fences in Ontario.

What Vinyl Fencing Is Made Of

Vinyl fencing is made of pure PVC (polyvinyl chloride). It entered the market during the late 1970’s but wasn’t as strong as it is today. You can get what’s called a “Super Fence” that is much heavier and thicker than traditional vinyl ranch rail.

We get our vinyl ranch rail fencing material from a supplier called All Season Fencing because we feel that they make the best PVC vinyl ranch rail fences.

What Composite Fencing Is Made Of

Composite ranch rail fencing is made from recycled wood and plastic particles. It is solid rather than hollow like vinyl fencing. However, both are more durable than wood.

Our customers love Fiberon ranch rail fencing because the composite options come in coastal cedar, pacific redwood, and weathered pine. This fence is very durable. We also install Trex composite privacy fencing which is made from 95% recycled materials.

The Upside of Vinyl vs. Composite Fencing

– The horizontal boards of a composite ranch rail fence won’t sag because the material is very strong and is solid. Composite fence posts are also said to be thicker than vinyl. They don’t have to be sleeved or supported by metal for extra strength because the vinyl fence is hollow.

– Both the composite and vinyl fencing will not ever need to be painted or sealed for protection. They are very resistant to rotting and insect damage.

– Composite ranch rail fences are said to be made of a greener material because PVC is made of pure virgin plastic while composite fences are made of mostly recycled wood with some recycled plastic.

– Vinyl fences are easier to install because they don’t need screws or nails. Instead, they are formed into panels that notch together.

Drawbacks For Both Fence Types

Composite ranch rail fencing doesn’t have some of the drawbacks associated with vinyl fencing. However, there are some.

– Because a composite ranch rail fence is mostly made of wood particles, it is more expensive than vinyl. Also, the color can vary because it is made of recycled materials.

– Vinyl fencing can get cracked, especially around the base of the fence near the ground. The color can also fade as it is more affected by the sun’s rays because of its chemical formula. As mentioned, the vinyl fence you choose needs to be strong so there’s no problem with the rails sagging. Call Modern Decks and Fences for more information today!

vinyl fences ontarioSure good fences in Ontario are supposed to make good neighbours, but there has to be more to it than that. The truth of the matter is that there are a number of good reasons for Ontario homeowners to add fencing to their property.

Unfortunately, without a little research, many homeowners are missing out on the benefits that they could be enjoying with the right fencing – like the many advantages of opting for vinyl fences in Ontario. Make it a point to find out more about other advantages adding fencing will bring so that you do not miss out, because there are certainly more than just the ones listed here.

The Difference Fencing Will Make

Your home is your castle, so don’t you want to enclose it with fencing? If you are still, dare we say, on the fence about whether or not this is right for you, consider these benefits:

  • The number one priority for any homeowner is safety. Safety of the people in your yard and for anyone who may try to enter your yard. This is especially true if you have a pool, or any other potential hazard. Keep out uninvited guests and have peace of mind that your kids playing in the yard will remain there safely.
  • A huge benefit of a quality fence is privacy. Having land to spend time on is a wonderful thing, but only if you can feel as though you have some privacy, as well. There is no reason for passing cars or fellow neighbors to have a clear and open view into your private property.
  • Of course, it certainly does not hurt that adding a quality fence will also help to increase the property value of your home. That makes this a wise investment as opposed to a useless expense.
  • On top of everything else, your well-built fence can also add to the curb appeal. Every aspect of your home should add something and enhance the overall look. There is no reason to settle for a fence that adds nothing or, even worse, detracts from the overall look of the property.
  • Let’s not forget one of the main reasons a homeowner would get a fence in the first place – a clear and discernible division between properties.
