Vinyl /Aluminum Fencing
When deciding on what kind of fencing install to go with, there are lots of considerations you’ll need to make. What budget are you working with? What kind of aesthetic are you looking for? How long are you looking for the fence to last? These are all reasonable and relevant questions for this decision. Vinyl and aluminum fences are worthy contributors in this conversation, and both have their own significant benefits that make them a good choice for your property. We’ve installed many vinyl and aluminum fences at Vancouver Fencing, and the results speak for themselves. If you’re considering either of these options, read on below for more information.
Perhaps the most common fencing material is wood – something we’re a big fan of. It has a lot of qualities that make it a fine choice for fencing, but in terms of durability, it simply pales in comparison to vinyl installations. Vinyl is actually about 5 times stronger than wood – 5 times! That’s no small factor. You can expect vinyl set ups to stand up to any physical pressure, and it’s also possesses a stubborn resilience against moisture, so there’s no chance it will peel, rot, or blister. This makes it an ideal choice for those with water features – natural or manufactured – on their property.
If you choose to go vinyl, you’ll have a veritable catalogue of styles available to you, with staggering versatility amongst them. It can come in all sorts of set ups – from picket and ornamental, to post-and-rail or privacy fences – and you’ll be able to choose whatever suits your needs best. Although they don’t tend to be available in a lot of colours (usually just tan or white), the classic looks that are available are ordinarily suitable for pretty much any setting or environment you could imagine.
One of the significant advantages of choosing aluminum fencing is that it is superb when it comes to fitting the relief of the land on your property. It can be precisely adjusted to fit your landscape, ensuring that you won’t have any gaps which could allow children or pets to squeeze through, or intruders to infiltrate through. These kinds of gaps also make the installation look shoddy, which is the last thing you want when you might potentially be spending thousands of dollars on a fencing install across your property.
Aluminum is a real inspiration when it comes to durability and protection against the elements – something we always need to consider in British Columbia. We’re often dealing with unpredictable, adverse weather conditions, and having your property set up to handle them in advance can be a real load off your mind. Aluminum is not chemically vulnerable to corrosion in the way that iron is, so it won’t rust. Moisture, UV damage, and extreme temperatures aren’t concerns either, as it won’t fade or rot. This is best in class quality in terms of toughness, and whether you’re dealing with rain, snow, wind, or even termites, aluminum fences are more than up to the challenge – and we’re just the fencing contractor to deal with installation for you.
