Why Vinyl Fencing Is Better than Chain Link

When you’re trying to choose a fencing option for your home or commercial property, you have choices—but a lot of those choices are less attractive than others. There’s something to be said for installing a beautiful, functional and durable fence instead of a practical but less-than-gorgeous choice, like chain link.

Here’s why we think you’ll love vinyl fencing in Santa Clarita, CA:

  • It’s low maintenance: The fact is, chain link fencing simply isn’t a low-maintenance kind of fence, unless you like rust and corrosion, constant repairs and vulnerability to the elements. Do you really want to spend your weekends washing and repairing your fence? Probably not. Vinyl, on the other hand, is easy to clean with just soap and water, guaranteeing that your fence will continue to look great with very little effort required.
  • Vinyl is durable: Chain link is prone to breakage as well as rust and corrosion in inclement weather—even the relatively little rain we get in Southern California can still do a number on the metal. In contrast, vinyl is super durable—it is virtually impervious to the elements and has manufacturers’ warranties to match.
  • Vinyl looks better than chain link fencing: Does anyone think that chain link fencing looks nice? It’s a practical sort of fence that works well for schools and industrial areas, but nothing about it is particularly welcoming or pretty. You can get the same practical results in a much prettier exterior when you make the jump to vinyl.
  • It’s better for keeping pets (and people) inside the property: If you have pets or small children, you know how important it is to keep them inside and safe, where you can keep an eye on them. Chain link fences are incredibly easy to scale, which isn’t good when you have a climber, whether it’s a pet or a child. Vinyl pickets, on the other hand, are not only sturdy but much harder for children and pets to climb. Finally, if you’re concerned about security, vinyl fencing does a better job of keeping unwanted people off your property—they will have a much harder time scaling it.

Ultimately, you should choose your fencing according to your property’s needs as well as your goals for the fencing. Should it look nice? Do you want to keep your children and pets inside, or protect your home? Whatever you choose, there’s a fencing option that will not only fill your needs, but also look great at the same time.
