The most popular type of fence among Atlanta homeowners is made out of PVC, also known as polyvinyl chloride. It is renowned for its durability, low maintenance, and the fact that it won’t rot.
The goal of man has always been to make materials that are stronger than natural materials under all conditions. In the 1800s, researchers in Europe accidentally discovered PVC. It didn’t become widely used until the 1900s.
It is common to find PVC products in and around homes today, including trim, decks, and fences. PVC has many advantages, including being extremely fire resistant, looking great, and lasting a very long time.
Even though PVC requires more upfront investment than wood, it’s a long-term investment. Vinyl fences do not need painting. They barely need maintenance other than hosing them down once or twice a year. If you buy a PVC cleaner from your local hardware store or big box store, you can really bring back the shine to your fence. If there are any tough stains on your fence, a soft scrub brush will work.
The PVC fences come in a variety of colors and styles, and once installed, you won’t have to paint or stain them.
