There are a number of good Ottawa fence materials on the market today. One of the more popular versions is vinyl. Fences made from this product are durable, easily maintained, and lovely.

Vinyl fencing is an excellent option for homeowners who want to improve the look of their property without spending too much money. This material has several advantages over other fence materials, including its ability to withstand harsh weather conditions and its versatility when it comes to design, which is essential in Canada. It can also be easily maintained with just a little bit of cleaning and periodic touch-ups.

Here are some typical questions about Ottawa fences answered.

Ingredients

The main product is PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, resin. It has been developed for long-term ultraviolet (UV) resistance and strength.

Maintenance

Wood fences require regular staining or painting. Vinyl maintains its colour and gloss year over year. Hose it off occasionally or use some soapy water.

Colours

There are a wide variety of colour choices.

Fading

Studies have shown very little colour change over the years.

Duration

A high-quality vinyl fence lasts longer than those made from other materials with proper installation. Warranties and guarantees will vary from manufacturer and installer.

Fireproof

Vinyl does not ignite very quickly. In fact, it takes 900 degrees F for it to catch fire and then it will not continue to burn on its own. 

Flexibility

While winter temperatures can make the vinyl more brittle unless it suffers an impact, it should withstand the cold weather.

Peeling

The fence should not peel, chip or crack under ordinary circumstances.

Children and Pets

Since there are no sharp projectiles or splintering, accidents are rare with a vinyl fence. Since it is tasteless, livestock avoids it.

Horses

Since it has a smooth surface, horses do not find it comfortable for scratching.  

Mould and Mildew

Exposure to consistently high humidity or prolonged damp weather, the fence can begin to show signs of mould or mildew. However, this is easily removed with mild soap and water.

Wind

Depending on the quality of materials, design, and installation, most vinyl fences can withstand 100 miles per hour wind.

Breakage

With normal use and proper installation, the fence is durable. It will break with high impacts like from a vehicle or falling tree.

Weed Eaters

Any PVC product can be damaged by the nylon string of a line trimmer.
