The purpose of a fence is simple: It defines property lines, provides privacy and offers protection. For properties that have a fence, it is an integral part of the landscape.
Constantly exposed to the elements, fences can rot, crack, split and otherwise fall apart over time if not manufactured out of a highly durable material. As fencing is so important and should last many, many years, it is important that the material used is as durable as possible. While there are several different types of materials that fences can be made of, and some materials are much more durable than others. The most durable fencing materials include:
- Vinyl: Vinyl, or PVC, is one of the most popular fencing materials, primarily because of its unmatched durability. It is resistant to the elements, which means that it won't rot, rust, crack or splinter when exposed to hot and cold temperatures as well as moisture. A vinyl fence is a great option in climates that experience a variety of weather conditions.
- Wrought Iron: This material is extremely strong, which makes it difficult to break. It won't crack or splinter when exposed to the elements and is a great choice for security purposes.
- Galvanized Chain Link: When sealed with a special coating, chain link is an extremely durable fencing material. A galvanized chain link fence offers excellent security, and because of the special coating, it more resistant to the effects of the elements.
