Wood requires maintenance. Painting every few years, and replacing old boards. The only maintenance for vinyl is washing with water if needed.
Metal/aluminum again requires painting, and is much more expensive.
Vinyl and wood fence cost about the same. After installation, there will be no expensive repairs for vinyl fence.
Installation is simple even for the common person.
Vinyl fence is very light-weight. Particularly on new ground, this is a major benefit to heavier types of fence materials. The lighter vinyl material will not shift on new ground.
The vinyl can be easily installed in the ground with metal spikes, or by pouring concrete in the hole surrounding the post.
Vinyl fences have also become more common in Finland. Our company has sold vinyl fence for 10 years. In North America, almost all the fences are made of vinyl because of these many important advantages.
Our vinyl products are manufactured by Fence Master who is the longest-running Asian manufacturer in the field. The factory gives a long warranty on its products, and they have been well tested for over 12 years in U.S.A and Canada, where the weather conditions are the same as in the Nordic countries.
