The New Atlanta Favorite ?
Could vinyl picket fencing become the new trend in Atlanta? Most homeowners would agree that a beautiful picket fence adds an aura of elegance to a home. And it’s no wonder why; picket fences have been popular for several centuries, first seen around the beginning of the 17th century.
Today, picket fences are still popular and have come to somewhat define the idea of metro Atlanta living and the American dream. Of course, the biggest attraction of the picket fence is its visual appeal, framing a yard or garden in a manner much like a picture frame.
Nice, But There are Maintenance Issues
While beautiful, picket fences have traditionally been made from wood. And so the biggest issue with wooden picket fences is the maintenance. A wooden fence is subject to general wear and tear, as well as the long term damage from sun, wind and rain. Plus, a wooden fence is also at risk from attack by termites and other wood boring insects. And, if you’re not planning to paint your fence, the long term care of your fence still requires at least a regular power washing and water sealer or stain.
Vinyl Picket Fencing to the Rescue!
But not to worry! Though picket fences are commonly made from wood, they can in fact be made from various other materials, including vinyl. If you like the idea of a house with a picket fence, but don’t want the maintenance, then consider vinyl. For many reasons, vinyl fences are rapidly becoming the most popular choice among homeowners in metro Atlanta.
