While trends in home and yard design are constantly changing and have changed a lot in previous decades, some things will always remain popular. One great example of this is the white picket fence. For decades, people have loved this simple yet elegant look and this has continued into 2019 and beyond.
There are many different benefits to having a picket fence. One of the biggest benefits of a picket fence is how much it can improve the look for your house, as it is often much more sleek and clean than large fences. It is a classic look that likely will never go out of style. It also comes in a variety of different styles from closed picket, open picket, scalloped picket and so many more. You can truly get creative with your picket fence in ways you aren’t always able to with other types. Also, because of the option to get it very short, it can even be used in the front yard, whereas most homes don’t have a fence in their front yard.
Also, these fences are generally much easier to install than larger fences. The pieces are smaller and thus, less heavy and easy to move around. Picket fences are generally more affordable than larger fences simply due to the fewer amounts of materials that are needed. Of course, if you opt for a non-traditional large picket fence, these benefits surrounding price and ease of installation might not always apply.
These small picket fences can also make you money, by potentially increasing the value of your home during a sale. Your fence is one of the first things people see when they approach your house, so if you have a nice, new, stylish and cute fence, you are making a good first impression. They are incredibly charming and are sure to impress.
While the classic small and white picket fence has remained popular, there are many different types of picket fences available today. They can be any of the nine colors available, and many people are experiencing with the design and size of their picket fences. The choice is yours!
As with any kind of fence in the modern day, these picket fences can be made out of a variety of different materials. While many traditional picket fences are made of wood, which is far from a perfect material to use. Wood can rot, and often needs to be stained, sealed or treated in another way to make sure that it can handle the tough weather conditions that we are used to seeing in Canada. Metal is another common material, but it is prone to rusting and can often show it’s age quickly, and may also need to be frequently maintained. While these are fine, there is another material that is becoming more and more popular among those looking to build picket fences: vinyl!
Vinyl is popular for the number of benefits it can provide as a fencing material. The most obvious benefit that vinyl provides is how low-maintenance it can be. It doesn’t suffer from the same rusting, rooting, chipping and discoloring that other materials can. It also won’t leave splinters, which is great for pets and children alike. Also, you don’t ever have to worry about staining or painting your vinyl fence to keep it looking fresh. All you really have to do to maintain your vinyl picket fence is wash it down with some soap and water every now and then. This very low level of maintenance will save you a lot of time, stress, hard work and money through the lifetime of your fence.
Beyond that, there are several other benefits of vinyl picket fences, including:
