For most people their house is their single largest investment. For many people their yard is a reflection of their own personality.
What does your fence say about you?
At some point you may want to sell your house, and one of the first things a buyer will notice about a property is a fence. If buyers see a run-down fence, they will most likely take the cost of a new one out of the price of the house, not to mention it will take longer to sell, costing you time and money.
Vinyl fencing with its hundreds of different styles will be an investment you won’t lose money on. Ask us, we have a fence to suit your needs… and budget!
Most people think to have a beautiful fenced yard is impossible, too expensive. That couldn’t be further from the truth! Vinyl fencing will save you money, not to mention time, and will look amazing for years to come. When considering a fence ask yourself what you want and need the fence to do and for how long.
We are aware that vinyl fencing is not the cheapest fence out there initially, but within a few years of maintaining other fencing (especially wood) it sure will be. Basically, it comes down to pay now or pay later. If you pay now you will have a picture- perfect fence you can be proud to stand beside. If you choose to pay later, that’s exactly what you will do. You will get a fence you will stand beside for hours stripping and painting or staining and sealing, trying to fight your way between landscaping and fence, dripping harmful chemicals from the paint or stain along the way, all the while eating into your wallet.
A person’s home is probably their largest investment. A home is not just a house but rather is a reflection of you and your personality. A vinyl fence is extremely low maintenance and provides wonderful curb appeal. This is something to consider whether you plan to live in your house for years to come or have bought your house as an investment to renovate and flip. If you plan on staying in your home for years, ask yourself: ‘Do I want to spend my valuable time fixing and maintaining a fence? Or do I want to pay someone and spend my hard earned dollars to repair and/or maintain my original investment? Do I want to invest in a product that needs replacing in 5-10 years or if I’m lucky 15-20 years?
Will vinyl fence increase the value of my property?’ If you plan on selling your house, a fence is one of the first thing’s a prospective homeowner will see. A fence and the condition of that fence will tell a lot about you and the perceived value of your house. If people are walking into your yard and the first thing they see is a fence that either need’s painting or replacing even in part, this can automatically lower the perceived value of a property. On average a fence is the # 1 thing people look for when purchasing a house (keeping children and/or dogs in or out), next comes the deck and railing. Take a drive around your neighborhood and really look at the condition of the fences and yards. Whether consciously or not their condition changes your perception of that neighborhood. Take a look at some of our before and after pictures and decide for yourself!
Many customers do not feel they can afford vinyl fencing however if you have budgetary restraints we have bank financing options. Ask us about them! Imagine all the time and effort spared when you are not maintaining a fence. This can be redirected to more important matters, after all, aren’t you worth it? This graph represents maintenance on different styles of fencing. The starting point used is vinyl at 100%. You can see that vinyl and aluminum are comparable in price but unlike vinyl eventually aluminum needs to be repainted. As well aluminum can bend and to maintain the beauty of your fence these pieces need to be replaced or repaired, not an easy fix. Wrought Iron is much more expensive and will also need to be repainted so that it does not rust. While wood is initially cheaper than vinyl it is also the most expensive to maintain. Chain Link is the least expensive fencing option but it also looks institutional and does not add to the perceived value of your house. With vinyl there is no maintenance involved, there is no ‘Well I should…’, no guilt about that fencing maintenance project that never seems to get done.
