Cleaning: A few reasons why you would need to clean your vinyl fence would be: dirt and/or grass from the ground accumulating on the fence due to cutting the grass, leaves or other debris after a storm and rarely; you will notice a type of chalk build up develop on parts of the vinyl fence. These reasons are not major and are easily cleaned as explained below. The majority of vinyl fences can be cleaned very easily by just spraying the fence down with a water hose; however, if there are some tough stains that a water hose does not take care of, just follow the method below and your fence will look brand new every time you clean it! To prepare for cleaning a vinyl fence, you will want to decide if you are going to use a bucket of soapy water or a vinyl cleaning solution (can be purchased at your local hardware store) or a combination of both. If you are using a bucket of soapy water, you will want to fill the bucket with water to your desired amount and mix an environmentally safe cleaning solution in the bucket. (TIP: If it is environmentally safe,... It is vinyl fence safe) After you have your bucket of soapy water, all you must do now is get your soft cloth rag wet via the water in the bucket and wipe down the areas of the fence that need wiped down. If you are using a spray bottle of vinyl cleaning solution, just spray the areas of the fence that need cleaned and wipe with a dry soft cloth rag. When you are finished cleaning an area of the fence, rinse it off with a water hose and allow it to air dry.
Iron Fence Iron fence solves many of the above reasons for a fence except of course the privacy issue. You should also plan on repainting and replacing it down that same road as the wood fence, sooner if you are in a high moister area or it is subject to lawn sprinklers. Why you ask? A little thing called rust and corrosion, no matter how much its powder coated or whatever else, your iron fence will eventually rust.
Is a fence a fence? Actually a fence is really a fence no matter what its made of, but there are certainly advantages and disadvantages of one type over the other. The choice is yours. Please do your own research and find out for yourself which one would be best for you and your family. A good way to find information on a particular fence your interested in is to present your questions to someone who owns that type. Ask about maintenance and cost, along with what they like or dislike about their choice and experience.
Semi-Privacy Fence Homeowners who want partial privacy without feeling closed in can choose a semi-privacy fence. These are typically shorter than regular privacy fencing, with small spaces between the boards. Adjusting the gap width and board heights can create aesthetically pleasing designs. Try using tall, thin boards and placing them 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch apart. The slotted effect will make the fence seem more open, while the height will provide the illusion of extra privacy.
