Tan 4 rail vinyl horse fence

Are vinyl ranch rails the way to go? Are they really much better than wood? Can vinyl do the same job as wood rails on a ranch? These are popular questions from clients, and we hear them more and more each day.

At Fence Supply Online we know how good vinyl ranch rails can be. Our experience tells us that they do as good a job as wood and, in most cases, are even better. This can come as a bit of a surprise to some of our clients. We know that ranchers love their wood rail fences and that there is plenty to admire in them too.

Our team of experts got the task of drawing up a list of reasons why vinyl ranch rails are better than wood. They argued a lot for a few days but eventually came up with some answers. We took the best points to help our clients make up their minds.

Included on the list of why vinyl ranch rails are better than wood are:

  • Modern vinyl ranch rails do not rot
  • The color will last for years
  • Vinyl ranch rails are very low maintenance
  • The investment pays back over the life of the fence

Let’s take a closer look at each point.

Modern vinyl ranch rails do not rot

They do not bend, buckle or deteriorate either. Modern, American-made vinyl ranch rails are of the highest quality and are guaranteed for years of top-class service.

The vinyl ranch rail will not crack or split under pressure. The livestock can bump and crash against the fence, but it will stand tall and proud.

A big advantage of the vinyl ranch rail over wood is that it will not rot. The fence will put up with the worst of wet weather conditions without incurring any damage.

The color will last for years

Another big advantage of vinyl fencing is the strength of the color.

We supply BLACKline vinyl fencing products. The color will not fade, chalk or bleed under the extremes of the summer sun. Wind, rain, hail, or snow does not affect the color. A BLACKline vinyl ranch rail fence will look as good in ten years as it does on day one.

Think of all the time and money you will save in not having to paint the fence every couple of years.

Vinyl ranch rails are very low maintenance

One of the big problems with wood is the continuous maintenance. Each year you may need to paint, stain and seal a wood fence.

Not so with the vinyl ranch rail.

The vinyl does not rot, buckle, suffer from termites, and the color does not fade.

The less the maintenance, the better for the rancher.

The investment pays back over the life of the fence

The vinyl ranch rail may cost more on day one than the wood version.

Over the years, though, you will see a return on your investment. The low maintenance needs will save you money, and the low repair costs are another significant saving.

A fence that looks great, does its job and saves you money has to be a good investment.
