How to Transform a Boring Fence into Art
A beautiful fence is part of a new yard. The exterior look will serve as a social contribution to the scenery of your house and the neighborhood as well.
But art does not necessarily mean beauty. Art may be part of expressing a feeling or a belief. And part of the expression of art in fences may be to show strength.
In this case of fences, art will involve not only decorations but also maintenance.
Can you change the look of your vinyl fence by painting it?
The material is used to make it is Vinyl which is made of chlorine and ethylene. They combine to form polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The word Vinyl is derived from the compound. Vinyl is synthetic because the substances used to make it are naturally occurring.
Not all paints will work well with the vinyl fence.
The Vinyl fence has a high expansion and contraction affinity due to the PVC.
The material being plastic, it does not hold well against heat and when you apply the dark colors, for instance, Black and Blue, you will be subjecting the plastic to a trait of dark colors, which is the absorption of heat.
The plastic will thus expand excessively, and at an extreme, the plastic could warp permanently.
Bright colors, on the other hand, will perform excellently with this type of offense. These colors reflect heat instead of absorbing it. The fence will thus not expand a lot or enough to cause damage.
You can thus change the look of your fence by painting it. You will, however, need to prepare it with prime first, and when it is dry, you can then paint the wall and have your new look.
The paint that the vinyl surface can adhere to is to be based from epoxy. The Vinyl fence is however manufactured to last through all sorts of weather and outlive wooden fences.
