What Are The Advantages Of Vinyl Fencing?

Advantages of Vinyl Fencing

There are many benefits to vinyl fencing and everything that comes with it. Vinyl fencing is becoming a popular alternative to perimeter security due to its low cost, minimal maintenance, durability, and more. Many people choose vinyl over a wooden or chain link fence for the clean look because of its rust-free and long-lasting properties. Vinyl fencing can fit any aesthetic, whereas other types of fencing can only be shaped and made in a couple of ways. There are multiple color options when it comes to vinyl fencing. As for chain link fences, there are only two types; black and galvanized metal. There are plenty of advantages to vinyl fencing, and knowing them will help sway anyone that may be on the fence about choosing vinyl over other materials.

Minimal Maintenance

There is hardly any maintenance involved with vinyl fencing. That's one of the good things about it. Some fences need to be painted or stained every so often, but that's not the case with vinyl. The usual maintenance needed with a vinyl fence is occasional cleaning and maybe a replacement part if something breaks. The fence can easily be cleaned with soapy water and a rag. If there is mildew buildup, simply use some bleach and wipe it off. There isn't much scrubbing involved. Using a pressure washer is another option for people who don't want to use a rag. There is no need to worry about the pressure washer damaging the fence.

High Strength

Vinyl fences are extremely strong for their weight. Vinyl fences that are 6 ft. tall or less and are installed according to the high wind guidelines can withstand hurricane force winds. There is no need to fear if wanting to install a vinyl fence near the coast or in high-wind areas. A lot of people choose to use post stiffeners if they live in coastal regions or areas that are prone to hurricanes and strong winds. These stiffeners can be inserted into the vinyl post. These "I" shaped inserts act as an endoskeleton for the posts, giving it extremely high internal strength with easy installation and low maintenance.

Weather Resistant

One of the best things about vinyl fencing is that there is no chance for the fence to start rusting or deteriorating. A common problem with chain link fences is that they start rusting after a few years, even if they are galvanized. Wooden fences start to hold moisture after a while and then deteriorate. Vinyl fences will not crack, rot, chip, or become discolored, no matter how much water or heavy winds it experiences. You can depend on the fence looking the same as the day you got it years later.


Another great thing about vinyl fences is their clean, sleek look. They don't have rough edges like a chain link or wooden fence. This also adds to the safety of the fence. There can be many sharp points on other types, but vinyl fences do not. There's no need to worry about a pet or person getting cut or injured on the fence. The beautiful aesthetic that a vinyl fence gives off can raise the home's value. People with pets or kids will re-consider the house with a nice fence instead of a house with no fence or a rusty, dull-looking fence, even in a nice neighborhood.
