5 Reasons Your Home Could Use a Vinyl Fence

reasons your home could use a vinyl fence

Any family interested in security and durability can use a vinyl fence for their yard.

If you’re searching for the perfect fence for your family home, you may consider vinyl fencing as your best option. This durable fence is excellent for homeowners who are on-the-go, concerned about their family’s safety, and on a budget. Read on for the reasons your home could use a vinyl fence before contacting a contractor at Hercules Fence of Washington, D.C., to discuss your installation options. 

Low Maintenance

If you live a busy lifestyle, perhaps with an on-the-go family, your home could use a vinyl fence. Vinyl fencing is low maintenance and leaves you time to do the things you enjoy. It will look beautiful for years to come with just an occasional wash with soap and water. Additionally, you don’t have to worry about ugly rust stains or rotting wood. 

Non-Toxic Materials

Vinyl fences are made with the rock, salt, and gas combination that creates the vinyl. Some vinyl fencing additionally has an extra coating that extends the life of the fence or allows them to repel salt and water better. If you decide to replace your vinyl fence, you can often recycle the materials instead of sending them to the landfill. 


Vinyl fencing may cost more initially, but it is cost-effective in the long run. You won’t need to buy any extra paint or primer after installing your fence, and termites or other insects won’t harm your fence, which will save you repair costs. 

Can Handle Extreme Weather

No type of fencing is entirely weather-proof, but vinyl fencing can handle most extreme weather that the unpredictable climate of the D.C. area can throw at it. Vinyl fencing is durable, and it can withstand rainstorms as well. Vinyl fencing doesn’t rot and is approximately five times stronger than most wooden fence options. 

A Variety of Shapes and Styles

One of the most enjoyable benefits of choosing vinyl fencing is that you have many different shapes and styles from which to choose. Your home could use a vinyl fence to create a ranch-style or to add some elegance with a lattice design. Alternatively, you could install a traditional picket-fence style fence, or a tall privacy fence depending on your needs.
