Learn about the many benefits of PVC vinyl fencing!

PVC fencing, also known as vinyl, is made of a plastic-based material and a very durable fencing option. Residential vinyl fences have become very popular in the last few years, as it gives a beautiful and clean appearance to any property, lasts a very long time, and requires minimal maintenance. Continue reading to learn more about PVC vinyl fencing and why it may be the best choice for your new fence!

What PVC Means

PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride and is a type of vinyl. The material is one of the most popular construction materials on the market, as it is so affordable and easy to work with. Although vinyl and PVC are technically different materials, PVC is the only type of vinyl used when installing a fence- so it is simply called vinyl fencing.


A PVC vinyl fence is a perfect choice for any homeowner because it lasts a long time, even when faced with rough elements, and is extremely durable. PVC fences are produced through a co-extrusion process to promote rigidity and strength. The material won’t rot, warp, contract, or splinter, so you don’t need to worry about ever having to make repairs.

Low Maintenance

If you have enough on your plate and don’t want to worry about cleaning your fence, a PVC vinyl fence is your best option. It never has to be painted, stained, or sealed, and if it gets any dirt or residue on it, you can easily remove it with a hose or a rag. With so many other household chores and landscape maintenance to keep track of, a vinyl fence makes it easy to have a beautiful fence without the hard work!

Easy Installation

PVC vinyl fencing is also very easy to install, as it comes in ready-to-install panels. The material is offered in a wide range of colors and styles, so you can easily find something that fits your personality and matches your home. You can choose from privacy vinyl fences that are six-feet high or a classic picket fence that adds charm to your property.
