Discover whether vinyl fencing is right for your property.

Choosing the right fencing material for your residential property is a big decision. You want to consider the affordability, durability, and appearance of the material and whether it is right for you. Read on to discover the different residential fencing materials available through Hercules Fence and which is best for your needs. 

PVC Vinyl

This fence is perfect for the “fence-care beginner.” The material is affordable, resilient, and requires very little maintenance. Because the material is waterproof, it is a perfect fencing option to place around a pool or hot-tub because any water that touches the fence will not warp or damage it. Vinyl privacy fences can also mimic the look of wood without any associated wood damage. UV inhibitors are added to the material to help the fence remain attractive for many years. 

Ornamental Aluminum 

Aluminum fences and their smaller slats are an excellent choice for pet owners or anyone who wants to keep any unwanted wildlife out of their yards. Aluminum fencing won’t rot like wood, but you need to upkeep the fence to avoid rust buildup or other weather-induced effects. Hercules Fence applies a unique powder coating process that ensures your aluminum fence will look great for years. We even offer a limited lifetime warranty!

Custom Wood 

Wooden fences are great for privacy options, and for when you want your fence to have a more natural or rustic look. Wood fences do require special care to avoid dry rot in the fence posts. You can help prevent rot by keeping your fence clean and raking away leaves and debris at the base of your fence posts. Hercules Fence offers a wide variety of wood fence options, with all lumber meeting or exceeding industry standards and EPA requirements. 

Ornamental Steel 

The steel fence is a modern interpretation of the traditional “wrought iron” fence. Like wrought iron fences, Hercules can provide custom welded panels if you have a particular design in mind. Like the aluminum fences, our steel fences also have a powder coating, which creates a durable, attractive finish. 


Vinyl coated chain link fences are increasing in popularity as a more attractive version of the high-security chain link fence. The vinyl-coated fencing comes with a polyvinyl or polyester coating on the wire, with the polyester forming a scratch-resistant finish. There are a few options for the vinyl wire: extruded, glued and bonded, or thermally-fused. This durable vinyl coating makes these fences especially beneficial for water-adjacent locations as it increases the wire’s resistance to rust. Galvanized chain-link fences increase the longevity of your fence, and is one of the most durable fence options available.
