Vinyl fencing is one of the most popular fencing materials that we install in New Jersey. But before we get into why it is so popular, let’s take a quick look at what vinyl fences are made of.
Vinyl, also known as PVC, is a type of plastic that has been treated so that it hardens hundreds of times more than regular plastic. This is done through a tedious process at the manufacturing plant. Although a lot of chemicals are involved in the making of your vinyl fence, do not fret, all of the fences we install are 100% safe for your lawn, garden, pets, etc.
Since vinyl is made from a hardened plastic, it has the qualities of metal (strength and durability), without the downsides (weather erosion). This has made vinyl one of the fastest growing fence styles in the past 50 years. In short, vinyl fences can really take a beating. We have personally seen these fences hold up in severe rain, wind, floods, hurricanes, and more. If you’re looking for an all-around great fence, this might be the one you are looking for.
Vinyl fences come in different styles. Below are a few popular ones…
- Privacy – This style involves installing a 6 to 7 foot fence which acts as a border/blocker from prying eyes.
- Picket – If you’re looking for a more traditional or classic fence, this is a great option. It borders your property while still offering a good amount of protection.
- Custom – If you are looking for a custom style, we can help. Let us know and we’d be glad to create it for you!
Now that you know a bit about vinyl fences, let’s look at what types of homes and property they work well on.
Being both durable and flexible when it comes to styles, vinyl fencing can be used on a wide variety of homes and properties. An obvious choice would be to install a vinyl picket fence on a property holding a traditional home. Many homeowners choose this option because wood fences are less durable and prone to damage easier (from many factors – water, wind, etc). It provides a modern twist on a classic looking fence.
Many business owners choose to have a vinyl privacy fence installed to border their property and for liability reasons. Vinyl privacy fences are a great way to ensure privacy and safety, while still having an aesthetically pleasing border around their property.
What fence customers love about vinyl is the fact that they are virtually maintenance free. With other fences you have to constantly upkeep them. With wood, that involves repainting. However, vinyl, being plastic, doesn’t need to be repainted and if it should ever get damaged, it is very easy (and cheap) to replace a part.
