Considering a Fence

To fence, or not to fence? That is the question…but certainly not the only one. 

What type of fence do you need? What material is best? Is one style better suited to meet your needs than another? Will the fence require much maintenance?

Fences protect us, our families, and our pets. They provide safety, security, and enhance our outdoor living space. They may even be used to cut down on road noise or the sight of a neighbor’s property that isn’t very appealing. Fences can add style and enhance the beauty of your home and property.

While there are many different styles and materials available, many homeowners find that vinyl fence is the best choice to meet their needs.

Vinyl is a popular choice for traditional fencing needs.  While the initial expense of a vinyl fence may be higher than that of wood or chain link, the fence will prove itself over the years through its durability. 

Vinyl can withstand harsh winters, extreme cold temperatures, wind, hail, and excessive summer heat. Vinyl fence is very durable and requires minimal maintenance.

A vinyl fence can be used on both residential and commercial properties.  No staining, sanding or painting is needed. This helps to cut down on any long-term costs that are usually associated with having a fence. Vinyl does not rot or corrode, and will last for many years. The most upkeep a vinyl fence will need is an occasional washing with a garden hose or power washer, usually no more than once a year.

Vinyl fence can also help to cut down on noise.  This type of fence can absorb and hold sound, rather than vibrate like other types of fence materials. While a vinyl fence will not completely block the noise of a car or a lawnmower, it will significantly reduce and help to tone down the offending noise.

If a property is near a high traffic area, vinyl fence will help reduce noise from cars, trucks, and construction.  For this reason, vinyl fence is becoming even more popular among homeowners and businesses whose properties border construction zones.

Vinyl fence offers great privacy for outdoor spaces.  Vinyl fence won’t bend, splinter or gap, like other types of materials, maintaining a private and secure space to enjoy time outdoors with family and friends.
