Why Vinyl is a Popular Choice for Fencing

There was a time when people only had a choice between wood or wrought iron for their fencing needs. Times have changed and vinyl, also known as PVC, has become one of the most highly sought fencing materials for multiple reasons.


Vinyl fencing is available in multiple styles, colors, heights, and with multiple customization options to reflect an individual’s personal style. It can be manufactured to imitate the look of stone or wood, allowing individuals to enjoy the benefits of vinyl and the appearance of high-end materials.

Longevity & Durability

Vinyl fencing is manufactured from high-quality synthetic materials or recycled plastics. A vinyl fence can last from 20 to 30 years and provides a great return on investment. The surface is resistant to scratching, insect predations, fungi, and dry rot. Vinyl maintains its structural integrity even in Florida’s subtropical climate and isn’t susceptible to cracking, warping or fading from UV rays. It’s 5 times stronger than wood and has the ability to flex slightly, making it resistant to wind damage.

Little Maintenance

No one wants to spend copious amounts of their leisure time caring for a fence. That makes vinyl doubly popular as it requires little to no maintenance. It doesn’t require painting, staining or other treatments. Vinyl is a non-porous material and doesn’t absorb moisture from rain or humidity. That attribute makes it easy to clean – just spray it down with a hose to keep it looking good.


One of the unique attributes of vinyl is that it doesn’t burn easily. Firepits can malfunction and fires from BBQs can occur. Vinyl tends to self-extinguish making it one of the safest options available.


More attention is being paid to recyclable options. For those seeking an eco-friendly fencing solution, look no further than vinyl. Most vinyl fencing is 100 percent recyclable and the material emits few VOCs.
