If you search the word “vinyl” in Google, you don’t exactly find any fence results. Why? Because back in the day, vinyl was used a lot for producing musical records. These large vinyl discs were used to play beautiful music on turntables or record players back before CDs were a thing. And while vinyl is now used for many other things besides musical records, vinyl fencing still isn’t exactly what springs to people’s minds when they think of fence installation. That said, we had to dedicate a page to it. There are so many reasons why it’s a great material that we’ll get into further down on this page, it just had to be here. If you’ve ever had a great vinyl fence installed, you’ll know what we mean.
So What is Vinyl Fencing?
Vinyl, also known as Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC, is a synthetic plastic polymer with some pretty great properties. PVC is used primarily in the construction industry, where it’s estimated between 70% and 75% of all PVC is deployed. The reason why it’s so prevalent in the construction world, and that includes fence building, is partially because it’s extremely strong--experts say about five times stronger than wood--and because it’s not biodegradable. This means it’s impervious to common fence issues like rot, bugs, insects, rust, and so on. This doesn’t make it better than a well built wood fence or a quality chain link fence, it just means it has certain advantages. It’s also flexible and more durable than wood, and due to its resistance to the harmful effects of moisture, it requires less maintenance than a standard wood fence.
Your Vinyl Fence Depends on Your Needs
There are a multitude of different forms of PVC fences available depending on your desires, requirements, and budget. Vinyl fences have the potential to have better longevity than many other fence materials like wood or chain link, especially in harsh weather or very humid environments. Here in Paterson, NJ, we get snow, ice, wind, rain, and so on, and that makes vinyl a pretty great choice depending on what you need it for.
