PVC fence — also known as vinyl fence — is manufactured from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a thermoplastic resin that’s combined with micro-ingredients to give PVC fence its distinctive color, texture, impact resistance, flexibility and durability. PVC fence is an excellent, low-maintenance alternative to wood fencing. Wood fences must be treated, painted or stained on a regular basis; in fact, the average wood fence owner can expect to spend time and money painting or staining every few years to maintain the fence’s appearance and to protect the wood from weathering. Wood that is exposed to the elements will eventually rot over time, resulting in a less stable fence with a shorter life span. Virtually maintenance free PVC fence requires far less maintenance than a wood fence. Vinyl won’t warp, rot, splinter, peel or blister like wood, and it never needs sanding, staining or painting. All it needs is an occasional washing with a garden hose to keep it looking its best. Greater strength and flexibility PVC fence is up to five times stronger and four times more flexible than wood fencing, allowing it to absorb the impact from everyday run-ins with lawn mowers and tree limbs. our fence products feature a steel reinforced bottom rail for a stronger, more rigid fence, which reduces the chances of sagging or bowing. Concealed fastenersPVC fence systems feature concealed fasteners for a sleek, clean finish. Wood fencing is installed with unsightly nails, which, when exposed to the elements, will weather, come loose and cause the fence to deteriorate over time. Loose nails are also a safety issue.
