When it comes to fencing in your yard or business, there are plenty of options from which you can choose these days. However, for many home and business owners, a vinyl or PVC fence is the best and most obvious choice because of its many amazing benefits. If you are not already familiar with vinyl fences, you may initially think that they will appear cheap or weak. However, today’s vinyl fences are incredibly durable while also having improved in affordability, versatility and customization options over the years. In fact, a quick look at the many benefits of choosing a vinyl or PVC fence will help you know whether this is the right option for you.
First, consider just how strong vinyl fences are. Unlike the cheap plastic toys your children may receive for Christmas, the vinyl used in PVC fences is far sturdier and more durable. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that vinyl fences are approximately five times sturdier than wood. This means that your fence can easily last for decades. On the other hand, vinyl still remains incredibly flexible and stands up well in wind and other inclement weather. This strength ensures that your PVC fence will be an adequate barrier against animals and intruders who may want to enter your yard and an excellent option to place around in-ground pools and other high danger zones.
Second, remember that while a vinyl fence may not be the cheapest fencing option, it may just be one of the best investments you can make for your yard. Simple barbed wire fences and even some types of pressure-treated pine fences will cost less than a vinyl fence will. However, because a vinyl fence lasts for so many years, it will more than pay for itself in the end. In fact, as long as you provide your fence with just a bit of very minimal maintenance over the years, you may be able to preserve it for your entire lifespan. Some vinyl fences have been known to last up to 100 years thanks to the titanium dioxide that is now added to most PVC fence materials. This makes it an environmentally friendly choice as well because you will not need to be replacing your fence constantly.
Third, it does not take long for professionals from Reliable Fence to install your new vinyl fence. Most vinyl fences are sold in panels that can be easily put into place once the vertical posts are firmly installed in the ground. Simple locking mechanisms ensure that panels click easily into place. In most cases, our professionals from Reliable Fence can get a backyard fence installed in as little as one day although larger projects may take more time.
Finally, today’s vinyl fences are aesthetically beautiful and can fit in with nearly any surroundings thanks to their high customization level. One of the most popular options for vinyl fences is the privacy fence, which is a solid fencing option designed to keep prying eyes from seeing your yard or business. However, PVC fences come in nearly as many options as other types of fences do. Whether you are looking for an open and homey look or a semi-private look for a suburban setting, vinyl fencing can do it all. Reliable Fence professionals can help you choose the best look to match with your home or business and to meet your outdoor goals.
A PVC fence is among the fastest types of fences to install. A professional from Reliable Fence will begin by measuring the yard or space to be enclosed. We can then easily estimate the amount of materials we will need and provide you with an estimate for materials and labor.
On installation day, we will start by marking the area to be enclosed, carefully measuring to ensure that posts are the proper distance apart. We will dig the post holes and place the corner and end posts first to ensure a perfectly completed project. Then we will place the line posts. As we place the posts, we measure them so that they are level and secure them into the ground with concrete. Each post must be set at the same height to create an even look although this may change if your yard is hilly. Finally we will assemble the panels or custom fence work, slipping pickets or panels into rails and snapping them into place.
Of course, even though vinyl fencing is one of the easiest types to install, it is always best to work with professionals who can make sure that it is installed correctly the first time. Reliable Fence has the correct tools and the years of experience necessary to ensure that your fence continues standing strong and tall for decades to come. We do all of our work with an emphasis on your and our safety. Plus, we get all of the materials to the site on time and thoroughly clean up after ourselves.
Vinyl fences are always lauded for their easy-to-maintain appearance. As mentioned, you will find that you do not have to take much time with vinyl to keep it looking its best over the years. Most of the time, your garden hose and perhaps some mild soap and a sponge will be all that you need to clean your fence every few years. You will never have to worry about painting it or staining it.
Vinyl fences come in a dizzying array of styles, most of which can be tweaked to match your yard and the architecture of your home and business. A quick look at some of the most popular styles will help you get started as you make your choice. You can also chat with a representative from Reliable Fence for personalized help related to your needs and concerns.
The solid privacy fence is among the most popular of choices for many suburban yards as well as certain businesses that want to keep prying eyes away. These solid panels are typically quite tall and impossible to be seen through. They can also be tweaked in several different ways, such as with a lattice or picket work top or with a decorative rail.
Another popular option is the semi-private PVC fence. This style features very wide slats that are placed close to each other but that still retain a small amount of spacing. Although people can see through these fences, the fence will protect you from the casual passerby.
The picket fence is popular among home or business owners who want to create a more open and welcoming look. Picket fences come in dozens of design choices, such as the picket fence with closed top, the French gothic picket, the dog ear picket or the scalloped picket.
Finally, the ranch rail or post and rail is often found around housing developments and shopping centers to create some property delineation although it can be used for a variety of other purposes. Originally used to keep animals in specific spots, the ranch rail fence still offers a casual look loved by many.
If you are not familiar with vinyl fences, you may assume that they only come in the single post and rail look that you have seen surrounding some housing communities in your neighborhood. However, PVC fences are just as diverse as their competitors are, coming in numerous traditional and modern styles to fit a wide range of environments.
Once you have chosen the overall look that works best for you, you will need to consider how you want to customize the style to mark it as truly your own. You will first need to consider the overall style you want, such as picket, post and rail or privacy fencing. Then you can choose from a variety of colors and finishes. Although the majority of PVC fences are white, you can actually find them in black, gray and many other colors.
Next, you can choose from numerous decorative accents that will set off your fence amazingly. For example, some homeowners like square latticework, which is often put on the top of fences. This can be a great way to create a more open look even if you are opting for a tall privacy face. You can also choose from toppers on posts or finials on picket fences to create a more colonial or gothic look.
Finally, you will need to choose the fence height that is best for you. If you mainly want to delineate property lines, a 4-foot fence will work well. However, a 6-foot fence may be ideal for increased privacy, especially around businesses. You can also find fences that measure 5, 7 or 8 feet tall depending on your needs.
Reliable Fence can help you decide whether a predesigned fence will be right for you or whether you should consider a customized look. Although it can take a bit more time to receive the materials for your fence if you opt for customization, you will most likely be far more pleased with the results than you would if you opted for a faster but less personalized look.
When it comes to choosing a fence for your home or business, you certainly have many options from which to choose. However, you will want to consider how vinyl fences compare to some of their main competitors, such as wood, wrought iron, aluminum and chain link fences.
While wood fences are more affordable initially, the vinyl fence’s increased cost pays off with nearly five times the lifespan of a typical wood fence. In addition, most people prefer vinyl fences because of their ease of maintenance. Unlike wood, they will never need to be stained or painted, and they will never rot or develop insect infestations.
Wrought iron fences are among the most expensive fences available today, making vinyl a far more affordable alternative. In addition, wrought iron fences may be beautiful, but they do not provide the same level of privacy that a PVC fence can. Your vinyl fence will never rust, nor will it need to be scraped and repainted every few years.
Similarly, an aluminum fence may not provide the amount of privacy that you need. Although aluminum is typically stronger than vinyl, you may not need this level of strength in most circumstances. Both vinyl and aluminum come out similarly in final costs and in maintenance times.
Finally, the humble chain link fence may be a great choice when it comes to protecting certain businesses, but it does not come with the high level of customization that vinyl does. With picket fences and post and rail fences providing a wide array of sturdy vinyl looks, chain link can never come close to vinyl’s amazing design aesthetics.
Vinyl fences are usually found directly in the middle of fencing cost tables, meaning that you can expect to spend an average amount of money on them. While wire fences and many types of wood fences may be cheaper, vinyl is far more affordable than wrought iron, composite and specialty hardwood fences.
A PVC fence usually costs approximately $20 to $30 per linear foot although highly customized looks will cost even more than this. With the average backyard measuring approximately 150 linear feet, materials may cost between $3,000 and $4,500. The national average currently stands at approximately $3,700. Installation costs may be charged separately and usually range from $35 to $50 per hour depending on the size and ease of the job. However, vinyl picket fences may cost less than privacy fences do because fewer materials are needed.
