Top Benefits of Vinyl Fencing

Do you have an existing fence that didn’t fare winter well or an unfenced yard you’re planning to convert to a private space? Whatever the reason, spring being just around the corner means it’s the perfect time to build that fence you’ve been thinking about.

When it comes to fencing, there are several options to select from. Vinyl is a popular material choice for homeowners who are looking for a durable, low-maintenance fence, and it has many advantages over wood, iron, and chain link. It also comes in a wide variety of designs and colors — from pasture to lattice top, so there’s a vinyl fence style for everyone.

Rick’s vinyl fencing is co-extruded to maximize its strength, durability, and UV resistance. What does this mean for you? Vinyl fencing has 5x the strength of wood and 4x the flexibility. Even better, our vinyl fences are backed by a limited, lifetime warranty that is transferable to the next home owner if you were to sell your home, so you can buy knowing your investment is protected.

Here are just a few of the benefits of choosing vinyl fencing for your home:

Vinyl can withstand harsh weather conditions

One of the main advantages of vinyl fencing is its longevity. Vinyl is heavy-duty and weather-resistant — perfect for the Pacific Northwest’s high winds and heavy rain. It’s also resistant to corrosion, fading, and discoloration, so it’s unlikely to warp or fade over time and will look great for years to come.

A vinyl fence requires little to no maintenance

Unlike wood fencing, vinyl fencing is a very low-maintenance option. It doesn’t require regular painting or staining and is resistant to pests. Vinyl is excellent at retaining its color, even on those hot and sunny days. Pro tip: To keep your vinyl fence looking great, you’ll only need to occasionally hose it down or use a mild detergent. For tough stains, Soft Scrub or baking soda work well, as do Simple Green and 0000 steel wool.

Vinyl fencing is a cost-effective option

Although vinyl fencing is initially more expensive than wood or chain link to install, its durability and lower maintenance needs mean you’ll save big in the long run. The cost of staining a wood fence every three years can be as much as $500 in materials and many hours of labor!

Is a vinyl fence graffiti proof?

Although it’s not classified as “graffiti proof,” vinyl fencing is easy to clean and most paint can be removed with little effort. In the rare event a stain or paint is stubborn, the individual parts and pieces of your fence can be replaced as needed rather than having to buy an entire new section of fencing.

There are a wide variety of vinyl fence styles to choose from

Vinyl fencing is available in a wide variety of styles and colors, so it’s easy to choose a look that fits your home and your personal style. Whether you’re looking for something traditional or a more modern, sleek design, there’s a vinyl fencing option that will work for you.

Vinyl lattice top fencing adds beauty and curb appeal

Looking for a decorative accent around the perimeter of your home? Consider installing vinyl lattice top fencing — a favorite among homeowners who want to maintain privacy while projecting sophistication.

The main advantage of lattice top fencing is the aesthetic value it brings to any yard or property line. It’s as durable as a solid privacy fence as well because the lattice top locks directly into the post for added strength. Choose among white and sand finishes and 4’, 5’, and 6’ heights. You can also combine the lattice with a Semi-Privacy fence for a little more wind movement and open air.

Enjoy lasting durability with vinyl pasture rail fencing

Whether you call it a split-rail fence, a field fence, a cattle fence (or something else!), a vinyl pasture rail fence offers a tranquil style to make your house feel like a home. This is a great, low-maintenance utility fence with a classic ranch style that is impact-resistant.

And while it’s aesthetically beautiful and long-lasting, vinyl pasture rail fencing is also a popular choice for containing cattle, horses, sheep, goats, and other livestock within your property’s boundary. Our pasture rail fencing is available in white, sand, walnut, and black finishes, and in 2-rail, 3-rail, and 4-rail configurations. Accessories are available for adding electricity to the inside of the fence for extra livestock protection. Ask your estimator!

Vinyl picket fencing is a timeless choice

Classic and minimal, vinyl picket fencing offers a timeless look without the arduous task of having to paint or stain individual pickets each year. It’s an easy and affordable way to enhance the boundary of your yard and also makes a great enclosure for small gardens and entry paths. Vinyl picket fencing is an inviting look that creates an approachable charm for any home.

We offer traditional and scalloped vinyl fence picket options, in white and sand finishes, and at variable heights. Choose from 3’, 42”, or 4’ tall, and consider adding post cap accents for a unique flair.

For the ultimate in security, install a vinyl privacy fence

If you’re looking to create a private outdoor space, our vinyl privacy fencing may be the right choice for you. This solid-style fence is one of the most traditional and popular styles nationwide due to its strength and durability.

With no gaps between panes, vinyl privacy fencing can help your yard feel like an oasis by blocking out street sights and sounds. It’s also a popular choice for child safety and pool enclosures. We offer four different color options — white, sand, driftwood, and dark walnut — and you can choose between 4’, 5’, and 6’ heights.

Consider vinyl semi-privacy fencing for seclusion with a view

Finding a fence that provides privacy while complimenting a yard’s appearance can sometimes be a challenge. That’s where a semi-privacy fence comes in — perfect for supporting home security without compromising the view of your yard.

Vinyl semi-privacy fencing features fence boards set into a rail with a fixed gap between each panel. This allows air to flow while granting partial visibility. This is a great choice for front yards or areas where high winds are an issue and is available in white and sand finishes, and 4’, 5’, and 6’ heights.
