Is a Vinyl Fence Right for Your Home?

Choosing a fence for your Central Texas home can be overwhelming. With so many options to choose from, and the pros and cons that come with each option, it can be difficult to know what fencing is right for you. In this blog post we will be focusing on one of our favorite fencing types: vinyl fences.

Vinyl fences are made of a high-quality PVC resin that is shaped and formed to create pickets. These pickets are placed next to each other, locked together and installed in your backyard accordingly, leaving no gaps. Vinyl fences are extremely durable and are weather and UV resistant. Is a vinyl fence right for your home? Find out below!

Environmentally Friendly

One of the more notable qualities of a vinyl fence is it’s eco-friendly. The premium PVC that our vinyl fences are composed of is non-toxic making it a safe choice for your family, pets and the earth. Vinyl fences are also recyclable, so you can rest assured that your fence materials can be reused in different forms once the fence is retired.

Most importantly, vinyl fences are not made with wood, so when you decide to purchase a vinyl fence, you’re not depleting one of our most finite natural resources.

Child Safe

With the toxin-free features we mentioned above, vinyl fences are clearly a safe choice for children. Additionally, the installation method of vinyl fences is unique and they are free from surface screws, nails, sharp edges and splinters that could potentially injure your children as they’re playing in the backyard. Vinyl fences are smooth to the touch, so you can let your children play around them without having to be on a constant watch.

Maintenance Free

Vinyl fences are one of the only fencing types that we can confidently say are maintenance free. Since they’re made with premium PVC, you won’t experience any rotting, corrosion or weathering like you might with natural materials. There is also no painting or staining involved with vinyl fences. They’re manufactured in a variety of colors and styles, so no further customization is involved after they’re installed.


Vinyl fences are very strong and sturdy. Once your fence is installed – that’s it! You can rest confidently knowing that they will stand the test of time and the elements. Vinyl fences are truly more durable than your standard wood fence because they’re manufactured with steel-reinforced bottom rails. Vinyl fences are also fastened with an interlocking design, so the concerns of rotting hardware you might have with wood fences, doesn’t apply to vinyl fences.
