Consider These Pros And Cons Of PVC Vinyl Fences

Here is a short rundown of the pros and cons of PVC vinyl fences.

Choosing the right commercial fence involves a balance of quality, aesthetic, and durability. So you might be wondering if a PVC vinyl fence will fit the bill for your property. All fencing materials have their benefits and drawbacks. Here is a short rundown of the pros and cons of PVC vinyl fences.

The Pros

First, PVC vinyl fencing is an easy-to install material because it is lightweight. But it can also be strong, thanks to some recent developments that incorporate aluminum inside of some types of PVC vinyl fences for added strength. PVC vinyl is also incredibly low maintenance because it is waterproof and therefore note affected by mold or rust. Because of the material, PVC vinyl is also  not likely to be chewed on by incests or animals. All of these combine to give PVC vinyl fencing an long lifespan. In addition it is very easy to customize PVC vinyl fencing to fit any color and style you would like, which makes it a popular choice for aesthetics.


Although PVC vinyl fences can be reinforced, they won’t be as strong as more popular security fence choices, like chain link. Especially if you are looking for a high security fence, you should consider a different material. Most PVC vinyl fences are assembled by interlocking pieces rather than using screws or nails. While this makes for an easy assembly it can also make it easier to break through a PVC vinyl fence. Another drawback of PVC vinyl as a fencing material is that it is more sensitive to extreme temperatures, and will weaken in high heat or cold. Lastly, PVC vinyl fences tend to fade in color over time because of sun exposure.
