Vinyl privacy fencing is one of the three basic styles of vinyl fencing. Solid panels form a barrier to provide maximum privacy, completely undesirable hiding views and keep pets from entering and leaving. This long-lasting fence is a suitable alternative to wood fencing options, which requires very little maintenance to maintain its appearance for the life of the fence.
Privacy vinyl fencing is usually sold in panels up to 8 feet high and wide. Although some manufacturers offer vinyl fencing in a variety of colors, such as fire clay, gray and almond, white is available in most companies. The panels are available in a wide range of styles that mimic those available for wooden fences. Some incorporate details such as lattice accents at the top, curves caps, wood texture and Victorian accents, to name a few.
Fencing vinyl costs up to 3 times more than the wooden options at the beginning, but the price difference contracts during the life of the fence. By comparing the maintenance required to protect and preserve a wooden fence, including materials and labor, PVC is more profitable in the long term. Factor in the cost of replacing rotten or broken wood cards, and cost savings increase, while saving in the time needed to make repairs.
