When most people think of vinyl fences, they likely picture only one product. But in recent years, industry leading manufacturers have made great strides in producing a vast variety of vinyl fence styles and colors, all with the durability, cost effectiveness, and nearly maintenance-free benefits that homeowners have come to associate with high-quality vinyl. Just like the clothes you wear, the vinyl fence style and color you choose for your home reflects your personality, so be sure to entertain all your options before making a decision.
Whether as HOAs or ranchers and farmers, most of us pick out fences based on how their appearance and functionality suit our own needs. In residential areas, we consider which fence will add the most curb appeal, require the least amount of maintenance, add the most visual and acoustic privacy, and give our children and pets a safe place to play. In rural areas where we keep our own livestock, we think about which fences will be cost effective yet strong to contain our animals, exclude wildlife, prevent trespassing, protect gardens and crops, and mark property boundaries.

Because of this, you’ll want to partner with a fencing contractor who has a well-established reputation and ample experience with large-scale safety fencing installation.
