A plastic-based material made from polyvinyl chloride, PVC is an economical and low-maintenance option. It works well for those looking for a practical yet aesthetically pleasing fence. PVC has a number of advantages that make it a popular fencing material with homeowners.
One of the biggest advantages of PVC fencing is that you can basically install it and forget it. Traditional wood fences are prone to warping and cracking. They will also rot over time, requiring constant maintenance. However, PVC will look great for many years without much attention. PVC never needs sanding, staining, or painting. It doesn’t scratch easily and is simple to clean. Being nonporous, any algae, mold or mildew that starts to grow on your PVC fence can be cleaned off with a pressure washer or even dish soap and a hose.
Due to its composition, PVC also won’t warp, rot, peel or blister. This makes it a safety-conscious choice for fencing material as well as low maintenance. If your fence will be located in an area that gets lots of human or animal contact, PVC reduces the chances of minor injuries or accidents.
PVC fencing comes in many styles and colors. Additionally, various accents and add-ons create an almost endless variety of looks. From tall privacy fences to more traditional post and picket, there’s a PVC fence to fit just about any architectural aesthetic. Some PVC fencing products, such as Bufftech, can also be textured to resemble natural materials like wood.
Unlike wood, PVC doesn’t require any pesticides or chemical preservatives to maintain it or extend its lifespan. Further, it won’t break down, releasing toxic chemicals into the soil and water. It’s also recyclable, making it a surprisingly environmentally-conscious choice for fencing.
The solid composition of PVC fencing panels means that there are no gaps. Therefore, it blocks visual access to nosy neighbors. It also helps deter small animals, snakes and other critters from trespassing where they’re not wanted.
Many PVC fencing products come with a limited lifetime warranty. This helps to protect you from unexpected future expenses should something go awry.
