Easy Care & Durable Vinyl Fencing
With their easy maintenance and longevity, vinyl fences are highly recommended and are becoming an increasingly popular substitute for chain link and wood fence solutions. Vinyl fences offer great security, a beautiful design and an affordable cost. Many homeowners in Fort Worth choose vinyl for their new fence because it is nearly five times stronger than wood. You can expect a vinyl fence to last a long time with low maintenance! They do not decompose and are virtually rust free making them ideal for garden beds.
PVC Fencing is Ultraviolet Resistant
The manufacturing process for vinyl fencing varies for different brands, but all are made of high-tech polyvinyl compounds (PVC) that stand up to wear and tear better than most other fence materials. Early forms were essentially PVC piping flattened and extruded to look like lumber. Although the product was durable, PVC would degrade and turn yellow after a short time in the sun. Today’s manufacturers add titanium oxide to the outer layers of the fence posts for better UV resistance.
Flexibility and Tensile Strength
Thanks to a better manufacturing process used today, you can expect your new PVC fence to have five times the tensile strength of wood. PVC is also four times more flexible than wood, meaning it’s very difficult to stretch or tear apart making it a great privacy fence. They are further impervious to many other problems commonly associated with wood fencing, including rot, splintering, and termites.
Lifetime Warranty on Vinyl Fencing
Fence manufacturers are so confident in the durability of PVC, that each one is backed by a lifetime, limited warranty. A warranty can come in handy as a bargaining chip or as extra incentive when showing your DFW home to potential buyers, should the day ever come when you decide to sell.
Great Looks for Your Texas Home
Speaking of design, white PVC fences can also appear to look like painted wood making them a great option for a privacy fence. It can also be difficult to tell any difference between vinyl and composite fencing. Besides the similarity, composite fencing is made from recycled plastics and wood pieces.
Like any plastic, PVC fences can be formed into any shape imaginable making them easier to install than composite because the panels notch together—no nails or screws needed!
Plus, vinyl fences come in an array of colors and patterns that mimic other privacy fence types.
A few tips to maximize the life of your new PVC fence or gate:
- Adjust the vinyl gate every Spring: re-tamp and realign loose posts, oil the gate hinges, and tighten the screws once a year.
- Do not let the gate swing in the wind. Keep it secured.
- Do not stack or mount any objects or other materials near your fence.
- Avoid using a weed trimmer at the base of the fence.

— Homeowner in Kennedale, TXI called and set up an appointment for a free estimate. Andrew came out very quickly and gave me estimates for a couple options. My gate was in bad shape, and I really just wanted the fence facing the street replaced. Andrew was straightforward with the costs for a cedar fence, vinyl fence, and conc. curb. I ended up with the cedar fence, steel posts, and concrete curb. I bought an Angie's list deal to help offset the costs. The quality of work is great, better than the last fencing contractor I used. It looks like a very robust fence. I only wish I could afford to have them replace all of my fence. Great job, and when I’m ready for more fence replacement, I’ll be calling Buzz. Communication was good, scheduling was prompt, and quality was great.
