Vinyl fencing requires no maintenance whatsoever.
First introduced in the 1980s, vinyl fencing lasts much longer than wood, requires virtually no maintenance, and won’t be destroyed by wood’s archenemies (termites, fungus, dry rot, and fire). However, vinyl is somewhat more expensive than wood. With its lengthy life, lack of maintenance, formidable strength, and beautifully versatile appearance, vinyl should be your preferred choice for fencing. Although it is more expensive upfront, it provides a better return on investment and won’t require regular (and costly) maintenance like wood fencing. If you want your fence to remain pristine and beautiful, choose vinyl. You will not have to worry about chipping paint, fading stain treatments, termites, or weathering. Vinyl is also available in a variety of colors and styles, some of which even mimic real wood.
