Why We Use Vinyl

A new fence is a significant investment which is why you don’t want to settle for a fencing solution that requires more work than it’s worth. Even though wood fences have been the go-to choice for privacy fences, the tide is turning, thanks to a sturdier, affordable, and longer-lasting option: vinyl fences.

As a company, Northland Fence made the switch to primarily use vinyl for privacy fencing solutions, and we want to share all of the wonderful benefits it has to offer with our customers. So, say goodbye to easily-weathered wood fences, and say hello to a durable, long-lasting vinyl fence for your property.

Vinyl Vs. Wood Fences

Wood fences have been the traditional solution for providing privacy, security, and aesthetic appeal. However, wooden fences come with extensive maintenance needs to fend off the elements. While we did provide beautiful wood fences for our customers, many people grew tired of the time and effort required in upkeep measures.

After a while, we made the executive decision to switch to vinyl fences to provide a better, longer-lasting, and low-maintenance fencing solution for our customers.

Vinyl fences are made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) plastic resin combined with other ingredients to create the ideal weather-resistant and durable fence you desire. Unlike wood which is susceptible to warping, rot, and fading, vinyl retains its color and form while being maintenance-free. As a result, even though vinyl has a higher initial cost, it is more cost-effective over time since it doesn’t need to be resealed and repainted every year the way wood does.

The only downside for some is that vinyl fences cannot be repainted a different color. So, it’s crucial to consider your home’s overall aesthetic before installation to ensure you can adequately color-match your vinyl fence. Use the online fence design tool on our website to help you design the perfect perimeter for your home.

Due to it’s plastic properties, vinyl is significantly less likely to experience fence post failure, so you don’t need to worry about making costly repairs.

Creating a strong, beautiful fence is a major decision, and the last thing you want is consistent maintenance year after year. While wood fences need to be resealed and repainted every year, vinyl doesn’t. Cleaning vinyl fences is also easier, thanks to its nonporous texture.

Furthermore, you don’t need to worry about the sun weathering away the color and texture.  Sip your summer drinks with confidence, knowing that come rain or shine, your new fence will stand the test of time.

When you choose a vinyl fence from Northland Fence, you get a high-quality fence that provides added privacy to your home or property.

Add a gate or other accessories to access your space easily, and set modifications for extra security. Also, added safety is possible because vinyl is harder for would-be intruders to climb due to its smooth surface.

If you’re planning on selling your home within the next decade, a new vinyl fence will add a greater resale value because it retains its value. Simply select your preferred color of white, tan, or two-tone to match your home perfectly.

Vinyl is also great for any property since it can be easily customized. Choose between a white picket fence or privacy fence and grab the attention of all your neighbors for years to come.

Easy to Repair

Even though vinyl is an incredibly durable fencing material, it is still susceptible to some damage throughout its lifetime. Thankfully, the process is relatively simple when it comes to repairing your fence since each section is easily replaceable. If you notice small holes or slats, it’s essential to remove faulty parts and pieces to avoid existing damage becoming more extensive. Due to its innovative design, you can easily repair vinyl fence pieces with only a few tools, including a chisel, hammer, and a Phillips head power drill.
