As you can see, because vinyl fence is plastic, there's practically no wear and tear to be concerned about, and vinyl is not really affected by the weather at all. So, while you will generally pay a little more for a vinyl product, it actually costs less in the long run.
One great advantage of vinyl is that the exterior color of the material is the ONLY color - there's no painting required! So a vinyl fence never loses it's initial visual impact. ...And vinyl fence offers every bit as much variety in designs and styles as you can get in wood fence, with fresh new designs coming available with each new season...from ornamental, picket, or privacy vinyl fencing there is every type to fit your personality.
