What Is Vinyl Fencing?

Vinyl fencing is made of synthetic plastic material instead of your traditional wood or iron fence. The plastic used can be PVC, nylon, polyethylene, or a combination of various plastics, depending on how strong you want the fence to be.

Modern vinyl fencing can be made to look high-end and can complement the look of any home. It’s also incredibly durable and won’t rot or splinter like wood privacy fences.

What Is Vinyl Fencing Used For? 

Vinyl fencing began in the agricultural industry as a way to contain animals like horses. It was even used to line horse racing tracks as it wouldn’t injure horses if they accidentally ran full speed into it. 

Today vinyl fencing can be used just about anywhere and has become a common choice for privacy fencing around residential homes. It can come in many colors and styles, and is very easy to maintain.
