If you’re looking for a sturdy, low-maintenance fence for your home or business, consider vinyl. Although the manufacturing process varies slightly for different manufacturers, all vinyl fences are made of high-tech polyvinyl compounds that stand up to wear and tear better than most other fence materials. For more specifics, read this short article to learn about the durability of a new vinyl fence.
Early forms of vinyl fencing were essential PVC pipe flattened and extruded to look like lumber. Although the product was durable, the polyvinyl chloride would degrade and turn yellow after a short time in the sun. Titanium oxide was added to the mixture to give the vinyl UV resistance. Today’s vinyl fence manufacturers add titanium oxide only to the outer layers of the fencing where it does the most good while also reducing costs.
Flexibility and Tensile Strength
Thanks to the high-tech polyvinyl compounds used in today’s vinyl fencing, you can expect your new vinyl fence to have five times the tensile strength of wood. Vinyl is also four times more flexible than wood, meaning it’s very difficult to stretch or tear apart. Vinyl fences are impervious to many other problems commonly associated with wood fencing, including rot, splintering, and termites.
Vinyl fence manufacturers are so confident in the durability of their fences that each one if backed by the manufacturer with a lifetime, limited warranty. A lifetime warranty can come in handy as a bargaining chip or as extra incentive when showing your home to potential buyers, should the day ever come when you decide to sell.

In most Texas municipalities, it is only legal to have a swimming pool on your property if the pool is enclosed by a barrier fence. Adhering to the law is one reason to build a swimming pool safety fence on your property, but it is also a matter of protecting your household and young children living in the vicinity.
Swimming pools are a great source of enjoyment and pose few dangers when properly enclosed and used safely, but they are also the site of a number of deadly accidents every year. By installing a high fence with no gaps large enough for small children and pets to squeeze through and self-latching gates, you can have the peace of mind that come with knowing you are doing your best to promote safe swimming pool enclosure practices.

A backyard fence can enhance the appearance of your home, boosting its curb appeal and making your yard a more enjoyable place to spend time. If you want to install a new fence in your back yard but have not yet given thought to the type and style of fence or the purposes you want it to serve, consider the factors below to zero in on the perfect fencing style and materials for your home.
Identifying the purpose you want your fence to serve can help you determine what size, design, and material your fence should be. For instance, privacy and security fences are usually fairly high and have little or no gaps between panels. Fences designed to keep curious dogs from escaping should be high enough to keep canines from jumping over, and may also need to extend several inches underground to keep dogs from digging their way beneath them.
Expensive fences can be really nice, but a fence does not have to cost a fortune in order to fulfil its purpose and stand the test of time. Decide how much money you can spend on your fence, and speak with a fencing expert to find out what materials and stylistic features work within your budget.
Building Codes and Permits
Before you make a final decision on a backyard fence, check local building codes and homeowners’ association regulations by which you may be bound. Pay close attention to restrictions on fence height, color, and other characteristics to ensure that you do not have to tear down your new fence.
