Fences offer you and your loved ones security and privacy. Plus, they can be strong design elements that define the exterior of a house’s appearance. It can be hard to install and maintain fences. Wooden fences can look beautiful but require a lot of maintenance. Some untreated timber such cedar may be left alone and turn silvery-gray and streaky, which is not something homeowners like. PVC Fencing Jeffrey’s bay While painted fences look neat and tidy, they can become more difficult to paint over time.

Vinyl fences are the answer. Vinyl fences can be attractive, durable, and low-maintenance. Vinyl fences can be left unpainted and treated because the vinyl is infused with their color. They keep their colors consistent from year to year, regardless of the season.

How to Build a Vinyl Fence

Vinyl fences are built on interlocking component systems. When you purchase a vinyl fence, make sure you have all of its components. Otherwise, you will not be able to build the fence as vinyl fences do not allow for improvisation.

Vinyl Picket Fences

PVC Fencing Port Elizabeth Vinyl picket fences have anchor pipes which are driven into place by a sledgehammer. Hollow posts can be used to cover the anchor pipes as sleeves. The section is made up of two anchor pipes, which can be used to build one fence panel: one rail at each end, one rail at top, and multiple pickets running through the rails.

Vinyl Privacy Fences

Taller, six-foot vinyl privacy fences’ posts must be anchored into the ground with concrete, like conventional four-by-four fence posts. These posts do not slide over an anchor pipe; they are sunk directly into the concrete. A fence panel is pre-built–a single piece, not separate pieces that must be assembled.

Codes and Regulations

A permit may be required before you build your fence. An inspector must inspect the site after the work is completed and close the permit. All work must conform to the local building codes. Look at legal issues such as easements and zoning. Your local permitting agency can give you advice on setback regulations and local zoning which affect fence construction.

When to Install Your Vinyl Fence

You will have difficulty digging the holes for a privacy fence or driving the anchor pipes to a picket fence if the ground is frozen. Wait until the ground has thawed before starting construction.
