The vinyl from which vinyl fences are made contains ultraviolet inhibitors that protect the material from the sun. As a result, vinyl doesn’t usually lose its color, requiring reapplication of paints and stains. Moreover, wear and tear is less an issue. Install a vinyl fence, and it will very likely look the same for years without anyone bothering with paint, stain and accessories.

Because vinyl is not organic, it’s impervious to invasions of insects and pests or rotting taking place as a result of moisture infiltration. And unlike metal, it will not rust. Vinyl is also strong. According to some manufacturers and sellers, vinyl has five times the tensile strength of wood, making it harder to break. It’s also more flexible than wood, and may be a preferred choice in high-wind areas where fence should be able to bend but not break.
