What is PVC?

Benefits Of Plastic Fencing

A lot of people think PVC is a type of plastic fencing, but it’s not. There are actually three types: vinyl, fiberglass and polycarbonate. We want to discuss benefits of plastic fencing and here is how you can get this service for you.

PVC – Polyvinyl chloride or Poly-Vinyl Chloride (often abbreviated to PVC) is one of the most common plastics used in applications ranging from construction products, vehicle parts to chemical piping systems

The benefits of vinyl plastic fence is that it doesn’t rust like metal and stays in good condition for decades with minimal maintenance required. It also has excellent durability and weather resistance making it perfect for harsh climates such as coastal regions where salt air can be corrosive enough that metal will be eaten away in as little as two years.

The benefits of fiberglass fencing are that it is lightweight and easy to install, making it a good choice for people who need mobility with the fence or those who live on uneven terrain, such as hillsides. Fiberglass fences can be installed without adhesives, although they will last longer if you use them. They also have excellent durability and weather resistance making them perfect for harsh climates such as coastal regions where salt air can be corrosive enough that metal will be eaten away in as little as two years.

Polycarbonate plastic has many great qualities which make it a pretty popular option when choosing material type for your vinyl fence: It lasts long (upwards of 20-30 years), is quite lightweight and has excellent durability. Polycarbonate plastic, unlike vinyl or fiberglass fences, does not corrode when it comes in contact with salt water which is one of the main reasons why this type of PVC fence is so popular for coastal regions.
