4 Helpful Hints for Vinyl Fence Maintenance

4 Helpful Hints for Vinyl Fence Maintenance

Vinyl fencing is known for its durability and low maintenance.

The key to any safe and secure home is a quality fence surrounding your property. A very popular fencing choice that we at Eastern Shore Porch and Patio provide to our customers would be vinyl fencing, otherwise known as plastic or PVC fencing. A vinyl fence is weather-resistant, and with proper care and attention, it will not crack, rot, or mold. Vinyl fencing is known for its durability and low maintenance, which makes it a natural choice for many new homeowners on a budget. You can also customize your vinyl fence to be whatever size or color you’d like. Keeping all of this in mind, there are a few things that you should check up on to ensure that your vinyl fence is kept in good shape for many years to come. These four helpful hints will keep your vinyl fence looking brand new!

Check its Stability

At least once or twice a year, take the time to walk down your fence line to check up on each post to make sure that it’s still sturdy. Heavy rain, snow, and freezing conditions can cause your vinyl fence posts to become significantly looser over time. If you happen to find a weak post, just use a shovel to pack dirt around its base.

Fence Caps

Also, due to weather issues such as freezing or thawing, vinyl fence post caps can also come loose. To keep up the beauty of your vinyl fence, use plastic fencing glue to secure the caps back in their spots. This is an easy fix and will keep your vinyl fence together all in one piece.

Cleaning Up Your Vinyl Fence

To maintain the sharp appearance of your vinyl fence, be sure to clean it regularly. Use a gentle household cleaner diluted with water and a sponge to wipe off any dirt, grime, or plant growth such as algae or other stains. Rinse the fence with a hose to be sure you did not miss any spots!

Rely on Professionals and Quality Tools for Repairs

If there is a situation where extreme weather or any other accidents cause your fence to break apart, be sure only to use the best tools when fixing up your vinyl fence. Not all products are created with the same quality of materials or attention to detail, so contact a professional to come out to your home to give a helping hand rather than relying on some random parts from a home improvement store for a proper vinyl fence repair.
