Enhance your Home with Vinyl Fence & Rail
When looking to upgrade your outdoor space, you might forget to consider fence and railing. Whether privacy or picket, extremely detailed or clean and simple, there’s a fence and railing style that will help set the tone for your outdoor living space, front yard, stairs, deck or porch. Originally developed to be purely functional exterior elements, fence and railing serve to keep people and pets safe, define outdoor spaces, and enhance curb appeal and home value.
Define your exterior spaces with style
Fence and railing is a smart way to add a finishing touch to your home and property, be it an average-sized yard or rural acreage. Vinyl fence and railing comes in a variety of styles and colors, making it easy to find the perfect fit for your home’ style.
Color and texture
Vinyl fence and railing manufacturers often offer their styles in the most popular finishes, including shades of white, tan, black and a “hand-stained” wood aesthetic. Texture options range from cedar to smooth wood finishes, depending on the manufacturer. Learn more about selecting color.
It’s all in the details
Buying a new fence or vinyl railing for your home is an exciting opportunity to bring long-lasting beauty and value to your property, provide security and create privacy, without the time-consuming maintenance of traditional wood fences. Vinyl fence and railing has been engineered to withstand wind and elements when properly installed. Look for products where the texture and finish penetrate the material instead of simply sitting on the surface. This assures that eventual nicks from a weed eater or an impact with Johnny’s scooter won’t expose an unfinished surface.
Style and Privacy
There are several styles of vinyl fence on the market today. When selecting fencing, privacy is just as important as style. This spectrum ranges from solid privacy (high privacy) to picket (medium privacy) to ranch rail (least privacy), and can have a large impact on the openness of your yard. Also consider the architectural style of your home—Victorian homes work well with picket fencing, whereas ranch rail looks best on more traditional home styles.
A closer look at vinyl railing
Railing is a beautiful, hardworking necessity for any porch, deck or stairs. It’s functional and provides a necessary feature to keep people safe and manage traffic flow. Unlike wood, which requires constant upkeep and eventual replacement, vinyl railing will last a lifetime. Created to reflect the appearance and texture of real wood, vinyl railing is a smart investment that is impervious to rot, flaking, peeling and decay.
