Vinyl fencing performs well in all weather conditions. In colder temperatures it becomes more rigid and is easier to break; however, it can still take tremendous force to harm the fence. Most vinyl is finished with a protective coating that shields it from the sun in warmer weather.
Not all vinyl fencing is made in the same way. Each company has its own formula, mixture and molds. Some formulas create thinner pieces and produce compounds that do not perform well. When looking for a fence, research the company and look for customer satisfaction ratings; a warranty for the product in this industry does not guarantee it is a quality fence. High-quality vinyl fencing stands up to extremes in weather and holds up in windy conditions.
Vinyl fencing does not burn, fade, crack, peel or rot. Due to being exposed to the elements, it can develop mildew. However, if it is cleaned right away, stains do not develop. Dirt and other debris can be easily removed by spraying the fencing with a garden hose and wiping it down. The cost of vinyl fencing is higher than other options and if exposed to direct impact it can break, but the fence can be repaired easily and a quality vinyl fence can last for decades.
