New English Flat PVC Fencing
If you love that classic white wooden picket fence look but are hesitant due to the high-maintenance nature of timber, our New England flat PVC picket fencing is a great alternative. It ticks all the boxes: it’s aesthetically pleasing, durable and requires little maintenance. This flat-top style works well as a boundary fence or a landscaping feature to divide spaces within your garden.
The Benefits of PVC Picket Fencing
There’s nothing quite like the look and feel of a New England picket fence. However, this timeless style has often been achieved with painted timber, which is prone to rot and termite damage and requires regular re-painting. The alternative? Durable, low-maintenance PVC. Here are some reasons why it’s worth considering PVC for your picket fence.
Rot and termite resistant.
Unlike wood, PVC isn’t susceptible to damage from rot and pests like termites. That means you won’t need to worry about frequent termite treatments or replacing decayed pickets.
PVC picket fences have a similar upfront cost to wood, however, they have lower maintenance costs. We believe PVC fencing is an excellent long-term investment – we even back it with a 30-year warranty.
PVC offers the same elegance as painted wood, with fewer maintenance headaches. Unless damaged or stained, your PVC picket fence should only require an annual clean and occasional spot cleaning to maintain its appearance. A white PVC picket fence won’t require regular sanding or painting, which is a considerable saving in the long run.
If you live in a coastal area, PVC is a great alternative to other metal fencing prone to rust. We guarantee that our PVC picket fencing will not rust for the product’s lifetime.
The disadvantages of PVC fencing are minimal, but still worth noting:
- It can be prone to damage from extreme weather and cracking upon impacts
- Sold as packs so pickets can’t be individually replaced, you may need to replace an entire panel if it becomes damaged, which can be more expensive. Speak to our team though as we usually have spare.
- You should pay attention to mould, mildew and algae that develop on your PVC fence and remove it ASAP, as they can cause staining
- PVC is not a natural material.
Is PVC Fencing Cheaper Than Wood?
While both PVC and timber will have similar upfront costs, you’ll likely spend more on maintaining a timber fence over its lifetime. Painted wood can be susceptible to termite damage, prone to splintering and rotting and requires regular sanding and painting. PVC, however, requires little ongoing maintenance – a good overall clean once a year and occasional spot cleaning are all it needs.
