But time always takes its toll on outdoor structures, so taking care of your fence as it ages is important.
If you don’t want to be “that house” on the block where the fence becomes a neighborhood blemish that could even drive down property values for you and your neighbors, it’s important to be prepared to invest in maintenance.
Even more important is making the proper decisions about fencing material before your fence is built. Be sure the fence type you choose is both affordable and of a type that you will be able to care for as time goes on. Be mindful that a wooden fence, while very appealing, is likely to cost much more to maintain in the long run. If time and cost of maintenance is an issue for you, then exploring PVC/vinyl fencing could be a more prudent solution. You might find that PVC/vinyl can offer just as much curb appeal as wood.
Regardless of the issues involved, having a fencing expert on your side as you choose your fence can be extremely helpful. Here at Security Fence Company, our staff can help you sort out your options based on your needs so that you will ultimately have just the right fence that will make your home a standout in your neighborhood.

Many big box stores, local fence companies and landscapers attempt to sell fencing that is a composite material wrapped in PVC. The composite material is made up from recycled materials that include plastic bags and ground up replacement window frames. This makes up the bulk of their product which can be unstable due to the different components expanding and contracting at different rates. This can cause cracking and structural failure. Security Fence Company’s PVC is composed 100% Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). No cracking, no structural failure.
Much of the PVC manufactured in Asia and third world countries contains so much lead it can actually leach into the ground water. Fortunately the EPA and DER were made aware of the situation and are working diligently to test and remove the contaminated product. Security Fence Company’s PVC is manufactured with PVC resin formed in the USA and all of our extrusions come from US manufacturing plants. No imports = No contaminated products.
We were one of the first in the industry over 20 years ago to construct our fence styles without unsightly and expensive exterior screws and brackets. Our philosophy is you can’t have a maintenance free fence if you use pointed screws and brackets to hold it together.
You wouldn’t stand in the sun every day for years without sunscreen, would you? Well neither does Security Fence Company’s PVC. Our products contain titanium dioxide which is why ours stays clean and sleek through the years and some of our competitor’s turn gray and rough.
Thin wall posts which require inserts to stabilize the fence will crack and fail within a short period of time. Security Fence Company PVC corner, end and line posts do not require inserts; they are a minimum wall thickness of .135”.
I’m sure in your neighborhood you can find a person who bought the wrong PVC fence. The pickets are falling off. This is most prevalent with the big box store products who are attempting to emulate our appearance of no exposed fasteners. Unfortunately, glue is not a solution. Ask your Security Fence Company PVC representative to show you the positive locking hidden fasteners we use. You’ll be impressed and your pickets will stay on your fence, not on the ground.
Our PVC uses all stainless steel gate hardware which is powder-coated. This process prevents rust because a PVC fence with rust running down the post or gate is not attractive.
If they won’t put their guarantee in writing, it’s not a guarantee. Security Fence Company will provide a written limited lifetime warranty on any of our Security Fence Company PVC styles.
Security Fence Company PVC uses aluminum inserts to prevent sagging of sections and extra stability in gate posts. Kids, dogs and bad neighbors abuse fencing by trying to go over, around, under and through it. By adding aluminum extrusions to the structural points of the fence, Security Fence Company PVC will stand up to the abuse.
Security Fence Company PVC utilizes this practice at every possible junction. Even our tongue and groove privacy boards have a positive interlock as opposed to our competition who simply butt board to board. This is why Security Fence Company PVC withstands the test of time and attacks from the elements.

Since it is typically much taller and serves to block the view of your property from the outside, a privacy fence can be a good option for many homeowners. You will want to be informed about all the features before making your final decision, and the following outlines some benefits for your consideration.
When used in conjunction with landscaping materials, you can form a beautiful setting or define an area of your yard. In fact, the height of a privacy fence may allow it to serve as a “wall” to enclose a new and trendy Outdoor Room – whether it is an outdoor kitchen, dining area, pool scape, spa or some other personal space taking advantage of the outdoors. Consider the possibilities.
Perhaps more than any other type of perimeter barrier, a privacy fence will offer your property some shelter from the elements. The fence will act as a windbreaker, protecting you and whatever it encloses from the effects of wind. Moreover, it will often also offer shade from the sun, depending on the layout in relation to your house.
A yard confined within a privacy fence will serve to keep out intruders – including the neighborhood animals – and it keeps your property hidden from prying eyes. At the same time it keeps your children and pets within the boundary, especially since they cannot see beyond the fence and be tempted to stray.
Typically, the height and solid construction of a privacy fence can lessen the amount of noise that your yard suffers from the outside so that it is not as intrusive as it would be with another type of fence or with no barrier at all. In addition, it will help to danpen the noise coming from your yard making you a considerate neighbor.

For those of you who are thinking that fences only belong outside, we're here to enlighten you.
Creative interior designers often have a different idea; and from time to time, they come to us here at Security Fence Company for help. We are always glad to accommodate as we did when a customer wanted to add a special touch to a bedroom with a unique headboard made from a single fence panel. The result was a beautiful focal point in this bedroom -- one that could likely not have been achieved with the use of a traditional bed headboard.
This is not a new concept. Creative homeowners have been using items such as fencing panels for many indoor uses. They have created stunning room dividers, railings and walls. They have added fence panels -- from split rail to white picket and more -- to give another dimension in front of a full wall mural. They have even incorporated outdoor elements like fencing, decking and railings into custom-built furniture.
Let's not forget all the innovative displays and decor crafted by commercial decorators and found in restaurants and retail stores where decorating themes are designed to capture the imagination of the customer -- everything from wood for rustic western to ornamental aluminum for european chic.
How about you? Have you made use of fencing or other nontraditional items in your indoor decorating? If so, why not share your creations with us? And if you have decorating ideas and could use our products, then let us be a part of your creative process. We can help you with your projects.
