We had wooden fencing that needed replacement. After much debate and driving around to check out fencing at other homes my husband and I decided on installing white 6 ft. vinyl fencing. So far we have installed it on either side of our home to the neighbors wood fence and just the change from wood to the white was awesome. It gave our home a brand new look. My husband, daughter and I did the installation ourselves in a couple of evenings after work. Not only does it look nice when you pass by on the street but the back side is just as beautiful which is a great improvement over the old wood fence. I feel more secure in knowing no one can wander into the backyard pool area. This is the best ever low maintenance purchase we have added to our home. A quick rinse with the hose after all the snow has melted and it is clean again. Since installing this fence we also added a small white picket fence made of the same vinyl material in front of a portion of the house and built a flower garden in front of it. Vinyl fencing is more expensive but it will never rot and I will never have to stain wood fencing again.
