Key Benefits of Vinyl Fences for Sarasota, Florida

It’s important to choose the right fence for your property – one that meets your functional needs and looks beautiful in your outdoor space. A vinyl fence from a reputable Sarasota fence company is one of the easiest choices for a homeowner and business to make. We already know the value and great qualities of vinyl fencing and we’re excited to share them with you! Take a look at this list of reasons that make vinyl fencing a top choice for your home or business and we bet you’ll agree.

1. Strong and Durable

A fence is a big investment and a very important decision because a well-made fence can last a lifetime. Vinyl fencing is strong and durable, even more so than wood fences or other types of fencing materials. Vinyl fencing is five times stronger than wood fences and it’s in the same category as aluminum and steel. This is important when dealing with the sometimes harsh, wet weather conditions we experience in the Sarasota area. Vinyl retains its color wonderfully, so you won’t have to worry about staining, sealing, or repainting. You won’t have to replace any rotten or warped boards and you’ll have a beautiful fence that requires very little attention.  Your vinyl fence will practically take care of itself! 

2. Long Lasting

With very little maintenance or effort on your part, your vinyl fences will last for decades to come. Vinyl fences become an incredible value once you consider the fact that they will never have to be replaced due to deterioration. Our vinyl fences also come with an impressive manufacturer’s warranty, and because they were installed by an expert Sarasota fence company like Veterans Fence Company, you can also count on our 1-year  workmanship warranty. Should anything happen, we’ll be right there to make it right!

3. Low Maintenance

Vinyl fences are very easy to maintain and they practically take care of themselves!  Many Sarasota, FL homeowners choose a vinyl fence for this reason alone! Their surface doesn’t scratch easily and doesn’t require any sealing or painting to keep it looking brand new. It’s also a great product if you have pets or kids, as you won’t have to worry about splinters as you do with a wood fence.


Since vinyl is nonporous, it’s easy to clean. If your fence ever gets dirty you can just spray it with a hose to clean the surface. Occasionally algae, mold, or mildew may start to grow on a vinyl fence, especially if the fence sits near a sprinkler that keeps the area damp. Simply hose your fence to clean the majority of the stain, and then scrub it down with a bucket of sudsy water. Rinse the fence with your hose, and the stain should be gone.

4. Variety of Style

Vinyl fences come in many different styles so you’re sure to find the perfect look to complement your property’s aesthetic. You can get tall privacy fences with the slats close together for a privacy fence, or you might like the nostalgic look of picket styles with slats that are more spaced out. You’re also able to add accents, such as lattice at the top of the fence, a scalloped top, or decorative post caps. 


Vinyl fencing can be installed anywhere you need to enclose a portion of your yard. For instance, you can use a tall fence for security and privacy around your backyard. Or you can put one around a pool for safety. Plus, you can use short vinyl fencing around garden beds or other parts of your lawn that you want to accent.

5. Durable Finish

Unlike wood fences that need to be painted and stained several times over the course of their lifespan, vinyl fences will never fade or chip. Vinyl fences maintain the same color throughout the depth of the fence so you’ll never need to refinish or paint your fence. Vinyl will look practically brand new for the entire life of the fence.

6. Privacy

Unlike aluminum or iron, vinyl fencing can offer complete privacy. One-piece panels are available, eliminating the usual spaces between individual posts and this makes vinyl perfect for backyards, pool enclosures, and perimeter fences. It’s also a great fence material to hide dumpsters or mechanical equipment. The vinyl fences we install are six feet high, tall enough to ensure privacy and hide the enclosed space from view.

7. Affordability

Vinyl fencing does have a higher up-front cost than certain fencing materials and less than some others.  However, when you look at the many benefits a vinyl fence offers, like its long life and almost non-existent maintenance, it practically pays for the difference with all the time and money you’ll save by not having to replace or repair it. You won’t be spending an entire weekend cleaning or painting it, and you won’t have to spend money on materials to replace damaged boards, paint, or stain. The long-term cost of vinyl fences is significantly lower than the maintenance of any other fencing material.
