When it comes to enhancing the beauty, security, and sustainability of your New York residential property, vinyl fences stand out as a top choice. With over three decades of experience, Unified Home Remodeling, a New York vinyl fence contractor, has seen firsthand how a new vinyl fence can transform properties. In this article, we’ll explain the many advantages of vinyl fences specifically tailored to the unique needs of New York homeowners.

Vinyl Fencing Elevates the Aesthetics of New York Homes

Transform Your Outdoor Space

Vinyl fencing doesn’t merely perform the function of enclosing an area, it’s also about improving your property’s overall appearance. With options ranging from traditional picket designs to ornate lattice patterns, vinyl fences offer something for every aesthetic palate.

Modernity and Elegance

Vinyl fences bring a sleek appearance that is a perfect match for the contemporary design of many New York homes. Unlike dated alternatives like wood or chain link, a vinyl fence sends a message of modern sophistication.

The Perfect Backdrop for Landscaping

Do you have a garden to show off? Vinyl fences provide an unobtrusive yet elegant backdrop, making your backyard oasis pop.

Consistent Beauty

Unlike wood, vinyl doesn’t age into a dull, grayish color. The material maintains its color and finish over time, continuing to enhance the visual appeal of your property.

Customizable to Personal Tastes

With vinyl, customization is a breeze. Want to incorporate some decorative postcaps or perhaps a two-tone color scheme? No problem! Your selections are nearly limitless, allowing you to create a one-of-a-kind appearance that stands out in your neighborhood.

Enhances Property Value

Good aesthetics are more than just pleasing to the eye; they can also add tangible value to your property. A well-installed, attractive vinyl fence can be a selling point if you ever decide to move, making it an investment that pays off in more ways than one.

Security and Peace of Mind

Physical Deterrence

Let’s start with the basics: a sturdy fence acts as a physical barrier, making it difficult for intruders to enter your property. Our vinyl fences are reinforced with steel and make formidable obstacles, particularly the taller privacy styles.

Visual Barrier

A solid vinyl fence provides a visual block, ensuring your family activities or valuable possessions aren’t on display for anyone walking by. If you’re in a bustling New York neighborhood, where homes are often close together, a visual barrier can add an invaluable layer of privacy and security.

Safe for Kids and Pets

A well-constructed vinyl fence can serve as a safe boundary for children and pets. Not only can it keep them in, but it can also keep stray animals, intruders, and other potential dangers, out. Plus, vinyl doesn’t splinter or have sharp edges, reducing the risk of injury.

Wind and Impact Resistance

A sturdy fence can also serve as a security measure during storms. Our steel-reinforced vinyl fences are engineered to withstand significant wind forces, making them less likely to topple over or become projectiles during the adverse weather conditions we experience in New York. 

A Long-Term Investment in Safety

For durability and longevity, vinyl fences outperform many other materials, making them more than just a purchase but an investment in your family’s well-being and peace of mind.

Durability: A Fence That Lasts in New York

Withstand the Elements

New York is known for its variable climate—scorching summers, frigid winters, and the occasional storm can wreak havoc on traditional fencing materials like wood and metal. But not so with vinyl fences! Crafted with durability in mind, vinyl can weather the elements without succumbing to rust, rot, or decay.

Resistance to Pests

Unlike wooden fences, vinyl is virtually impervious to pests. No termites, no woodworms, and no other insect invaders. You won’t find yourself with unexpected pest control bills when you opt for vinyl fencing.

UV-Resistant Quality

The sun is both a blessing and a curse for outdoor fixtures. While it can bleach and weaken many materials, quality vinyl fencing comes with UV inhibitors that help the fence keep its color and strength despite prolonged exposure to sunlight.

No Color Fading

Remember the vibrant hue your wooden fence had when it was first installed? Over time, exposure to the elements can cause fading. With vinyl, the color stays true for years, often for the life of the fence itself.

Minimal Expansion and Contraction

Moisture and freeze-thaw cycles cause materials like wood to expand and contract, which can loosen screws and nails and contribute to structural instability. Vinyl is more stable and designed to reduce this effect, making it a dependable choice in all seasons.

Low Maintenance Wonders

Wooden fences might need a fresh coat of paint, stain, or sealant every few years, not to mention the need for board replacements due to rot or damage. Metal fences might rust and require anti-rust treatments. On the other hand, vinyl fences demand little of your time for maintenance. An occasional washing with mild soap and a garden hose is usually enough to keep them looking pristine.

Sustainability: Eco-Friendly Choice

Made of 100% Virgin PVC

Here at Unified, our vinyl fences are made of 100% virgin PVC, setting them apart from other fencing options. This premium material not only assures a beautiful and long-lasting fence, but it also significantly benefits the environment in several ways.

Longevity Over Replacement

Virgin PVC lasts significantly longer than wood and other fencing materials. Because you won’t have to replace it as often, you’re not only saving money but also reducing the cycle of manufacturing and disposal, thus conserving resources in the long run.

No Tree Harvesting

By choosing to install a vinyl fence, you eliminate the need for tree harvesting needed to produce traditional wooden fencing and help preserve our forests.

Less Energy Intensive Manufacturing

The production of virgin PVC requires less energy compared to many other materials, meaning fewer greenhouse gas emissions, making the manufacturing process more eco-friendly.

PVC vinyl fences can be recycled

Recyclable Material

When a vinyl fence reaches the end of its lifespan, it’s not the end of the road. Virgin PVC is recyclable, meaning your old fence can be reprocessed into new PVC products instead of ending up in a landfill. 

A Conscious Choice for Sustainability

If you’re a homeowner in New York, opting for a vinyl fence isn’t just a personal advantage; it’s a collective nod to sustainable practices. When you choose one of our vinyl fences, you’re making a statement that you prioritize both quality and environmental responsibility.
