Thanks to its aesthetic appeal and enhanced privacy protection, it’s not surprising to find that vinyl fencing is one of the most popular materials on the market. As a non-toxic and non-metal material, it is great for homeowners with pets or kids that like to play in the yard.

What is Vinyl Fencing?

Vinyl fencing is made from polyvinyl chloride or PVC. This is a fairly common material in the construction industry, well-known for PVC pipes. Despite its plastic nature, vinyl is very eco-friendly. Compared to other fencing materials vinyl requires significantly less energy to produce and is recyclable. There are no toxic chemicals needed to create or maintain vinyl, protecting the environment it stands in.

This is a type of fence that we highly recommend for Minnesota residents. Vinyl can withstand the harsh Minnesota climate and environment, not succumbing to pests, frost, or rust. This is a big reason that ¾ of the vinyl produced is used in the construction industry around the nation.

How is a Vinyl Fence made?

There is a very complicated process that goes into making the actual vinyl plastic. In short, the combination of ethanol and chlorine makes the base. Add in some modifiers and additives and polyvinyl chloride is produced.

However, in terms of installation, it is much easier to understand. There are two parts to every vinyl fence: the posts and the panels. They are installed separately and when put together form the fence of your dreams.

Vinyl Fence Posts

Vinyl fence posts are similar to any other fence post you know of. They are long poles that are embedded into the ground and meant to hold together the rest of the fence. Unlike other fencing options, vinyl fences do not often have top or bottom rails because of their installation and visual privacy.

Vinyl Fence Panels

The panels are the second part of the vinyl fence. Most of the time during installation, the vinyl panels will come already put together. This means the slats have been manufactured with no peeking area between them. They are essentially large squares of the vinyl material that get installed between the fence posts. Putting these two parts together creates the full fence.

Types of Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fencing is a highly customizable and aesthetically pleasing fence material. There are so many options on the market in terms of products to purchase when installing a new vinyl fence. Northland Fence of Apple Valley has the experience and has done the research to know which vinyl fences are the best for our customers. Check out our options below!


Vinyl is a great material for almost any type of construction project. It can be manufactured in a variety of ways, and mass production means it can have several styles. But the style that makes vinyl unique is the privacy fence. It is the most requested kind of vinyl fencing that our customers have.

Vinyl Privacy Fence

A vinyl privacy fence offers you not only physical privacy and protection but visual as well. This is the most common type of vinyl fence we have available. It is great for those with close or nosy neighbors who are always looking for a party invite. With a privacy fence, you will have peace of mind that no one can see into your yard or home.

A vinyl privacy fence is also highly recommended for those with kids or pets who like to play in the yard. There are no holes in the privacy fence for arms or noses to get stuck in. Also, a privacy fence is virtually escape-free. There are no footholds to climb the fence, it is essentially a more functional and aesthetically pleasing wall.


Just like other fencing materials, a vinyl privacy fence can come in almost any size you want. The higher the fence, the more protection you receive. This is why privacy fences are often a bit taller than those just for decorative purposes. With our 15+ years in the fencing industry, we have found that 4’ and 6’ are the perfect heights for any fence.

A 4’ fence is great to keep kids and pets in the yard, but not completely isolating your home. A 6’ fence is a privacy fence that protects you and your family. Both fence heights have benefits, it all depends on what fits your needs and desires.


Since vinyl fencing is not a natural substance and is mass-produced, it can come in a variety of colors. However, most of these colors aren’t requested by customers and are either recycled or go to waste. This is why we have done the research and decided to offer our customers either tan or white vinyl fencing. They are the most aesthetically pleasing and the most requested colors.

White Vinyl Fence

The most popular vinyl fence we source is the white vinyl fence. The white vinyl fence is clean and sleek giving elegance to your property. It is great for customers who want a brighter aesthetic. While white vinyl fences may get dirty, they are easy to wash. You only need to hose it down with water and the mud comes right off preserving the clean and bright look of the fence.

What are the disadvantages of vinyl fencing?

The biggest disadvantage of a vinyl fence is the cost. Because it’s not a natural material, vinyl fencing can be a high-cost investment in terms of down payment and if you need repairs, but it’s worth it for stability, durability, and protection.

Is a vinyl fence cheaper than wood?

No, a vinyl fence is not cheaper than wood. Wood fencing is the cheapest material on the market and vinyl fencing is towards the other end of the spectrum. However, with vinyl fencing, you get protection, stability, and longevity that you won’t find with wood fencing.

Is vinyl or PVC fencing better?

They are the same thing! Vinyl is often the shorthand name for polyvinyl chloride or PVC.
