Why do you need to install a Vinyl Fence? Are you aiming for privacy or beauty or both? Knowing your purpose will help you know which design perfectly fits. Install a vinyl fence that has no gaps in between if you aim for privacy.

Backyard layout

Choose a vinyl fence that is suitable for the layout in your yard. There are three primary types of vinyl fence you can choose from considering your yard layout.

  • Line Post – installed in straight lines
  • Corner Post – can be installed in 90 degrees end-to-end
  • End Post – cannot be connected to an end and comes to an end like a gate or a building and cannot be enclosed like other types of vinyl fences.

Permanent or semi-permanent type

A permanent type comes with a pipe and would need a deeper dig. This is recommended in areas that are windy and prone to tornadoes. Most of the vinyl fences are semi-permanent and do not need a deeper dig.


Choose a style that will conform to the layout of your yard and the design of your house. Post or rail vinyl fences are recommended for a large property because it creates boundaries without blocking the view of the home.

Caps Design and Options

For aesthetic purposes, caps are available in various styles. Solar caps that absorb sunlight and work well with light bulbs are recommended for efficiency. If you opt for more lighting, you can choose LED solar caps.


There are vinyl-coated products which are much cheaper than the all-vinyl types or professional grade vinyl. Choose high-grade vinyl products made with virgin vinyl, UV inhibitors, and impact modifiers that make them weather-resistant and long-lasting.


Vinyl fences are usually tested for wind and changeable weather conditions. Areas prone to hurricanes may require a permanent vinyl fence that comes with a pipe. Choose a vinyl fence that is resistant to adverse weather conditions like cracking and chipping.


As you choose the design and match it with your purpose, you can very well estimate how much you have to spend on your vinyl fence. The area to be covered will also be a factor in the length of the vinyl fence you will have to build. Prices vary per state, but the average total cost which includes materials, post concrete installation, labor costs, supplies, and unforeseen material needs is $98 to $144 per linear foot. The national average cost of a vinyl fence is $3,594, but considering the cost of Low End to High-End Vinyl fences, it would cost $950-$7,800.


Permanent vinyl fences come with a lifetime warranty, which depends on the brand and the manufacturer. Always select a vinyl fence that comes with a warranty.


Both permanent and semi-permanent vinyl fences are easy to install. DIY methods often accompany the vinyl fence that you purchase.
