Tips on Taking Care of Your Vinyl Fence

Vinyl is one of the most popular materials among American households when it comes to fencing installations. This is because vinyl fences are some of the most affordable, easy to install and most durable options available. However, you can only reap the benefits of your vinyl fence’s durability and low cost if you properly maintain it. After all, a fence that isn’t properly taken care of can easily break, and despite its low cost, what you spend on it can easily skyrocket if you have to keep repairing your current fence or installing a new one more often than you should. Luckily, there are easy ways to maintain your fence.

In this post, Handyman Connection® of Matthews discusses tips on how you can care for your home’s vinyl fence.


Regular cleaning is one of the simplest and best ways you can maintain your vinyl fence. Most of the dirt can be washed away with a simple mixture of mild soap and water and heavier stains on the fence can be cleared with any non-toxic household cleaning solution. Sometimes, a good cleaning can be the solution to some of your fencing maintenance needs and can even make an aged fence appear as good as new.

Oiling the Gate Hinges

Another simple maintenance step you can perform on your vinyl fence is oiling the gate hinges. Since the weather can cause your gate’s hinges to rust and the screws to loosen, oiling the hinges and tightening the screws regularly can ensure your gate will smoothly and quietly operate.

Adjusting The Gate

In order to maximize your fence’s life span, take steps to adjust your gate every spring. These adjustments and leveling are normal when you own a fence. If you lack the time or expertise, on the other hand, hiring a professional like Handyman Connection of Matthews is always a viable option.

Prevent Swinging

Despite its durability, a wildly swinging fence gate can still cause damage to your vinyl fence when it collides with the rest of the fence. That’s why it’s vital that you secure your fence’s gate with a latch or a lock, especially during a storm or on any windy day. Remind your kids not to play on the fence, particularly the gate.
