Vinyl Fence Orlando
WHY CHOOSE PVC FENCE
Styles and Colors
By far the most popular style is our 6′ high white total privacy fence called Tongue and Groove Privacy. It was created to be the privacy fence that would stay looking the same for many years and require no maintenance. Other available styles include lattice and stake top tongue and groove, PVC vertical shadow box, picket fence and horse rail fencing. All styles are available in a tan color and a darker tan called Khaki. Colors can also be mixed within one fence. Grained texture pickets are also available.
Some find it hard to understand how a material as flexible as PVC is can be strong. If one grasps the top of a 6′ high privacy PVC fence, it can be swayed back and forth. In fact, PVC has four times the flexibility of wood, but it has five times the tensile strength. It, and every fence Ace installs, will meet or exceed the strict wind load requirements in our counties.
Vinyl is virtually maintenance free. It is smooth and non-porous which makes it difficult for mildew to grow. It will form in only under the wettest conditions but is easily removed with water and a mild detergent as is any dirt which may accumulate on the fence. There is no need to scrape, paint or stain a vinyl fence.
When PVC was new, its cost was more than double that of wood fencing. Some people think they can’t afford a vinyl fence because that is what they have heard. The pricing has come down significantly. Additionally, our quantity purchasing, and in-house routing makes our prices highly competitive.
PVC Fence Installation: Understanding the Basics
PVC fencing is one of the most popular materials in the marketplace today. Its durability and elegant appearance match nearly any landscape, including residential and commercial properties. We encourage you to hire a professional to install your fencing since erecting and aligning a fence has some exact science behind it.
Clearing the Legalities
Hiring a professional company, such as All County Fence, takes the difficulty out of fencing design and construction. We start our installation by looking at the legal aspect of the project, such as:
- Property-line limitations
- Local easements
- HOA or zoning-law features
Your fence must be constructed on your property. Most properties line up like soldiers along a standard, neighborhood block. By locating the fence along your property’s edge, there’s no concern about who is responsible for its repair and upkeep. It’s yours to enjoy as its security and privacy improve your property’s value.
Staking out the Line
A significant reason why a professional is necessary for fencing work is the layout. The fence must be staked out with straight lines and appropriate corners. Contractors typically set temporary posts and string lines between them as visual markers. They alter this arrangement until a rough pattern emerges. This string line will eventually become your fence.
At this point, contractors also take the slope of a property into consideration. They must account for an upslope or downslope across the land so that the fence has an attractive appearance. You’ll notice measuring tapes, wood and string lines used once again as the fence project comes alive.
Digging for Posts
Contractors vary their techniques when it comes to digging holes for the posts. Ideally, each hole will be 10 inches in diameter. The depth, however, depends on the posts’ lengths. Most contractors install about one-third of the post into the ground. This rough value keeps the posts sturdy through most weather patterns.
Along with the post, the hole must also support about 6 inches of gravel. This material gives the hole some drainage so that the post is never submerged in water. Trapped moisture can wear away any material, including PVC plastic.
Setting the Concrete
Contractors move onto concrete setting at this point. We’ll fill the hole with wet concrete. The post goes into the wet concrete so that it can set. Part of the concrete fills the post where there’s a hollow section. This bonding is critical to a long-lasting fence.
You’ll notice that the contractor spends some time with alignment as the concrete remains pliable. We’ll follow these steps, including:
- Tapping the post into the ground until it strikes the gravel.
- Plumbing and leveling the post.
- Setting adjacent posts.
- Comparing and adjusting the post-grouping before the concrete sets.
The posts are the most critical components of the fencing installation. It takes time to set them right. They should appear straight and plumb from a quick glance at the layout.
Attaching the Panels
We install brackets onto the posts so that the panels can slide into place. Because the posts will be installed with great accuracy, the brackets and panels should fit together without any problems.
Contractors inspect and test the fencing with every panel in place. There shouldn’t be any warped or bowed sections.

Our PVC is Different Than the Home Centers
We do not sell or install the PVC fencing that you might find at the local home centers, nor do we sell PVC fence imported from China. They often utilize undersized and thinner posts, brackets in place of routed holes directly in the posts, as well as the utilization of a wood post inserted into each PVC post in an effort to make them strong enough to meet local codes. The added cost of the wood posts and metal clips make their total post cost higher than our posts which meet all codes in and of themselves. Simply put, our PVC is thicker, stronger and better looking.
