What To Expect During Home Vinyl Fence Installation


Durable, versatile in design, and quick to install, vinyl fencing adds so much value to your property. If you have made arrangements for vinyl fence installation, you may have a few questions about the process. Find out more about what to expect below.  

Do you need to be home for vinyl fence installation?

As long as you meet with the fence contractor initially and discuss the particulars of the project, you may not need to be home during the actual installation. Just be sure the fence contractor has a way to reach you if anything comes up during the installation that requires your input. Some contractors will request property owners to be home on the installation day, but this is not the norm. 

Will the property have to be graded before the fence can be installed?

Typically, grading is not necessary to install a fence. However, there can be situations in which minimal grading may be the best option. For example, if the ground where the fence is to be installed is so uneven that it would impede the evenness of the fence, some grading work may need to be done. 

How long will vinyl fence installation take?

If you are having a vinyl fence installed, it is essential to factor in the installation time when planning your project. Vinyl fence installation can take anywhere from a few hours to several days, depending on the size of the fence and the complexity of the installation. Some factors that can affect the installation time include:

  • The size of the fence—A larger fence will obviously take longer to install than a smaller fence.
  • The complexity of the installation—If the fence is being installed on a slope or in a difficult-to-access area, it will take longer to install.
  • The experience of the installer—A professional installer will be able to install a vinyl fence more quickly than a novice.
  • The weather conditions—If the weather is bad, it will take longer to install the fence.

Does a vinyl fence need to be sealed after installation?

It is not necessary to seal a vinyl fence after installation. However, sealing it can help to protect it from the elements and keep it looking new for longer. If you do decide to seal your vinyl fence, use a sealant that is specifically designed for vinyl surfaces. Or, talk to your chosen fence contractor to have them seal the fence before they leave.
