Vinyl fences are incredibly popular choices. While you might also hear them called plastic fences, that doesn’t mean they’re easy to break down. One of the great things about vinyl is that it is low-maintenance, but you still need to take care of your vinyl fence.
Make Sure They’re Stable
Stability is important no matter what type of fence you have. So, before you do anything else, make sure that your vinyl fence is still as stable as the day you put it up. Rain, snow, and the ground freezing and then thawing again will change the soil, which could cause soil erosion. You don’t want your fence to fall down, so that’s why you need to be sure the posts are still upright.
Fix the Caps
The next step is to look at the caps on your vinyl fence and see if they need to be fixed. Because of the wild weather in northern Virginia, your fence post caps could come loose and you wouldn’t even notice it until it’s too late. All you need to secure them is some plastic glue, much like how you would use wood glue on a wooden fence.
Clean It Up
You’ll also need to keep your fence as clean as possible. We know that in the fall, flying leaves, bits of mulch, and grass clippings can stain your fence as you attempt to get some yard work done. While this is annoying, it doesn’t have to be a huge headache With some soap and water, you can rinse off anything that your fence is covered in. Also, if you do this often enough, you can prevent the build of mold, mildew, and algae on your vinyl fence.
