History and Properties
PVC, also known as polyvinyl or vinyl, is one of the world’s most produced plastic polymer. It was first put into use in 1926 as a plastic material and ever since then has been put into great use among commercial enterprises.

PVC is resistant to weathering. In addition, it is a non-toxic, safe material that has been tested rigorously and has been used throughout the world for decades. Not only this but PVC is recyclable and re-usable.
Maintenance and Cleaning
PVC is easy to clean. The easiest way is to use a pressure washer to quickly and effectively remove mold or any other buildup and residue which may accumulate over time. This will make it look like new. Unlike wood, which cannot be pressure cleaned without damaging the outside layer, the plastic will not rot, deteriorate or become infected with termites or other insects. Water will not penetrate the surface at all like wood. And it does not rust. This makes PVC the best choice for decorative fences.
