Vinyl Fence Guide

Everything you need to know about vinyl fence in South Florida

In South Florida, vinyl fence is the best choice for most residential fencing projects. Since PVC fence profiles are easily customized, you can achieve virtually any wood or metal fence style in a far more sustainable and attractive way.

For example, you can surround your back yard with a vinyl privacy fence, and then enclose your front yard with a vinyl picket fence. This is especially useful here in South Florida as properties can be very close together.

How to plan your South Florida vinyl fence project

1. Measure your fence & gate areas

Inspect your survey or use a measuring tape to accurately capture the length of each fence line. Draw out each fence line on a piece of graphing paper and then record the amount of footage measured next to the corresponding line on your drawing.

You will also need to give careful consideration to the location and dimension of gates on your project. Welded PVC gates can be as small as two feet or as large as twelve feet. Because of this, you should assess your entrance needs and mark down the desired width of your gates as well as the location during this part of the planning process.

2. Contact us to start planning

Once you have your measurements recorded on your project drawing, you will then need to consult our industry professionals to ensure that you understand the building code limitations of your county, city, and exact property location.

By sending us your drawing, along with a description of your location and your project requirements, we can easily inform you of all your available options. We fully understand the code requirements in all South Florida counties including Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach.

3. Obtain your permit & other prerequisites

All new vinyl fences installed in South Florida must be permitted prior to installation. You will need to contact your specific county, city, town, or village in order to find out exactly what your municipality requires from you, but all permits will require these things:

  1. A current copy of your property survey
  2. Product engineering documents
  3. Notice of commencement (project cost above $1500)
  4. Property information (available on property appraiser website)
  5. Project description

We provide engineering documents that are required during the permitting process. Please contact us to learn more about this.
