Fence vs. Fencing

You may have heard the word “fencing” as a term used to describe a type of enclosure that surrounds a property.  But at CertainTeed, a leading manufacturer of premium vinyl fence, we believe fencing is a sport, not a product.

In our vernacular, fencing is an activity with sword-wielding participants made famous in movies like The Three Musketeers and Pirates of the Caribbean. While we certainly appreciate a good sword fight, we prefer to refer to our products as “fence.”

Fences — or fencing, if you must — can be both functional and decorative. A fence is often used to mark the perimeter of a property, keep children or pets safely contained in an area, or as a protective enclosure around swimming pools. A fence is also a great way to add a decorative accent to a front or back yard.

CertainTeed offers a complete line of high-quality, low-maintenance vinyl fence products under the Bufftech® and CertainTeed Selects™  brand names. From privacy to picket, semi-private to post and rail, there’s a CertainTeed vinyl fence style to suit every taste and budget.

CertainTeed vinyl fence is an easy-care alternative to wood fencing. Unlike wood, which requires costly and time-consuming maintenance, CertainTeed vinyl fence combines beauty, durability and long-lasting performance in a wide variety of colors, textures and sizes.

Our CertaGrain® and Select Cedar fences feature an authentic woodgrain texture that replicates both the look and feel of wood. If you’re looking for something a little different, consider our CertaStucco™ fence, CertainTeed’s innovative alternative to traditional stucco walls.

CertainTeed’s industry-leading color palette includes both solid colors and multi-chromatic color blends that faithfully capture the look of stained wood.

CertainTeed fence is made in the U.S.A. and backed by the best warranty in the vinyl fence business — lifetime limited transferable coverage along with our exclusive SureStart™ protection, which covers the cost of labor, repair and replacement for the first five years after installation.

So whether you’re in the market for a fence or fencing, we hope you’ll choose CertainTeed vinyl fence, the nation’s largest and most respected name in building products for more than a century.
