In some cases, replacing a vinyl picket fence is cheaper than repairing. Although easy to install, a single panel may be more expensive than a wooden panel, but overall replacement projects are generally cheaper. This is because these components are pre-assembled and designed to fit together with minimal additional effort.
Some fencing parts may come with their own mounting kit. If a single panel needs to be replaced, you can easily replace it with the same panel. This type of change does not affect the overall integrity of the fence. If your vinyl picket fence is older, it can be a bit more troublesome to replace, and the installation can take several hours, or up to one afternoon.
