Gainesville Vinyl Privacy Fences / PVC Fencing

Gainesville Vinyl Privacy Fences

(Serving Greater Ocala Area as well)

A vinyl privacy fence in Gainesville is a great investment for home owners. It can add security for your children and pets, considerable privacy, and usually improves the value of your home. When considering a privacy fence, many people think of wood right away. Did you know that wood fences typically last only 5 to 10 yrs before showing evidence of major wear and tear? Vinyl Privacy Fences are the most durable privacy fence you can buy – lasting as long as 50 years or more. If you have previously had a wooden privacy fence and are tired of all the repairs, maybe it’s time to upgrade to a vinyl privacy fence from Hercules.

Because of the additional investment required with a vinyl fence, you should be sure to hire the right contractor. Here are some things to consider…

Proper Vinyl Fence Installation

Our Hercules installers do things the right way, in order to protect your investment and insure your vinyl fence looks great for many years.

  • We use 6 foot sections for ALL of our vinyl privacy fence installations. One reason – they are stronger than 8 foot sections.
  • We install posts every 6 feet. You can get 8 foot sections a little cheaper, however they tend to sagging after a period of time especially when exposed to the intense Gainesville summer sun.
  • We concrete every post to help preserve your vinyl privacy fence. Most of our competitors concrete only the gate posts, but we know it is important to concrete each and every post. Why? Your completed vinyl fence is like a giant sail on a boat. During hurricanes and heavy winds, if your posts are not anchored solidly, your fence will end up falling over or leaning. During the 2004 hurricanes, we received a lot of calls to repair fallen and/or leaning fences. But what’s interesting – NONE of them were Hercules original installations! Our vinyl fences held strong during those high winds.
  • We fill the entire gate posts with concrete. There is a lot of strain and weight put on those gate posts. Filled with concrete, they won’t sag or lean over time, and even after years of use, your gate will continue to swing properly. You won’t need to lift your gate to avoid hitting the ground when shutting it, which can put unnecessary stress on other parts of your gate and fence.


We’ve been installing fences in Central Florida for over 60 years. Our family-operated business employs four full-time professional crews. The guy with the least experience on Hercules’ payroll, has been installing fences full time for over 10 years! Combined, our team has over 135 years of installation experience. You simply won’t see a part time student installing your fence if you choose Hercules.

Protection and Guarantees

All of our labor and materials are warranted. And, some of our Gainesville vinyl privacy fence products have manufacturer’s lifetime warrantees. Our philosophy at Hercules is “Do it right the 1st time.” As a result, everyone on our team will do our best to ensure that your fence is perfect when we leave your home. However, if there is any reason that you are not completely satisfied, we will come back and make it right with no additional cost to you. Finally, we have one of the only showrooms in Central Florida, where you can see the materials before you buy.

PVC Fencing vs. Vinyl Fencing

We are often asked, “What is the difference between PVC Fencing and Vinyl Fencing?” The easy answer is nothing! “PVC fencing” and “vinyl fencing” are used interchangeably in the fencing industry.  PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride, which is the material that all vinyl fences are made from.

Vinyl Privacy Fence Cost and Pricing

If you take the time to shop, you might be able to find a fence company that is cheaper than Hercules. But “cheaper” isn’t always less expensive. If the job is done incorrectly then you haven’t really saved. The value of a fence done right can save you much more down the road.  Be sure to protect your investment.
