Choose the primary material:

Vinyl Fence

Vinyl panels are as strong and sturdy as they come, but don’t sacrifice anything when it comes to style. Today, vinyl fence technology is creating more durable and versatile products than ever before. Various colors and textures mimic natural materials, helping homeowners achieve a custom look. Steel-reinforced railings and UV protection make it a favorite of contractors for long-lasting, low-maintenance fencing.

At AVO we offer BuffTech vinyl fence for a high-quality product that’s consistent from panel to panel, picket to picket. When you choose Bufftech vinyl fence you can be reassured that your are getting a product with carefully selected ingredients designed to increase durability and long-term performance. All Bufftech products are backed by CertainTeed lifetime warranty.

Natural Cedar Wood Fence

Wood is the natural choice for homeowners seeking a clean, classic look for fencing and other outdoor structures. AVO Fence & Supply is proud to be one of the largest suppliers of cedar fences in New England.

  • Durable: Cedar wood endures our northern climate up to 5 times better than other species, with natural resistance to insects, mold, and rot.
  • Eco-friendly: Natural oils repel insects so cedar wood fencing does not require any toxic chemical treatment to prevent insect damage.
  • Low-Maintenance: While other woods should be painted or stained to be preserved, cedar can be left to weather to a beautiful natural hue (a silky, silver gray), making it the only decorative wood fencing choice that’s virtually maintenance free.
