Why choose vinyl fencing?
The vinyl fence you install today will look as good as new years from now without the expensive upkeep required by other conventional fence materials. Vinyl fences and handrails are the final touches to a maintenance free home. More homeowners are turning to vinyl siding and windows. Why not take advantage of those same benefits in your yard? A Westech vinyl fence allows you to enjoy a lifetime of beauty in your yard, not a lifetime of constant upkeep and maintenance.
Will vinyl fencing turn yellow?
Westech Fence products are warranted a lifetime against yellowing and have been field proven to maintain their color.
Can it break?
Under normal use, the fence will not break when properly installed. Vinyl Fencing can break if subjected to a direct impact (e.g., an automobile running into a fence line). Posts, pickets and rails are easily replaced if damaged.
How does it stand up in the wind?
Vinyl fences are designed to withstand normal wind load, if installed according to Westech’s specifications.
Does the product become brittle in winter?
As with most PVC products, vinyl will become less flexible in colder weather conditions. However, unless subjected to unusual impact, it will not break or crack. Westech’s products have been engineered to accommodate normal temperature swings.
Does it expand?
It is normal for vinyl materials to expand and contract during temperature changes. Your contractor will allow for expansion and contraction during the installation process.
How do you clean the fence?
As with all exterior products, our fence will become dirty when exposed to the elements. A mild detergent and water should be sufficient to keep your fence or deck rail looking new. For tough stain removal, call for more details.
How does it hold up to weed eaters?
As with all PVC and wood products, direct contact with lawn and garden equipment can cause damage to the posts. Use caution when operating any type of equipment near fence posts, especially commercial trimmers, which are more aggressive.
Do you cement the posts?
We recommend that you treat vinyl posts the same as wood posts, therefore we advise to cement the fence posts in.
How big should the hole be to cement the posts?
A good rule of thumb is dig the hold twice the diameter of the post and put cement to within two inches of the top of the hole.
What is the warranty?
Westech Building Products offers a transferable, lifetime warranty on all their products.
