Frequently Asked Vinyl Fence Questions

Find Answers to Some of the Most Commonly
Asked Questions About 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? Vinyl fencing allows you to enjoy a lifetime of beauty in your yard, not a lifetime of constant upkeep and maintenance.

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.

Vinyl fences are designed to withstand normal wind load.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

We recommend that you treat vinyl posts the same as wood posts, therefore we advise to cement the fence posts in.

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.
