WHY IS IT MORE EXPENSIVE THAN WOOD?
Simply, it’s not! Although your investment is more initially, this is where your expense ends. The cost difference is quickly eliminated once the substantial cost of continuous maintenance of a wood fence is considered. PVC fencing is the economical way to go, confidently saving you time and money with a fence backed by a lifetime warranty. Your PVC fence cost over twenty years is constant because there are no maintenance or repair bills due to age and wear. Wood fences are less expensive in the first few years, but increase and become more costly due to repairs, maintenance and even replacement. Resale value is another consideration. When you decide to sell your house a PVC fence will still look the same where a wood fence will have deteriorated.
WHAT IS THE WARRANTY AND WHAT DOES IT COVER?
The warranty covers all manufactured products (not installation or labor) for a lifetime on a non-prorated basis. The warranty covers the color of the product as well as any peeling or cracking of the material.
WHAT IS THE PRODUCT MADE OF?
The base ingredient is rigid PVC (polyvinyl chloride) modified to provide superior impact strength and ultraviolet (UV) resistance. The formulation is similar to that of vinyl siding, which has a 20-year history of providing long-term durability and structural integrity.
WILL IT TURN YELLOW?
No. The product consists of 10 parts titanium dioxide which prevents ultraviolet degradation.
WILL IT BREAK IN COLD/HOT WEATHER?
As with most plastics, vinyl will become less flexible in colder weather conditions. However, unless subjected to unusual impact, it will not break. It is normal for materials to contract and expand during temperature changes. This product has been engineered to accommodate normal temperature swings and changing climate conditions.
WILL IT BURN?
PVC has a high flash point of 900 degrees Farenheit and does not readily ignite. It is therefore categorized as being self-extinguishing.
WILL MY HORSE or DOG CHEW ON IT? WILL A WEEDEATER SCRATCH OR HURT IT?
PVC products have smooth surfaces with no nails, sharp edges or chance for splinters. You, your children, pets and animals are all safer. Vinyl has a tough surface, retains virtually no moisture and has no taste; therefore horses will not crib or chew it. In addition, our experience shows that PVC fencing holds up to routine property maintenance including the use of most types of weedeaters.
