1. What is the main advantage of choosing PVC/Vinyl?
Vinyl/PVC not require any paints, stains, maintenance or replacement.
2. Does PVC/Vinyl fence become brittle in the winter?
As with most PVC products, vinyl will become less flexible in the colder weather. However, unless subjected to unusual impact, quality vinyl materials will not break or crack.
3. Will the PVC/Vinyl turn yellow?
As long as your fence is kept clean, with a periodic wash from a garden hose, it will not turn yellow.
4. What effects do PVC/Vinyl have on the environment?
PVC/Vinyl products are safe and non-toxic. They will not breakdown and release harmful chemicals into the ground and do not require toxic chemicals (stains, waterproofing, paint, paint thinner) for regular upkeep like treated lumber can. No trees are used in the manufacture of PVC/Vinyl.
Because of the exceptional long life of PVC/Vinyl, several times the amount of wood that is needed to manufacture the same fence in wood can be saved over the lifetime of the fence. If the vinyl ever needs to be taken down it can be recycled into other products, such as hoses and watering cans.
5. What are the choices of colour?
We offer all of our PVC/Vinyl products in a choice of White or Tan.
6. Are there no dark colours available?
Due to the amount of UV Stabilizer included within the PVC/Vinyl compound, and because the UV Stabilizers are white, dark colours are not available at this time.
7. Will a PVC/Vinyl fence move in the wind?
Yes. Outdoor PVC/Vinyl products are designed to have some "give" in them. The flexibility adds strength and keeps the fence from becoming brittle and breakable.
8. How do you clean the PVC/Vinyl?
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 stains, Soft Scrub or baking soda works well. Simple Green and steel wool also works to clean stubborn stains.
