Will vinyl burn?PVC has a flash point of 900° Fahrenheit and does not readily ignite. Vinyl, therefore, is classified as "self-extinguishing".
How long will a Vinyl fence last?Our components are engineered to make fences that will last a lifetime. All of our extruded components carry a fully transferable, non-prorated lifetime warranty. For warranty details, see the warranty section of this site.
How does vinyl versus wood compare in cost?Although the initial cost of vinyl is slightly higher than wood, vinyl's long-term, maintenance-free durability more than makes up for that cost difference, and actually saves you money over time.
Can vinyl fencing break?Our Vinyl components use a high content of impact inhibitors which prevent the breaking of properly installed fencing under normal use and conditions. Of course, dramatic and direct impacts such as being struck by a car can cause damage, so it's good to know that components are easy to replace.
Will fencing become brittle in cold weather?While plastic materials do become less flexible when it's cold, our components are designed to accommodate normal temperature swings. The impact inhibitors we use to prevent breaking also help our components withstand cold weather conditions.
Will fencing expand?Vinyl fencing will contract and expand according to the temperature. This is normal and expected, and is factored in when fencing is fabricated.
Our vinyl components are engineered to withstand chipping, peeling, and decay for their full-service life.
