Fencing Frequently Asked Questions
What does the “Lifetime Warranty” mean?
If the vinyl should ever discolor, peel, rot, pit, blister, warp, rust, flake, crack, corrode, or be damaged by insects it would be replaced by the factory free of charge.
How long has vinyl fence been around?
Vinyl fencing has been available since 1984 ( over 15 years). It is the fastest growing product in the fencing industry with sustained annual growth at 30% plus.
Can I install it myself?
If you can use a level, a tape measure, a post hole digger and a sting line- and are willing to take the time to do the job right- you can probably do the job yourself. We have written instructions available. For the larger jobs some people like to hire a professional for the hole drilling or the entire job.
Can I put a hot wire on it?
Yes you can. The entire vinyl post is an insulator which means you won’t need any special hardware. All you have to do is drill a hole in the posts and string the wire through. You should probably use a wire that is resistant to rust and corrosion.
How do you set the posts?
The posts are set in concrete in the ground from 24 to 36 inches deep and in some cases cement is put inside the posts with re-bar for exceptional strength. (This is not recommended for livestock because it makes it too strong.)
Can I paint it?
Paint doesn’t adhere well to the surface which is good in the case of graffiti but bad if you like to paint things. The color of the vinyl goes all the way through so it can’t be scratched or chipped off which means it will never need to be painted.
Will it discolor or become brittle over time?
It is warranted by the factory for your lifetime to never do that. We use a U.V.inhibitor called titanium dioxide at a rate of 10 parts per hundred which creates a solar barrier equivalent to a sun block of 38 so the sun can’t break it down.
How long does it take to get it?
Usually 2 to 3 weeks.
