Vinyl is Actually Less Expensive Than Wood

A good quality vinyl fence is virtually maintenance free and will last a lifetime. When initially shopping for a fence, you may be lured by the price of wood, as  it’s often quite a bit cheaper out of the gate. However, after a couple years you may live to regret that decision when you’re laboring away on weekends staining and maintaining it. After a few more years, you may abandon the maintenance all together. This means your fence’s lifespan will be cut way down, and the fence will need to be replaced sooner. Vinyl really is the least expensive option over the long haul. Need proof? Check out this infographic.

Helping Hurricane Sandy Recovery

Hurricane Sandy did some awful damage to St. Rose High School Convent in Belmar NJ.

The ground is flooded and the fence is destroyed

When Boy Scout Zach Canderozzi, a Freshman, asked us to help him with his service project to help get his Eagle ranking, it was impossible to say no, particularly after seeing the pictures.

Zach wanted to clean out the area and re-landscape so that the Sisters could enjoy the outdoors again. Labor was going to be provided by his fellow boy scouts over the course of several weekends, and they were looking for donations.

Hard work pays off

We shipped Zach enough panels of Jiminy Picket Vinyl Fence to complete the fence portion of the project. We enjoyed the pictures and the email he sent through informing us of his progress:

“I just wanted to let you know that the fence is almost completely installed. It really was very easy for me to put in with my Dad and Scoutmaster. Some other work has been going on at the school in the same area and we just have to install the last 2 panels this weekend. Thought you might like to see some pictures of the progress Ive made….So many of the Sisters who live there, workers who are doing repairs, and passerbys have stopped to compliment the fence. It really gives the project a finishing touch. More pictures will come. I cant thank you enough.

All the best,

Zach”

Zach, you’re an inspiring teenager. Thanks for letting us be a part of your Service Project. We have no doubt you’ll eventually get your Eagle Scout ranking!

WamBam Makes Another Appearance on the DIY Show “Fix This Yard”

In this episode, homeowners Jake and Kristen have had their house on the market for 7 months with no bites, probably due to their unsightly yard. The “Fix That Yard” crew goes in on a weekend and helps Jake and Kristen whip it in to shape. The best part? They opt for a WamBam vinyl fence that comes in particularly handy during a time crunch! This video shows the highlights.

 

Four Energetic Puppies Need a Fence

With 4 adorable puppies on the run, the Gorgans need a fence!

Will and his wife Nancy recently adopted 4 puppies and needed a fence. They opted for our vinyl picket fence and this is what Will had to say:

“The fence project went very well. I did most of the project myself (my wife was out of town the first weekend but was able to help me on Saturday of the final weekend with the finishing touches). I only hit one underground obstacle (a root that was only 8 inches down that I had to chop out with an axe).

I only made a couple of small mistakes and no one but me even notices them. I had to get a little creative in a few spots. The fence is very versatile, and I was able to figure out how to make it work to solve the problem areas I ran into. I almost called for advice a couple of times, but figured it out without needing to call.

The fence lines came out very straight. I’ve included a few pictures (including the reasons for the fence – yes there are 4 of them). I chose to angle the fence up and down the slopes rather than step the fence so that the dogs would not be able to escape under the fence.

The woman in the picture is my wife, Nancy. She is the one who bought the dogs and then decided we needed a fence to keep them in. She is also the one who found your website and decided that your fence system would make a great addition to my “honey do” list.

The dogs are Maggie and Molly (the blonde French twins with the long legs), Max (the red labradoodle) and Chip – short for Chocolate Chip (the chocolate Australian labradoodle). They are all about 12 weeks old and full of energy. Quite a handful. It is a lot easier now that the fence is installed…”

This was a big vinyl fencing project and Will nailed it!
