A rose by any other name…

We take naming our product seriously. Very seriously. I mean, look at our past names: Peeping Tom, Curious George, Jiminy Picket… Very serious indeed!

This is why we need your help. If a rose by any other name would not smell as sweet, a fence panel by any other name would not look as good. Right? Ok, maybe not, but still, have some fun with us by taking our polls to help us name our new ornamental aluminum fence panels!

(If you like two names from the same batch, you can vote for two.)

MythBusters Part 3: There are Spiders and Cockroaches Living in WamBam Fence Posts!

We recently published a couple articles in our MythBusters series, and you can find links to them at the bottom of this article. This is the third and final post, which addresses this statement made by a not-so-friendly competitor:

“Also, the 4 grooves in the posts collect dirt and insects and really are not aesthetically pleasing.”

A post that's never been cleaned that was installed a couple years ago

Will Your Architectural Posts Really Collect Dirt?

Many customers say that besides the ease of installation, what they love most about our vinyl fence is the architecturally designed posts. The truth is that they don’t collect dirt any more than a normal vinyl post. As a matter of fact, the picture you see above is a smart phone shot of a post that was installed about 2.5 years ago next to a gravel driveway which is adjacent to a recent construction site. And it’s never been hosed or wiped down.

As for insects….hmmmm. This could be true. They love to eat vinyl fencing of course, right? Wrong. We don’t think insects would find our fence posts palatable, and we’re really not sure how they could hibernate in the groove. We’ve certainly never had a complaint about this. That’s right- not one, not ever.  That being said, they might be able to hide themselves up inside the post cap where there is an opening created by the groove in the post. But again, we have never had anyone ever mention this to  us as a problem. If they did, we could and would solve it.

The other thing about our four-way posts is that they not only look great, but they are also designed for simplicity. You don’t have to purchase different posts to terminate a fence run , handle a corner or an in-line application. It also makes the installation much more forgiveable because you don’t need to worry about lining your horizontal rails up perfectly to brackets or routed holes on your posts when installing your fence.

At the end of the day, you may prefer a more plain vinyl fence post, and that is 100% okay with us. We can’t control anyone’s personal preference on what’s aesthetically pleasing or not. However, we can say with confidence that our posts don’t attract dirt more than average posts and they aren’t a fast food joint or motel for insects, either!

MythBusters Part 2: WamBam Withholds Critical Info!


We recently published our first MythBusters post in response to what a not-so-friendly competitor was saying about our company. Today we want to address another part of this. Here’s what was said:

“Well – some companies think you can just pound (or “bam”) a round metal post in the ground and attach a vinyl post to it and like magic you are done sipping a cold drink enjoying your new cheap Chinese Fence (yes – they don’t advertise the made in China…)…”

What About China?

The reality is that we have never hidden the fact that we manufacture in China.  Every single box has always been identified as being  “Designed in the USA, Made in China”. In fact, you can read a blog article that was published in May 2010 where we fully disclose this fact.

We are proud of our long standing partnership with the leading manufacturer of vinyl  fence in China. For well over a decade they have done a fantastic job in meeting all the ASTM standards for vinyl fence, and have successfully shipped thousands of containers into many highly respected fence installation and manufacturing companies across North America. That’s right. Thousands, not dozens.

Our product design, quoting, marketing, sales, warehousing and shipping are handled by a fully qualified team of people working right here in North Carolina.  At the end of the day, we manufacture in China for the same reason Apple does. When it’s done right, you, the consumer, get better value for your money. Just because something is made overseas does not automatically make it cheap. Your iPhone, iPad, and iMac are perfect examples of this.

That being said however, we totally respect anyone who wants to purchase American Made products only. It’s a free country and like our friend Lee Greenwood sings….. God Bless the USA!

Stay tuned for the final post in our MythBuster series next week!
