Did You Know?

We know our vinyl is much better quality than the box stores, and we’re proud of the quality product we offer. However, we were pretty surprised recently when we delved a little deeper and took the actual weight of a couple of their panels and compared it to ours. Ours weighed 30%-40% more per foot! We knew our product was a lot more dense, but we were surprised that the weight was so much more.

Since we notice fencing of all kinds when we drive around in our daily lives, we often see homes with box store fences that look translucent in the sunlight. In other words, they are so thin that the sun shines through. The price may be right, but the age old truth “you get what you pay for” holds true. This thin product will not last, which means you’ll have to replace it way sooner than you want to, resulting in additional time and money.

Just make sure you do all your homework when buying a vinyl fence. You want a product that will perform consistently over the lifetime of the product, and our lifetime guarantee gives that peace of mind. There are many great manufacturers in the fence industry that extrude a quality product, so even if you don’t choose our fence, just make sure that you choose one that will stand the test of time- and won’t act as an outdoor lampshade!
