You have choices when it comes to purchasing a vinyl fence. Illustrated below are some of differences between a lattice topped vinyl fence that can be purchased off the shelf at your local big box store and our Curious George vinyl fence. You can also watch the video. Plus, you might be surprised at a cost comparison. We understand that some of these differences might be important to you and some of them might not be. We are a little biased (just a little!) towards you purchasing our product for obvious reasons. That being said, we want whatever works best for you. In other words, if you're happy we're happy!
