Vinyl/PVC is warranted for life and does not require any paints, stains, maintenance or replacement.
PVC/Vinyl is made in all of the most popular lumber dimensions. This allows us to recreate the look of wood but leave the maintenance, and eventual replacement, behind.
- Fence-All only uses PVC/Vinyl products that are manufactured by the largest vinyl companies in the world.
- Our careful product selection process and in-house shop facilities allow us the opportunity to create styles that fit every home and every budget.
- Our large selection of vinyl profiles are each specifically cut to fit a particular Fence-All PVC/Vinyl Fence or Fence-All PVC/Vinyl Railing design.
- Our 25 year history with PVC/Vinyl helps us to know the proper sizes and proportions required to make better looking, longer lasting designs.
One of the most important ingredients in our PVC/Vinyl is the “impact modifiers” which make it as strong as standard wood.
In a typical backyard application, away from road-salt and snow plows, any of these styles can look great for more than 25 or 30 years with very minor maintenance (washing once or twice per year).
Crude Oil, Natural Gas and Salt are the main raw materials used in the production of Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC/Vinyl).
- PVC/Vinyl powder (Resin) is blended, with all the required ingredients, into a formulation that is called compound.
- Compound is fed into an extruder, with the proper amount of heat, pressure and mixing via screws in the extruder, and the compound becomes malleable vinyl.
- Malleable vinyl is then fed through a die in the shape of the finished profile and water is used to cool the vinyl into its final rigid state.
- Fence-All then cuts the profiles into their proper lengths for each design of fence or railing.
- Holes are routed into the posts and rails, so that pickets can be inserted into them, without any requirement for external (visible) brackets or hardware.
- These “fabricated” pieces can then be assembled into completed fence sections or railings.
Depending upon the styles of fence, different fasteners can be used. Vinyl channels, which are often used in the fabrication of Privacy and Semi-Privacy styles, are attached using screws with PVC/Vinyl screw covers.
Galvanized steel channels are included inside the bottom rail for many of our fence styles and/or some of our railing designs.
- Mildew feeds off of organic materials. Vinyl (PVC/Vinyl) is non-organic and therefore does not support mildew.
- Mildew that grows on Vinyl is actual feeding off of the organic materials (dirt) that have become embedded in or stuck to the vinyl.
- All of our PVC/Vinyl profiles have a high gloss, smooth, non-porous surface that makes it very difficult for organic materials or mildew to attach to.
- Non-chalking Titanium Dioxide (TiO2), which is included in the PVC/Vinyl compound, also helps to prevent most mildew growth.
- Only under very consistently damp conditions will the possibility of mildew occur and a mild solution of bleach and water will easily remove it.
- Using a durable grade non-chalking TiO2 in the vinyl (PVC/Vinyl) formulation ensures that there will be very minimal chalking.
- All vinyl fencing will chalk sooner or later, but with the superior protection capabilities of TiO2 this will be kept to a bare minimum.
- Chalking is the deterioration of the vinyl surface which exposes the TiO2 particles to the surface.
- The white powder can be wiped off from the surface for exceptional beauty over a full lifetime.
- All of our vinyl products are engineered to retain their beauty and good looks throughout their lifetime. The only reason to use paints on our vinyl products would be to change the color of the product. While we do not recommend painting, there are paints that are available for PVC/Vinyl.
- Painting or treating the product does void the lifetime warranty.
As long as your fence is kept clean, with a periodic wash from a garden hose, it will not turn yellow.
Any product will break when enough force is applied. However, every one of our PVC/Vinyl profiles are formulated using only the highest quality impact modifiers in precisely engineered amounts to ensure the greatest impact resistance available.
NO. Impact modifiers, although essential for long time performance of the product, cost money. One easy way for smaller “PVC/Vinyl manufacturers” to compete is to cut back on the amount of “expensive” impact modifier included within the product.
NO. UV Stabilizer, although essential for long time performance of the product, cost money. One easy way for smaller “PVC/Vinyl manufacturers” to compete is to cut back on the amount of “expensive” UV Stabilizer included within the product.
NO. Titanium Dioxide, although essential for long time performance of the product, cost money. One easy way for smaller “PVC/Vinyl manufacturers” to compete is to cut back on the amount of “expensive” Titanium Dioxide included within the product.
A dark green lawn chair which turns very faded light green, goes soft and droopy, and is thrown out after a year or two is a very good example of a PVC/Vinyl product which is made “more affordable”.
Deal with reputable companies, who have a history in PVC/Vinyl, and only deal with the larger vinyl manufacturers.
Imagine those faded lawn chairs, that have all gone soft, cemented 3 feet into the ground, all around your backyard after only 5 years.
Due to the costs involved in setting up to manufacture quality PVC/Vinyl, purchasing PVC/Vinyl resin at a reasonable price (a world oil commodity), and the costs associated with constantly measuring manufacturing tolerances, the manufacturing of PVC/Vinyl is best left to large manufacturers.
We offer all of our PVC/Vinyl products in a choice of White, Adobe, or Tan/Almond.
Due to the amount of UV Stabilizer included within the PVC/Vinyl compound, and because the UV Stabilizers are white, black is not available at this time.
No splinters, no tree sap, no inconsistencies, no knot holes, no slivers or nails.
Imagine the freedom of almost maintenance-free outdoor products. No painting, no treating, no sealing: just enjoying, enjoying, enjoying.
Unlike wood, PVC/Vinyl products keep their good looks year after year with just an occasional rinse with a garden hose. That’s the real beauty.
No. Wood posts covered with PVC/Vinyl will only last as long as wood posts. PVC/Vinyl posts set in concrete will last a lifetime.
Although there are times when an alternative might work better, the most cost effective method of installing fences tends to be to set them in concrete.
Yes. Outdoor PVC/Vinyl products are designed to have some “give” in them. The flexibility adds strength and keeps the fence from becoming brittle and breakable.
Yes. We have different caps to help compliment different homes and different fence styles.
Nothing. One of the beauties of PVC/Vinyl is that it does not rot.
