Here Are A Few Things To Consider Before Buying A Vinyl Fence

Are you planning to buy a fence for your house? Then, choose a vinyl fence. Purchasing a fence is a huge investment and should not be a spur-of-the-moment decision. Your fence should offer you privacy and security and add to your property’s aesthetics. While many fence products are on the market, and you will find plenty of cheaper options in retail and big box stores, investing in a high-quality customized fence is wise. Duramax Fences is a great choice for a high-end fence that can stand the test of time. However, before you decide on vinyl fences, here are a few things worth considering.

Regrind vinyl

Did you know not all vinyl fences are created equal? There are a few vinyl fences that are made with regrind. Yes, regrind is second-grade vinyl, and this material is recycled vinyl. While this might look like an eco-friendly solution, recycled vinyl has a shorter lifespan and is a low-quality vinyl fence. At Duramax, we manufacture high-quality vinyl fences made from 100% virgin vinyl and raw PVC resin. Our vinyl fences are highly durable, strong, and can withstand weather extremities.

Longevity of fences

Vinyl fences are indeed long-lasting, but not all of them. Unlike other ordinary fences, Duramax vinyl fences can last for 25 to 30 years without showing signs of damage or aging. Our fences are engineered keeping longevity in mind and come with a transferable limited lifetime warranty. Duramax Fences have the highest UV stability and weatherability, again a big factor behind its popularity. Since Duramax Fences have a longer lifespan, they are also considered stronger and more economical than other fences.

Installation requirements

Generally, most fencing manufacturers will advise you to get professional help to install a fence. However, such isn’t the case with Duramax. Our vinyl fences come in DIY kits with an installation guide. You can get Duramax Fence installed with the help of a local handyman or your gardener. The DIY fences are strong yet economical. By choosing to install Duramax Fences, you save 29% on labor and fencing as compared to other alternatives. 

Post Thickness

You should consider post thickness before buying a fence. If you live in a place susceptible to strong winds and the fence has to deal with weather extremities, thicker posts will be most suitable. At Duramax, we consider your location and customize the fence posts to make them thicker to enhance their durability. Posts are the main structure of a fence, and making them thicker ensures greater strength for the fence to stand up to extreme weather conditions. Many manufacturers produce vinyl fences using thinner materials, and these fences tend to warp, sag, and crack. That’s why Duramax Fences are higher in demand. We manufacture fences using thicker sheets of vinyl that will eliminate the issues you are facing with a thin vinyl fence. Our vinyl fences have thick walls and are made with special additives and stabilizers that make them strong, resilient, and long-lasting.

Style and design

While your fence might be functional, you should also consider aesthetics. The fence should complement the architecture of your house, and one must consider the outdoor features and landscaping while selecting a design or style for your fence. You should choose the style or design that will enhance your property’s overall appeal. At Duramax, we customize the fences as per your preferences, keeping in mind all the factors that make a great fence.

Privacy levels

If you want a privacy fence that will last for years, consider installing a vinyl privacy fence. It is because metal fences do not offer complete privacy, and wooden fences start rotting, splintering, and developing gaps and holes within a few months. Wooden fences are not completely weatherproof and show signs of damage within a few months. However, if you are not completely comfortable with a solid privacy fence, ask for a decorative semi-privacy fence that will partially secure your home without total isolation. Consider vinyl fencing from Duramax to completely block the views; in such a case, picket or lattice fences are a great option.

Titanium Dioxide for fences

Did you know the chemical compound titanium dioxide used for your sunscreen can also help the fences retain their color and stay strong under the sun’s harsh rays? However, not all vinyl fences have the same amount of titanium dioxide, which is why some fences fade easily while others last for years without any sign of aging. A higher concentration of titanium dioxide is needed to extend the lifespan of your fence and protect against discoloration. At Duramax, we manufacture fences with over 12 parts of titanium dioxide and potent UV inhibitors. Our fences do not warp in the summer heat and never fade, turn yellow, or lose their color. Our DuraResin vinyl formulation keeps Duramax Fences looking strong and new and protects against sun damage. Our fences can withstand the scorching rays of the Californian sun and last for decades without any repairs or replacements.

Non-toxic and pet-friendly fences 

If you are a pet parent and want to have a fence installed in your yard to keep the animals contained and safe, then Duramax Fences is the answer. Our fences are lead-free, non-toxic, chemical-resistant, and don’t splinter. Vinyl fences have no rough points and do not break with sharp edges, so your pets won’t be exposed to danger while playing in the yard. Our fences are impact-resistant and won’t break easily, even after heavy blows or high impacts.

Final Words

Investing in a fence is not a small decision; and you should not take things lightly. You should book a consultation with the experts to discuss your project in detail and then weigh the pros and cons to make an informed decision. A fence should be a lifetime investment, and factors like kind of material, post thickness, design and style, titanium dioxide amount, warranty, and pet-friendliness should be considered.
