We take pride in going the extra steps that most contractors normally does not do in the industry. We want to give you a peace of mind that your project stays long lasting with little to no maintenance. We want to go out of our way and do things that are above the minimum requirements for fence installation by code. For example, a crucial step in maintaining your fence durability, we prefer to fill hollow posts with 20%-40% concrete depending on the project. Please be aware Some companies will make you believe that it's not necessary to fill it with concrete and give you many reasons to why it would be bad for your fence. This is another way to cut corners and save on labor and material. We approach each job as if it was our own.

At the end of each day, at the job site, we always make sure the work area is absolutely clean.
Why Choose Vinyl?
You may already know that not all vinyl is made the same way and it's true. There are cheaper grade vinyl being imported and may look the same, but there is a big difference. It all depends on how it was extruded.
Our vinyl is proudly made in the USA and it's the highest quality virgin vinyl for outdoor building projects. Our manufacturer, engineer and design the profiles we use to withstand harsh weather conditions, and are tested in winds up to 130 mph. They carefully mix the necessary ingredients including UV stabilizers that will make your fence look brand new for a lifetime.
We do offer several colors of vinyl if you like your fence to stand out from the rest and from more traditional white fencing.
The base ingredient is rigid PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) homopolymer compound with a high level of titanium dioxide <TiO2> pigment for long term, ultraviolet <UV> light resistance and impact modifiers for superior strength. The formulation is similar to that of vinyl siding and windows, which have a long history of providing long-term durability and structural integrity.
Do Vinyl Fence expand or become brittle in cold or hot weather?
It is normal for vinyl materials to expand and contract during temperature changes. Our designs and fabrication methods will allow for expansion and contraction during the installation process. As with most PVC products, vinyl will become less flexible in colder weather conditions. However, unless subjected to unusual impact, it can break or crack. Other wise, it is strong and long lasting.
Vinyl product requires a limited amount of maintenance. As with all exterior products, our fencing can become dirty when exposed to the elements. A mild detergent and water should be sufficient to keep your fence or deck railing looking new. Under normal conditions this maintenance is in the form of washing the fence to keep it looking new. For tough stains, “Soft Scrub” or baking soda works well. Simple Green and 0000 steel wool (super fine) also works to clean stubborn stains.
Although not classified as graffiti proof, vinyl fencing is fairly easy to clean and most graffiti comes off with just a little effort. Often, the graffiti can be removed with “Simple Green” detergent and a soft cloth. In more severe cases, you can use 0000 steel wool (super fine) either by itself or with Simple Green or, in extreme cases, use lacquer thinner and dry quickly with a soft cloth.
