Why Choose Vinyl for Your New Fence?
Galaxy Fences FAQ’s for Vinyl Fencing
Q. How is vinyl fencing put together?
A fence can be mechanically fastened together using screws to assemble the posts, rails and pickets;(which is not a preferred method) or, it can be routed and the pieces are inserted into holes equally spaced from the edges so the fence is "neighbor friendly" or identical in appearance from either side. (Through the rail construction and routed post mounting is much stronger than the mechanically fastened method)
Q. Will my fence turn yellow or mildew?
Your fence has a high level of UV inhibitors (Ti02) which prevents the sun's rays from turning your fence yellow. You must keep your fence clean as grime from the elements can turn many colors. Mildew grows on organic materials and vinyl is a non-organic material. Mildew, will, however, attach to dirt if the vinyl is not cleaned.
Q. Does vinyl expand or contract?
Vinyl will break with a significant impact such as an automobile. Very cold weather also makes vinyl slightly less flexible and more brittle. Vinyl expands and contracts because of heat, unlike wood which expands because of moisture. We will allow for expansion or contraction in the installation process.
Q. Does vinyl have a warranty?
Yes, a limited lifetime warranty which is transferable.
Q. How do I clean vinyl fence?
With mild detergent and water. More stubborn stains can be removed with Simple Green.
Q. What will a weed eater do to my vinyl fence?
Direct contact with any lawn equipment can damage vinyl, aluminum or wood products. Use caution when operating equipment that could scratch your fence.
Q. Could my fence crack, rot, chip or peel?
No, unless abused.
Q. What is the cost of a vinyl fence compared to a similar design in wood?
The cost of material is approximately two times that of wood. However, you must consider installed cost. There is no filling, sanding, painting, especially on railing products. And, low maintenance is required for a lifetime. Just spraying and brushing with soap and water will keep your fence looking good for a lifetime.
Q. Can vinyl be used for deck or front porch applications?
Yes, when properly designed, vinyl products can make a very stable railing system.
Q. What is chalking?
All vinyl will chalk. Chalking is the deterioration of the vinyl surface, exposing Ti02 particles to the elements. The white powder wiped off vinyl profiles is Ti02 particles mixed with deteriorated vinyl. Good white vinyl is actually designed to chalk slightly to help keep it clean.
Q. Can vinyl be painted?
Yes, with a water base paint. However, this will void the manufacturer's warranty on your product. Painting your vinyl fence a dark color can make the vinyl distort and warp.
