Q. What are vinyl fencing and decking made of?

 

A. Vinyl fencing and decking are a Hi-Polymer material manufactured from a special high-impact, weather-resistant polyvinyl chloride compound. It is specially formulated for outdoor exposure where color and physical properties are important. The key ingredients are titanium oxide and impact modifiers. Make sure any product you buy includes a minimum of 10% titanium oxide.

 

Q. What are the main feature/benefits of vinyl fencing and decking?

 

A. Vinyl fencing and decking are maintenance-free materials that are durable, defy weathering, and never need sealing, or painting. The nonporous surfaces clean easily and resist stains and are weather resistant all year long.  The decking also stays cool to the touch in the summer sun so it is easy on your feet. 

Vinyl fencing and decking are an ideal solution for the enhancement of both residential, commercial and marine properties. As the technology continues to mature the products are becoming better and many are gaining a natural wood-look that makes them perfect for any property.

 

Q. Will the color of the vinyl fencing and decking change?

 

A. That depends. As with any product line there are Mercedes and there are Yugos. Our quality vinyl fencing and decking has a higher concentration of UV inhibitors than premium vinyl siding. The white, tan, gray and clay colors chosen are consistent throughout the product profiles. Our fencing and decking are non-porous and will not absorb moisture.

With the gaining popularity in “PVC” decking and fencing it is necessary to understand what you are buying and the differences in the products available on the market today. Issues like ultraviolet protection, color retention, impact retention, proper use of co-extrusion, the company behind the product, etc., are all items that affect the quality, are important to the end user, and longevity of the product.

 

It is important to have UV (ultraviolet protection) in vinyl products that are intended for exterior applications. The UV additives work like a window shade and protect the vinyl from breaking down, becoming brittle and discoloring. An industry standard is set at 10pph UV additive, be sure the products you are considering have the necessary amount. 100% of our fence and deck products are produced with the 10pph UV protection using TIO2, the best available additive for vinyl fencing,

 

Several companies are now offering color options. The proper technology is available today and can assure that a gray will stay gray, a white will stay white etc., but you must use that technology and not cut costs with cheaper color additives. Our products use only the very best proven color blends available today, and we are assured by certification that each rail car delivered meets our strict requirements.

 

In today’s vinyl industry the manufacturing process of co-extrusion is becoming very popular in reducing material expense. The co-extrusion process in and of itself is a proven process and is very successful if used properly. All too often however, it is used to hide an inferior, sub-standard base material that the manufacturer can purchase at considerable savings i.e.,  post industrial scrap and post consumer scrap are common among the materials used. The outer layer will then be a quality material that can effectively hide the sub-standard base material. All too often the base material is lacking the necessary impact and UV additives to assure an end user of worry-free performance.

 

Just like all products there are entry level, cheap products that will last a year or two and there are products that will stand the test of time.
