What is Structure Vinyl Fence made of?
The base ingredient is rigid PVC (polyvinyl chloride) homopolymer compound
as produced by Structure Vinyl Fence, with a high level of titanium Dioxide
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 twenty year history of providing long term durability
and structural integrity.
What is vinyl?
All of our product line is made from virgin polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and
other critical ingredients such as UV inhibitors and impact modifiers.
This gives the material long-term durability, flexibility and weather
ability. For more information about the benefits of vinyl.
What is virgin vinyl?
Quite simply, 100% new PVC (polyvinyl chloride). Structure Vinyl Fence
contains no recycled products. The term 'recycled' refers to post consumer
or post industrial material coming from the waste stream. Although PVC
is being recycled, we do not use the waste stream as a source.
Will Structure Vinyl Fence turn yellow?
No. Unlike the mass-produced plastic products you may be familiar with,
our product line is engineered to maintain its true color for a lifetime.
Our products contain 10% titanium dioxide (Ti02) as well as other chemical
additives which prevent ultraviolet degradation. Yellowing in vinyl products
is due to the sun's ultraviolet rays. This amount of extremely effective
UV inhibitor guarentees to hold up in the most extreme climates.
Will vinyl burn?
PVC has a flash point of 900° Fahrenheit and does not readily ignite.
Vinyl, therefore, is classified as "self-extinguishing".
How strong is vinyl?
Structure Vinyl Fence has been impact modified with a chemical compound.
The product formula has been tailored to provide optimum performance in
How do I clean my vinyl fence?
Under normal circumstances a simple rinse with a garden hose will be sufficient.
For more stubborn stains however, a cleaner containing a mild abrasive
suitable for fiberglass bathtubs is recommended.

Why do some companies sell 5" x 5"
.135" thick posts and Structure Vinyl Fence makes 5" x 5"
.150" thick posts?
.135" thick posts are cheaper because they use less vinyl and they
are not as strong. Structure Vinyl Fence does not handle .135" thick
posts because they are inferior and could cause problems for you in the
future - Beware of .135" thick posts, they are cheaper for a reason....
Can vinyl fencing break?
Structure Vinyl Fence uses a high content of impact inhibitors which prevent
breaking of properly installed fencing under normal use and conditions.
Of course, dramatic and direct impact such as being struck by a car can
cause damage, so it's good to know that all Structure Vinyl Fence components
are easy to replace.
Will fencing become brittle in cold weather?
While plastic materials do become less flexible when it's cold, Structure
Vinyl Fence components are designed to accommodate normal temperature
swings. The impact inhibitors we use to prevent breaking also help our
components withstand cold weather conditions.
Is vinyl safe for children and animals?
Yes! Vinyl has a smooth non-porous surface with no sharp edges or splinters.
Your children and animals are actually safer when compared to wood fences.
Vinyl has a tough surface and retains no moisture.
What about graffiti?
Most paint, including graffiti, can be removed from vinyl fencing with
relative ease using ordinary detergent and water. In some cases, you may
need to use a pressure washer, and for really tough cases, you may need
a paint thinner or dry cleaning fluid. If some spots still resist these
methods and cleaners, you can use 400 grit sandpaper to remove them.
Is vinyl more expensive than wood?
Initially, our products may cost more than wood (unless you're buying
premium wood, then they're about on par). But you'll never need to invest
any more time or money into them because they come with our lifetime warranty.
Wood, on the other hand, will need to be maintained for the rest of its
life span, whether painting, staining, repairing or replacing. And with
wood's cost increasing while its quality decreases (most of it's young
growth lumber), vinyl products have never been a more attractive purchase.
Do these products come with a warranty?
Yes. Structure Vinyl Fence is built to last and backed with a lifetime
limited warranty. Our warranty lasts the lifetime of the original purchaser.
