Vinyl Fence FAQ
How long will a vinyl fence last?
This is where vinyl fencing stands apart from wood and ornamental. PVC fencing will last a lifetime. The only thing you may notice is you may see the fence lose a little sheen over time.
Will vinyl fence fade?
Like vinyl siding and windows, vinyl fencing will lose a little of its sheen overtime. However, it will not fade. Modern vinyl fencing has a chemical formulation similar to sunscreen. It is designed to permanently reflect the sun’s rays and hold its colors.
How strong is vinyl?
Unlike wood or metal fencing, vinyl fencing has a degree of flexibility. However, the materials are engineered to be impact-resistant with a chemical formulation that will withstand a wide range of normal use. From rocks to balls to animals, your American Fence Company of Iowa vinyl fence will hold up to the challenge.
What is the cost of vinyl compared to wood?
Comparable. As a matter of fact, if you compare a typical #1 grade cedar fence and add the price of staining, vinyl fencing is more price competitive. Vinyl costs less than ornamental steel.
Will vinyl burn?
PVC has a flash point of approximately 900 degrees and will not easily ignite. Vinyl is classified as “self-extinguishing”.
Will vinyl fence break?
Vinyl fence materials can break if subjected to a direct impact, i.e. an automobile, ball, or a rock thrown from a mower. Under normal use, the fence will not break when installed properly. If your fence does break, call American Fence Company of Iowa. In most cases the rails and pickets can easily be replaced.
There are dozens of PVC products available across fence contractors, varying from recycled pop bottles to virgin vinyl.

You can be sure that these contractors have selected only quality products for your yard.
How do you clean vinyl fencing?
As with all outside products, your fence will become dirty when exposed to the elements. A mild detergent and water should be sufficient to keep your fence or deck rail looking new. For tough stains, Soft Scrub or baking soda works well. Simple Green and steel wool also works to clean stubborn stains.
Is the PVC graffiti proof?
Although not classified as graffiti proof, vinyl fencing is easy to clean and paint comes off with just a small amount of effort. It may require the use of a pressure washer or, in extreme cases, the use of paint thinner. 400 grit sandpaper can be used when some spots will not come off using the above methods.
Do you cement the vinyl fence posts?
Absolutely! All vinyl posts should be set in pre-mixed wet concrete. Not dry mix with water added later. This application generally does not provide 100% consistency in the concrete. Concrete should be placed under and around the fence post.

How does PVC hold up to weed eaters?
As with all PVC and wood products, direct contact with lawn and garden equipment can cause damage to the posts.
