Fencing Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of care and maintenance will my wood fence require?

We recommend applying paint or stain every two years or as needed.

Should I paint or stain my fence?

We recommend applying a protective finish to the fence once it is installed. This helps to minimize the effects of weathering and to maximize the lifespan of your fence.

Will my wood fence crack or shrink?

The wood boards we use to build your fence still contain some moisture from when it was processed at the saw mill. Moisture keeps the wood from cracking or shrinking. After installation, your wood fence will shrink a little as the wood dries out in the sun. This is normal and part of the natural aging process wood experiences when exposed to the elements. Painting or staining your fence within 1 week of installation should minimize this process.

What is vinyl fence made of?

The base ingredient is rigid PVC (polyvinyl chloride) modified to provide superior impact strength and ultraviolet (UV) resistance. The formulation is similar to that of vinyl siding which has a 20-year history of providing long-term durability and structural integrity.
