Residential Vinyl Fence and Fence Installation in Cedar Rapids FAQ

Are vinyl fences in Cedar Rapids long lasting?

One of the major selling points of vinyl is that it is built to last — the only natural aging largely consisting of a slight waning in its natural sheen. Very rarely are decay-related phenomena such as rust and rot observed with vinyl fencing in Cedar Rapids. What’s more, it is resistant to most everyday impacts, so wear and tear is less an issue than it is with other forms of fencing. Here at American Fence Company, we instill our PVC products with a chemical formulation that functions similar to sunscreen, reflecting the sun’s rays rather than absorbing them. This is essential in helping to maintain the fence’s original color.

Vinyl fencing is also more cost competitive than both wood and ornamental steel fencing.

Does vinyl fencing change color with age?

Today’s vinyl fencing material features titanium dioxide (TIO2), an oxide that helps degradation caused by ultraviolet exposure. Another partnership of American Fence Company of Cedar Rapids’ is with Kroy Vinyl Products. This allows us to ensure 20-year warranty for PVC fences against discoloration and yellowing.

Does vinyl fencing burn and break?

Burning is not a concern when it comes to vinyl fencing, as it has a flash point of about 900 degrees. What’s more, it’s classified as a self-extinguishing material. Breaking and cracking can occur if the fence is struck by an abnormal amount of force — say, an automobile crash or a rock thrown by a lawnmower. In everyday occurrences, however, it is pretty resistant to wear and tear. What’s more, here at American Fence Company, we take care in seeing to it that fence posts are set properly and made with only the highest quality of materials.

Knowing how to clean outdoor items such as fencing is a no-brainer, given the constant exposure to sunlight, wind, rain, disrupted soil, etc. So how do you clean a vinyl fence? In most cases, you can simply use water in combined use with a mild detergent.

Tougher stains can be dealt with by using baking soda and Soft Scrub? Still not doing the trick? For those most stubborn, impossible to remove stains, you can try Simple Green and steel wool, or even 400-grit sandpaper. Paint thinner is useful for removing graffiti.

Should I install vinyl fence posts in concrete?

Yes. Vinyl fence posts are designed to be set in pre-mixed wet concrete installed under and around the post. Never install fence posts (of any kind) in dry concrete mix. Nor should you add water after the mix has been added, as it doesn’t provide consistency when the concrete sets.
