Homeowners and businesses in Minnesota are rushing to install high-quality vinyl fences around their property. As a matter of fact, the demand for PVC fences nationwide has skyrocketed over the years. Customers are continually discovering the distinct advantages this material type has over more traditional forms of fencing such as wood and metal; and as the top fence contractor in Rochester, MN, we have gone the extra mile to deliver products and services that outshine the competition.

So, why the increase in demand for vinyl fence panels in Rochester, MN? The core reason why more and more people opt for PVC is that it requires less upkeep and maintenance compared to other fence types. This stems from its inherent qualities.

Water and rust resistance

Water—whether it derives from rain, melting snow and ice, morning dew, overspray from sprinklers—has the potential to compromise the quality of certain materials. Wood fence panels, for instance, unless they’ve been properly sealed, absorb fluids that then remain trapped inside the fence’s foundation. When winter hits and the temperature falls—and here in Minnesota, the temperature really falls—the water turns to ice, expanding inside the wood and causing it to warp. (This is what creates those unsightly knots and cracks often observed in wood fences.)

As for metal fences, unless they’ve been carefully fabricated for corrosion resistance, water has the potential to cause rust. Which has the potential to not only compromise fence integrity but also create health risks for users: e.g. kids trying to climb the fence.

This is where our vinyl fencing in Minnesota comes into play. PVC is a water-resistant material; even during a heavy rainstorm, water simply cascades off the sides of the fence. Here at American Fence Company of Rochester, MN, we engineer our PVC for supreme rust resistance.

Whereas most wood fences inevitably require replacement over time, vinyl is designed to last a lifetime. Indeed, the only noticeable age-related change you should notice is a reduction in the PVC’s natural sheen. As the top fence contractor in Rochester, MN, we manufacture our vinyl fence panels with TIO2 (titanium dioxide), which helps limit damage caused by ultraviolet exposure. (Think of it as a permanent sunscreen for your fence.) So you shouldn’t experience yellowing in your fence—and if you do, American Fence Company issues a 20-year warranty to cover discoloration and yellowing.

Superior damage resistance

Although not as impenetrable as steel, high-quality PVC doesn’t suffer damage easily. It takes an exceptional amount of force to actually break the surfacing; so unless someone plows a car through your vinyl fence panels, they should continue standing. Even in the fierce grip of winter, the only noticeable change should consist of an increase in flexibility—and even then, an unusual amount of force is typically required to inflict actual damage. Also: vinyl fencing has an advantage over wood in that it’s a self-extinguishing material—its flash point being approximately 900 degrees.

In the event that you need to replace parts—or even entire panels—simply contact us here at American Fence Company of Rochester, MN. Our services include maintenance and repair, in addition to fence design, fabrication, and installation.
