Residential Vinyl Fence and Fence Installation FAQ

If I purchase and install a vinyl fence in Rochester, how long will it last?

One of the big selling points to vinyl is that, unlike wood and ornamental fencing, it has been designed to last and last. The only natural “aging” you should notice with time is a slight loss of its natural sheen. What’s more, modern vinyl features a chemical formulation rather like sunscreen: to reflect sun rays rather than absorb them, and maintain its color. You shouldn’t notice any natural fading with your vinyl fence in Rochester, MN.

The vinyl products produced by this fence company in Rochester have been engineered with a chemical formulation designed to make it extra resilient to impacts, so it can withstand a range of normal wear and tear.

How cost effective is vinyl fencing compared to wood fencing?

The cost between vinyl fencing and wood fencing is comparable. In fact, compared to typical #1 grade cedar fencing – combined with the price of staining – vinyl fencing is more cost competitive. For the record, vinyl fencing also costs less than ornamental steel fencing.

Does vinyl fencing burn? Do Vinyl Fences Break Easily?

Vinyl is classified as a “self-extinguishing” material and has a flash point of approximately 900 degrees. It does not ignite easily, so it burns less easily than wood. As for breaks, vinyl can potentially crack if struck directly with a good deal of force, such as by a hurled rock or an automobile. However, our vinyl fence installers in Rochester, Minnesota will see to it that your fence is set up properly, so it shouldn’t break under normal conditions. If your fence does happen to break, simply contact American Fence Company of Minnesota. In most cases, your vinyl fence rails and pickets can be replaced simply.

When hiring vinyl fence installers in Rochester, MN and the Midwest, you should work with an established fence contractor with at least 10 years of experience. American Fence Company of Minnesota has over fifty years of experience. Our commitment to quality and long lasting products makes us the premier fence contractor in Rochester, so you can rest assured our team will select only the highest quality products for building a residential vinyl fence for your property.

How resilient is our residential vinyl fencing in winter?

Winters in the Midwest, especially up north here in Rochester, Minnesota and the surrounding communities, tend to be extremely cold. So it’s only fair to ask whether our fences made of vinyl are resilient and able to withstand the cold. During winter, vinyl becomes less flexible, though it shouldn’t break or crack unless subjected to unusually harsh, physical impact.

How do I clean my vinyl fence in Rochester?

Inevitably, your outdoor vinyl fence will be exposed to the elements and become soiled by dirt, mud, dust, etc. So what is the best way to clean your vinyl fence in Rochester, MN? We recommend using water with a mild detergent. For tougher stains, you can use baking soda combined with Soft Scrub. And how about the toughest, hardest to remove stains on vinyl fencing? You can try steel wool and Simple Green.

Vinyl is not classified as a graffiti proof material, but cleaning paint from its surface is usually easy with a pressure water or paint thinner. If you encounter tougher stains, try using 400 grit sandpaper.

Can vinyl fence posts be installed in concrete?

Yes. Please note that vinyl fence posts should be set in pre-mixed wet concrete placed under and around the post. Never install fence posts in dry concrete mix and add water later. This doesn’t provide consistency when the concrete sets.

Does American Fence Company of Minnesota have warranty on vinyl fences?

Yes. Even though vinyl fences are built to last and should not experience natural peeling, chipping, cracks, or rot, all of our vinyl products come with lifetime warranty. We have been a fence contractor in Rochester, MN for more than 50 years, so we make sure to provide warranty to our customers.

How resistant is vinyl to weed eaters?
