Virgin Vinyl

For maximum strength and longevity, "Virgin Vinyl" is ideal for fence and railing products. Virgin Vinyl is the term used for a vinyl product not containing recycled materials.

Using recycled products that may contain impurities or lower grade vinyl can seriously affect the finished product’s resilience, impact resistance, and UV inhibition. The higher the quality of raw ingredients used, the better a product will look and perform.

UV Protection

Quality vinyl products are made using titanium dioxide, ensuring a bright white finish that will resist fading, even after intense sun exposure.

Limited Lifetime Warranty

Always verify that the vinyl fence or railing product you are considering comes backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Anything less may indicate that the manufacturer or installer is not confident in the quality of the product.
