Vinyl Fence Long Shot...


If anyone in the northwest Indiana, southwest MI, noertheast Il happens to have 4 panels (approx 70"x70")of the vinyl fence pictured let me know.

The wind fubarded the fence, house is going on the market in the next few weeks. Found out these were discountinuted a few years ago.

If I can't find panels I'm removing the fence, if someone want's/needs some panels and is willing to pick them up.

Best picture I have, calling the wife and having her send me a better pic would be futile.

How did the wind fubar it? We're thinking of putting up a vinyl fence on a property where the winds get heavy.

The wind alone broke 2 panels horizontals, snapped brackets on other panels that got blown around and broke.

Even on the post and rail versions, the rails blow out of the posts pretty regular around here.

There's a couple of HOAs in town that have the panel style, and there's usually some broken sections at any given point in time.

Last wood fence we did, we used 6x6 posts due to wind concerns.

They get a few years on them, the UV wreaks havoc. They get brittle.

Properly maintained, wood will last twice as long IMO.

Re: Vinyl Fence Long Shot...


This place gets heavy sun all summer, 90 -100 degrees is common, and high winds, dry climate, really hard on wood so if vinyl is worse now thinking of chain link with insert slats.


Good luck with your hunt!
