I just returned from a trip to the New England coast and found vinyl fencing and vinyl railing almost everywhere. It's very popular there for good reason. The harsh winters and stormy weather take a toll on fences there and is not as kind and forgiving as many more mild climates. The weather proved clearly that all vinyl fence is not created equal so I brought back a few pictures as proof. There were many installations of Bufftech vinyl railings and vinyl fences that had battled the weather and held up beautifully which is why they have a lifetime warranty. There were others however that were clearly not up to the challenging test of time. Here are a few examples:
These are clear examples of people saving more money that they should by getting a cheapened substitute vinyl fence at their local Home Depot or Lowes. The ironic part is that these folks likely spent more money for their vinyl fence originally then they would have through us online buying a quality, lifetime warrantied fence in the first place.
