Frequently Asked Questions
Maintenance, repair and replacement of fencing and decking are a major (and continuous) expense. Vinyl has become an increasingly popular long-term solution to these problems.
Vinyl never has to be painted or stained. The UV inhibitor stops yellowing, and the color goes all the way through the material so that scratches and gouges are almost invisible. The posts are also made of 100% vinyl and will never rot, shrink, decompose or rust like a traditional wood or iron fence post eventually will. While wood or iron does initially cost less than vinyl, that advantage is quickly lost because of the costs of painting, repair maintenance and replacement.
Decked Out offers a lifetime warranty, and therefore after installation the only thing you need to worry about is occasionally rinsing off your fence or deck.
