Q What is PVC?

PVC stand for Poly Vinyl Chloride.

Q Are there different kinds of PVC?
A
Yes. PVC is an extruded product. You will find products that are co extruded and mono-extruded. Co extruded products have inferior products mixed within the extrusion. A layer is usually placed over this product giving the appearance of it being the same color thru & thru. Our Country Estate Products are made from mono-extruded material that is UV tested to be 100% weather able.

A

Q I have heard that some PVC gates fall apart, why is that?
A
Some manufacturers use 1 3/4" x 2 1/2" framing that is glued in the corners. When a gate is made like that and it gets hit or slammed shut, there is the possibility the gate will break. Our gated are made of durable material, using 4" x 4" or 5" x 5" PVC uprights with an internal shock to keep the gate secured.

Q I'm so confused, other fence companies tell me they have the best PVC fence. How can I be sure I'm getting the best?
A

Pipe-Line Fence is the only authorized dealer in Suffolk & Nassau Counties for Country Estate Fence. In Western Nassau County & the 5 Boroughs, the authorized dealer is Schiano Bros, Inc. Some companies use different manufacturers. Some company's mix and match various components to make the style you want.

Q Is there a bar in the bottom of your PVC fence styles?
A
Some selections require that there is an aluminum bar placed in the bottom rail for strength. Some styles like the Lakeland or Hollingsworth have a heavy 2" x 8" bottom rail so there is no need for additional support. Added support is giving based on the size of the rails and the length of the selection. Whenever it is required, it will be aluminum that is used not steel. Any other materials other then aluminum will rust and bleed into the fence.

Wood Fence FAQ's
Q What is the difference between Cedar & Spruce wood fences?
A The main difference between cedar & spruce is longevity. Northern white cedar should last on Long Island about 10-15 years. Spruce should last about 7 years. Where or how it is installed can add or take away the life of your wood fence. A wood fence installed 2" off the ground will last longer then if it were sitting on the ground. Installation near trees, brush, sprinklers, ect. Can lessen the life of a wood fence. Even though spruce is cheaper then cedar, you will have to replace it in half the time.

Q What is the difference between #1 & #2 grade stockade?
A #1 is cleaner & smoother then #2. You will find knots on either, but on the #1 they will be tighter then #2. There is no difference in the life of the stockade. It is only cosmetic. Once it weathers, it can be difficult to tell the difference.

Q Do cedar & spruce look the same?
A
No. Cedar has a reddish/yellow tome. When it grays, it looks kind of silver gray. Spruce is whiter and when it grays it turns a dark gray.

Q Why does my wood fence lean after a while?
A
Generally wood fence lean is because of ground movement & wind. When a wood fence is installed, usually on wood posts, the posts are not cemented in. For various reason wood posts are not cemented. For example; they rot faster or snap at the ground during high winds. Some homeowners have their wood fence installed on steel posts. Steel posts can be cemented in the ground. Although you can't guarantee shifting because of ground movement, it is less likely to be noticeable with steel posts.

Q Why do I always have problems with my wood gate?
A

Q Do I have to face the finished side of a wood fence to my neighbor?
