While the initial cost of your Bufftech vinyl fence is higher than for a wood fence, that’s a one-time cost. Over the lifetime of your fence, other costs of wood fences are eliminated, reducing your cost of ownership over time. You’ll never have to paint or stain your PVC fence or replace rotted posts, panels or boards.
Depending on the style of fencing you choose, Bufftech vinyl fencing can be used around swimming pools in most communities. Before buying any fencing for swimming pools, check with your local jurisdiction for details about requirements. Then choose the Bufftech style that matches or exceeds those requirements.
Wood fences require regular maintenance and repairs, including painting, staining and replacement of boards and posts. The finish of a Bufftech PVC vinyl fence resists staining, discoloration and shrugs off rain and sunlight’s UV rays. If your fence does get dirty, though, simply hose it off to remove loose dirt or dust. For more stubborn dirt, apply a non-abrasive liquid cleaner and wipe it down. Every Bufftech fence is a low-maintenance fence.
Bufftech PVC vinyl fencing materials from CertainTeed have been tested in Accelerated Weathering Tests. The results show that these fences stand up superbly to everything Mother Nature can dish out. Bufftech fences are built to hold up for a lifetime of exposure to weather conditions and retain their beauty and strength.
Sunlight contains ultraviolet light, which can cause fading in many fence materials over time, especially wood. Bufftech vinyl fencing from CertainTeed resists fading or yellowing from UV exposure. It contains Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) throughout the vinyl in a 10 parts to 100 ratio. This reduces the effects of UV light and inhibits fading and yellowing.
Wood fences seem to attract horses to chew or crib fences. That’s hard on the fence and bad for horses as well. With a Bufftech PVC fence, cribbing is far less likely, due to its smooth surface, and toughness. It’s just not as attractive to your horses. If necessary, a “hot wire” can be added to your fence easily to further inhibit cribbing.
Every Bufftech PVC fence is designed to last a lifetime. A limited, transferrable manufacturer’s Lifetime Warranty covers your panels, posts, pickets and gates. Properly installed, your new fence is a permanent enhancement for your property.
