Polyvinyl chloride material has been used for home siding, decks, and fences since the 1970s. Decades ago, vinyl fences may not have performed as well as wood or metal under extreme temperatures. However, today’s vinyl fences do well in Northern Virginia winters, thanks to changes in the chemicals used to produce vinyl fences.
The best vinyl for extremely cold weather depends upon the cold spell’s duration and temperature. Vinyl becomes brittle when exposed to extreme cold, and different manufacturers have different tolerances for their materials. Northern Virginia does have some pretty cold winters; however, our bitter cold spells rarely last longer than a few days or a week. So how do you know if the vinyl fence you are buying in Northern Virginia will stand up to our winters?
Manufacturers generally do not provide cold tolerances for their materials to consumers; however, the experts at HAL CO Fence do have access to that data. They will use the weather tolerance data, combined with the height and the style of fence, to determine what brand of vinyl fence works best for your Northern Virginia home. You can rest easy that your purchase will be the right one, because HAL CO Fence offers a lifetime limited warranty on the vinyl fence you purchase for your Northern Virginia home.
