You’ve heard of the phrase “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. That statement rings true in many aspects of life but it definitely applies when shopping for vinyl fences. When shopping for vinyl fences, the important features that lend your vinyl fences their strength and longevity may not be obvious. Fortunately, the experts at SWi Fence are here to guide you through selecting the best vinyl Wyoming residential fence. In this blog post, we’ll give you all the details you need to make sure your new vinyl fence means comfort, security, and durability!

SWi Vinyl Fence vs. Big Box Store Vinyl Fence – A Clear Choice

Vinyl Post Thickness for Wyoming Fencing

One of the most important parts of your vinyl fence is the posts – they hold your vinyl panels or pickets in place and lend stability to the fence when they are placed into the ground. Needless to say, the strength and construction of your vinyl posts are critical to the overall strength and longevity of your vinyl Wyoming residential fence. 


All vinyl fences have hollow posts, but the thickness of the walls of the posts can vary depending on the quality of the material. Big box stores offer vinyl fences at cheaper prices by selling vinyl posts with thinner walls. Thinner walls are more prone to bending, cracking, breaking, and weathering. Here at SWi Fence, we source all of our vinyl fencing materials from National Vinyl Products, a premier vinyl distributor.


Because we are committed to high-quality materials, our experts recently filmed a video where we compared the wall thickness of our vinyl fencing materials to vinyl fencing materials from big box stores. We’re proud to say that our vinyl posts had a thicker wall than vinyl fences from big box stores and that our posts exceeded the minimum thickness – meaning our manufacturer, National Vinyl Products, is unwaveringly committed to quality! When you’re looking for a long-lasting vinyl fence, the choice is clear! 

We Only Use Virgin Vinyl for Wyoming Residential Fences

While many vinyl fences look the same – classically beautiful with a sturdy appearance, their internal compositions may be incredibly different! Big box stores and other companies cut costs by using vinyl with an inferior composition. Lower-quality vinyl fences contain less titanium dioxide and other important chemical compounds that are critical to vinyl fence longevity. Titanium dioxide, for example, prevents vinyl products from yellowing and becoming chalky in the sun. 


To cut costs, big box stores will sell what’s known as regrind vinyl. Regrind vinyl is recycled vinyl that is made by recycling vinyl from multiple sources of varying quality. Therefore, when you purchase big box store vinyl, you have no idea if your vinyl fence is truly protected from the elements! Invest in high-quality vinyl Wyoming fencing, and only work with companies that use virgin vinyl, like SWi Fence! 

Assembly Methods for Superior Strength 

Your fence’s assembly method is as important as the quality of the vinyl itself! Our premier vinyl fences are installed by sliding and securing the rails inside of the vinyl posts, ensuring that your fence stands strong even in the face of significant winds or rain. 


We always advocate for the use of rail locks, which is an additional piece of vinyl that is placed inside of your vinyl posts and connects the adjacent rails. Rail locks keep your fence in one piece under harsh weather conditions without changing the appearance of your fence from the outside! 


However, Some vinyl fences are assembled using brackets or small, additional pieces of plastic that hold the railing and post together using a screw. If you select a vinyl fence that is assembled using brackets, you have to rely on the strength of a screw to hold the railings to the posts and keep the pickets or panels securely inside of the railing. This method is significantly more likely to fail and is much weaker than our routed rail system. 

Our Vinyl Wyoming Residential Fences Come With a Premier Warranty

Everyone wants to imagine that their new vinyl fence is going to look perfect and that installation will be a breeze! Fortunately, customers that install fences with SWi Fence know that our expert installers take every precaution to ensure that our projects are finished without issue. Additionally, all of our products come with a manufacturer’s warranty. 


On the other hand, vinyl fences purchased from big box stores may or may not include a manufacturer warranty! Not only will our warranties protect your fence from any issues that may arise, but they will also give you peace of mind knowing that the top-rated fence company in Wyoming has your back!
