Don’t buy a kit online from someone who doesn’t make their own kits. Very seldom will a cookie cutter kit work with uneven decks or attaching to uneven walls.
-If there is a problem with your order good luck going through a reseller to get help. -If your purchase price includes shipping you are paying too much because you are paying averaged costs for different areas and sizes. -Pictures may look good but ask for actual sizes of vinyl profiles used in fabrication, there are big differences. -Don’t buy products where there are exposed fasteners, screws or bolts, besides looking bad, you may have a significant rust problem in the short term future. -If what you are ordering can be shipped by UPS you can count on a lot of small pieces and a lot of screws and bolts. -If your order can be shipped by UPS, you can count on smaller sized structural members which will make the structure look flimsy and not strong enough. -Finyl Vinyl guarantees that your product will arrive in good condition.

10 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD BE ASKING YOURSELF
DO I REALLY WANT TO BE BUYING FROM A RESELLER? If you buy from an online retailer you are first paying too much, and second any problem with your order will have to be addressed and taken care of through two companies which takes a lot more time than just working directly with the manufacturer.
AM I PAYING THE REAL COST OF MY SHIPPING CHARGES OR AN AVERAGE? If your shipping charges are included in the price of your purchase, you are paying the actual cost of the shipping plus extra to make sure that the company sending you your project will cover their costs. We only bill you for the actual shipping costs from a quote at the time of purchase.
WHAT IF PRODUCT IS DAMAGED IN SHIPPING? WHO RESOLVES THE CLAIM WITH THE SHIPPER? Most online retailers limit their liability of damaged goods received by stating the shipper and you are responsible if the shipment is damaged. Finyl Vinyl stands behind our shipments that they will be received in good order.
HOW THICK ARE YOUR GATES AND HOW ARE THEY FASTENED TOGETHER? Our competitors make their gates 1.5” or 2” thick and fasten the corners with a pop rivet or a screw. Finyl Vinyl gates are 3.5” thick and are assembled with through bolts for a metal to metal connection.
DOES MY PERGOLA KIT COME STANDARD WITH METAL INSERTS IN ALL THE RAFTERS? Many pergolas come with no inserts in the rafters. Some come with or call for wood inserts, which exposed will not last even inside the vinyl. All Finyl Vinyl Pergolas with a rafter over 8’ long have metal inserts in them for added strength.
AM I LOOKING AT A FAKE PHOTOSHOPPED PHOTO OR ARE THESE REAL PHOTOS IN THE GALLERIES? Beware of online retailers that use computer generated images like many deck, arbor, and pergola kit companies. These structures might look good on your screen but look completely different when they arrive at your home.
WILL MY FINISHED PRODUCTS LOOK LIKE A SIDE WALL OF A TRAILER HOME WITH ALL THE VISIBLE SCREWS AND BOLTS? Any structure that is sent to you by a carrier such as a regular UPS truck will come in small boxes with tons of parts and LOTS of screws! Finyl Vinyl ships by common carrier so that we can ship larger and longer pieces, which have no visible fasteners, or screws exposed anywhere.
IS THIS GAZEBO REALLY A "VINYL" GAZEBO OR IS IT LOADED WITH PLASTIC OR WOOD THAT WILL REQUIRE MAINTENANCE OR WILL FAIL PREMATURELY? Many online company, sell “vinyl gazebos” that are hardly vinyl at all. They have wood roofs, steel bracing, and plastic parts that will crack. Finyl Vinyl gazebos are made of the highest grade vinyl that is guaranteed not to yellow, split, or crack. Our larger pavilions have metal inserts in the rafters.
THE PICTURE LOOKS GOOD, BUT HOW BIG AND STRONG ARE THE ACTUAL PIECES THAT THIS IS MADE WITH? Don’t just look at pictures; ask the sizes of the pieces. Online retails make 2x4’s look like 2x6’s and 3” posts to look like 5” posts. Our materials and designs most replicate conventional building material sizes and designs.
IS THIS STRUCTURE ABLE TO STAND UP TO WIND AND SNOW LOADS? If you buy a small flimsy pergola or arbor, don’t plan on it holding up to the elements or lasting long term. Our Pergolas, Gazebos, and Arbors have been installed all over U.S.A. and other countries and have withstood tornados, hurricanes, heavy snow loads, and hot dry climates.
