What are your structures and fences made of?
Our vinyl products are fabricated using 100% virgin (PVC). To prevent deterioration by the elements our vinyl is formulated with Titanium Dioxide and impact modifiers. This assures that our vinyl will never rot, rust, chip or splinter. There is no wood in our structures or fences.
Will my vinyl product discolor and turn yellow?
No. To prevent discoloration by ultraviolet light our vinyl is formulated with a high percentage of Titanium Dioxide, this makes our vinyl color stable, our vinyl will not fade or discolor like conventional materials. Your vinyl product is backed by a “Limited Lifetime Warranty” against yellowing.
How Strong is Vinyl?
Substantial physical impact may damage your vinyl structure or fence. Vinyl is considerably stronger and more flexible than wood or other conventional materials. Normal everyday use will not damage your vinyl product; our vinyl is formulated with chemical impact modifiers that keep the material strong and flexible for the life of your structure. Our structures are further reinforced with Galvanized Steel Beams and post inserts.
Is your vinyl product safe for my children to play around?
Unlike wood, vinyl will not splinter. Vinyl has a smooth surface and all fasteners are internal and out of reach, you won't have to worry about injuries from a rough surfaces or protruding hardware. An added benefit of vinyl is that there are no harmful chemicals such as Arsenic, Lead and Creosote, which may be present in wood structures.

Should I purchase a freestanding patio cover or one that attaches to my house?
In most cases, patio covers attach to the house. Free standing units may be situated as close as a few inches to your home if the design of your home precludes attaching the unit to it. Free standing units usually are set away from the main building as a yard accent or a cover near a pool or remote deck. If you have questions regarding which unit to purchase, please call us at 877-933-6846 for help.
What colors are available?
Our vinyl products are available in white or tan. White is the most commonly ordered color since it coordinates with most any home color scheme. Darker colors are not available, as darker colors will tend to fade with time and exposure to the sun.
Do you offer custom size kits?

Does my vinyl product come with a warranty?
Your vinyl product is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty against rotting, warping, discoloration, cracking and peeling.
What are the advantages of a vinyl over a wood or aluminum?
Structures and fences that are made of traditional materials require ongoing maintenance. This includes treatment for wood destroying insects, corrosion, peeling paint, dry rot, cracking and material replacement. This requires a substantial investment of time and money; this can add up to many thousands of dollars over the life of a conventional structure or fence. The main reasons for making an investment in vinyl are: Great looks, easy installation and no maintenance. Vinyl has no natural imperfections; there are no knots, warped material, uneven surfaces or exposed fasteners. Maintenance under normal circumstances is as simple as rinsing with a garden hose to keep the product dirt free. With a vinyl you can enjoy a structure or fence that will look and stay attractive starting the minute that you finish installing it.
How does the cost of a vinyl kit compare with one made of wood?
The initial cost of a vinyl kit is somewhat higher than one constructed of common lumber such as Douglas fir. If you were to choose premium lumber like, Kiln Dried Cedar or Heart Redwood, the initial cost would be about the same. Unfortunately the cost of a structure or fence built of wood does not stop at construction. Wood structures and fences require substantial ongoing maintenance. This includes painting, every several years, wood replacement and treating for wood destroying insects. This alone can add up to thousands of dollars spent over the life of a wood product. Your vinyl product requires no maintenance, since it is not susceptible to the ravages of nature. This makes a vinyl structure or fence much wiser investment.
How safe is vinyl for our environment?
Our vinyl product are manufactured from 100% virgin materials, this makes them 100% recyclable in the event that you ever decide to remove them. Barring this, your vinyl structure or fence should outlast your home. Wood structures, unlike vinyl ones are treated in many cases with arsenic or paints and stains that may contain harmful chemicals. Treated wood in most cases is harmful to your health and the environment. Consider how many trees we would save if all outdoor garden structures and fences were made of vinyl. In short vinyl is not only a good choice from a construction viewpoint, but it is good for our environment.
