Our New Vinyl Fence

Our side fence was in desperate need of repair and looked like this! You cant see it from the photo but it was leaning into our yard and about to fall over.



Over the past month we have been doing research on who had the best deal on vinyl fencing and our lovely local Costco won! We were able to get a box of 3 panels for $199 a box and each box covered about 24' and needed two to get the entire fence done.  So our crazy behinds ended up scheduling our fence rebuild with our neighbor on the hottest weekend of the summer. We took off Friday from work and were done by Sunday morning. It was so hot that we were only able to work in the mornings and evenings! I felt so bad for Terry. He had sweat pouring off of him! He is such a hard worker.


The old fence was so rotten that it only took about 20 minutes to get all of the old wood panels down. The pressure treated posts that were cemented into the ground we just kicked over. It indeed was time for a new fence!


The reason it took us almost 3 days to complete is becuase you had to set each post in concreate and let it dry for 6 hours before you set your next post. Thankfully the heat was on our side for that process and we were able to set 3 posts in the first day.


Each hole had to be dug down 30". We had tons of left over dirt to fill in all the holes Cooper digs in our yard looking for moles :)


Progress:


And finally on Sunday morning we were able to put in the final panels and this is the final product!


We are so happy with our new fence! It just looks SO much better and cleaner. We are happy that we dont really have to do a bunch of maintence like a wood fence. We dont have to paint or stain it. Just maybe pressure wash it every few years and it will last a very very long time! We are very happy with it!

  4. Nice work! My friend found a company that did quality fencing in Kelowna and it probably looked just as good as this did. Great job!

  5. Wow great job, although I like the vinyl fences that insert right into the posts instead of brackets.

  6. Congratulations on your new fence! It looks really great. I think vinyl was definitely a good way to go since it lasts longer than wood fences. Simply cleaning it once a week will definitely keep you from having to do major repairs, and will aid its durability over the years.

  8. All sweat paid off! – Tell Terry that! :D The yard with the sunflowers and the new vinyl fence is such a beautiful landscape. I hope you can keep it that way, the color and all. Anyway, it is not advisable to paint a vinyl fence as that would take away its protecting ability against UV rays.

  11. Just saw this fence at our Costco. Looked really nice and the price is great.

    How accurate did you have to be? Distances between posts, height of posts, plumb. Any wiggle room if not perfect?
    Are the posts hollow or is there a steel support in them? Are the brackets for attaching the walls already installed on the posts?
    Anything details you can provide would be most appreciated.

    1. I am looking to potentially use this fence. The vinyl post covers are hollow, so you would have to add your own posts - 4x4 wood or steel - Some people only put the wood/steel in the gate, corner and end posts.

  12. We have this fencing from Costco and love it. We now need a gate and a section. It is now nowhere in sight. Does anyone know the actual companyname? Maybe dealing online is an option.
