How is Country Estate® polyvinyl fencing different from other PVC fencing?

The evidence is overwhelming. Country Estate Fencing is totally superior to all other conventional white fencing materials. It is both cost effective and free from traditional maintenance. In exhaustive laboratory and field tests on farms and at residential homes nationwide, satisfied customers confirm the economical and durability claims we make. Country Estate fence owners receive the industry’s best warranty, because it is a full 50 year non pro-rated warranty. All Country Estate Fence Products manufactured by Nebraska Plastics, Inc.conform to ASTM F964.

Country Estate Fence is constructed exclusively of solid wall polyvinyl compounds. Compare Country Estate Fence with its solid wall polyvinyl compounds to any co-extruded fence product and it becomes obvious that competitors are making co-extruded products rather than virgin solid wall fencing for no other reason than to increase their profits. Buyer beware! It is not always easy to recognize a co-extruded product. Some of it is produced with a white interior and the outside layer (capstock) is so thin it is difficult to detect.


What kind of maintenance does my PVC fencing require?

Country Estate Products are free from traditional maintenance. This traditional white fencing is impervious to deterioration from moisture, temperature extremes, ultraviolet exposure and the wear and tear from time itself. You’ll never have to scrape or paint your fence again, unlike any wood, metal or imitation polyvinyl fence. From the day your Country Estate Fence is installed, all traditional fence maintenance halts.


How does my PVC fence affect our environment?

PVC is an inert material that does not transmit pollutants into the ground or the air. The chemicals used to pressure treat wood fencing pollute the soil. Fumes from the paint applied to wood fences pollute the air. You do not have to cut down an oxygen producing tree to build a Country Estate Fence and with wood fencing, you may have to cut additional trees to replace and repair broken boards. Less fossil fuel is used to produce, install and maintain a Country Estate PVC fence than is used to grow a forest, protect it from insects, harvest and mill the trees into lumber, and paint and maintain a wood fence.

If recycling plastic materials is done wisely, it is a wonderful contribution to society. There are many disposable or semi-permanent items that utilize recycled materials appropriately. However, the quality of a “permanent” item such as Country Estate Fence should not be compromised. If the use of inferior materials causes a fence to be replaced before its time, the total fossil fuel fencing cost will be greater than the fossil fuels used in PVC fencing manufactured from pristine materials. Someday, when you no longer have a use for your Country Estate Fence, it may be dismantled and recycled.

Can you add more Country Estate® Fence at a later date?

White Country Estate Fence will be just as white in ten, fifteen, twenty, or more years. Many Country Estate Fence projects are spread over a number of years. New fence can be added to an old project and both the old and the new will be the same.

Will Country Estate® Fence enhance my property value?

A beautiful fence around your property enhances its value in many ways. It may provide privacy to your back yard or prevent uninvited guests to your swimming pool. You may simply desire a backdrop for your most beautiful flower gardens. Fencing gets all of those tasks done . . . with flair. If you decide to sell your residence, your Country Estate fence is ready to show, because it looks new all of the time.


Does Country Estate® offer their fence in any colors besides white?

Country Estate offers 3 colors: traditional white, almond, and gray. With that many to choose from, there is bound to be a color to match your residence.

How do I find a reputable fence contractor?

A good fence contractor:

1. Is well known-easily reached by phone or in-person.
2. Will never pressure you to sign a contract.
3. Doesn’t typically lead each sale with “Special Offers” or price reductions to use your installation in advertising.
4. Will not ask you to pay for the entire job in advance.
5. Will always honor the three days “Right of Revision” in writing as required by law.
6. Will strive to provide clear solutions for your requests.
7. Will show you a number of photos of previous installations and names of owners.
8. Is a member of American Fence Association, and adheres to the code of ethics.

The difference between co-extrusion and solid-wall extrusion is serviceable life. Country Estate Fence is constructed exclusively of solid-wall virgin polyvinyl compounds.

Co-extrusion produces a two-layered product which uses varying and differing grades of material in its inner and outer layers. From a distance, a co-extruded product may look like Country Estate, but if you examine a cross section, you will see the difference. An outer layer, sometimes as thin as a coat of paint, covers a compromised imitation of virgin polymers.

Vinyl-clad wood fencing products can be no better than the wood they hide. They remain subject to warp, swelling, and rot.
