Q: How is my fence put together?
A:Enduris PVC fences are typically assembled by routed holes. This provides a neighbor friendly product, free from unsightly brackets and fasteners, and avoids corrosion issues.
Our capped cellular Endwood luxury line of fences install just like a wood fence with steel reinforced rails mounted onto posts (bracketed or routed systems available) and individual pickets nailed into the rails for a truly resilient fence that looks amazingly just like real wood, yet have a limited lifetime warranty and a 30 year stain and fade warranty.
Q: What does neighbor friendly mean?

The result is a fence that is not only attractive to you but to your neighbor, and neighborhood as well. Your neighbors will appreciate your respectful fence etiquette when you opt for an Enduris PVC fence.
