We sell pallets to a vinyl fence manufacturer down our street. His vinyl is
6 and the Lowe's vinyl is 4. (I don't know the measurement increment, maybe
mil) Anyway, just like any of the other big retailer, Lowe's sell something
that LOOKS about the same, at a cheaper price, but it is inferior as to
quality, but most people only shop for price. I looked into vinyl fencing
and I'm not really impressed. It looks flimsy and I find that it is flimsy.
An advantage, is it all pops together, so if a lawnmower hits it, if it
doesn't crack, you can just snap it back together. The uprights can be set
just in the ground or in cement. The gates are pretty lightweight, not very
secure to me. They are expensive, down south here, they tend to mildew and
need washing to keep them fresh looking. I think it is more of a decorative
fence than functional.
Just my .02.
