MAXTON FENCE ARCHITECTURAL FAQ’S
WHAT IS WPC FENCING?
WPC stands for Wood Plastic Composite, which is a type of fencing material made from a combination of wood fiber or wood flour and thermoplastics (plastics that become moldable above a specific temperature). The wood component provides the aesthetic appeal and natural look of wood, while the plastic component gives the fencing material its durability, resistance to moisture and insects, and easy maintenance.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WOOD COMPOSITE FENCING?
Durability: WPC fencing materials are resistant to rotting, warping, cracking, and fading, making them more durable and longer-lasting than traditional wood fencing.
Low maintenance: Unlike wood fencing, WPC fencing materials require minimal maintenance, as they don't need to be painted, stained, or sealed. They can be easily cleaned with soap and water.
Eco-friendly: WPC fencing materials are made from recycled materials, making them a more sustainable option for fencing.
Cost-effective: Although WPC fencing materials may be more expensive upfront than traditional wood fencing, they are more cost-effective in the long run, as they require less maintenance and have a longer lifespan.
Overall, WPC fencing materials provide a versatile, durable, and eco-friendly option for fencing that combines the aesthetic appeal of wood with practicality.
WHAT IS THE STANDARD SIZE FOR YOUR FENCES?
The MFP fences come standard 6 ft wide (71” center to center post) and can be as high as 7 ½ ft per section.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU HAVE A SPACE THAT IS NOT AS WIDE AS 6 FT?
The MFP fence panels along with top and bottom rails can be cut to accommodate a shorter width.
WHAT COLOR AND MATERIAL OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE?
MFP fence comes in a Charcoal Gray and Cedar color. The Corrugated Fence comes in a multitude of colors but Galvalume, Galvanized, Black and Charcoal are the only Double sided colors. Why is this significant? Because all other colors must be ordered with 4 sheets: 2 Bottom, 2 Top, back to back increasing the cost of the Corrugated Metal option. The Metal Fence boards are our premium choice and are quoted based on color choice, starting with Galvalume/Galvanized, Solid Colors, Textured Colors, Woodgrain and even Weathering Steel. The Solid colors are offered in 24 different colors, Textured in 4 colors and Woodgrain in 7 color choices.
WHAT STYLE OF FENCES DO YOU OFFER?
We can offer Full Privacy, Mid Trellis and Full Trellis in our Charcoal Gray and Cedar Composite material. In our Corrugated Panels, we offer Full Privacy only and in our Metal Panels, we can offer Full Privacy, Mid Trellis or Full Trellis style.
WHAT IS YOUR NORMAL TIME FRAME FOR READY TO PICK UP OR DELIVER ONCE THE ORDER IS CONFIRMED?
Our Composite with all the other accessories needed, are normally in stock. Just let us know your total lineal foot with style and with 1 weeks notice, we can have it packed and ready to go. This can vary slightly if gates are required. The Metal Panels are a special order item, specific to your color choice and style, so it takes about 3 – 4 weeks from the time the order is confirmed to receive it.
DO YOU DO INSTALLATIONS?
No, we don’t do installations, we are supply only but these fences are DIY friendly or if you prefer not to tackle the project yourself, we have preferred installers that we work with.
CAN YOU DO GATES?
Gates are custom with sizes ranging between 32” to 60”. Gates are quoted based on size, material choice and color.
ARE YOUR POSTS AND ACCESSORIES AVAILABLE IN ANY OTHER COLORS?
Right now all our post and accessories are in our standard black powder coated aluminum.
HOW ARE THE POST INSTALLED?
You have the option to mount with our post base if you have a solid surface like concrete or you can do a ground mount with either the posts in the ground or a concrete pile mounting the post base on the concrete piles.
WHAT IF I HAVE AN ANGLE THAT IS NOT 90 DEGREES?
We have a special angle piece that mounts onto the post and can be moved to whatever angle is needed.
HOW CAN I GET A QUOTE?
We are always happy to help you figure out the cost. If you aren’t doing the installation, we’ll refer you to one of our preferred installers as they’ll offer you a supply and install cost. If you are doing the installation yourself, we’ll ask you to measure out your space, send us a rough Bird’s Eye View sketch of your layout with any added comments, and we’ll be happy to quote accordingly.
WHAT WILL I HAVE TO DO TO MAINTAIN MY FENCE ONCE INSTALLED?
Glad you asked. Our MFP fence is maintenance free. No painting, no staining, only the occasional spray down with clean water and she will look as good as new. Why spend your time, painting and staining when you can be on your deck admiring your beautiful new MFP fence.
