What happens when a brush/forest fire burns up to a vinyl privacy fence? Score this one Fence 1 Fire 0!
This white vinyl privacy fence outside of Tampa, FL was destroyed, but it stopped the fire from damaging the house and extinguished itself. Although badly scorched all of the fence was still there since it does not burn once the heat source is removed. It effectively stopped the fire which just burned all the brush and then went out. This is one of the benefits that has been engineered into the modern vinyl blends that we install. The fence rails and pickets warped, melted, and charred, and ultimately failed, but not before they diverted the fire from invading the back yard and house.
