Poly Enterprises was back in Utica, NY installing another of our popular vinyl fences. We were called in to replace an old dilapidated split rail fence which was falling down due to rot and decay. To avoid rot in this type of fence it is important to have a few reminders on your side.
Prevent Poor Drainage – Inspect the fence line during rainstorms and locate any areas where water collects around the fence posts.
Dig up the ground around the base of the post to a depth of roughly one foot with a shovel and mattock.
Mix quick-setting concrete and sculpt the concrete with a trowel so it slopes down and away from the post
Cover up the concrete plug by shoveling in dirt
Spray down the fence to remove dust, dirt, leaves and any other solid debris that you do not want trapped underneath the layer of paint or sealant.
Coat the rails and posts with a thick coat of water repellent or paint
We secured the sight making sure to have the underground utilities marked in the location of the new fence and removing the old fence. Once this was completed we laid out the area for the new vinyl picket fence taking care to run parallel to the road and locating the double gates in a convenient location. We then were able to bring in our drilling equipment to drill the holes for the fence posts, and set all the posts in concrete making sure everything was straight and contoured to the grade of the land.
The fence was then installed and the gates were hung using stainless steel hardware so as to keep them from corroding. As always the bottom rails of our vinyl fences are strengthened with aluminum stiffeners which keep the sections from sagging. Furthermore, at Poly Enterprises we take pride in cleaning up the jobsite, backfilling all the posts, and removing any excess dirt as need. Once the site was cleaned up we wiped down the fence making sure everything was clean and installed correctly.
Once again the new vinyl picket fence came out great and our customer was very happy with their new fence install.

Poly Enterprises was back in the village of New Hartford, NY on Oxford Road installing a new vinyl privacy fence. After removing the existing old bamboo fence we were able to clear out the property line to allow for the new fence to be installed. It is always important to have the underground utilities marked before digging, and to check the property boundaries before having the fence installed. Some towns and municipalities require the fence to be located at a certain distance off of the property line, whiles others allow the fence to be directly on the property line. Permits are also usually required for a new fence so it’s a good idea to check with your local codes department.
Privacy Fencing Reminders To Consider
- What kinds of permits do I need?
- How do I apply for a permit to build a fence?
- Is there any limit on the height of fences?
- What fees must I pay?
- At what point should I call for an inspection of my project?
- Special Neighbor Considerations
After drilling 12 inch diameter holes the fence posts were secured in concrete making sure the line was linear and evenly contoured to the average grade of the land. After giving the concrete ample time to set up we were back to install the fence sections and cleanup the site making sure to remove the excess dirt. As always we use only the highest quality material, with heavy duty rails, fence posts, and tongue and groove paneling and aluminum reinforced bottom rails.
The project came out great and our vinyl privacy fence will provide years of service and helped enhance the beautiful village of New Hartford, NY.

Poly Enterprises was back in Marcy, New York to help renew and revitalize an old wood deck. We had replaced the old wood pool fence around their in-ground pool the past year with our popular vinyl pool fence, but the house deck and another detached deck needed some help.
A rotted deck could cause numerous problems for the homeowner and could also create a risk with homeowners insurance and more importantly causes a danger to anyone who uses the deck.
After removing the old railing and wood decking, we secured and straightened the wood frame to accept the new treated wood decking. We installed the new decking, and then moved on to installing the new vinyl railing. To keep the same look as the pool fence, we had the vinyl railing manufactured with the same baluster spacing and baluster type. It ended up looking great and accented the pool area very nicely.
Next we started on the house deck which although not very old needed to be updated with our popular Newport vinyl railing. After removing the existing treated railing we installed our new vinyl railing with each section being manufactured to the exact size eliminating waste and installation time. As always, our vinyl railing is reinforced with aluminum so it will not sag over time. We completed the install with a custom gate installed at the top of the stairs to secure the area for our customer’s two dogs. The install came out great and our customer was very pleased with the results.
They will enjoy many years of service from their new vinyl railing system which as always is backed by a lifetime warranty.
