Poly Enterprises was back to help our customer replace an existing wood fence in Clinton, NY. This wood fence was badly deteriorating and had become a liability and safety hazard. All homeowners have a liability to protect any person from harm or injury that enters their premises and a badly maintained wood fence in Clinton could cause future issues for the homeowner.
A wood fence makes a great addition to any home, they provide privacy, security, add value plus the rustic look has appeal, but only if it’s functioning properly. If your fence is rotting, warping or falling down, it should be repaired and may need replacement.
It can be an eyesore but mainly a broken wood fence can be a means of escape for a pet or child, can let in unwanted pests, and will no longer provide the privacy it may have been intended for.
If your wood fence is rotting or decaying, even a small amount of deterioration can lead to the collapse of a much larger portion, leaving your yard completely fenceless. Initial signs of stress on your wood fence include discoloration, splintering and warping. If you don’t seal your wood fence and end up replacing damaged panels, it won’t look exactly the same as the remaining original panels.
A run-down fence is a turn off and gives people a bad impression. If your wood fence is aging and will not be able to hold up much longer, it’s probably time for a new fence.
After assessing the site and determining what fence product would work best for the application and style of the house, we chose our premium 6 foot high vinyl privacy fence with a gray tongue and groove paneling to match the color of the siding on the house.
Furthermore, because there was an in-ground pool in the back yard, we made sure to follow pool codes with our new fence…something we preach in all our posts related to pool fencing. We carefully removed the existing wood fence, and installed our new vinyl fence complete with a custom gate with stainless steel hardware and latch.
Everything came out great, and the fence style nicely complemented the house, and will add value and serviceability to the property for many years to come.

Poly Enterprises was back in New Hartford, NY to help our customer secure a new in-ground pool fence for their recently installed personal lagoon of sorts.
When we do in-ground pool fences we usually use the Fulton Vinyl fence because of the privacy it provides. We decided to utilize our popular 6 foot high vinyl Fulton privacy fence around the perimeter of their property on this project, but also utilized our 4 foot high vinyl Columbia yard fence to divide the yard and to give their children a safe place to play in a separate location from the pool area.
In past articles we have discussed the importance of an in-ground pool fence, mainly because it is New York State law but also because it provides the owner piece of mind knowing everyone is safe and secure from the pool when it’s not being used. An in-ground pool fence is so important when you have children because we all know you can never be too careful when it comes to things like that.
We were able to customize the bottom of the in-ground pool fence to follow the grade of the lawn, while maintaining the height of the fence to give them maximum privacy.
The majority of backyards have varying grade issues that can affect fence installation. While the rises and drops across a yard’s elevation can not always be seen we can easily detect it with a level string line by running along the yard for fence grade comparisons. This helps determine a proper course of action for fence installation based on the severity of a yard’s varied grade.
We installed custom gates complete with stainless steel hinges and latches to provide maximum security and longevity. Our customers were very happy with the finished product and can rest assured that their pool is secured and safe, and will enjoy their low maintenance fence for years to come.

Poly Enterprises was back in New Hartford, NY to help our customer secure their backyard. People prefer to have a backyard fence for many reasons.
Who doesn’t want solitude right in their own backyard? With the warmer weather heading our way a backyard fence is the perfect way to enjoy some privacy in the comfort of your own yard.
For Your Pool
Speaking of the warm weather and privacy, if you have a pool you are nearing that time when you just want to jump in and cool down. Aside from the privacy a backyard fence provides it will also give you the peace of mind that your pool is safely blocked off…it’s also the law.
Keep your pets in and more importantly, others out! A backyard fence is perfect for letting your dog just run loose on your property. Nobody likes walking the dog on a leash around the neighborhood or hooking up runners in the yard that can be an eye sore. A backyard fence can make your best friend a much happier one.
After assessing the site, and determining which backyard fence product and style would best fit their needs. We decided on our premium 6 foot high Fulton Vinyl privacy fence, and our popular 4 foot high Columbia backyard fence.
We replaced an existing wood fence around the hot tub with the vinyl privacy backyard fence, and went with the Columbia backyard fence between the patio and the garage. We also utilized the vinyl privacy fence along the back property line to help secure the yard. We were careful to secure the posts to a depth of 36 inches in concrete, and utilized bottom fence rails with aluminum stiffeners inside to prevent the rails from sagging.
We also installed a double gate complete with stainless steel hardware, and drop rod to allow for easy access. The install came out beautifully, and of course our customers were very happy with the completed backyard fence install, and will enjoy many years of worry free living in a safely fenced in area.
