PVC (polyvinyl chloride)

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a synthetic resin made from the polymerization of vinyl chloride. Second only to polyethylene among the plastics in production and consumption, PVC is used in an enormous range of domestic and industrial products.

PVC is a common, strong but lightweight plastic used in construction. It is made softer and more flexible by the addition of plasticizers.

PVC fences are UV resistant and will keep their colour. They are also resistant to warping, rotting and corrosion. We use only the best PVC fences which means depend on the supplier the warranty can range from 20 up to 50 years.

Today, PVC fencing has advanced over the years. This technology has excelled and made it equal or in some cases, cheaper than wood.

Despite the fact that cellular PVC decking will usually cost more initially than its wood and composite counterparts, its low-maintenance and longevity make it the best.

PVC is inherently recyclable due to the fact that it’s thermoplastic, it can be reheated, melted and used again.

Tuf-Fence is the preferred choice for fence contractors and installers in the Ottawa region since 1999. Constructed with H-posts along with rails and boards that are strongest and most sturdiest in the industry. These flexible fences offers homeowners the look that fits their custom needs.

The most familiar and popular color choices for fencing are White, Tan, Adobe and Green Teak. However, people often ask about other vinyl fence colors that are available. Certain suppliers have many OTHER COLORS CHOICES.

Usually there is nothing to maintain the fencing. It’s as easy as rinsing with water & soap once or twice a year, depending on the elements affecting the cleanliness of the fence.

PVC is a contractor favorite because it is easy to work with and is resistant to biological and and will never breakdown. On average, plastic decking has a similar lifespan to composite decking and can last nearly 20-30 years.

PVC fences are UV resistant and will keep their colour. They are also resistant to warping, rotting and corrosion. We use only the best PVC fences which means depend on the supplier the warranty can range from 20 up to 50 years.

AMCO, Product Specifics

Our two major manufacturers are Homeland Vinyl Products Inc and Certainteed.

These are made exclusively from virgin PVC at standard heights of 5', 6' and 7'.

(Tuf-Fence, Gorilla Fence & Gorilla Decking are produced by Homeland and these products we are stocked on a regular basis.)

AMCO distributes the most familiar and popular fencing and decking choices from Homeland, featuring colors such as Adobe, Mocha Walnut, Chai Gray and Green Teak.

Its Ontario building code compliant with a lifetime product warranty. Its water shedding technology will make sure the PVC never rots, splits or decays, whilst offering the strongest dent resistant surfaces. These are designed to keep the space below the deck drier with air cooling in mind, hidden fasteners and easy installation. These features protect the wood frames from rotting and will prolong the lifespan of the deck.

Tuf-Fence has been on the market for over the past 20 years with proven residential grade fencing with a variety of styles and colours (Adobe, Tan and White).

These can be built and archived to the standard heights of 5', 6' and 7' tall.

Products are shipped from our facility located at 129 Tansley Drive, Carp, Ottawa. We currently have a distribution storefront for local customers and an online store to purchase items.

PVC does cost more than wood at the outset, but it lasts longer and requires no maintenance, which may offset the higher costs in the long run.

PVC decking is popular because it’s virtually maintenance free. This type of material is extremely weather-resistant, easy to clean, and neither will ever splinter, warp, cup, or rot. Nor does it require sanding or staining.

PVC can be a great product to consider if you want to build a fence for privacy reasons. Any type of fence can provide a barrier to entry between your home and the outside world, but those made of aluminum or wrought iron offer greater security than other materials.

We supply and sell premium gate hardware for our fence gates, we offer self closing adjustable stainless-steel hinges and post latches. We carry fencing hardware from leading manufactures that make all components from sturdy metal with functional designs.

Chain-link fences with a galvanized finish that doesn't rust are the longest lasting fences. All other components of the fence are made of steel and are also galvanized, so there is relatively no maintenance.

When the temperature changes suddenly, PVC decking can expand and contract.

AMCO does not guarantee or ensure quality of worksmanship from Independent contractors and/or by our clientele. You are solely responsible per selecting the proper installer for your projects.

To meet the demand of our customers, we don’t have an order minimum. We offer a wide range of products and types from businesses to DIY homeowners.

Shipping and Delivery

We prefer to simply offer the lowest prices on our products. Our pricing is compared against our competitors to make sure our customers are getting value for their money.

Local delivery with 1-week notice may take 3-5 business days, Ontario wide up to 10 days to receive order. Sometimes this time may be greater due to certain circumstances, however, it is our goal to ship all products as quickly as possible after receipt of order.

We always try to ensure that all of our customers order and receive the correct products. If you received the wrong product or it arrives damaged, we'll send the necessary replacements.

However, items returned for reasons other than these may not be refundable. All sales are final and cannot be returned or exchanged once an order is placed by the customer. 

Our PVC fencing and decking products have a manufacturer’s limited warranty against peeling, flaking, blistering, rotting, and corroding, if it is installed under normal conditions.
