Answers to your most common Illusions Vinyl Fence questions.
ARE THE PRODUCTS MADE IN THE U.S.A?
Illusions Vinyl Fence is American-Made. Why does this matter?
Assurance of quality: One of the primary benefits of choosing American-made vinyl fence and railing is the assurance of quality. American vinyl manufacturing standards are some of the highest in the world, ensuring that products made in the U.S. meet strict quality control measures. The materials used in the production are equally as important as the production itself. When vinyl fence or railing is made in America, you can be confident that it will meet your expectations for quality and durability.
Strict quality control measures: American manufacturers are subject to strict quality control measures, ensuring that products meet the highest production standards. All Illusions and EverStrong brand products, for example, meet or exceed ASTM F964 specifications.
Trusted brand names with strong warranties: Many American-made vinyl fence and railing products are produced by well-known and trusted brand names that offer warranties on their products’ longevity. This gives contractors and property owners added peace of mind.
Supporting the local economy: When you choose American-made products, this results in a positive impact to the economy. You are supporting local businesses and investing in the success of your community.
Creating jobs: Choosing American-made vinyl fence and railing creates and sustains jobs, both where the products are manufactured as well as with local businesses who work on the project. More and more municipalities and government agencies are specifying domestically produced and sourced American-made materials for installation.
Environmental responsibility: American manufacturers are subject to strict environmental regulations which helps to minimize the impact of production on the environment. Additionally, 100% Pure Virgin Vinyl American-made vinyl fence and railing products like the Illusions line are more likely to be recyclable at the end of their lifespan, making them a more environmentally friendly choice.
Customization and specifications: Vinyl fence and railing products made in the U.S. offer greater customization and availability options. With a wide range of styles, designs, and colors to choose from, contractors can easily find a product that meets their project’s specific needs and preferences.
Quick availability: American-made products are typically available more quickly, as they do not have to be shipped from overseas, meaning you can receive your order faster and start your project sooner. For example, most styles of Illusions Vinyl Fence products are in stock and ship immediately when the order is received.
There are many benefits of buying American. The list above is just a closer look at some of them. From quality assurance to environmental responsibility, American-made products provide contractors and property owners with peace of mind and a range of options to meet their specific needs and preferences. Whatever your project, American-made vinyl fence and railing is the best choice for a durable, high-quality, and eco-friendly product.
HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU’RE GETTING AN AMERICAN-MADE PRODUCT?

HOW DO I CLEAN MY ILLUSIONS VINYL FENCE? Although one of the benefits of vinyl fence is that it is very durable and meant to last longer than natural materials, it could be easily damaged if the wrong cleaners or washers are used. For normal maintenance, a non-abrasive cleaner like a car wash soap is recommended. This should be used with a soft cloth or brush as you would use to wash your car.
WHY DO FENCES OF THE SAME COLOR OR WOODGRAIN LOOK DIFFERENT IN SOME PHOTOS VERSES OTHERS OR IN REAL LIFE? While we always try to show the truest representation of the products online or in print, there are occasionally differences between the look of the actual product in the field and what you see on your screen or on the printed page. Many things could cause this. For instance; Sun vs. shade, paper stock, camera white balance, printing ink, monitor settings, etc. All of these can affect the final printed or electronically viewed image. It’s always best to get a sample of the actual product prior to your purchase so you can be sure it’s correct for your installation.
ARE THERE TWO DIFFERENT QUALITY GRADES OF ILLUSIONS VINYL FENCE? (I SAW ON A BLOG ONLINE THAT SAID THERE IS A RESIDENTIAL AND A COMMERCIAL GRADE.) We get this question a lot due to an incorrect blog that Google likes to pull up when searching for Illusions Fence. Illusions Vinyl Fence does not have two different quality product lines. We only make one high quality product. What we do have are different color/woodgrain choices. That’s it. Those different color and woodgrain choices can affect the pricing, but it is the same product underneath the color that’s being used. Again, THESE ARE ONLY A FINISH over the top of the Classic Series profiles. It is not a structural difference in the product.
ARE THE GRAND ILLUSIONS PRODUCTS DURABLE? The process Grand Illusions Color Spectrum and Grand Illusions Vinyl WoodBond go through bonds the color to the fence at a molecular level. It’s similar to the finish on a car. This means that for the color to come off, the fence would have to be maliciously scraped with a sharp object, much like a car would. Everyday use does not damage the products. The installers who use our products know that the same type of care should be taken installing Grand Illusions Vinyl WoodBond or Grand Illusions Color Spectrum products as when installing a color ornamental aluminum fence or a color chain link fence. If something does happen to occur, a simple touch-up marker and/or bottle is supplied with every order. Illusions materials are a custom blended mix of stabilizers, impact modifiers, processing aids, and pigments. Long term weathering studies have shown these products tin stabilized, acrylate modified formulations with high levels of titanium dioxide (a pigment and UV light screener), result in the best retention of color and toughness. Our vinyl has the industry leading standard of 10 parts per 100 TiO2 (titanium dioxide) to give it the longevity and performance of a lifetime product. The 100% Pure Virgin Vinyl in Illusions Vinyl Fence products provide structural integrity. In a nutshell, all Illusions Vinyl Fence and Railing products are built to last. When properly installed, Illusions caps should remain on, Illusions latches are sturdy and strong, Illusions Uni-Weld Gates all come standard with the a truss system, Illusions Assembled Gates have an incredibly strong frame and proprietary , and if the fence is properly cared for, it should last for years and years.
