Frequently Asked Questions

 

  • Can I eliminate the back wall of the shower?

    Yes! If you would like to eliminate the back wall of the shower, you may simply leave it off. Please be aware that you will have some small screw holes visible. However, you can always patch them up with a bit of the vinyl glue that comes with your shower kit.

    Can I switch the shower opening around to the side instead of the front?

    Yes, you can position your shower opening at any side of the unit if that is your preference.

  • Can I put the Wilimington Privacy Screen sections in a straight line instead of a right angle?

    You may, but please note that the no-dig stakes are designed to work only when the screens are installed at a right angle to each other. As such, if you wish to install the privacy screens in a straight line you must cement the posts into the ground to ensure the screens are stable and secure, much like you would traditionally install a fence. We would also advise that you bury the posts as low as possible into the ground so the bottom rail is either touching the ground or very close.

  • Can I curve the Madison Vinyl Fence?

    The Madison Vinyl Fence includes joiner clips that allow you to install the panels next to each other at virtually any angle you desire. Please note that while the fence can be installed at different angles, each panel is a straight section that cannot be curved.

    Can I cut down my fence to shorten the width?

    Yes, you may cut down your fence if you need it for a shorter application. Any saw (manual or motorized) with a fine tooth blade can be used. There are two considerations you need to be aware of:

    1. You obviously cannot shorten more than the built-in posts will allow.
    2. The horizontal rails have end caps that are glued into the rail with a special PVC cement, so by cutting you will effectively be cutting these off. Although it will not affect the structural integrity of the fence, your end rails will become hollow. We currently do not stock additional end caps to fill the gap.

  • Is it possible to mount my privacy screen on a surface?

    We recommend purchasing stainless steel or galvanized L brackets at your local hardware store to install your privacy screen to a pre-existing concrete or wood surface. Screw one side of the bracket to your privacy screen post and the other side to the surface . We recommend doing this for all posts. Remember this screen is not designed to be used as a fence. It needs to be installed at a right angle and not in a straight line otherwise it will be vulnerable to wind damage.

    Can I put the Deluxe Privacy Screen sections in a straight line instead of a right angle?

    You may, but please note that the no-dig stakes are designed to work only when the screens are installed at a right angle to each other. As such, if you wish to install the privacy screens in a straight line (like a fence) please install concrete footings into the ground (or patio stones) and mount the base of the posts to the concrete surface with a stainless steel or galvanized brackets.

    Can I push the bottom rail down the be flush with the ground?

    Yes, If your land is flat you can certainly push the fence all the way down so that the bottom rail is flush with the ground. If your land is more sloped you may have some issues laying the bottom rail flat to the ground, which is why we suggest leaving a couple inches between the bottom rail and the ground.
