Menards Lima Ohio Review

I purchased 400 feet of Belmont Vinyl Fencing from Menards in Lima, Ohio in May 2014. In the last 1 1/2 years I have had to replace the fence panels continusly when ever the temps drop below 40 degrees. The poorly designed/cheaply made plastic brackets holding the panels break causing the panels to blow out & completely disassemble themselves damaging the panels. Menards has told me, that although they still sell the product, warranty on the parts is no longer available because the vendor is no longer in business. The product was advertised as “Maintenance Free with a Limited Lifetime Warranty”” At no time was I ever told the vendor had gone out of business & the warranty was no longer valid. I was told by Menards to paint & use ugly galvinized 2 x 4 joist hangers as a fix for the problem. This is a well know problem (complaints go back to 2010) with these plastic brackets. Menards is fully aware of the problem yet continues to sell this product with

Menards is fully aware of the problem yet continues to sell this product without advising the customer they can expect problems if they live in a cold climate. Stay away from this product unless you want a fence that will blow apart whenever the wind picks up. I am out over $7000.00 and my only option is to remove & replace the entire fence. I have filed a complaint with the Ohio Department of Consumer Affairs.”
