Re: Fencing: Vinyl
I would forget about vinyl, it becomes brittle with age, let alone temperature changes. Wood is the better choice and can be installed in such a way as to not have spaces by lapping edges. As to the neighbor with the dog, call animal control if the neighbor isn't controlling his animal. Disruptive animals are both a nuisance and a danger, if your neighbor won't deal with his own business, animal control will make him. If the neighbor is a renter, then the landlord/owner will be required to help deal with the tenant/dog issue, including paying for a fence.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
