Why buy from Dura-Trel


Why Vinyl?

If you’re looking for an arbor, trellis, planter box or picnic table that is 100% maintenance free, then vinyl is definitely the choice for you.  Unlike wood and metal products, Dura-Trel vinyl products will never rot, crack, peel, fade, rust or discolor.  In fact, Dura-Trel products will NEVER need paint, sealant or treating.  We are so confident in our product; we offer an industry leading 20-year warranty to back it up.  Your Dura-Trel product is guaranteed never to delaminate, crack, peel fade or discolor in any way.  Once assembled and installed in your yard the only maintenance ever needed is a simple spray with a garden hose and wipe clean. 

Marketing Strategy

At Dura-Trel, Inc. we strive to be a manufacturer first.  For this reason, we leave most of the sales and marketing of our products to others (see Where to Buy).  All Dura-Trel product images are real products, in real environments.  We choose not to use photo studios, fake back grounds and super imposed images to oversell our product.  We stand behind our products and choose to show them in natural, everyday scenes.

Manufacturing Process

Located in Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin the entire line of Dura-Trel products is conceived, designed, fabricated, and packed under one roof. 
Our cutting edge manufacturing process begins with the highest quality vinyl resin.  The resin is sent through a vinyl extrusion machine where it is extruded into one of our various part profiles.  From there parts are cut, bent, routed and drilled using a combination of high-tech equipment and hands-on craftsmanship to ensure quality and accuracy.
All Dura-Trel products come in kit form for easy shipping via UPS or Fed-Ex.  At Dura-Trel, we strive to give you the highest quality product along with unbeatable prices.  That is why all Dura-Trel products are packed in simple, yet extremely durable plain brown cartons, with minimal graphics or labeling.  No need for fancy packing or elaborate labeling for you to just through away.  Why not save that expense and pass it along to the customer with the most competitive prices on the market?

Product Ease and Strength

Unlike other manufacturers, there is never a need to drill or cut any component of a Dura-Trel product.  You will rarely even need to measure anything.  All components come completely fabricated for easy assembly using our easy to read, picture intensive assembly instructions.  Most Dura-Trel products can be assembled in less than 3 hours.   In fact, many of our more basic arbors and trellises can be assembled in less than 1 hour. All you need is a power screw driver and a little free time and you’ll be enjoying you Dura-Trel product.
No Dura-Trel arbor or trellis will ever use “bracket” style construction.  All posts of Dura-Trel arbors and trellises have routed holes so pieces are fully inserted into posts and fastened with screws as opposed to a bracket attached to the outside of a post. 
No Dura-Trel product ever uses a component that simply “snaps” together.  All components are securely fastened at multiple points using high quality screws with color matching covers to cover screw heads.
Unlike our vinyl competitors, who make you pay extra for ground anchors for their arbors and trellises, all Dura-Trel arbors and trellises have ground anchors included.  All arbors/trellises, except the Rosebud/Grapevine lines, now come with a stronger, sturdier steel ground anchor.  Arbors/trellises with 2 inch square posts come with 16” L-shaped ground anchor and arbors/trellises with 4 inch square posts come with 24” U-shaped ground anchor.  Why have to pay extra to keep your arbor/trellis from falling over? 

Dura-Trel, Inc. offers the most extensive, complete line lawn and garden products including: arbors, trellises, planter boxes, planter beds, picnic tables, benches/seats, potting benches, compost bins and much more.  In addition, we are the only vinyl manufacturer to offer many of our products in two colors: white and mocha.  If you don’t like anything you see, give us a call.  We strive to be the most flexible, customer friendly vinyl lawn and garden manufacturer around, if you’re interested in our product but don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, give us a call, we’d be happy to see if we can help you.  Need a product a little bigger, or a little smaller?  No problem, give us a call.  Don’t like the finials on top of that trellis or arbor? No problem, give us a call.

What does all this mean for you?

It means Dura-Trel, Inc. offers you the most extensive array of vinyl lawn and garden products that considerably stronger, more durable, easier to assemble and easier to install than our competition.  It also means that in order to give you the most competitive prices on the market Dura-Trel chooses to make sacrifices in non-essential, customer friendly places (fancy packaging and superficial product images) instead of product construction/quality places (none inclusive ground anchors and snap together parts).
