Here at Everlast Vinyl Fencing, we know that each fencing material comes with its own advantages and drawbacks. We pride ourselves on our keen ability to help people in Edmonton and the surrounding areas find the perfect fence for their needs. Wood fencing is a very popular option for many reasons. Here are some of the main benefits of having wood fencing installed on your property:
Wood fencing is a great fencing material for the price. While it is not quite as affordable as vinyl fencing, it does come at a much lower cost than iron or aluminum fences. Also, unlike some fences, if your wood fence gets damaged, it can be repaired plank by plank rather than having to replace the entire fence or large sections.
Just like with pricing, wood isn’t quite as easy to install as vinyl, but it’s easier than many other options. Additionally, wood fences are installed plank by plank, which means that any mistakes can be easily rectified. Other materials generally require starting the entire process over.
Wood fences are more durable than many think when maintained properly. In fact, they can last upwards of 20 years. Additionally, there are plenty of products available to increase a wood fence’s durability through staining, pressure treatment, etc. With all of these treatments, wood fencing could be considered even more durable than vinyl, depending on the specific needs of the customer.
The area where wood fences shine the most is in the versatility of their look. For one, wood works well in outdoor areas because of its natural appeal. Additionally, there are many different types of wood, cuts, and designs for wooden fences and if you decide that you want to change the color, it’s as easy as a new coat of paint.
Like vinyl fences, wood fences are great for privacy because they block the visible blank space that metal fences do not. However, not all wood fence designs will necessarily offer the privacy protection that you’re looking for, so make sure to discuss your options with your fencing contractor.
