Here at Everlast Vinyl Fencing, we know that each fencing material comes with its own advantages and drawbacks. One of our favorite things to do is help people in our Edmonton community find the perfect fence for their needs. Wood fencing is a very popular option for many reasons. Here are some of the benefits to 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, for example. 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 options to increase a wood fence’s durability through staining, pressure treatment, etc. With all these treatments, wood fencing could be considered even more durable than vinyl considering more durable than vinyl depending on the needs.
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 ways to design your wooden fence. And if you decide you want to change the color, that is as easy as a new coat of paint.
Like vinyl fences, wood fences are great for privacy because they can cover up all the visible blank space usually found in metal fence designs. Not all designs of wood fence will necessarily offer the privacy protections you’re looking for, though, so make sure to discuss your options with your fencing contractor.
