Let’s suppose that you have tried a variety of fences and none of them have suited your needs. If you’re used to chain link and wrought iron fences, then you might never have given wood fences a chance. Or you didn’t feel compelled to install a vinyl fence. Let’s look at how they stack up against one another.
Benefits of Wood Fences
Wood fences are much more affordable than vinyl. So if you’re on a tight budget, then a wood fence might be all that you could afford. But that’s nothing to feel ashamed of since wood fences are incredibly versatile. They’re a classic for a reason, you know. You can paint or stain them according to what you want to do. You don’t have to match what all of your neighbors are doing, either. Just be careful not to anger your homeowner’s association and have them tell you to pull your fence down!
You can also have fences that are different sizes and shapes. Although wooden furniture tends to be heavy, wooden boards and planks that go into making a fence are much lighter. That means it’s easy to move around in your yard, no matter how large or small, flat or hilly it is. Plus, the wood is good for the environment, as it will eventually break down.
Benefits of Vinyl Fences
Now let’s turn our attention to vinyl fences. Like wooden fences, you can choose vinyl fences that are different sizes, shapes, and colors. One advantage it has over a wooden fence is that you won’t need to give up your weekend on maintenance projects such as painting or staining. There also aren’t nails that will rust, since vinyl panels snap together. It’s so easy to install you can probably do it yourself. Even so, it’s still a good idea to have fence building professionals on standby to give you advice and help out if you run into trouble. These fences won’t absorb water, give way to termite damage, or run the risk of splitting, peeling, and cracking. Best of all, spraying them with a power washer is all you need to do to keep them clean.
