Fencing is a great way to add privacy and curb appeal to any size residential property. Choosing a material for the fence is one of the most important decisions a homeowner will need to make, and you can help guide them after learning more about the best materials for their residential fence project.
Wood fences are the most popular type of fence and have been around the longest. The type of style and range of colors are unlimited, and wood is a renewable resource if it has been sustainably harvested. The initial cost of a wood fence is much less than vinyl or composite, and if well-constructed, a wood fence will last for many years. Wood fences do require more maintenance than other types of fences. They need to be rinsed off on a regular basis and will need to be repainted or stained every 3-4 years. The upkeep cost of a wood fence will likely make it equal to or more expensive than the other types of fences.
