As a professional fencing company, we see trends in fencing materials rise and fall periodically, but wood fencing has remained a staple. That’s why in this month’s blog post we will discuss the benefits of wood fencing, one of the most popular materials on the market, from its easy installation to its adaptable nature.
1. Great Durability To Cost Ratio:
Most wooden fences can be expected to last about 20 years, a lifespan that can be extended even further when precautions are taken. Using pressure-treated wood helps avoid problems like termites, and the use of sealants can offer a further level of protection from weathering. Wood is also an option that’s much better suited to resist impact than other options such as a vinyl fencing.
2. Fast & Easy Installation:
With years of experience comes unmatched efficiency, and that’s why our installation process for wood fencing can take place much quicker than other materials. Inconsistencies can be rectified in a simple fashion and the versatility of wood allows for easy customization.
3. Unmatched Adaptability:
Wood is a material that comes in a variety of styles across the spectrum from traditional and natural to contemporary stylish. This is one of the primary benefits of wood fencing as a material; it is incredibly versatile and can be customized to what the homeowner has in mind. They have the option of painting it a different color or sanding down and reapplying a new stain at some point during the lifespan of the fence. This can inject some new life into what was an old look.
4. Natural Noise Cancelling:
Wood is a dense material compared to other options such as vinyl. This provides one of the best benefits of wood fencing – it acts as a natural noise reducer. Wood fences that are utilized as privacy fences, around 6′ tall or more, will notice a drastic reduction in noise levels from roads and neighbors alike. Depending on the type of wood that is utilized for the fence as well as the style of fence that is chosen, the amount of noise reduction will vary. If reducing the amount of noise you experience in your outdoor space is one of your goals, let us help guide you to the perfect combination of wood type and fence style to maximize that aspect!
