Is a wood fence right for you?

If you want a fence that’s easy peasy lemon squeezy

When it comes to low-maintenance fence materials, nothing can beat the ease and durability of vinyl. It’s virtually maintenance-free and you’ll never have to sand it, stain it, or paint it. You’ll only need to get your hands dirty once it starts looking a little dingy and even then all it’ll take is a quick spray with a garden hose or perhaps a quick scrub for especially muddy areas.

If cost is your only concern

For homeowners who just want a cheap fence and don’t care about much else, chainlink fencing is by far the most affordable option available. While it may not make for the prettiest fence, chain link gets the job done on the cheap and is so durable that it can last for over a decade. For cost-efficiency, chain link is the way to go.

If you want to look good in the neighborhood

For a beautiful and unique fence, exotic hardwoods are the way to go. Woods such as ipe, white oak, or red cypress are absolutely beautiful in their own right and will make your fence the envy of your neighbors. These woods may come at a price, but their beauty and uniqueness will make up for the expense.
