Wood Fencing and Decking

Jun 11, 2014 | Decks, Fences

Trying to decide what type of material to use for your new fence or deck? Each has its own set of costs and benefits. Let’s look at wood…

  • Can be used to create curves
  • Natural appearance (great for wooded lots)
  • Can be finished with stain or paint (endless colors/finishes)
  • One of the cheaper options
  • Potential for rot/problems with pests such as termites
  • Eventually requires maintenance (staining, painting, repairs)
  • Costs of lumber are on the rise
 STYLE: Versatile – many different designs and styles available
DURABILITY: Depends on…
  • Type of post
  • Type of lumber
  • Waterproofing
  • Upkeep
