Wood or Vinyl Fencing?

If you’ve decided that it’s time to put up a fence around your Orlando home, your next step is probably deciding what material your fence will be constructed from. Fencing can be constructed for a variety of purposes and typically include added privacy, security and enclosing children and animals within your backyard. Whether you decide on vinyl or wood fencing, each one serves the same purpose, but each also have unique characteristics.

Wood Fencing
What type of look are you looking for? If you want to add a rustic, natural touch to your home, Orlando wood fences are the perfect option. It’s a natural material that blends in with the landscape and requires little maintenance. Wooden fences can last for many years, but they may need a sealing treatment to avoid rot and warping. If a part of the fence is damaged, it’s much easier to replace a few planks rather than the entire fence. Compared to vinyl, wood is biodegradable for those concerned with environmental impact. Wood fencing is also cheaper when compared to vinyl.

Vinyl Fencing
There are several advantages to vinyl fencing, just as there are with wood fencing. Vinyl is easy to put up, and can come in a variety of different colors. Vinyl fencing require little to no maintenance unless damaged; there is also no need to add any type of sealing treatment. Vinyl can be easily cleaned using a hose and it can last for many years. It will also never rot or warp like wood, which makes it an ideal material. Although vinyl does cost more to purchase, you will save money over time because you won’t have to pay for maintenance.

Both of these materials have their advantages and disadvantages, but Fence Outlet can help you choose a fence that fits your needs and your property.
