The Advantages To Choosing A Traditional Wooden Fence

Posted on

If you've been shopping for a new fence recently, you know that there are a myriad of fencing materials from which to choose, everything from vinyl to aluminum. However, one of best and most versatile materials on the market today is one of the most traditional--wood. Wooden fences are not only beautiful, but they are cost-effective and adapt to most any design or architectural style.

Reasons to choose a wooden fence

1. Aesthetics. A wooden fence adds a classic, finished look to any property. Wood fencing also adds to your home's curb appeal, making it more attractive to visitors and more enticing to prospective home buyers when it comes time to put your house on the market.

2. Versatility. Wooden fences go with almost any type of home. There are solid, wooden privacy fences; open, split-rail fences; or even lattice work fences. Wooden fencing can be sealed and left its natural color, stained any number of wood grain hues or painted virtually any color in the rainbow.

2. Durability. A treated wooden fence can last 30 years or more. For many homeowners, it's the last fence they will ever have to buy.

3. Cost. Wooden fencing is much less expensive than other fencing options, such as vinyl and wrought iron. This is, in large part, because wood is a natural product, whereas vinyl fencing panels are manufactured and wrought iron fencing is forged by hand, a time-consuming and expensive process.

4. Works well with all terrains. If your yard in sloped, wooden fencing can be cut to follow the terrain, unlike fencing materials like iron or aluminum that will leave big gaps when installed on a slope.

5. Easy to repair. Should your wooden fence become damaged, it's easy to remove the worn piece of wood and replace it without having to buy an entire new fence panel, such as you have to do if a section of vinyl or aluminum fencing is damaged.

6. Easy to install. Wooden fencing, unlike many other types of fencing, is also very easy to install. Many homeowners can do it themselves. You can get all of the supplies you need to assemble a wooden fence at big box home supply stores or even local lumber yards.

While a wooden fence isn't the right choice for every homeowner, this type of fencing is beautiful, durable and much less expensive than many other types of fencing. If you're interested in a wooden fence for your yard, contact a company like Buyrningwood Farm Inc to get started.
