The incomparable natural beauty of wooden fences charms many homeowners. Quality wood, expert construction, and the perfect stain will give you a beautiful wooden fence that will not only add privacy and security to your property but also enhance the beauty of your home as well. In addition, installing a wood fence provides various customization options that allow you to personalize your new wall completely. Whether you choose a simple or a more ornate wooden fence, you can select a fence that will match your personality and add to the overall value of your home.
Wood fences are an excellent solution for privacy as well as a few other things.
• Commonly Used
Wood fences are the most traditionally used fences. Wood has a reputation for being a solid material for fence building. In addition, it takes time to wear and has a beautifully traditional aesthetic to it.
• Easy to Install
Wooden fences are some of the easiest to install. If you are a DIY type of person, installing these fences is more accessible than any others. If you prefer to contract the job out, it’ll be a quicker install than other fences. If a wooden fence isn’t perfect while it is being installed, it’s easier to fix. For example, if one of the posts was cut too long, it is easier to cut down than vinyl or aluminum.
• Installing a Wood Fence is a Green Option
Compared with a vinyl or chain link fence, installing a wood fence can be more environmentally friendly. It’s because a wooden fence can be built using reclaimed (recycled) wood rather than new materials. Plus, down the road, when your fence is beyond repair and needs replacement, the wood from your fence can be recycled again and turned into another project rather than being sent to the landfill. Generally, you can’t do that with vinyl fences, which usually cannot be recycled at the end of their life cycle.
You can easily change the look of a wooden fence by adding a coat of stain or paint. The look and feel of your landscaping can be altered quickly by simply changing the look of your wood fence.
