Vinyl and wood fencing materials are ideal for securing residential properties. Both fencing types have distinct advantages, and factors like long-term costs can affect property owners’ decisions between the two. Here are some of the differences between wood and vinyl fencing and how they affect the overall cost:

Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl fencing is durable and designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, including rain and snow. This material is not susceptible to rot, warping, or fading. It is also resistant to insect and pest damage. Vinyl fencing retains its shape and structural integrity for years and does not require regular maintenance. To keep vinyl fences in good condition, property owners can occasionally clean them with mild detergent and water. The low-maintenance nature of vinyl fencing saves individuals time and effort that would be spent on upkeep.

Properly installed vinyl fences are designed to last many years before significant wear and tear is noticeable. This makes vinyl a cost-effective and long-term fencing solution. At Outlaw Fence, we install high-quality materials that add security and lasting value to your property. Our team of fencing experts will help you choose from a wide variety of premium vinyl materials to find a product that matches your needs and goals.

Wood Fencing

A wood fence adds timeless charm to residential properties. Depending on the type of wood used, a wood fence can blend with the natural surroundings of your property. This material can be installed in multiple styles, from classic picket fences to modern horizontal designs, to match your home’s architecture. Outlaw Fence has experience installing solid wood fences that provide security and privacy. Before installation, we confirm that the material is durable, of premium quality, and is treated to withstand the elements to prevent rot and decay.

Wood fencing may require regular maintenance, like staining and painting, to maintain its weatherproof qualities. Property owners should inspect their wood fencing regularly to identify signs of weathering, rot, or fading caused by moisture or the sun. Maintenance may also include treatments to keep insects such as termites or carpenter ants away from the wood. These preventative actions help property owners avoid costly repairs and premature replacement of fence components.

How To Choose Between Vinyl or Wood

High-quality vinyl fences can last for multiple decades with minimal upkeep. Even with diligent maintenance, wood fences may need to be replaced after one or two decades. Wood fencing materials add natural beauty to a property, while vinyl provides longevity. Wood fencing is a suitable choice if the homeowner prefers a rustic aesthetic. If the value of low-maintenance and durable fencing is a homeowner’s top priority, vinyl fencing may be the right material. Both materials provide complete privacy for homeowners and require the help of a specialized professional for proper assembly and installation.
