Wood Fencing: Pros & Cons






The Pros and Cons of Installing a Wooden Fence

A wood fence is a great addition to any yard. There are a wide variety of designs that can provide style, security, and privacy to your property. A wood fence can be installed with prefabricated wood panels, or it can be custom-built on site to perfect fit your yard.

- Can be painted any color
- Very affordable
- Variety of wood species
- Easy to cut, install, and customize
- Natural and biodegradable
- Can provide security and contain pets

The Bad:

- Requires more maintenance than vinyl
- Over time, fence way sag or warp
- Wood will rot
- Tends to show its age quickly

The Bottom Line:

Wood fencing is durable, affordable, and versatile. A picket fence will add charm to a cottage-style house while a shadowbox-style fence will add privacy and security. A wood fence is typically easy to install and maintain. Periodically, you will need to re-stain or repaint it in order to keep it looking like new.
