What Are the Pros and Cons of Wood Fencing?
Wood fencing is extremely popular in Maryland, because of the natural materials that incorporate into the popular native look of most landscape designs.
Affordability: Wood fence installation is the least expensive of the quality fence styles. The only cheaper option is the plastic fencing, which some feel does not convey a quality or natural look.
Durability and Fence Maintenance: You can expect your wood fence to last 20 years or more if properly cared for. Our materials are pressure treated, rot resistant, and sealed. It should be restained or repainted every few years, waterproofed every other year, and that is about all the maintenance it should need.
Damage and Rot are the only cons with wood fencing. Iron fencing is less prone to damage from fallen limbs, or moisture, but that comes at a price. Properly maintained stained or painted fences will withstand the elements better than a neglected wood fence.
