Are you looking to set up a new fence before the end of summer comes? Depending on where you live, you could place one fence type in your front yard and position another to protect the back of the house. It all depends on the layout of your yard, and what permissions you can get from your community and the county authorities. It’s time to weigh the merits of composite fences.
The Advantages of Composite Fences
Recycled plastic and wood materials are combined into composite fences. This process is what lends the fence its name. One significant benefit is that the present the elegant look of a high-quality wood fence. However, you will never have to worry about maintaining them during the dead of a humid Norfolk summer. Using this fence is also good for the environment. You are relying on recycled materials such as wood chips and sawdust and not new lumber that has to be cut before processing.
The Advantages of Vinyl Fences
Vinyl fences are another attractive option for keeping your home safe. These fences are crafted from a material known only as PVC, which stands for polyvinyl chloride. One major perk of this material is that it is easy to buy and easy to maintain. For the discerning homeowners in search of a more contemporary looking fence, vinyl is the way to go. Because it is so malleable, it can be formed into any shape its new owners may require. Plus, the fence panels snap together. This reduces the need to use screws, nails, or tools. Even so, it is still a smart idea to ask fence installation professionals for help instead of attempting to do it on your own.
As with many other alterations to your home, there are plenty of other factors to consider. Before any work can begin, you need to find out if you need permits or licenses to get the project underway. Composite fences may not be the best fit for anyone on a tight budget, especially if they are worried about how the wood will perform in times of high heat stress. Fading, staining, and mold growth are also problems that can affect both types of residential fences. So if you’re ready for the challenge, then you know who to call!
