When installing a new fence or replacing an old one, the choice of fencing material is one of the most important decisions you face. Each type of material has advantages and disadvantages, including maintenance, life span, suitability to both the site and any neighborhood codes, as well as the cost of installation. Wood fencing is a classic choice due to a number of factors.
Our priority at First Fence of Georgia is not only to install an attractive, top-quality fence that fits your needs and your budget, but to help you understand all the options to make the best choice.
From white pickets to ranch rail, wood is a timeless choice for many popular fencing styles. It has a number of advantages which make it a favorite with many homeowners.
Aside from stone, wood is perhaps the oldest fencing material in continuous use across the world. A number of classic fencing designs have traditionally been built from wood. For example, split rail fences have graced properties for centuries. These fences help create an aesthetic that’s grounded in time-honored style. Wood fences won’t go out of fashion with shifting trends.
While pressure-treated pine is popular due to its durability in outdoor settings, there are numerous types of wood that can be used as fencing. Spruce, cedar, cypress and redwood are other suitable options. The uniqueness of each type of wood combined with a wide range of paints and stains ensures an endless variety of looks. Additionally, wood lends itself to any number of fencing styles. These include dog ear, lattice and many more. Wood’s versatility makes it highly customizable and a complement to just about any architectural style.
Wood is a renewable resource that is both natural and abundant. Therefore, the price of wood fencing is usually relatively low when compared to materials such as steel or aluminum. With professional installation and proper maintenance, a wood fence can remain functional and attractive for decades. This gives them a great durability-to-cost ratio.
A wood fence is comparatively simple to install. That means lower installation costs as well as less disruption to your home or business. If you’re looking to install a fence quickly, wood is a solid choice.
Due to its versatility, wood is a popular material for other outdoor living projects as well. From pergolas, trellises, and arbors to various types of gates, First Fence of Georgia offers an exceptional variety of additions to your wood fencing.
