Wood fencing has been a mainstay for American homeowners for years, but is it right for you? There are several unique benefits to a wood fence you may not have known about. In addition, they can be highly customizable and easier to install than other forms of fencing. Here are a few reasons you should consider wood fencing for your home.
Wood fencing is going to be a cheaper upfront cost than iron, vinyl or other types of fence. If you are looking to get the best bang for your buck then wood fencing is right for you. There is a caveat to this though. Depending on the wood, you can have it pretreated to last longer. This may bump up the price. However, it is still competitively priced with other materials. Furthermore, you will need to treat the wood in the future with wood preservatives. This is a small price that you will pay over time in order to renew wooden fences. Doing this every couple of years will help the wood keep its color and glow. If you are fine with a smaller upfront cost and paying small fees over time for upkeep then wood fencing may be right for you.
If you are looking for privacy on a budget then you should look heavily into wood fencing. Intrusive neighbors and prying eyes can be a damper on your family and way of lifestyle. You don’t have to settle for less. Hiring a fencing company can help you keep your privacy secure and protect your family. Criminals will also be deterred from breaking and entering your home if they can’t climb a fence or make a quick escape. Also, criminals are not going to break into a home before first looking at it, so don’t give them that option. Putting up privacy wood fencing gives you the best protection from those who have no business seeing inside your home.
Improve Curb Appeal
The American ideal for centuries has been a white wood picket fence that borders the home. Because of that ideal, most wood fencing is going to add to the value of your home. It’s one of the main reasons you need a fence. If you are thinking about ever selling your home then you should consider wood fencing as it may be that extra detail that gets someone to buy from you. However, you will need to maintain and restore the wood on a tight schedule. Make sure you are taking care of the wood and repainting if need be. Use your wood fencing as a great starting point for guests when they enter your home, which leads me to my next point.
Dozens of styles
Wood fencing can be very stylish. No wood fence has to be the same. If you are looking for a personal touch to add to the outside of your home, wood fencing is the perfect starting point. Whether you are looking for a white picket fence or privacy fence, you can choose things like materials, colors, size, decorations, and other options. Let your wood fencing be a part of your home and style. Try meeting with a local fencing company and see what would work best for your yard.
Keep animals and kids in
Living in a cul-de-sac or busy street presents certain problems, mainly protecting yourself and others from the outside world. Wood fencing is an excellent option for keeping your pets such as cats and dogs from hurting the mailman. It also helps keep other animals away from your family or anyone getting hurt. You can have peace of mind knowing that when you let the kids play outside they are confined to a certain area. Having a fence helps sets boundaries that you are comfortable with.
