Metal Vs. Wooden Fencing
What Are The Benefits Of Metal Fencing?
Metal fences are aesthetically appealing. They’re usually tall, and often bear dark, elegant finishes that can give your outdoor space a polished appearance. Ornamental spires and other decorations add to their appeal. Metal fencing is also stronger than traditional fences, and tends to maintain its appearance and shine over longer periods of time. Additionally, they usually won’t rust over time, and don’t require staining or painting to look fresh. If rust does develop, or if you wish to avoid this altogether, the fence can be stained with a rust-preventative primer.
What Are The Benefits Of Wooden Fencing?
Wooden fencing is a traditional option that complements nearly any home’s exterior, and can be painted or stained to match or contrast your home. Some types of wood, such as cedar, can resist insect invasions and even prevent rot over time. However, some types of wood are susceptible to termite invasions. Wooden fencing is also quite affordable if you’re watching your wallet. Ideally, it should be stained or painted every few years to maintain its appearance—even natural-toned woods may benefit from a clear gloss to refresh the fence.
