Which Fence Materials Are Most Durable?, Cookeville, Tennessee

Durability is a must-have trait when it comes to fence installation, particularly when safety and cost-effectiveness are high on the list of priorities. Fortunately, homeowners have quite a few options to choose from, and many of these fencing systems offer both security as well as endurance to homeowners. Here’s a closer look at the most durable choices.

Chain Link

Chain link fencing is a good option when on a budget. Not only can these fences be installed easily, but they’re also quite durable considering their relatively low cost. Chain link can last as long as 20 years, although rust may eventually be an issue. However, this doesn’t affect the stability. 


FenceWhile you might not think of wood as having the durability of metal, pressure-treating it can make a huge difference. This prevents the wood from rotting, keeps pests at bay, and also reduces damage caused by rain. Even with pressure-treating, wood still requires regular upkeep, though, such as painting or staining. 


For a low-maintenance option, aluminum is the way to go. This metal stands up to inclement weather well and is also impervious to rust. It also looks quite attractive despite its relative affordability. In most cases, an annual cleaning is the extent of maintenance needed for aluminum. 


Vinyl fences are incredibly easy to install. Additionally, you won’t need to worry about the sun bleaching the material or damage caused by high winds and rain. Vinyl also looks great and like aluminum requires very little maintenance to stay that way for many years.
