FloriFence is a top Tampa installer of wooden fencing. It is one of our most popular options, and we believe it’s because of the quality and style that clients receive when they choose wood. However, there are endless options when it comes to home and business fencing. You should explore them all before making your final decision.
One of the main reasons clients cite fr choosing wood fencing is the price. It is typically priced at $3 to $10 per square foot depending on the wood type, cut, and decorative style. This low material cost and ease of installation make wooden fencing an affordable option for most property owners.
In addition, wood fencing is a stylish choice. Its natural appearance makes it ideal for home privacy fencing. Some wood types, such as cedar, are natural bug repellants and will last 10 to 15 years with proper maintenance. Wooden fencing can also be cut into custom designs and include toppers, gates, and other decorative elements that help your fencing stand out.
Wooden fencing is the second-most affordable option we offer for homes and business. Chain link is our lowest-priced option, but it does not offer the same privacy or security that a wooden fence does. Wood fencing is often the happy medium between low cost and style. We also provide painted and stained wood options to make your wooden fencing look better and last longer.
While wooden fencing is a great option especially for homeowners, it is not the right choice for everyone. If you are considering wooden fencing, as yourself these questions to determine whether it is right for you:
- How long will you be in this home? Wood fencing typically lasts10-15 years with proper maintenance, which means it will need to be replaced eventually. If you are planning to move or don’t mind the expense, then wood may be a great choice. However, if you want something that will last 20 years or more, vinyl and aluminum may be better options.
- Do you live on the waterfront? Typically, we don’t recommend wooden fencing for homes or businesses close to the water because of its susceptibility to water damage. While wood stains can improve its water resistance, we often recommend chain link or vinyl to prevent water damage and premature fencing replacements.
- Do you want a natural look? Wood is the most natural fencing option and provides a beautiful unpainted look. However, some home and business owners prefer something sleeker than wood, which is why we often recommend vinyl.
