When it comes time to decide on a new fence for your San Antonio home, there are many considerations to take into account. Not sure if a wood fence is the best choice for your home and your family’s needs? We are here to outline the many benefits of wood fencing, from classic beauty to environmental friendliness.

1.  Easy to Install

One of the easiest types of fences to install, wood is light and therefore easier to install than metal and other materials. But despite their lightweight nature, they’re also strong and solid, giving your property the protection it needs to keep your kids and pets inside and unwanted visitors out.

2.  Affordable

Depending on the style of fence you go with, your new fence is a big investment. If you don’t do your research when vetting fence companies, you can easily spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars more than you should. That said, wooden fences are less expensive products if you are willing to put in the care and maintenance. They may not last quite as long as vinyl, but they will definitely give you many years of enjoyment with professional installation and regular maintenance.

3.     Height Adjustable

With other types of fences, such as vinyl or ornamental, you can’t adjust the lengths after they have been ordered. That’s because the parameters and specifications have been fixed at the manufacturing level. But with a wooden fence, you can make adjustments as needed, cutting down and trimming what you don’t want. You can also trim off excess if you accidentally ordered the wrong length.

A skilled fencing contractor will use this ability to his or her advantage, perhaps by making a sloped yard appear less uneven by trimming planks as they are installed.

4.  Visually Appealing

There’s no doubt about it: wooden fences are beautiful and natural looking. There’s no substitute for that! And even with the many benefits of vinyl, you really can’t achieve that traditional rustic look of wood without the real thing. When you think of the typical American home with a wooden picket fence, this is the image you conjure.

It is this natural look that ensures wooden fences blend in nicely with any San Antonio landscape.

5.  Environmentally Friendly

Another benefit to a wooden fence is its recyclable components. It really doesn’t get any “greener” than wood, which is almost completely biodegradable and a renewable resource.
