Wood Vs. Vinyl: Best Fence For Your Home

Now you may be wondering if this is a valid argument. It is, but I am definitely biased toward a specific type. Vinyl is much better than wood in every aspect. I mean, vinyl is essentially like wood only it’s better. Now maybe the article would be better titled why vinyl is better than wood, but wood definitely has one really cool property that vinyl doesn’t have. Also, if you are dealing with the HOA, you often have to get a wood fence and you don’t really have a choice in the matter.

Wood has one good thing about it and I would say that it is the fact that wood can be painted and stained. I mean, vinyl does have some wood colors, but it can’t really be pink or yellow. A wood fence gives you the ability to paint it every color and just live a happy, creative life! Well, of course, that is only true if you don’t deal with the HOA and they tell you that your fence has to be a specific color. Also, while painting a fence is great, as soon as the paint starts to chip (because it most definitely will) You are going to have to take it all off and do it again. I mean, you don’t HAVE to take off the paint, but your fence is going to end up looking really dingy and bad if you don’t.

Wood is also a very, very labor-intensive fence. Now the fence contractor has an easy job. But finding the best and reliable contractor is hard. The fence installation company in Tampa, FL has the best fence contractors that will surely help you. Find a branch, cut it, stick it in the ground, done. (Not really, but you get what I mean.) Now, after they leave, it is up to you to keep it looking presentable. I’m sure you can pay someone to do it, but that is going to be a lot of money out of your pocket. Even doing it yourself is a lot of money out of your pocket… and a lot of energy, and a lot of time. It’s honestly a lose-lose situation. Your wood fence is going to require a lot, so if you are willing to put that work in (or if you have no choice) go for it.

A vinyl fence on the other hand is a great invention in the world of fences. Wood costs less in the beginning, but because of the amount of work it needs as I mentioned above, wood is going to end up costing you more. Vinyl can be made to look like wood, color and all, so why wouldn’t you get it? Vinyl is so much less work than wood I mean seriously! All you have to do is wipe it down every once in a while if it starts to look bad and bam! Your vinyl fence is great again! You can even use magic erase sponge to clean off any of the children’s gallery pieces! I’m telling you if you need a fence and you don’t have to get wood, get vinyl!
