Vinyl Fence vs Wood Fence

VINYL FENCE VS. WOOD FENCE

Wood Fence

The state of Louisiana is no stranger to high temperatures, humidity, hurricanes, fungus, and pests. If maintained properly, the life expectancy of wood fence is approximately 5 – 12 years.

Maintenance:
  • Wood fence requires constant upkeep. Upkeep includes but is not limited to.
  • Continual Power Washing
  • Application of Chemical Sealant (Protector)
  • Examination for Termite Damage
  • Examination for Dry Rot
  • Replacement of Split / Warped Boards
  • Replacement of fencing system within 10 – 25 years

Vinyl Fence 

The life expectancy of Country Estate® vinyl fencing is over 50 years. Country Estate® products are projected to outlast the life of wooden fence and PVC imitators.

Maintenance:
Little to no maintenance needed. May need occasional wash with bleach & water solution.
