When it comes to the curb appeal of your home, wood fencing does an excellent job to beautify and add value to your home. Wood fencing is very versatile as it can feature different designs and endless finishing options. Depending on your climate, you can also use different kinds of wood, some of the most popular include spruce, cedar, and treated pine. Each will stand up to the elements a bit differently and provide a different look and feel to your home.
Chain Link Fencing has limited finishing options and often only come in limited colors to include green, black, brown, or silver. This type of fencing also has fewer design options than a wood or vinyl fence. A chain link fence may not be ideal for homes where a key priority is security or privacy — these fences best suited for pet areas, or commercial areas.
When estimating the cost for a wood privacy fence, we take into consideration factors such as type of wood, style of the fence, height, and finishing. The cost of wood fence installation is usually higher than the cost of installing chain-link, but you’re assured of more privacy, design elements, and appeal.
Chain link fencing is an inexpensive fencing option as compared to wood. The materials are not less expensive per foot, and if necessary, can be installed more quickly.
Chain link does require periodic checks to remove any rust that may be present. If applicable, vinyl fabric inserts in your chain link fences require even less maintenance.
