I’ve been researching different types of fencing materials. I plan to have a fence installed around a portion or my entire property. The dimensions of the fence will depend on price. I’m also concerned about the amount of upkeep the fence involves. I don’t want to spend every summer working on the fence. I would like the material to be durable and hold up for many years. However, the more sustainable the style of fence, the more expensive it is. If money was no option, I would choose a masonry wall fence. Fences that are constructed out of brick, stone, block, concrete or stuck are built to last. These types of fences are especially beautiful and greatly increase the value of the property. However, masonry work requires specialized craftsmen and both the materials and labor are especially costly. Masonry wall fencing is known for its exceptional longevity. These fences can hold up for more than 100 years without any problems. I also like the look of vinyl fencing. It’s very modern and requires no maintenance. The fence can be hosed down and continues to look like new. The life expectancy of a vinyl fence is typically between twenty and thirty years. The reliability depends on the quality of the brand. The better manufacturers warranty their vinyl products for the lifetime of the fence. A wooden fence needs more care than the others. Without maintenance, it will rot, potentially become infested with bugs and fall apart. It is relatively easy to replace individual planks and boards. If there is scraping and painting involved, the job becomes very labor intensive.
