Wood Fencing vs. Vinyl Fencing

In a previous article, we’ve discussed the pros and cons of using wood fences. In later years, other materials have been deemed suitable for fencing. Vinyl fences were introduced in the market in the 1980s.

In this article, we will see how wood fences compare with its vinyl counterpart. Let’s discuss how each one performs on these three fields: sturdiness, maintenance, and cost.

 

STURDINESS

Wood can last over 20 years with yearly treatment, but without regular maintenance, your fence boards can easily break down and crack in just a few years. Wood is prone to pest and termite attacks too and the boards can also be warped or distorted over time if no treatment for moisture and for weather changes have been made.
Wood Fence DamageGoing all-natural also means that the fencing will be predisposed to rot and decay but if you opt for stronger types of wood (cedar and redwood), you might be able to make them last for years as long as you take proper care.

Vinyl, on the other hand, does not break down nor split over time. Weather changes, rotting, termites, pests, and decay do not affect the material. Vinyl fences don’t require special procedures to protect it from dry rot or fungus. Vinyl offers homeowners a natural look that is nearly impossible to tell the difference. Our Prestige line of fencing is a great example of  how vinyl fencing can look as natural as wood. It also offered the added benefit of long-lasting, low-maintenance durability.

 

THIS MATCH GOES TO: In terms of sturdiness for a longer period of time, vinyl wins.

 

MAINTENANCE

Because of its organic nature, wood is considered as a high maintenance material. Especially with fences, the boards are subject to rain, heat, moisture, and rotting. Check out your local market and you’ll find several coating, treating, and repainting solutions that you can do to ensure your fence will last a long time. When it comes to repair, it’s easy to pull off a rotting board and replace with a new lumber.

Cleaning The Vinyl

When you opt to go with vinyl, the only maintenance you will ever need to do is to occasionally dust it off to remove dirt. Because vinyl is glossy and non-porous, dirt can easily slide away when it rains. In cases of extreme temperatures, vinyl can bend and you might have to replace the boards. Unlike wood where you can just replace a board, vinyl might need a more extensive repair and you might be replacing an entire section instead of a few boards.

THIS MATCH GOES TO: We don’t want anything that’s high maintenance. We choose vinyl.

 

COST

In the long run, vinyl fencing is the  lower cost winner. Depending on your style choice, Yes, wood may in some cases be cheaper upfront than vinyl. However, unless you want a yard full of rotting wood fencing, you MUST take into consideration the repainting jobs and the maintenance procedures that you would have to pay for in the future, .

When it comes to cost, it will be good to answer the following questions:

  • Are you fencing an area of considerable size?
  • Are you going to stay in your home for the next 5 to 10 years and more?
  • Is the fencing area small?

THIS MATCH GOES TO: We can give the win to vinyl fencing. Wood is cheaper upfront but vinyl is the most economical choice if you think in terms of future expenses. You will have to make a choice depending on what your project circumstances are.

In the areas we’ve discussed above, choosing vinyl fences prove to be more beneficial than wood.

VIDEO: Installing a Vinyl Fence Yourself

Here’s an interesting video on installing vinyl fencing

In this video, This Old House landscape contractor Roger Cook works with a fencing contractor to install a vinyl privacy fence.

Steps:
1. Use an electric jackhammer to cut away part of the asphalt driveway at the first gatepost location.
2. Stretch a taut mason line from the first post location to establish the position of the second post.
3. Use a posthole digger to excavate a 30-inch-deep posthole for each gatepost.
4. Slide an aluminum I-beam into each vinyl post and secure them with ¾-inch self-tapping screws.
5. Pour one 80-pound bag of concrete into a wheelbarrow, add six pints of water, and mix well with a shovel.
6. Dump two full shovels of concrete into the first hole.
7. Set an aluminum-fortified vinyl gatepost in the hole and plumb it with a level.
8. Shovel more concrete around the post, filling the hole to within 3 inches of grade.
9. Tamp down the concrete with a steel bar, then smooth the concrete with a trowel.
10. Repeat Steps 6 through 9 to install the second gatepost.
