Nowadays, fences come in a vast array of sizes, shapes, colors, textures, and materials. We’ll help you find the perfect design and fence-type for you; we’ll be able to narrow your search further by finding options within your budget. One of the most familiar and popular fences in neighborhoods is standard wood. They offer great privacy, are inexpensive, and look great. However, these fences won’t last a lifetime, but you can expect them to last between 5 and 10 years. Wood also changes shape with the weather, which causes it to warp, sag, bind, and loosen. If you want to choose this material, then you should also plan for maintenance when needed. That’s why we recommend getting pressure-treated posts to minimize this effect.
