Why Composite Fencing is a Durable and Green Choice

Why Composite Fencing is a Durable and Green Choice

Composite fencing, which is made from a mixture of plastic and wood, offers a bunch of benefits to suit all of your fencing needs.

When you are picking the best fence material for enclosing your yard, you will want to choose the right type. Something that is attractive, strong, and long-lasting is ideal. Composite fencing, which is made from a mixture of plastic and wood, offers a bunch of benefits to suit all of your fencing needs. There are many different reasons to consider composite, and we here at Eastern Shore Porch and Patio can provide you with an aluminum fence installation whenever you need it. Read on to learn why composite fencing is a durable and environmentally safe green choice!

Aesthetically Pleasing

With composite fencing, you are able to achieve any type of aesthetic you desire, from a classic “white picket” style to a much more contemporary look. Offering the appearance of wood without all the upkeep, this kind of fencing material is available in various sizes, styles, colors, and feels to suit you and your property’s needs.

Longevity, Durability, and Value

Depending on the type of species and environmental exposure, natural wooden fences can last about seven to 30 years. However, composite fencing can last30 years or longer due to the protective exterior layer, which will prevent damage from pests, sun damage, insects, mold, or mildew. Natural wood might have a relatively inexpensive upfront cost, but it does have higher maintenance, replacement, and repair costs than composite fencing.

Repairs, Replacements, and Cleaning

Composite fencing is very low maintenance, and cleaning can typically be done by a quick rinsing with your hose. Stubborn spots can be cleaned with soap and a scrub brush or a pressure washer. If a section of your composite fence happens to get damaged and requires replacement, the new board or section will blend in seamlessly, unlike vinyl or wood fencing repairs which tend to stand out more.

The Eco-Friendly Fencing Option

Pressure-treated wood fencing is typically filled with insect-resistance chemicals, which can be hazardous to your health if you inhale it or ingest it. These materials can leech into the surrounding areas too. Toxic additive-free composite wood is created with a type of reclaimed sawdust and leftover wooden pulp from paper mills that would typically go to waste and recycled waste materials like plastic bags. When your composite fence reaches the very end of its life cycle, it can then be recycled, unlike any pressure-treated wooden fences. This is why it is such an environmentally friendly and green choice if you are a home or business owner.
