Pros and Cons of Composite Fence Installation

The Pros and Cons of Installing Composite Fencing

Composite fencing is relatively new to the marketplace. It is an engineered wood product that is made mostly of recycled material. It is strong and durable, but tends to be much more expensive than wood or vinyl. Composite fencing often comes with a 20-year warranty and it will require very little maintenance over its life. If you're interested in how much your project will cost, check out the ProMatcher Fence Installation Cost Report for more information.

The Good:

• Durable
• Simulates the look of wood
• Good weather-resistance
• Will not be damaged by pests or insects
• Not damaged by moisture
• Requires very little maintenance
• Color will not fade

The Bad:

• Very expensive
• More difficult to install than vinyl or wood
• Heavier, typically requires a steel or wood support frame
• Not ideal for steep yards
• Somewhat limited color options
• Cannot fully replicate the look of a classic wood fence

The Bottom Line:

Composite fencing will likely outlast a wood fence. You will not need to worry about it warping or rotting, and it can be easily cleaned with a hose. If you are looking for a wood-like fence without the maintenance, composite may very well be the choice for you. Composite fencing can handle wind and rain without a problem, but it will take a little longer to install. A composite fence can be a stylish and durable addition to any lawn.
