Debunking 3 Common Fencing Myths

If you're considering installing a new fence, believing common fencing myths may impact the material you select. It's important to know the facts so you can make the right decision for your property. Here are three common myths surrounding fencing and the truths that you need to know about these myths.

Myths About Wood Fencing

Wood is the most common material used to construct fences. Despite, or perhaps because of, its popularity, there are many myths surrounding wood fencing. Many people think that wood fences are hard to maintain or that they may attract wood-eating pests, such as termites. First of all, it's important to know that wood fences don't attract pests. Also, wood fences need to be regularly cleaned and repaired, but they don't require any more care than other common types of fences. You can further decrease the maintenance that your wood fence needs by carefully selecting the species of wood your fence is made from. Redwood, for example, requires little care and maintenance.

Myths About Metal Fencing

Metal is another common material that fences can be made from. People often think that metal fences will rust or corrode, and as such, may be hesitant to install them. However, the truth is that metal fencing is typically powder-coated or treated to help prevent the metal from coming in direct contact with rain, water, or moisture. This helps to prevent any rusting or corrosion from happening.

Choosing the Right Fencing Type to Install

The last myth that some people believe about fences is that it doesn't really matter what type you install. This is quite simply not true. Pricing, maintenance, and appearance can all vary based on the fencing option you select. You should take time to learn the advantages and drawbacks associated with different fencing materials to learn which ones may be best suited for your property.

It's important to take good care of your exterior property. In fact, according to HomeLight, landscaping can increase the value of your home by as much as 10%. Fencing can drastically improve the aesthetic of your outdoor space and help protect your landscaping. If you're looking to find the perfect fence for your property, let Black Ops Fence help.
