Wood vs. PVC fencing: which is best? With its lengthy life, lack of maintenance, formidable strength, and beautifully versatile appearance, vinyl should be your preferred choice for fencing. Although it is more expensive upfront, it provides a better return on investment and won’t require regular (and costly) maintenance like wood fencing. Unless you’re looking to fence a very large area and you also don’t plan to live in your current home very long, we promise that you will be happier with a vinyl fence in the long run.

CristalFence strives to continually reduce its ecological footprint by betting on PVC, durable and ecological material. PVC fencing requires no maintenance whatsoever. Although you may want to hose it off from time to time to remove built up dirt, that chore will often be performed by the rain! Wood, on the other hand, requires an abundance of work if you want it to look clean and presentable and last for many years to come. It will need to be cleaned periodically, treated, stained every year for the first three years, and stained every other year after that (and unfortunately, staining can be expensive and time-consuming). Plus, wood rots as the years go by. As it warps and begins to fall apart, you will need to replace the damaged lumber.

PVC Fence does not rot and is bug resistant, resistant to moisture, can be made in a variety of different colors to match your home. What else? Oh yeah, cheaper than wood or chain-link fences in the long-run and PVC Fence is free of harmful chemicals.

PVC Fence can stand up to harsh weather, pests, decay, and fungus. In fact, without any help from you, it can easily last decades. Wood will break down over time and you will have to repair and replace the fence’s lumber. What a hassle! Stick with vinyl if you want a strong, long-lasting fence.
