Fall is the perfect time for backyard renovations and to have that privacy fence you’ve always wanted finally installed. As a top rated fencing company in Central Florida, we are often asked for help choosing between a vinyl or wood fence.

Both have their own advantages, as well as disadvantages. Here are a few things to keep in mind when making that decision.

While wood fences may require a little more maintenance than vinyl, the trade off is a gorgeous fence! However, vinyl needs little maintenance, just hosing down every now and then. 


The initial investment for vinyl tends to a little higher than wood fences. They both add value to your home. Vinyl provides the same security and privacy as wood, as well as absorbing sound. Allowing you to enjoy your backyard.

Whether you are choosing vinyl or wood for your next fence, for a durable fence that will have a long lifespan, choose a professional company with a good reputation and uses quality materials and installation.
