If you are looking for an alternative to wood your neighbors would envy then a composite fence might be an option to get the same great natural look and feel that wood has. The material is manufactured in a high-pressure mold, typically recycled plastic and wood, ground finely and fused by resins. This process creates a lightweight, weather-resistant, durable building material that is versatile.
What makes composite fencing so attractive? One reason is the appeal of a low maintenance fence and a high percentage of recycled components. Combine that with the fact that composite fences last five times longer than many other fence materials that require maintenance. At most, composite fences require an annual power washing.
There is no doubt early composites styles had extreme weather issues, but today’s generation of composite fences appear natural, strong, and versatile. Manufacturers of compositie fences have made significant improvements in the structure and finishing.
