When you began your journey in the world of fences, you found yourself faced with a number of options. However, now that you have narrowed your search down to these two options, making a final decision can be difficult. In order to choose between a wood fence and a chain link fence, a homeowner must take the time to compare the two within a number of areas.
A price tag can always be the deciding factor in any major decision. While both fence options are relatively affordable, a wood fence could end up costing your more. This will depend on the type of wood you choose and how easy or hard it is to get in. The higher quality of wood the higher the price for your fence.
If you don’t have the time to dedicate to maintenance, you don’t want to choose a difficult fence. A chain link fence will only require maintenance once the chain begins to fade while a wood fence will require frequent maintenance to prevent damage.
The number of potential problems a fence could have can also help sway a decision. A chain link fence that isn’t treated with a covering can fade over time while also suffering from rust due to rain. A wood fence can fall victim to rot due to water exposure, or it could be consumed by insects if a stain isn’t properly used.
Consider how private you want to keep your home. If you don’t mind individuals being able to see your yard, a chain link fence will work for you. However, if you are looking for more privacy, a wood fence will be the better option.
