If you live in an area with a lot of rain or moisture, a wooden fence may require a lot of maintenance. It will likely need to be treated at least once a year with a water sealer to prevent rot. Once wood begins to rot, it becomes discolored and begins to weaken and fall apart. Your wood fence will also need to be painted frequently, generally every three to five years. If you live in a dry climate, wooden fence also requires painting and yearly maintenance. Dry air dries the wood and causes it to crack and peel. None of these problems occur with a FencePlace vinyl fence. Vinyl fencing products don’t chip or get waterlogged. They do not absorb water and they do not dry out, so, no matter what your local climate is like, your FencePlace vinyl fence will always look the same as the day it was installed.
