The other advantage of wood fencing is that it’s inexpensive. Keeping in mind that raw materials will include other factors, such as pickets, rails, fence posts, and swinging gates, you can build a wood fence for less than almost any other material. Research suggests homeowners spend between $1,533 and $3,470 on wood fencing.
Finally, the one problem with wood that’s unavoidable is bugs. Many critters love the taste and smell of wood. You’ll want to treat your fence with insecticides if an infestation occurs. Otherwise, insects will nest in your wood, causing rotting that will reduce the lifespan of your purchase.
