We are doing a series on Vinyl Fencing, taking a look at the value of vinyl fencing compared to wood fencing, maintenance of vinyl fencing, qualities of vinyl fencing, and choosing a privacy vinyl fence. Today, we are focusing on choosing a privacy vinyl fence.
Let’s talk about backyard privacy fencing and what it costs!
First, most people only purchase a home 2 or 3 times over the course of their lives. They may even purchase a home that has an existing fence. Here are some important questions to consider when purchasing a fence:
How long do you plan to live here…
- starter home (1 – 5 years)
- family home (10 – 25 years)
What is your budget…
Short term budget vs. long term budget. Natural wood fencing is less expensive on the front, but long term (10 + years) vinyl fencing is hands down the winner! Check out this Vinyl Fencing vs. Wood Fencing where we dive into the details of savings!
