Wood vs Chain Link; Which is Better?

Wood vs Chain Link; Which is Better?

Both wood and chain link fences come with their own set of pros and cons. Depending on what you’re looking for from your fence, you may find that one is better suited over another for the space around your house.

Consider these pros and cons with each of the fencing materials and decide which are going to be the best for you to work with.

Wood

Pros

  • Blocks out sound
  • Can be a privacy height
  • Looks nice
  • Keeps pets and children in the yard
  • Can be stained or painted

Cons

  • More costly
  • May not be perfect
  • Maintenance is required 

Chain Link

Pros

  • Keeps children and pets in the yard
  • Keeps people out
  • Affordable
  • Looks nice around a home
  • Easy fence to have installed
  • Little to no maintenance needed

Cons

  • Does not block out sound
  • Is not private by itself (but can have vinyl strips added for privacy)

When it comes to choosing the right fencing material for your home, you should consider what type of fence is going to provide the benefits you’re searching for. If you need a privacy fence, then chain link is not going to provide the benefits you need. If you just need something to go around the yard, keep pets in and keep the outside world out, then chain link might be beneficial.

It is ultimately your choice on the type of fencing material you choose to go with. Both options are high quality and look great when finished. Speak with a fencing contractor near you to find out which one might be the most ideal to put around your yard.
