Advantages of Wood Looking PVC Fences

Wood looking PVC fences have numerous advantages over traditional wooden fences.

Firstly, they require significantly less maintenance. Unlike wooden fences that sometimes need painting, staining, and sealing, wood looking PVC fences simply need occasional rinse with a garden hose to maintain their pristine appearance. This not only saves you time and effort but also eliminates the need for ongoing expenses associated with maintaining a wooden fence.

Secondly, wood looking PVC fences are highly durable and long-lasting. The PVC material used in these fences is resistant to rot, warping, and termite damage, ensuring that your fence will stay intact and beautiful for years to come.

Additionally, high quality PVC fences are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, including heavy rain, snow, and intense sunlight, without losing their color or texture. You know we can really experience any type of weather in New Jersey, so this is a big factor! A fence in always an investment, so going with PVC can really pay off in the long run.

The Two Types of Wood Looking PVC Fences

There are two main strategies manufacturer’s use to get PVC fences looking like wood fences.

The first strategy is to actually add texture to the vinyl fence. So if you ran your hand over the panels or pickets, you’d feel groves. The second option is painting the PVC fence so that i appears to look like wood. So if you ran your hand over the panels, it would be smooth like a regular vinyl fence.

New Jersey homeowners choose both types of fences, so it’s up to you to decide what you like best! You can always have one of the The Good Fence People visit to help you decide which is best for your property.

The first type of vinyl fence that appears to be wood is a textured or molded fence. Some property owners prefer these PVC profiles because of their slightly more realist look. 

We proudly install BuffTech fence products. Their molded options are actually molded from real wood for the most authentic looking finish possible.

Smooth PVC Fences That Look Like Wood

The second type of finish for these types of fence is a smooth finish. Manufacturer’s accomplish this look by blending together paint to make it look like wood and adding painted grooves and even painted knots! One of our trusted suppliers for this type of fence is Grand Illusions Vinyl WoodBond.

There are five main colors to choose from if you decide to go this route. If you are looking for something classic, their Eastern White Cedar, Walnut, or Mahogany are great choices. If you want something a little more bold, you can go with the brighter Rosewood or the grey-washed Driftwood.

The fact of the matter is: Unless someone is extremely close to your fence, they probably aren’t going to noticed if it’s textured or not. A lot of people make their decisions based on the styles and colors offered by the manufacturer and, of course, the price!
