Wood fences in Miami are a popular style of fence to choose from, and is traditionally used for common family households. For Miami residents desiring an aesthetically beautiful home, matched with durable quality and affordable prices, wood fences are an excellent choice. In fact, wood fence options typically involve two distinct types of wood; one being a less expensive wood called œpine pressure-treated wood, and secondly, a more expensive wood that is not pressure-treated at all. What's the difference? Well, it's important to note that pressure-treated wood may not be the most greatest-looking wood fence, but it'll provide good enough resistance against weathering, bugs, and rodents.
As opposed to pine pressure-treated wood, Ipe is a more exotic tropical hardwood, and is more expensive as a result. This type of wood is very dense, so it's mostly used for residents who are in need of durable fences. Also, another plus side to Ipe is that it doesn't require adding unpleasant chemicals to your fences as found in pine treatment. They are great for providing resistance against unpredictable Miami, Florida weather conditions.
If you are not convinced that wood fences would be suitable for your home, there many other styles to choose from, so you should not limit yourself to only one style. All Fencing and Repair provides ornamental fences, aluminum fences, composite fences, and pvc. Remember, it's always a good idea to apply a weather seal, no matter which type of wood fence you choose. This is the case for all wood fences installed in Miami, and benefits homeowners in the long run.
A weather seal will extend the expected life-time of your fence. In fact, it is recommended to seal it properly every year, which will double the life-time of your fence. And if you are sealing pressure-treated wood, it's important to wait a few weeks before placing a water repellent. Here's a good test to know whether or not it's the right time to seal your wood fence: sprinkle water on it, and if it absorbs the water quickly, then you can go ahead and seal it. If not, let it dry some more and then seal it later.
