However because of recent financial times, good, excellent wood is becoming more and more costly. As these price increases in timber continue to happen, and there is not any doubt that they will, the first cost of wood and
Vinyl fence are becoming almost the same.

Cost of Installation

The installation procedure for both wood and vinyl is the same. They both require the same prep work for post holes and concrete, as well as appropriate attention to detail with dimensions and utilising clean, sharp tools. However, Vinyl fence panels come with posts that are predrilled for suitable hardware placement with pre-cut railings and pickets, or if you enjoy the whole panel can even arrive preassembled. Vinyl saves you time, eliminates excess wasted material and the need to buy costly added tools. Vinyl is by far the more cost (and time) effective choice here.
