Steel Fence Panels vs. Wood Fence Panels
When installing new fence panels, there’s many choices. One of the most important, however, is what type of material you’ll choose – steel or wood.
Here are the main considerations when choosing between steel fencing and wood fencing:
- Looks: Wood is a more charming, natural look that’s warm and welcoming, while metal fencing provides a more utilitarian aesthetic.
- Performance: Wood fencing is subject to rot and warping even with regular maintenance, whereas metal fencing will last for decades with minimal maintenance. For both materials, fencing hardware and parts are readily available and generally easy to replace yourself.
- Installation: Wood is easier to handle than metal, as it’s lighter and screwed together easily. However, manufacturers will often provide pre-assembled metal fencing systems to make installation easier for steel gates, corrals and other styles.
