Moreover, some places may have limits on the dimensions, color, and design of a fence. It is important to check with your local regulation regarding this to avoid problems. You can consult the rules agreed upon by the homeowner’s association in your neighborhood or your local ordinances.

On the other hand, wooden fences need more maintenance. This includes annual painting. Certain treatment procedures done for lumber products can increase the lifespan of a wooden fence.
