Vancouver Fencing Company Assesses the Merits of Wood vs. Metal for Patio Fencing

Vancouver Fencing Professionals QS Fencing Ltd. Compares How Wood Rates Against Metal in Their Latest Website Article

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - January 15, 2016) - QS Fencing, a fencing construction and repair company in Vancouver, has posted a blog relevant to any restaurant owners who may be considering fencing for their patio. The merits of wood over metal is a hotly contested topic in the fencing world, but in the rainy west coast environment it seems aluminum has the strategic advantage, particularly for commercial use. For more information, go to:

The blog lists three major criteria for consideration: aesthetics, durability, and maintenance. For example, many restaurants go to great lengths to cultivate their brand and look. While plain wood posts may be cheaper to install, the aesthetic flexibility of lightweight metal offers a much better return on investment. In other words, decorative metal or curved elements are relatively easy and inexpensive to fabricate compared to wood.

For durability, aluminum wins again. Pound for pound, a metal fence can put up with significantly more abuse than wood. Whether it's for commercial or residential use, you need to factor in a decent level of abuse -- from climbing and kicking to heavy rain and windstorms.

Finally, the blog tackles the idea of maintenance. With problems such as rotting and repainting, wood fences require consistent upkeep to keep them looking new. Even if you prefer an old world aesthetic, an antique-style metal fence will probably meet your needs better than a wooden one.

"It comes back to versatility and style," concludes the article. "Metal fencing offers exceptional flexibility and creative control while at the same time reducing the upkeep and repair costs compared to wood fencing."
