VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 20, 2016) - As a fencing repair and installation company, QS Fencing has been in business since 2010. As installers who work in the industrial, commercial, and housing markets, QS Fencing has posted a blog that explains why they generally advise against wood as a fencing material in Vancouver.

When people think of residential fencing, odds are it's the image of a pristine white picket that first comes to mind. However, choosing the right fencing material is critical for prolonging longevity and reducing the expense associated with constant fencing repairs. The wooden picket may be part of the dream, but Vancouver's climate renders this choice impractical.
While wooden fences are cheaper to install, the constant dampness typically necessitates regular cleaning and painting. In the worst case scenario, life will be a constant struggle again mildew and dirt, which means a new coat of paint every year-a considerable ongoing expenditure that will quickly add up over the lifetime of the fence. These costs could climb even higher if planks are damaged or rot sets in.
An aluminum fence costs more upfront, but maintenance costs are drastically reduced. Aluminum doesn't rust, and the superior quality it provides means that many manufacturers are willing to back up their products with a very good warrantee.
Another advantage of aluminum fencing is the gates-which are lightweight and strong. They work well for both foot traffic and driveways, and can be set up to open with a button, passcode, or fob.
For homeowners who are planning to sell, the draw of a low-maintenance yard is a great way to entice buyers who will likely factor in potential fence repair and maintenance costs when making an offer.
For all these reasons, steel and aluminum fences are an increasing popular choice for homeowners in Vancouver. For estimates on all services, including fencing repair and installations, schedule an appointment by calling QS Fencing at (604) 345-5145.
