Composite Fencing—An Eco-Friendly Choice For Your Property

Eco-friendly composite fencing contains a mix of wood and plastic. If your fencing contractor offers this type of fencing, you should learn more about the environmentally friendly attributes of composite fencing. Then, compare the cost of composite fencing with new fencing materials that possess similar properties. 

Composite Materials

A composite is a mixture of various elements. Composite fencing is a blend of two or more components. Composite fencing that is designed to look like wood or vinyl is typically constructed of a mix of wood and plastic. Old wood and plastic that have been recycled are used to create composite fencing panels, posts, end caps, and other fencing materials. During the manufacturing of composite products, hardware is removed from the wood.

Then the wood is ground down into a fine powder and the plastic is melted. The two components are combined together and molded into various fencing products. Composite materials aren't only used in the fencing industry. They are also used to create flooring, decorative features, and other commercial and residential items that are of value. The use of composite materials saves valuable resources. It also reduces the amount of trash that winds up in landfills.

Composite Fencing Products

If your fencing contractor is featuring eco-friendly fencing products, take a look at the brochures or physical samples of the products that your contractor shares with you. Pictures and actual products that you can physically handle will demonstrate the craftsmanship of the fencing materials.

Fencing styles include single fencing panels that are anchored to posts and fencing products that contain cutouts. Composite fencing is used to enclose commercial and residential properties. It can be custom colored too. 

The Cost Comparison And The Acquisition Of Materials

Your contractor will outline the cost of composite materials. Once you have settled on a fencing style, your contractor will let you know how much it would cost to have the composite fencing professionally installed. Compare the quote that your contractor provides with other costs that they charge for chain-link, wood, vinyl, and metal fencing.

After you have decided to use composite fencing to enclose part of your commercial property, your fencing contractor will get to work on planning the project. They will need to measure and mark the property where the fencing will be installed.

They will also need to sit down with you and discuss the composite materials that you would like your fencing to contain. Your contractor may order supplies directly from a fencing company that sells recycled materials. Once the fencing materials have been shipped to your property, the fencing installation project can commence.
