Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is composite fencing and why is it a better alternative to wood fences?

 

Composite fences are innovative and durable alternatives to traditional wood and metal fencing. These fences are crafted from a combination of recycled wood fibers and plastic, creating a product that boasts the natural aesthetic of wood while offering the low-maintenance benefits of plastic. The composite material resists rot, decay, and insect damage, making it an ideal choice for long-lasting outdoor structures. Additionally, composite fences often come in a variety of styles and colors, allowing homeowners to customize their fencing to match the aesthetic of their property. With the added bonus of being eco-friendly by utilizing recycled materials, composite fences are a sustainable and aesthetically pleasing option for those seeking a modern and enduring fencing solution. 

2. What are the advantages of composite fencing compared to traditional wood fencing?

 

Composite fencing offers several advantages compared to traditional wood fencing. Here are some key benefits:

 

1) DURABILITY

Composite Fencing: Resistant to rot, decay, and insects, composite fencing tends to be more durable than wood. It doesn't warp, splinter, or crack, providing a longer lifespan.

Wood Fencing: Prone to rotting, warping, and insect damage over time. Regular maintenance, such as staining and sealing, is often required to extend the life of a wood fence.

2) LOW MAINTENANCE

Composite Fencing: Requires minimal maintenance. It doesn't need to be painted or stained, and it can be cleaned easily with soap and water. It maintains its appearance without the need for ongoing upkeep.

Wood Fencing: Typically requires regular maintenance, including staining or painting to protect against the elements. Wood may also need to be treated for pests and inspected for rot.

3) APPEARANCE

Composite Fencing: Available in various styles and colors, composite fencing can mimic the look of wood while providing a consistent appearance. It often has a more modern and polished aesthetic.

Wood Fencing: Offers a classic, natural look. However, the appearance can vary based on the type of wood used and the maintenance it receives.

 

4) ECO-FRIENDLY

Composite Fencing: Many composite materials use recycled wood fibers and plastics, making them a more environmentally friendly option.

Wood Fencing: While wood is a renewable resource, the harvesting and processing of wood can have environmental impacts. Additionally, the use of pressure-treated wood involves chemicals that may raise environmental concerns.

 

5) RESISTANCE TO FADING AND WEATHERING

Composite Fencing: Resistant to fading and weathering, composite materials often maintain their color and structural integrity for a more extended period compared to wood.

Wood Fencing: Susceptible to fading and weathering over time, especially if not adequately sealed or stained.

 

6) CONSISTENCY

Composite Fencing: Offers a consistent appearance since it is manufactured. This uniformity can be appealing for those looking for a polished and modern aesthetic.

Wood Fencing: Natural variations in wood can result in an uneven appearance. Knots, grain patterns, and color variations may be present.

 

7) PEST RESISTANCE

Composite Fencing: Generally resistant to pests like termites, which can be a significant concern with wood fencing.

Wood Fencing: Prone to insect infestations, especially if it's not treated with insect-resistant chemicals.

While composite fencing may have a higher upfront cost compared to wood, the long-term savings in maintenance and replacement costs can make it a cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing choice for many homeowners.

​3. What are the benefits of composite fencing compared to vinyl fencing

Composite fencing and vinyl fencing are both popular alternatives to traditional wood fencing, each with its own set of advantages. Here are some benefits of composite fencing compared to vinyl fencing:

 

1) APPEARANCE

Composite Fencing: Often designed to mimic the look of wood, composite fencing can have a more natural and textured appearance. It can be found in various colors and styles, providing a versatile aesthetic.

Vinyl Fencing: Generally has a clean and uniform appearance, and it is available in a range of colors. However, it might lack the texture and depth that some people prefer in a fence.

 

2) DURABILITY

Composite Fencing: Typically made from a combination of recycled wood fibers and plastic, composite fencing is known for its durability. It is resistant to rot, decay, and insects, which can be concerns with traditional wood fencing.

Vinyl Fencing: Also resistant to rot and insects, vinyl is a durable material. However, it may become brittle over time, especially in extreme weather conditions, leading to potential cracking or damage.

 

3) MAINTENANCE

Composite Fencing: Requires minimal maintenance. It doesn't need to be stained or painted, and it won't warp or splinter. Periodic cleaning with soap and water is usually sufficient to keep it looking good.

Vinyl Fencing: Like composite, vinyl is low-maintenance. It doesn't need to be painted or stained, and it is easy to clean. However, it may be prone to staining from certain substances, and some homeowners prefer a periodic washing.

 

4) ECO-FRIENDLY

Composite Fencing: Often made from recycled materials, including wood fibers and plastics, making it a more environmentally friendly option.

Vinyl Fencing: While some vinyl fencing is made from recycled materials, not all of it is, and the production of vinyl involves the use of non-renewable resources.

4. Is composite fencing suitable for the West Coast's weather?

Yes, composite fencing is well-suited for Vancouver's climate. It is designed to withstand varying weather conditions, including rain, snow, and summer heat. The material is resistant to moisture which prevents warping, cracking and rotting commonly associated with a wood fence. Composite fencing maintains its structural integrity and appearance over time.

5. Can composite fencing be installed by homeowners, or is professional installation necessary?

Composite fencing can be installed by homeowners, especially if they have experience with DIY projects. However, for a seamless and professionally finished look, many prefer to have it installed by the professionals at Cosmos Decks & Railings.

6. Are there colour and style options available for composite fencing?

Yes, composite fencing offers a wide range of colours, styles, and finishes to suit various design preferences. From natural wood tones to contemporary greys and charcoals, there are options to complement all homes.

7. Is composite fencing environmentally friendly?

Yes, composite fencing is considered an eco-friendly alternative. Made from recycled materials, it reduces the demand for new wood and minimizes waste. Furthermore, because composite fencing doesn't require frequent replacements due to decay or damage, it contributes to the overall sustainability of outdoor living spaces.
