Given our standing in the composite fencing industry, we’re able to answer any questions you may have regarding our products. So, if you’re thinking of investing in some composite fencing but you’re not sure whether they’re the right fit for your garden design, here are a few of the most common questions we get about them so you can make an informed decision. What is composite fencing? Composite fencing is a type of fencing material made from a blend of wood fibre and plastic. The wood fibre provides strength and durability while the plastic helps to make the fence more resistant to weathering and rot. Composite fencing is known for its low maintenance requirements and long-lasting durability. What’s more, it’s available for the very best prices right here at North Valley Composites – our composite fencing boards are perfect for enhancing your property with all the charm and natural appeal of wood, complemented by exceptional durability and weather resistance. How does composite fencing compare to other types of fencing materials? Compared to other types of fencing materials, such as wood or vinyl, composite fencing is generally more durable and requires less maintenance. It’s far less likely to rot or warp over time, and it doesn’t require painting or staining. As a result of their added durability, our composite fencing panels require a little more investment than other fencing materials, but it’s definitely a worthwhile investment in the long run due to its longevity and low maintenance requirements. If you’re looking for a set-it-and-forget-it fencing solution, composite is the one for you. Is composite fencing environmentally friendly? Yes. Composite fencing is definitely an environmentally friendly option, as it is made from a blend of recycled materials such as wood chips and plastic. Additionally, because composite fencing does not require regular maintenance like painting or staining, it can help to reduce the use of harmful chemicals that are often used in traditional fence maintenance. What’s more, they don’t require replacing nearly as much as more traditional timber fence panels, meaning you won’t use as many materials for your fence over a lifetime. Can composite fencing be installed by homeowners? Generally speaking, our composite fencing kits are designed to be easily installed by homeowners. However, if you’d feel more comfortable hiring a professional to install it for you, then feel free to do so! Proper installation is important to ensure the fence is secure and stable, and a professional installer will have the necessary tools and experience to do the job correctly, so if you’re unsure, it’s best to call someone out to help you. Or better yet, save yourself some money by asking a DIY savvy friend to give you a hand. How does composite fencing hold up in extreme weather conditions? Composite fencing is designed to be highly durable and resistant to weathering, including extreme temperatures and moisture. Unlike wood, which can warp and rot in wet conditions, composite fencing maintains its shape and strength even in heavy rain or snow. It is also resistant to fading and discolouration from UV exposure, making it a good option for areas with intense sunlight. Overall, composite fencing is a strong and reliable option for a variety of weather conditions. Our composite fencing is the low-maintenance option that can keep your space looking at its very best for a decade or more. What’s more, we provide composite fencing in a variety of different colours like Golden Oak or Driftwood.
