Wood Fences Are Still an Important Part of the American Dream

Wood Fences American Dream

Wood fences have, for a very long time, played a major role in the lives of the American people. In 2007 alone, Americans put up 60,000 miles of wood fence.

The American Dream: You can be anything you want to be and do anything you want to do. This is the land of opportunity. If you want to be a doctor, go for it. If you want to be an artist, you be an artist. If you want to start a company, you start that company. And when you accomplish everything you want to accomplish, you buy a beautiful home in the suburbs with a white picket fence, two cars and 2.5 kids.

Wood fences have, for a very long time, played a major role in the lives of the American people. In 2007 alone, Americans put up approximately 60,000 miles of wood fence. That’s enough to circle the globe twice. So it’s no wonder the fencing industry is expected to grow by 7% every year through 2018. People love their wood fences, and for good reason.

The Benefits of Wood Fences

If you are interested in privacy, curb appeal, and increased home value, then a new wood fence might be the right choice for you.


Wood fences are simply beautiful, offering an aesthetic appeal unmatched by other fences. After all, there is a reason that other styles of fencing try to mimic the look and feel of wood.


Wood fences are some of the most affordable fences on the market today. Wood is significantly less expensive than vinyl or iron. Wood boards are easy to manufacture, easy to transport, and easy to install. That’s what we like to call a win-win.


While some people balk at the maintenance associated with wood fences, others use it as an opportunity. Unlike other style of fencing, wood allows more creative and flexibility as the years go on. Yes, you will have to paint or stain your fence every few years, but this also gives you the ability to completely transform the look of your wood fence to match your ever-changing style.
