Masonry Stone Walls
Stone walls are not only very expensive and take a very long time to install, they break down over time. Individual rock become loose and fall to the ground, usually due to stress, weather and pressure washing. They also require a significant amount of maintenance.
Vinyl fencing can last for years, but lacks that decorative touch. And unfortunately, does not hold up well to the tough Central Florida climate. Wind, rain, and high temperatures, make the vinyl fencing brittle and discolor. Leaving it easily damaged, once damaged it can compromise a very large portion of the fence, making repairs difficult and costly. It also cannot be used for Hardscapes and retaining walls.
Unfortunately, the charm of a wood fence quickly fades away with all the maintenance, cleaning, painting, and repair costs that comes with keeping wood looking good. Wood fences are vulnerable to rotting, bugs, termites, they are not fire resistant, and will need to be replaced in about 10 years. They also can’t be used for Hardscapes or retaining walls.
