why choose recycled plastic fences & gates?
You may be in two minds as whether or not to invest in a new material such as recycled plastic, that you may never have used before, or stick to traditional wood. Below is a little more information on our maintenance free fencing that may help enlighten your decision...
What makes recycled plastic so different to wood composite?
Wood, and even composite materials, will rot over time. This is due to their structure, with wood being a naturally organic and biodegradable material, and composite wood containing a mixture of plastic, wood and straw. However with natural wood, you can prolong the life of the material by maintaining it with either paint, oils, stains or treated preservatives. However, these require more cost and man hours on an annual occurrence. Some treated preservatives can also carry a negative stigma with them due to uncertainties about their affect on the environment.
Recycled plastic on the other hand will not rot over time at all. The durability that comes with plastic is unrivalled, combine that with the fact that our materials are made from discarded waste plastic that would otherwise be destined for landfill or the ocean, and you've got yourself a durable, maintenance-free, low-carbon, rot-proof building material that will last for decades. Not to mention, our materials are versatile and can be worked with in the same way as wood. For more information on working with plastic wood, check out our guide.
