The Split Rail Fence design/materials have recently seen a resurgence in popularity over the past fifteen years. Why? Good question! We have been trying to figure that out for a while. Our gut tells us that homeowners are opting for split rail fences because they compliment older, more traditional homes (which are starting to see a comeback as well).
The simplicity and natural look of a wooden split rail fences are timeless. Maybe they remind us of a time when life was simpler. Whatever the reason for the rise in popularity of split rail fences, you are sure to see at least one the next time you drive down a residential neighborhood.
Besides styling a yard well, split rail fences are generally much less expensive then some other fencing materials. The exact price depends on what materials you go with (wood, vinyl, etc) and the amount that needs to be installed. Vinyl, although not a “traditional” material, definitely holds up longer in bad weather. This is because vinyl is made from a plastic called “Polyvinyl chloride” or just “PVC” for short. You probably know what type of plastic this is, it’s used for plastic pipes in homes for various reasons.
