"Composite fencing is much lighter and easier to fit. Often made from recycled materials which I think is a good thing. They are more expensive initially than wood but probably in the long run they work out cheaper as they won't rot like wood. I don't believe other than cleaning them there is any maintenance unlike wood which needs to be treated regularly"

"No maintenance
I think if they suit the style of the property and you intend to stay in the property for a while then the additional purchase cost wil recoup this premium for sure.

This material is subject to fading so ensure some warranty to protect you if this occurs"
