All of these alternative materials certainly have their pros and cons and all offer good reasons to abstain from purchasing a standard wood fence.
Of all the alternatives available however it is bamboo that is gaining the most ground in terms of popularity amongst homeowners and even some new construction contractors. This is because bamboo is one of the most durable and environmentally friendly materials to utilize in the construction of anything. It's also one of the most aesthetically pleasing materials homeowner can elect to use for their new fence. A home with a bamboo fence stands out in any neighborhood that it might be a part of.

Homeowners who want to save time and money on maintenance, repairs, and replacements should definitely give bamboo some heavy consideration. A homeowner's wallet, home, and appraisal value will thank them for that consideration.
