Fence Wall Comparison

Building a fence wall requires many considerations. Most customers look for a fence that is decorative and will install quickly. People want a wall that will last a long time, is structurally sound and causes as little disruption as possible in the construction process. Safety is also an important factor in the installation of the product. With so many different options available today, a quick comparison between the most popular products on the market would be beneficial.

Wood and Vinyl Fence
These fences are the fastest to install, yet can be costly to maintain over time. A wood fence will fade, rot and deteriorate. Vinyl fencing looks clean and fairly attractive when new but can often become chalky, warp, splinter, sag and break over time.

Stone, Block, and Brick Walls
These fence walls are labor intensive to build requiring each piece to be individually installed on a continuous footing. Shifting and settling of the ground can cause unsightly cracks and fissures along the mortar lines, which can eventually weaken the wall and even cause its failure.

Conventional Concrete Fence Systems
These wall systems are supplied in separate columns and panels and there are two types of systems presently available.

The StoneTree™ System
Our unique system will change your mind about concrete fence walls with a revolutionary alternative to traditional panel and column concrete fence construction. StoneTree™ one piece panel/column fence wall section takes less than half the time required for a traditional two piece or stackable panel and column construction and the rigid footing support system gives greater stability during fence wall installation, as well as over-all strength over time. Easy to install, easy to maintain, yet remaining stable and durable, the StoneTree™ fence wall system offers the best features of all of the concrete fence systems available today...and more.
