If you’re looking to create privacy in your backyard, or to add elegance and security to your residential or commercial property, wood-plastic composite (WPC) fence screening may be the best option available on the market today. But how do you know which WPC fence screening product is best for you? And how do you ensure that the installation of your WPC fence screening goes as smoothly as possible?
What is Wood Plastic Composite?
Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) is a new material that combines wood with polypropylene. This mixture makes durable and sustainable fence panels, decking and railing. Unifloor’s teak composite fence panels are made from more than 60% post-consumer recycled materials. They are extremely UV-resistant, and require minimal maintenance to stay looking great through decades of weather exposure. Though they’re relatively new, homeowners who have them installed say they look just like traditional teak fencing but are far more durable, never need painting or staining, and won’t rot or splinter like wood fence materials can over time.
Pros of Wood Plastic Composites
Wood plastic composites are a wonderful investment in your home. They provide privacy, aesthetic beauty and longevity while being easy to maintain with regular cleaning. These panels don’t rot or require painting, keeping their appearance fresh year after year. And when they do start looking worn out, they can be sanded down and re-stained again and again. Because of their durability, strength and overall resilience, wood plastic composites make a great barrier between you and neighbors or potential trespassers. The best wood fence screen materials are Unifloor composite panels made from sturdy but lightweight teak that won’t splinter or crack if hit by objects thrown over them. Another benefit of using WPC is that it adds value to your home’s price!
Where can you use it?
As many people know, a fence serves as an important means of keeping unwanted people and animals out of a yard or property. They also provide a degree of privacy to homeowners, helping to shield them from prying eyes. Unfortunately, most fences are made out of wood or metal, both materials that can damage a home’s exterior over time and need regular maintenance. Fortunately, there is an alternative to traditional fencing: wood plastic composite (WPC). This material features fiber-reinforced plastic polymer panels supported by a layer of cross-woven polypropylene fibers. Because it’s made using 100 percent recyclable materials and does not require additional treatments such as paints or stains, WPC is more environmentally friendly than some traditional fencing options.
How durable is it?
At Unifloor, we build our wood-plastic composite fence panels out of ultra-durable Western Red Cedar. This material is naturally resistant to rot and termites and doesn’t require chemical treatment to remain that way. Our teak fence screen won’t need constant touch ups throughout its lifetime, which saves you time and money! This natural hardwood also features a beautiful color that looks great against any background. Add in our UV protection coatings and you have an attractive fence panel that will last for years to come!

How much does it cost?
A teak composite fence panel is less expensive than other types of fencing but that doesn’t mean you should skimp on quality. The screen material of your fence can affect durability and how long it takes to stain or paint. Choose a composite teak panel because it’s so sturdy yet still offers plenty of flexibility. You can find these screens online in a variety of sizes and thicknesses, including 2-inch, 4-inch, 6-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch panels.
