Choosing the right colour for your fence can be challenging if you do not already have a colour scheme. Even if you do, selecting a colour that will match or align with your theme may be another concern.

Features Of A Good Fence

One main characteristic of a composite fence is that it is easy to install. This is because cutting it into sizes is simple. The fencing panel is lightweight, meaning that you can carry it easily. Not a lot of tools are required to install it. Although not a lot of knowledge is needed, for the best finish, we always recommend a professional’s assistance.

Another benefit of a composite fence is that it is easy to maintain. All you need to get your fence cleaned is a soft bristle brush and hot, soapy water. There is no need to oil it, paint it, or seal it regularly to make it last longer.

Composite fencing is resistant to cracking, splinting, wrapping, and insect attacks. 

Composite fencing does come in a variety of colours, qualities, and finishes. You can match your fencing to your decking, house windows and doors and garden furniture.

Just bear in mind that composites will fade. If the fencing composite is first-generation, then it will be expected to fade anything from 20 to 40 percent in the first couple of months. It will then level off but continue to fade throughout its life.

The second-generation fence will still fade. However, this will be at a much slower rate. The reason it will fade slowly is because a second-generation fence panel has a protective layer around the outside of the panel.

Consider the Location

As mentioned above, your composite fencing will fade, and the degree of the fade will depend on the UV exposure. This is something to consider when selecting the colour of your fence. If your fence panels are installed in a south-facing area and you want a medium grey colour, then you might consider ordering a darker grey to start with, as you are taking into account that it will fade.

Consider Colour Around the Fence

You can consider the colours of the structures around the fence. If your building is painted a specific colour and you want other structures in your garden to complement them.

A brick or red exterior house might blend with a brown composite fence. 

The same goes for a grey or dark grey house. This means that you can colour match when you install your fence.

Consider Your Taste

Taste, as used here, means feel or what appeals to you. If you want a light gray-colored composite fence, you can go for it. If you want a dark oak composite fence, it is your choice and your money. Just take into consideration that your light grey fence may not stay looking light grey after mud splashes and leaves fall, and, therefore, you will need cleaning very regularly.

The essence of choosing colour is based on personal choice. If you want a specific colour that appeals to you, a fence with that colour will be right. But if you have no taste for a particular colour, any colour will match your garden.


Choosing the right composite fencing colour is easy, and it depends on your taste or preference and the colour of any other structure in your garden.
