Choosing the Perfect Fence for Your Home

Choosing the Perfect Fence for Your Home

Choosing the right fence for your home can make a big difference in curb appeal and home value. It can also provide security and, if you choose, can increase privacy in your yard. Most fences are constructed of wood, vinyl, steel, aluminum, chain-link, or iron. What material you choose depends on the intended use, preferred style, and type of maintenance you are willing to provide.

Vinyl Fences
For easy maintenance and cost-effectiveness, many homeowners choose vinyl or composite fences. A vinyl fence doesn’t need repainted and creates a tidy, stream-lined look. It can be cleaned with simple soap and water. This type of fence also tends to include a longer warranty than many other types of fences due to the durability of vinyl materials. A vinyl fence can provide privacy from even the closest neighbors and can provide security.

Wood Fences
A classic wood fence, though it requires a bit more elbow grease to maintain, offers the most traditional look for your property. Wood fences can provide excellent privacy and security, depending on the height and style you choose. The type of wood you choose will determine how often the fence will need cleaned and painted or sealed. This type of fence is the most environmentally friendly and can last for your home’s lifetime.

Metal Fences
Metal fences, such as steel, aluminum, or iron, are often chosen to add decoration or improve your home’s aesthetic, while also establishing boundary lines on your property. They can break up the view, without obscuring it.

Aluminum fences require no maintenance, and also come in a large variety of colors and styles. Aluminum fences are often chosen to safely enclose swimming pools.

Custom iron fence designs can be made to your specifications to include intricate details. This type of fence allows the best opportunity to be creative in your design. Custom iron fences can become a family heirloom and can be completely one-of-a-kind.

There are endless fence styles available, including lattice, post and rail, scalloped, split-rail, French Gothic picket, and many more, each providing a different amount of coverage, security, and offering variability in style.
