There are plenty of practical uses for a fence: to gain privacy, safely corral kids and pets, block wind and noise, and prevent unsupervised dips in a swimming pool. But the right fence also makes a strong aesthetic statement, improving a home’s curb appeal. Consider the following factors for your new fence: Privacy: Depending on your privacy needs a fence could be either a partial or complete shield from the world. Security: Children and pets can be safely enclosed inside, and strangers can be kept outside. Appearance: The big decision, how do you want your fence to look? Do you want a classic rustic wood design or an ornate regal iron fence?
1. Wood Fences.
The go-to “classic” option for fences, wood fences are favored by customers for their virtually infinite diversity. Wood fencing is inexpensive, lightweight, and can be easily shaped to give your home a unique character. Wood fences come in dozens of styles such as linear post-and-rail, crisscrossing lattice, multiple picket patterns, and post cap designs.
2. Iron Works Fence.
Iron is known as sturdy, durable, and ornamental. Just the same, an iron fence is a way to make a strong aesthetic statement for your home. Iron is very malleable so it can be shaped into several decorative designs. The additional security an iron fence brings due to its toughness is a welcome asset.
3. Vinyl & PVC Fence.
The main benefit of a vinyl or PVC fence is minimal maintenance. Whereas wood and iron require routine care to prevent weathering, vinyl and PVC can be cleaned with soap and water then hosed down. Installation is easy and inexpensive as well. Vinyl fences can be molded to match the specific environment and landscaping.
4. Chain Link Fence.
A chain-link fence, sometimes called a wire netting or wire mesh fence, Consists of interlocking series of steel threads in a zigzag pattern. Chain link fences are praised for their flexibility. The nature of the chain link makes it so you can mold the fence around awkward property boundaries and it is very lightweight and easy to set up. You can insert the fence posts then unroll the mesh from post to post. Chain link fences give high security and durability while also being relatively cheap and lightweight.
