Fundamentals of Fencing: Choosing A Material

Picking the right fence can feel like deciding what to wear when you win your first Oscar – whatever you decide, it’s going to stick with you for a long time and you probably want to make sure it’s the right fit BEFORE the big debut. However, you’re a little more likely to get a fence, so here are some style and utility tips to consider for the best turnout.

Wood Fence: A classic. Wood fences offer privacy and allow for versatility, coming in a range of styles or structural designs. They can be stained, painted, or shown off for their natural coloring for a variety of looks, and their structural design allows for plenty of variation when forming a perimeter around a uniquely-shaped property. Wood fences are a simple, economical way to protect your property boundaries and enhance the utility of your backyard. Expect wood fences to last five to ten years before they need to be replaced, depending on the weather.

Aluminum Fence: Aluminum fencing is attractive and low-maintenance. Our premium quality aluminum fences are powder-coated to prevent rust and enhance resistance to weathering. Enhance the elegance of your property with an aluminum fence. We offer a variety of styles and colors to suit your home and maximize your security. Aluminum fences are ideal for gates and entryways as they do not offer significant privacy but are excellent for keeping out intruders.

Vinyl Fence: Vinyl fences offer the most for your investment. The continuous structure provides the most privacy of all fence types, and the dense body deters intruders while keeping pets and children inside the boundaries of your property. Experience your outdoor space for its full potential without the unwanted attention of neighbors and indulge in the serenity of your private backyard getaway. Our vinyl fences come in a wide selection of colors and styles to complement your home. They are maintenance-free and resistant to strong winds and other weather conditions for secure, lasting protection.
