Ready For A New Fence?
What Fence Material Is Right For You?
These days, there are quite a few materials with which you can build a custom fence.
- Varieties of Wood Fence
- Ornamental Aluminum Fence
- Polyvinyl Fence
- Chain Link Fence
- Specially Designed Pool Fence
With so many options out there, it is hard to decide which one you like best or will work best with your home. To assist in the decision-making process, here are some things to take into consideration for your new fencing project.
Don’t Overlook Your Style.
The first thing that should be in your mind is your personal preference in design and style. You want something that you won’t mind looking at every day outside your home. We can do some pretty unique things with fence design these days. The material, color and any additional accouterments should pair well with that of your home’s exterior. This will help narrow down your choices.
Consider The Function of Your Fence.
Next, you should think about why you want this fence. Is it for the security of your children or family pets? Are you securing a fence? Do you want a little privacy from nosy neighbors? Do you still want a view? Vinyl fencing is great for privacy, but can block the view beyond your yard. So considering the function and purpose of your fence is incredibly important in determining the fence fit for you.
Third, you should consider how much maintenance work you are willing to put into the fence. Some wood fence styles – while classic and beautiful – require regular upkeep. Other fence materials, such as aluminum and vinyl, are virtually maintenance-free. If you know you aren’t the type of person to keep up with staining, painting, and cleaning, then stay away from higher-maintenance materials.
Price Matters Too.
Last, but certainly not least, you must take your budget into account. Believe it or not, the price difference between some fencing materials can be rather vast. However, when you add maintenance costs into the mix, spending more up front may save you in the long run. Be sure to discuss pricing in detail with your professional fencing contractor.
