The climate, the style of your home, and the purpose of the fence will all play a role in selecting the best material for your fence. Fences hold many benefits. They add value to your property protection and home value. You may be thinking about more privacy, keeping the children and pets in bounds, and even curb appeal. Depending on your needs, you may choose one of these materials for your residential fence.
Wood is an attractive, classic material that works in any yard style and is by far the most popular. It’s also cheaper than other options. Cedar, teak, and redwood are popular fencing material types for their durable and long-lasting properties. Bamboo fencing has become an eco-trend option since it grows so fast. You can also look into pressure-treated woods to increase durability and resistance to rot and bugs. Wood fencing can last a couple of decades or more with proper care, though this can vary based on wood type. Maintenance includes the occasional power-wash, resealing and replacement of worn-out boards.
Vinyl fencing is famous for its durability and low maintenance. Vinyl fencing is the superstar of the fencing world. It’s very pricey but, if you can afford it, you may want to consider this type of fence. It’s both stronger and more flexible than wood. Plus, it’s maintenance-free and very easy to clean. It can also last from 20 to 30 years. As for maintenance, a vinyl fence may perhaps only need a power washing once in a while.
There are a few different types of metal fences that are popular, like aluminum, wrought iron, and chain-link fencing. However, metal has a very specific design aesthetic that may or may not work around your home. Aluminum railings cannot offer the privacy that wood and vinyl can. However, if security is your priority, aluminum fencing may be your best choice. For instance, wrought iron can add a stately feel. Chain link fencing is typically found in very casual yards. Certain metals, like wrought iron, can also require scraping and painting to keep rust and other signs of wear away. Metal fences tend to be inexpensive. And they serve purposes like keeping pets in without visually closing off the yard. Aluminum fences can last decades or longer with proper care. And they are easy to install yet strong against impact and the elements.
