There are a variety of fencing styles and materials to choose from. Here we will break down the different materials and styles so you can best choose your next fence installation:
Wooden fencing is the most popular fencing option. It is moderately priced, has a traditional appeal, and can be painted or stained any color you choose. Wooden fencing does require more maintenance than other fencing materials, however, the repairs are relatively simple. Below you will find information about the more common wood fence varieties and styles.
Wood privacy fencing usually comes 6 or 8 feet high and is meant to create a visual and physical barrier. It creates privacy while blocking road noise and containing pets/people. The common barrier fencing styles are stockade, solid board, and board on board. There are also different options regarding post caps, top rails, fascia boards, and the curve/cut of the top.
Spaced or picket fencing is usually shorter in height. It’s not meant to block sight or provide security, but is meant to define a perimeter in an attractive way while stopping people and/or animals from easily crossing. Again there are different styles and a variety of options along with each one.
Farm fencing is most often post + rail built. It’s meant to cover a lot of ground, keep livestock in, and/or mark the perimeter of larger properties.
Vinyl Fencing is essentially a substitute for wooden fencing. It comes in just about any style you would find wooden barrier or spaced fencing. Vinyl is more expensive than wood, but will never rot and is easy to clean. While vinyl doesn’t require any regular maintenance, if the fence were to break the repairs are more complicated than wooden fencing.
Metal fencing provides a physical barrier, security, and defines a property with a more formal appearance. Metal fencing can be made from aluminum, steel, or iron.
Aluminum fencing is a common choice among homeowners. Aluminum fencing is cheaper than steel or iron fencing and it is lightweight/easy to install. In addition to the lower cost, aluminum fencing doesn’t rust and can be easily recycled. The downside to aluminum fencing is that the metal is much weaker than steel or iron and could be broken or bent. Aluminum Fencing is great for most residential use but is not as secure as other types of metal fencing.
Steel Fencing is a very sturdy, secure, and long lasting fencing option. Steel fence can rust over time but, is most often galvanized/painted to prevent this. Steel fencing is more expensive than aluminum fencing and is more often used for public or industrial installations.
Wrought Iron Fencing is also very strong and sturdy, but unlike steel it can be worked and shaped into more intricate designs. Iron fencing is more expensive than steel, but can achieve a more detailed and classic look.
Chain Link Fence
Chain link fencing is inexpensive, maintenance free, and durable. It is used for more utilitarian purposes. A plain chain link fence doesn’t provide the best privacy or security in that they can easily be climbed, however, plastics slats are an easy way to create privacy while making the fence harder to climb.
