3 Main Materials for Residential Fences

The best fence for your property depends partially on the material you choose.

Residential fences hold many benefits, and one of these at least is bound to be the reason you are in search of the best one for you. They not only add valuable property protection and home value, but also can add privacy, curb appeal, and a way to keep your children and pets within bounds. Depending on your needs, you may want of these three main materials for residential fences over another.

Wood Fences

Although perhaps not as long-lasting and durable as other types of residential fences, wood fences are by far the most popular. They are a natural material that has no replacement. Its natural look and feel have no compare. Versatile, too, wood can conform to any style of fencing that you choose. The most common types of wood that fence installers use are pressure-treated pine and cedar. Pressure-treated pine has a coating to keep the wood from the ravages of moisture, insects, and harsh weather in general. Cedar naturally does so, as it has oil that repels insects and is of a hardy constitution. Maintenance includes the occasional powerwash, resealing, and replacement of worn-out boards.

Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fencing is famous for its durability and low-maintenance. It can come in a variety of colors to suit your landscape best and also can come in varying styles. Whether you want a picket fence, a privacy fence, or estate and paddock fence, vinyl can accommodate. As for maintenance, a vinyl fence may perhaps only need a powerwashing once in a while. It is an affordable option that needs little upkeep and will last for many years.

Aluminum Fences

If security is your number one priority, aluminum fencing may be your best choice. Aluminum railing cannot offer the privacy that wood and vinyl can, but they are by far the most durable. They are the perfect alternative to wrought iron fencing, which is far heavier and more expensive. Aluminum is affordable, lightweight, and easy to install, yet strong against impact and the elements. They also can come in other colors besides black to fit in with your property, like green or gold, and come in different styles.
