What are your options when it comes to choosing a new fence? If you are buying a fence for the first time, here's what you will need to know, which will help you understand the basics of the most popular types of fences. The most basic types of fence available are aluminum, vinyl (also called PVC fence), chain link, and wood. There's also a new composite fence available. Let's take a look at each type so you can decide which fence type will benefit your home and yard the most.
Composite Fence. Composite materials are something new in the fence industry, but have been very successful since their inception. Composite materials are a combination of resin and wood flour. Although composite materials tend to be more expensive than other types of fence materials, using composite fence products is the best way to get a truly maintenance-free fence.
Aluminum Fence. Aluminum fence is usually black, with thin pickets and rails, but is also available in many other popular colors including white, bronze, green, and sandstone (beige). Aluminum fence materials come in four grades, from residential grade to industrial. The primary advantage of an aluminum fence over iron or steel is that it is much less expensive and will never rust. It also has a polished, sophisticated look and is moderately priced between wood and vinyl.
Vinyl Fence. Vinyl fences are made of PVC plastic, and are often seen in white, although there are also many color options available today, with some that even simulate the look of real wood. Quality vinyl fencing will last for many years with very little upkeep. Vinyl fencing is very popular and comes in a wide array of styles and colors sure to meet your needs. Vinyl is the most expensive of the fence materials, but worth the investment.
Chain Link Fence. Chain link is the fence used around baseball fields, schoolyards, and probably many yards in your neighborhood. It is also used in most industrial applications. Chain link fences are now offered in many colors, though it is still usually seen as galvanized steel posts with galvanized steel or green plastic coated fabric. Chain link fence is one of the most affordable fences and will be strong and functional for many years to come.
ustom Wood Fence: This type of fence is generally offered in red cedar with an estimated 20 year life span, although spruce is also popular but only offers a 12 year life span. This category of fence includes spaced picket fence, solid board fence (for privacy), shadowbox fence, tongue and groove fence, and lattice-topped fence. There are many variables in designing a custom wood fence, and any reputable fence contractor can help you make the best custom wood choice.
