Which Material Should You Choose For Your Fence?

Fence material

Deciding on the right fence material for you? Use this guide to help make your choice.

Your home’s fence is important for both practical and aesthetic reasons. Not only does it protect you and your family and provide privacy, but your fence is also a means to express your home’s style. Many people choose a fence that matches their home’s exterior, providing a nice complement to it. The material you use for your fence is an important decision to make. Here is some information about different materials that you can use to help with your decision.

Wood

Wood fences are beautiful and sturdy fences that evoke a classic look. Their strength is perhaps their greatest feature, so you know that if you get a wood fence you will have it for years to come. One thing to consider though is the need for regular maintenance. You will have to weatherproof your wood fence to protect it from the elements. Failing to do this can result in your fence rotting, which can be expensive to repair. If you know that you will not have the time to do weatherproof your fence, then you may want to consider another option.

Vinyl

Using vinyl for your fence is an excellent choice. It isn’t susceptible to rotting like wood fences or rust like some metal fences. This means that they are relatively low-maintenance. You only have to remember to clean your vinyl fence and ensure that the ground below it hasn’t shifted. Also, these fences are highly customizable, meaning that you can use them to show off your sense of style.

 

Aluminum

These fences are great because they are low-maintenance and are more resistant to corrosion than other metals. Corrosion usually results from precipitation, which can be a problem if you don’t add a finish to your fence. You won’t have to worry about weatherproofing your aluminum fence. Aluminum fences are ideal for people who want a low-maintenance fence that can be used in several places around their property.
