Choosing a fence for your home is not something that should be considered lightly. It is a key element in the visual appeal of your home’s exterior design. Take into consideration the privacy and level of security you desire as well when selecting a fence for your home and landscape.  A fence that is installed properly is an element that ever homeowner wants.  Below are some styles to consider when looking into fences for your home.  Don’t only consider the look, privacy level or level of security but consider the maintenance levels and benefits to each type of material in fencing.

Aluminum Fencing

Aluminum fencing is one of the most durable, maintenance free, aesthetically pleasing materials available on the market.  It is also one of the most convenient materials to order and install as well.  Aluminum fencing comes in many several styles and colors to choose from.  It is definitely one of the most desirable options in fencing.

Wood Fencing

Wood fencing is a popular choice when considering a fence.  It offers a great deal of privacy given the different height panels available in wooden fencing.  Wood offers the benefit of being affordable and attractive.  Wooden fences offer a warm, welcoming feel to your home without necessarily breaking the bank.  If taken care of properly a wood fence can last a lifetime.

Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl fencing is in a category of all of its own.  It is not only affordable but nearly four times more flexible and is five times studier than wooden fence.  Another benefit of vinyl fence is that it is basically maintenance free.  With its strong resistance to paint, graffiti and unwanted stains will not settle in ensuring the fence stays looking as new as the day it was installed.  All you need to clean and maintain vinyl is some soap and water; it will look as good as new.  Vinyl may be a bit more expensive to install at first upfront but given the lifespan and maintenance free nature it is a popular option over cheaper fence materials.

Chain Link Fencing

Chain link doesn’t do much for privacy or aesthetics but it does keep pets and children in the yard and outsiders out.  The major benefit of chain link fencing is the cost and that it is durable and fairly maintenance free.  With a bit of creativity and smart landscaping chain link fencing can be made into something beautiful and cut the neighbors view off a bit.
