Fence Selection Guide
When it comes to fencing, you have a bewildering selection of styles, materials, and sizes. If you are planning to install a fence there are a number of things you need to consider:
First, you will need to determine the purpose for your fence.
The basic purpose of a fence is to establish a boundary line either at the property line or perhaps around a swimming pool. Your fence selection should be determined by the function or primary purpose for the fence:
Privacy or Semi-Privacy
Increasing property value (i.e. sale of a home)
Wood Fence is the most popular choice among residential homeowners. Wood fences provide privacy and security, while adding aesthetics and value to your property. They are durable, rustic in appearance and low maintenance. $$$
Chain link fence (galvanized) is the most economical fence installation and a good choice if you have pets or children and just need to keep them in or out of an area; however, the purpose for this fence type is not privacy or security. Chain link fences come in many colors and can enhance the look of the fence $$ (add color $$$).
Ornamental steel or aluminum is the primary choice around water and swimming pools. The fence is strong and beautiful, offers security and is low maintenance, but offers no privacy. Definitely adds value to your property. $$$$
Vinyl will definitely increase beauty and value to your property. It is also durable and low maintenance and offers privacy; however, this fence is not as strong as some of the other choices and can be a bit pricey. $$$$$
