3 of the Most Durable Residential Fences

If the durability of your fence is a critical factor, there are a few options to choose from.

When it comes to choosing a residential fence for your property, the choices can be overwhelming. It’s a good idea to carefully consider what’s most important to you—affordability, aesthetics, materials, or durability, among other things. If the strength and life expectancy of your fence are among the more important aspects of your final design, there are several great materials that make for the most durable residential fences.

Wrought Iron & Steel

Metal fences will always be the most durable option for any kind of fencing. Metal is naturally strong and sturdy, so it just makes sense. To add to that, metal fencing is powder coated to give it even more durability and protect it in inclement weather. High winds won’t do as much damage to metal fencing due to the fact that they are low-profile designs with thin poles instead of flat panels, allowing wind to pass through without straining the structure of the fence. Wrought iron and ornamental steel are both excellent options for anyone who wants a stunning fence that will stay strong and look amazing for many years to come. 

Chain Link

Chain link is one of the most common fencing types for good reason—it’s sturdy and durable while also being highly affordable. It’s not the best-looking option, but a chain link fence will stay standing through many harsh winters and scorching summers. Like other metal fences, the permeable design of the chain link fence allows wind to pass through it which makes harsh weather conditions easier to withstand. A little bit of basic care and maintenance can keep your chain link fence standing for many years.


Unlike metal, PVC is a type of privacy fencing that uses flat panels to block visibility and create a uniform aesthetic around the perimeter of your home. While it’s not quite at the level of the toughness of metal fences, PVC is an excellent choice for anyone who wants a durable privacy fence that is low-maintenance and aesthetically pleasing. PVC will manage to withstand a lot of abuse, and a little bit of TLC will keep it looking perfect for a long time.
