As a homeowner, you will find that there is a vast variation of fence options to choose from and many things to consider before the installation of a fence. You want to make sure the fence you pick meets the needs of your home. Whether your goal is to keep kids and pets contained, increase privacy, or simply boost property value by giving the yard a nice look. Though, for those with a more hectic lifestyle, an easier option may be more appealing, a fence that looks good but also provides the option for lesser maintenance schedule, allowing you to use your free time for more beneficial activities.
The Choice is Yours!
- Vinyl Fences: Some vinyl fences offer removable posts and railings, so you can easily take down a section of fence to drive a vehicle through, then put it back up. Due to their design and smooth finish dirt and debris can be easily washed off with water.
- Aluminum Fences: While not only a great option to keep children and pets corralled and safe, an aluminum fence is the easiest low maintenance fence to install. Not only an appealing visual option, it also won’t fade or rust like other materials, such as, steel or iron.
- Composite Fences: These are made of recycled plastic mixed with wood fiber, the same material used for low-maintenance decking. Though, they have a duller surface than vinyl, they can hide scratches considerably better.
- Steel Fences: Though, not as low maintenance as aluminum fences, the main benefit of steel is its sustained durability. The toughest fence available in today’s market, it is nearly impossible to bend or damage.
Ask yourself how much time you want to spend maintaining your fence. Wooden fencing requires the most maintenance because of the fence painting and staining required every couple of years, but it can boost your property value by making your yard aesthetically pleasing. Aluminum or vinyl fencing requires little ongoing upkeep, which makes those fence options appealing to many homeowners, but, wood fences offer the benefit of being more easily repaired than metal.
