How to Select the Right Backyard Fence

Consider different fence materials when designing your backyard fence.

Many homeowners opt to install a backyard fence. These home additions can be excellent tools for providing safety for playful kids and clear boundaries for boisterous pets. But how can you determine which fence style and material are best for your home? To do so, we recommend reviewing the most popular fencing materials available and weighing the benefits of each. 

Wood Backyard Fence

Wood is a popular fence option for homeowners because of variable height and privacy options. This style also lends the most natural and rustic look to your fence while being affordable. You can customize a wood fence by selecting the type of wood, staining or painting the wood, and selecting different heights and styles. However, wood is susceptible to harsh weather and requires regular maintenance to prevent warping or rotting. 

A Chain Link Fence

Many homeowners may decide against chain link because of its appearance. However, chain link is very affordable and requires little maintenance. You can customize this fence with its height, colored coating, and privacy slats. While chain link fences cannot provide the privacy that others fences do, they are useful if you want to keep an eye on potential activities outside of the fence. 

PVC/Vinyl Fence

Like wood, vinyl is a popular material for backyard fences. It functions similarly, although it requires less maintenance from the owner. There is a wide variety of customization available regarding different sizes and colors. PVC vinyl fencing is great for homes that have relatively consistent weather and which require basic safety services. 

Steel Ornamental Fences

A steel fence is an excellent choice for homeowners who want a product strong and durable. Steel provides the most long-term value, although it creates less visual privacy. Instead, homeowners get to enjoy the timeless look of a wrought iron fence. Your fence needs to be adequately coated, but when it is, it can last a long time. 

Aluminum Ornamental Fence 

Aluminum fences are currently a more economical option for a backyard fence rather than steel. Aluminum is not as strong as steel, but it provides similar rust-free, non-fading, low-maintenance quality. While steel and aluminum fences are more expensive than wood or vinyl fences, homeowners save money in the long run on maintenance costs. Aluminum fences can withstand water and wet environments well, which makes them great for backyards with pools.
