4 Best Materials to Choose From for Your New Fence


Are you having a hard time choosing the right fence for your home? With so many options available, you may not know where to start. The best way to pick a fence is to consider its purpose, style, and materials used. Read on to learn more about choosing a fence for your home.

1. Wood

Wood is a long-standing traditional fence used in American homes. A wooden fence is easy to install and even easier to repair. After all, if one part of the wood fence gets damaged, a professional can simply replace that individual stake. You can paint or stain wood to match the color of your home. Wood is also eco-friendly as it’s sustainable and recyclable after it’s no longer useful as a fence. Therefore, if your fence becomes broken and worn down over time, you may end up using it for wood chips, firewood, or art.

2. Vinyl

Are you worried about hungry insects on your property? If so, vinyl may be the perfect option. Vinyl is the material used for records and is strong enough to resist termites, carpet beetles, and other destructive insects. Therefore, it’s a durable fence material. It also takes paint very well, so it’s easy to customize. Your vinyl fence may also mimic the appearance of wood but can last even longer.

3. Chain Link

Are you worried about blocking sunlight? If so, a chain link is the perfect option, as you can build it very high, but it won’t block out sunlight. This type of fencing is ideal for setting a boundary, particularly for animals and kids. Make your chain link fencing even safer from thieves by adding barbed wire. According to Home Guide, these fences are low maintenance and last 15 to 20 years.

4. Aluminum

Aluminum is one of the strongest materials on the planet. When you have an aluminum fence, you have a fence that can last several decades. It may outlast you and later protect your heirs living on your property. An aluminum fence adds style and dignity to any property. This material is extremely durable and beautiful and can add value to your home. You won’t have to worry about damage from the elements. It can sustain high winds, rain, freezing snow, insects, etc.
