3 Great Fencing Materials to Consider for Your Residential Property

by Jason Mason

The fence around your property has many key roles, such as creating a perimeter, offering security, and adding to the overall aesthetic value of your home. If you're in need of a replacement -- as your current fence has seen better days -- consider these fencing materials. 

1. Aluminum 

One of the most popular material choices for fences currently is aluminum. It's extremely easy to find and doesn't come with a premium price tag, even when you buy aluminum fence sections in bulk. You can thus renovate your property on a conservative budget, which would be rather difficult with a material like steel.

Aluminum fencing is also coveted because it's essentially maintenance-free. You don't have to worry about it rotting or rusting, especially when it features a protective coating. Aluminum also comes in so many different colors, which is great if you want to give your fence some added character.

2. Wood 

In terms of a traditional look, it's hard to match the aesthetics of natural wood. There are so many wood species to select from, all featuring a warmth that draws friends and guests in. Wood, even more so than siding, is extremely affordable.

The only thing you have to consider with this material choice is the extra maintenance you'll need to put in. You have to replace wood pickets and possibly sections over the years, so it's important to plan financially for these additional costs. Also, if you paint your wood fence, you'll have to re-paint it at some point in the future.

3. Vinyl 

Although vinyl is one of the more expensive materials you can go with, these extra costs are worth the durability it provides. Vinyl fencing will hold up in any weather element, and it doesn't take a lot of effort on your part to clean. You'll just need to apply some water from a hose to get rid of dirt every now and then.

Vinyl is also a material that has a distinct charm about it, featuring white tones that can really accentuate other exterior elements of your home. You'll find that vinyl fencing often comes in sections -- making it much easier to set up than other material choices. 

As you can see, there are some really great material choices for residential fences today. To select a material that works out long-term for you and you family, think about what you want to get out of your fencing material. Then, the choice will be clear. Contact a furniture store that offers residential fencing, such as Fontanna  Outdoors LLC, to explore your options to find the type of fencing material that fits your home and budget best.
