Types of Fencing


There are several different types of fencing available to accomodate your home. Many reasons for fencing include security, curb-appeal, privacy, garden, pool, among many other uses. Price, height, scope, layout, and installation for each type of fencing varies. Here is a list of common types of fencing for the home.

  • Wood & Picket - Pressure treated wood to withstand the effects of weather. Wooden and picket fences are usually 4-6 feet tall and provide great privacy and noise-blocking benefits
  • Vinyl - Typically comes in white color but other options might be available. Vinyl fences will range in high from 2-6 feet. The posts are spread a few inches apart unlike the seamless connecting of wooden pickets. Vinyl can be a better option than wood if you live in an area that undergoes serious weather changes. Vinyl is typically used around pools as well
  • Metal - Very expensive but looks classy and sophisticated. Metal fencing can come in wrought-iron or aluminum materials. Metal can also be used around pool enclosures
  • Chain-link - Great option if you have pets and would like to keep them enclosed without worrying about them eating or chewing away at the fence material. Chain-link is also used for many garden and utility fencing purposes

Just about any type of fence will provide value to your home if installed and placed properly. Fencing contractors can help you decide upon the best type of fence for your situation and will also be able to provide free quotes on the available fencing options for your home.
