Make sure you are making an informed decision when preparing to purchase new fencing for your yard! Remember to consider the needs of your yard, family and lifestyle before you pick a fencing style and material. You have many options to choose from and some of options are better for specific purposes.
Think About What You Want the Fence for
Fences are commonly installed for privacy, visual appeal, or for the safety of pets and children. Sometimes, a fence might be installed as part of a home’s landscaping features, which can increase property values. Think about why you might need a fence and let that guide your decision making. Make sure to prioritize what you need over what you want. You may want a delicate, decorative fence but you may need a more substantial fence to block nosy neighbors or keep your dog inside your yard.
Think About the Maintenance Required
When considering what materials your fence will be made of, ask yourself how much time you want to spend maintaining your fence. Wood fences requires the most maintenance, with deep cleaning and painting or staining requires every three to five years. But wood fences are considered to be the most aesthetically pleasing, which can boost your property’s value.
Vinyl and aluminum fencing requires significantly less maintenance, but can be difficult to repair. Wood fences are easily repaired – if a storm damages a few boards, they are easily replaced and will eventually weather to the same color as the original fence. Vinyl and aluminum fencing repair is less simple – if you need to replace a section after many years, you may find the fence manufacturer no longer exists or sells the product. This can make it hard to find fencing sections that match what you already have in your yard.
