The most popular type of fence in America is the wood fence. Wooden fences are great because wood fences are available in many different designs. A solid wooden fence is ideal if your purpose for installing a fence is for privacy or perhaps a wooden shadowbox fence is more appealing to you because it adds to the security of your home while not blocking out your view completely. To protect a wooden fence from the elements, it will need to be regularly maintained as well so plan to repaint or retreat it every one to two years if you want to get the most out of the life of a wooden fence. Nortex Fence Co. specializes in wood fences and offers free estimates.
If privacy is the purpose of your fence then this is not the fence for you but if you looking for added security and trying to stay within a budget, chain link fences are worth considering since they are very durable fences and reasonably priced.
The traditional metal fencing material is the wrought iron fence. Wrought iron fences are just as sturdy as they are beautiful but they do require some maintenance. Wrought iron fences should be sanded and repainted every two to three years to keep it from rusting away. However, if you are considering a wrought iron fence, keep in mind that wrought iron fences tend to be pricey because wrought iron fences have to be custom made.
PVC fencing is one of the cheapest ways to fence in your property and is aesthetically pleasing as they provide a clean and finished look with very little future maintenance. These fences use PVC ras and pickets and usually come already assembled to be purchased as panels or sections of fencing. Wooden posts are still utilized as posts for this type of fence for added strength but PVC post sleeves are then used to go over the wooden posts to make the fence posts look uniform with the panels. PVC fencing is available in a variety of colors as well as different heights and widths and will continue to look new for years to come as the elements have little to no effect on PVC.
When it comes to any other type of fence, vinyl fencing has become the elite fencing material because it is maintenance-free, is resistant to almost any kind of stains, and continues to look brand new despite its age. Vinyl fencing has proven to have five times the strength and four times the flexibility of traditional wooden fences.
