Styles of Fences
You have several options when it comes to planning your new fence.
The two biggest options are whether you want a privacy or a non-privacy fence and which construction materials you want the fence built with.
Common Construction Styles
Chain Link – generally the cheapest option. It can be the quickest and easiest to install. May have a galvanized option. Galvanized chain link will come with a heavy zinc coating, so no corrosion or rusting.
Vinyl or PVC Coated Chain Link – chain link covered with a shiny, protective vinyl coat. It’s maintenance free. Often available in colors including black, brown and green.
California Chain Link – a hybrid style using chain link fence, but having wood posts and wood beams instead of the standard steel posts and beams.
Barbed Wire and Barbed Tape – very effective for security situations.
Aluminum – resistant to chipping, cracking and peeling, no maintenance.
Steel – durable/built to last and secure/strong. Resistant to weather damage. Plenty of design choices and different grades/costs to choose from. Can be ornamental.
Ornamental Iron, Aluminum or Steel – a big range of style designs, colors, and options including different styles of gates. Great-looking but more expensive.
Vinyl – affordable, easy to maintain/maintenance free, durable/weather resistant and maintains its look/shape/color for years. Comes in a range of styles/textures/colors and accessories. Good for privacy.
Composite – similar to vinyl, but usually is a blend of synthetic PVC vinyl and recycled wood fiber materials designed to resemble the look of timber and wood. The finish is resistant to mold, cracking, chipping, peeling and rotting. Good for privacy.
Wood Picket – traditional and classic. Not weatherproof or maintenance free.
Wood or Timber – classic warmth and traditional style. Blends well with nature and the outdoors. Can be good for privacy situations. Not weatherproof or maintenance free.
Split Rail – traditional, timber poles positioned horizontally and vertically. No privacy or security. Has a rustic, rural feel to it. Typically residential. An affordable option, especially for large areas.
Options and Choices and Add-Ons
Security options include manual or automatic pedestrian walk-through gates for home or business use; pedestrian turnstiles and other entry access systems for business use; driveway gates or entrance way vehicle gates that either swing or slide; and the gate operators that provide controls to open and close these gates (card readers, coded keypads, radio controls or simply manual operation).
There are appearance details you can add to your fence too.
There are finials and caps which sit on the top of your fence posts. Finials are generally just a decorative element. Caps help provide a finished look too, but they can also help protect your post from the weather.
Scrolls are a decorative element that can be added to the top or middle of fence sections or gates of see-through fences.
Temporary Security Fences
If you just need a temporary fence, you can get that done quickly too.
Construction work sites and other types of outdoor projects often need a protective security fence for just a set amount of time.
A good fence contractor can install an effective temporary fence to protect whatever it is you want to be protected.
Generally, a temporary fence will not be a good-looking fence. It’s purpose is to protect whatever is inside it or to keep bystanders or neighbors from getting into the location and potentially being harmed. Some temporary fencing may incorporate nylon or other light weight choices.

Should I Do It Myself?
Let’s be honest – novices and beginners make mistakes.
