Determine What Type of Fencing is Right
There’s not many decisions to make in the designing process, but there are two substantial ones to consider first.
Your first big choice will determine whether or not you need your new fencing to offer privacy. After you decide upon that, you’ll be able to go forward to pick which construction materials to use.
Popular Types of Fences
Chain Link – normally one of the most cost effective choices. It may be the quickest and simplest to construct. May offer a galvanized option. Galvanized products come with a zinc coating, so no rust.
Vinyl – affordable, easy to maintain, durable and keeps its shape and color for years. Comes in a variety of textures and accessories. Good for privacy.
Aluminum – resistant to chipping, cracking and peeling, no maintenance.
Wood – classic charm and traditional looks. Mixes well with nature. Can be good for privacy situations. Needs periodic maintenance.
PVC Coated Chain Link – chain link covered with a glossy, protective vinyl coat. It’s maintenance free. Regularly available in colors such as green and brown.
Timber Split Rail – timber poles installed vertically and horizontally. No privacy or security. Has a rural feel to it. Generally residential. Uses the smallest amount of material. An affordable choice, particularly for big areas.
California Chain Link – a hybrid style using chain link fencing, but having wooden posts and wood beams instead of the conventional metal posts and beams.
Metal – tough, long lasting and secure. Resistant to bad weather. A lot of layout choices and different costs to pick from. Can be ornamental.
Ornamental Iron, Aluminum or Steel – a large variety of colors, designs and options including different styles of gates. Attractive but higher priced.
Barbed Wire and Barbed Tape – common, very effective for security situations. Not very attractive.
Composite – similar to vinyl, but usually is a mix of PVC vinyl and recycled wood fibers designed to resemble the appearance of wood and timber. The finished product is resistant against mold, chipping, cracking, and rotting. Perfect for privacy.
Wood Picket – traditional and timeless. Often cedar. Not weatherproof or easy to maintain.
Options and Details
A property owner will usually add a few extras to the project to achieve some extra safety or to make it look a little better.
Some of the security options include pedestrian gates and access; driveway or automobile gates; and hand-operated or electronic controls to open, shut and secure those gates.
Besides security, most accessories are solely for adornment, and to make the fencing look better.
Two of the most common extras are finials and caps. A finial is attached to the top of a post to give it a more finished appearance. A cap is connected in a similar manner, but it also covers the top of a post, so it will protect the top of the post from moisture.
Metal fences sometime have additional matching metal scrolls mounted on some sections or gates to provide a little more decoration.
