There a few different varieties of fencing you can decide on for your home or property.
The two main decisions are privacy and materials. You need to decide between a fence that offers visual privacy and one that doesn’t provide privacy. The next decision is picking out the materials to use in the construction.
Common Construction Picks
Chain Link – often one of the cheapest choices. It is usually the quickest and easiest to install. May come with a galvanized option. Galvanized options feature a no-rust, zinc coating.
Wood Picket – old-fashioned and classic. Frequently cedar. Not weather resistant or maintenance free.
PVC Coated Chain Link – chain link covered by a glossy, protecting vinyl coat. It’s maintenance free. Often available in colors such as brown and green.
California Chain Link – a mix of two styles using chain link fencing, but having wood posts and timber beams as opposed to the regular steel posts and beams.
Composite – similar to vinyl, but often is a blend of PVC vinyl and reclaimed wood fibers made to match the appearance of wood and timber. It is resistant against water, chipping, cracking, rotting and peeling. Great for privacy.
Wood or Timber – classic charm and traditional looks. Blends well with the outdoors. Can be terrific for privacy cases. Needs periodic maintenance.
Aluminum – resistant to chipping, cracking and peeling, no maintenance.
Steel – tough, built to last and reliable. Resistant to bad weather. Lots of layout choices and various grades to choose from. Can be ornamental too.
Ornamental Steel, Iron or Aluminum – a large variety of colors, layouts and options including gates. Attractive but more expensive.
Vinyl – affordable, low maintenance, durable and retains its look and color for years. Comes in a range of textures and accessories. Terrific for privacy.
Wood Split Rail – wood poles placed horizontally and vertically. No privacy or security. Has a ranch feel to it. Generally residential. Uses the lowest amount of material. An affordable option, especially for large areas.
Gates and Controls
Most property owners will include some options with their project. The typical add-ons involve protection and accessibility, with features like gates.
Some extras fall in the security area. There are plenty of gates to choose from. Some gates lock. The gates which lock could be operated from a number of different digital entry systems, or maybe they just open and shut by hand.
You will also find options which do nothing but help how your fence looks when it’s done.
Two of the most widely used accents are finials and caps. A finial is coupled to the top of a post to give it a more finished look. A cap is connected in the same way, but it also covers the top of the post, so it can protect the top of the post from moisture.
If you have metal fencing, scrolls can be connected to gates or sections to add some extra bling.
Temporary Construction Fences in Federal Way WA
Do you want security fencing for only a short time period?

Federal Way Fence Installation
It’s usually to your advantage to have an experienced local contractor repair or replace your fencing.
A professional builder who has a record of completing a number of projects has learned all about the trickiest parts of the building process which could mess up a less-experienced builder.
Do I Need to Have a Professional Build It?
If you want to attempt to build a small backyard fence by yourself, you can probably finish the job. It may not look totally perfect, and it might take quite some time to complete, but it will be okay. However a long fence, or one which will be highly noticeable, that is generally best left to a more experienced staff.
Like most other things in life, there is a learning curve for this process. A novice installer is going to need much more time to complete this project than a pro would require.
The bottom line is this – you don’t want your new fencing to look like it was constructed by someone who was not very good at it. You want it to be straight and level and look really nice.
