Types of Fences
There aren’t lots of decisions to decide on during the preparation process, but there are two important ones to first consider.
The two biggest options are whether you would like a privacy or a non-privacy fence and what fabrication components you want the fence constructed with.
Popular Fencing Styles:
Chain Link – normally one of the lowest priced choices. It is usually the quickest and simplest to put in. May offer a galvanized option. Galvanized options will come with a heavy zinc coating, so they won’t rust.
Ornamental Metal or Wrought Iron – a big assortment of styles, layouts and options including different styles of gates. Attractive but more expensive.
Wood Picket – old-fashioned and timeless. Frequently cedar. Not very weather resistant or easy to maintain.
Wood – classic charm and traditional style. Mixes well with the outdoors. Can be great for privacy cases. Needs periodic maintenance.
California Chain Link – a hybrid style using chain link fence, but having lumber posts and wood beams instead of the typical metal posts and beams.
Vinyl – affordable, maintenance free, durable and keeps its look and color for years. Comes in a range of textures and accessories. Terrific for privacy.
Steel – durable, built to last and dependable. Resistant to our weather. Plenty of design alternatives and various costs to select from. Can be ornamental too.
Aluminum – resistant to cracking, chipping and peeling, no maintenance.
Barbed Wire – common, very effective for security situations. Not so attractive.
Composite – similar to vinyl, but usually is a mix of synthetic PVC and recycled wood fibers built to resemble the appearance of timber. The finish is resistant to mold, chipping, cracking, rotting and peeling. Good for privacy.
Timber Split Rail – timber poles situated vertically and horizontally. No security or privacy. Has a country feel to it. Typically residential. Uses the lowest amount of material. An inexpensive option, particularly for big areas.
Coated Chain Link – chain link covered with a shiny, protecting vinyl coating. It’s maintenance free. Typically offered in colors including green and black.
Additional Security and Appearance Options
You can finish off your project with accessories including gates, decorative and security features.
Security extras start with gates. There are manual and electronic gates and access for both individuals and vehicles. Electronic gates also include decisions about the control mechanisms that will close and open those gates.
Many accessories are purely just for appearance.
A couple of the most widely used finishing touches are caps and finials. A finial is put on the top of a post to give it a better style. A cap is used in the same manner, but it also covers the top of a post, so it can protect the surface of the post from rain and snow.
If you have metal fencing, scrolls are commonly mounted on pickets or gates to add a little extra style.
Construction and Temporary Fencing in Ballard
Do you have to set up a safety fence just for a short period of time?
They can help organizations who are managing outside work projects or brief events. These individuals regularly want to have people or crowds controlled or assets protected.
They can plan, construct, keep up and take down a limited-use fence, gate and barrier solution.
Talk To a Local Ballard Fence Company
Building fencing isn’t the toughest work you will ever undertake, but it is not that easy either.
A trained work crew has learned from their previous jobs (and from previous problems). And they do this kind of work day after day.
Should I Do the Construction Myself?
Most homeowners who have never constructed one of these before should probably have an established crew complete the job. A small vegetable garden fence in the backyard may be manageable, but not a long one that must look straight and true.
And it will typically take a new builder considerably longer to get the job done. An experienced team can go fairly quick.
Maybe a homeowner is capable of doing an expert installation job; or maybe not. Years from now, you want to have a straight and level fence that looks great and looks like a professional installed it.
