Do you have pets? Or, do you have young children? Perhaps you have a grouchy neighbor? If you said yes to any of these, then having a fence installed on your property is probably a good idea. Not only will the fence keep your loved ones inside and safe, but it will help keep unwanted guests out! There are also legitimate real estate advantages to bolstering your property’s appearance with a fence; like increasing your property value and elevating the home’s curb appeal. If you decide to sell your home, think about having an attractive and highly functional fence installed to up your chances of selling! But which fence is right for you? Here a few of our most common fencing options:
● Wood fences – White picket fences are the quintessential, American dream-property ornament. These beautiful fences are made of…you guessed it, wood! Not only does wood give a charming and unique look to your property, it is also a very durable material, which you will be able to enjoy for years to come. There are, however, many other types of wood fencing available and depending on the quality of the wood and how you maintain it, wooden fences can last up to 20+ years! Or until your little ones graduate!
● Composite Material – Composite materials are highly durable and maintenance-free with the added benefit of looking just like beautiful, natural timber! Composite fencing is more attractive and less expensive for the cost of materials. Also, it adds little-to-no additional costs down the road due to the lack of maintenance required!
● Ornamental Steel & Wrought Iron – As far as longevity goes, steel and iron fences are where the buck stops. These materials are the strongest, but the most costly fence materials. However, they create a very solid property boundary, and add a more timeless look to your property. Where chain link fences simply won’t cut it, get a sturdy steel or iron fence. Apart from simple rust maintenance, these fences are the most durable, as well as the crown jewel of our operation.
● Fence Maintenance Tip – Most fences will need some form of maintenance, periodically. Usually, a fairly light upkeep is required to retain your fences original luster. That being said, wood fences require the most attention, while composite fencing requires very little maintenance. Choose your fence material based on your specific needs.
