How to Pick Out the Right Fence Style

How to Pick Out the Right Fence Style

The proper fence style can increase your property value, create excellent curb appeal, and give you and your family a real sense of privacy.

If you are looking for a way to enhance the appeal of your house, adding a fence is an excellent place to start. The proper fence style can increase your property value, create excellent curb appeal, and give you and your family a real sense of privacy. But before you go all out with your post hole digger, there are a few things you have to consider. Here is a detailed guide on the many different kinds of fences, and how to pick the right fence style for your home!

Before Picking Your Fence Style

Depending on where it is you live, there might be rules you have to abide by to comply with your homeowner’s association fully. Look into restrictions on materials, height, and whether you have to maintain visibility through the fence. Make sure to check with your local homeowner’s association, or your neighbors before choosing your desired fence material. Give them a head’s up before you begin constructing your fence as well. Don’t forget to check with your city regarding whether or not you need a permit to begin construction on your fence. Usually, your fencing company, like Eastern Shore Porch and Patio, will take care of this. Once you have everything straightened out, it is time to install a fence around your property with your desired fence style!

Vinyl Fence Styles

Both inexpensive and requiring little maintenance, vinyl fence styles work very well. If you don’t want the look of metal fencing, then this is your best bet. Individual fencing panels can be installed closely to improve the degree of privacy. This makes the vinyl fence your ideal option for low maintenance privacy and security because outsiders can’t see through those panels easily. After installation, the only care for this fence style is periodic cleaning to remove off any debris and dirt. This can be done with a power washer or a wet sponge and garden hose. Vinyl fencing never needs to be repainted, and most brands are U.V. protected. They won’t rot, bend, or come apart. This makes vinyl an ideal option for those who want to close off a pool area while still wanting to see out. The vinyl fence style choice is one of the best.

Metal Fence Styles

Ornamental metal fencing, typically made of aluminum or galvanized steel, offers a stylish look that is also very low maintenance. It comes in several fence styles that makes it suitable for all kinds of homes, from contemporary to traditional. It can also be painted in any kind of color you wish.
