When homeowners want to improve their properties, they want additions that will increase value and enhance the appearance of their homes. Good residential fences, for instance, can add privacy and beauty to a residence or they can detract from its exterior design.
A residential fence on or around private property can serve many functions such as marking the property boundaries, protecting children and pets or designating a certain area for a particular purpose. Almost everyone wants fencing around a garden containing prize roses, for instance, and a fence around the pool is a requirement.
Popular Types of Fence Material
Three main types of fencing for residential use are vinyl, wood and aluminum. Although other choices are available, these three are the usual selections. Wood is often a popular choice, particularly cedar and pressure-treated southern yellow pine. Many people are drawn to the look of wood and it does indeed make very attractive fences when properly maintained. Of course, wood fences require periodic painting or staining but many people find that a small inconvenience when considering the eye-catching charm of wood.
The white picket fence around one’s own property was part of the American dream for many decades. It is best used as a backdrop for flowers, vines or ornamental bushes. It gives a property a country feel and is still chosen by many homeowners. However, vinyl fencing has recently become very popular. It is strong and flexible, usually includes a lifetime warranty and never needs painting.
Some manufacturers claim a vinyl fence is the last fence anyone will ever need to buy because of its strength and durability. The color is all the way through the material so scrapes and scratches do not show. The initial cost of vinyl is higher than wood but offers long term savings in reduced maintenance and repair.
