There are lots of reasons that you might be thinking about fences right now. Perhaps you live in an urban area, up close to your neighbors, and you’d like a little more privacy on your property. Perhaps you have a fence that is damaged, old, or otherwise doesn’t serve the needs of your family and lifestyle and needs to be replaced. Or perhaps you don’t have a fence at all and you want the security provided by one. Whatever the situation you find yourself in, there is a privacy fence to suit your needs. You just have to figure out what works best for you and your family.
Is Privacy Your Goal?
If a big part of getting a new fence is privacy, then you need to choose a privacy fence. This will be a tall (often 6-8 feet tall), solid or mostly solid fence. These fences are hard to jump or climb over, keeping your pets and kids safely in and strangers safely out. They are also the best way to keep prying eyes from watching what goes on in your yard. Finally, solid fencing can also help limit the ambient noise from the surrounding neighborhood, making your yard a more enjoyable place to relax and unwind.
What Materials Do You Like?
Material is likely the biggest choice you’re going to have to make, and the one most homeowners get hung up on. Wood is a traditional and popular choice for privacy fencing. Part of this is that it often has the lowest upfront cost. People also often like that you can easily paint or stain wood fences to achieve exactly your desired look. The flip side of that is that you actually have to paint or stain wood fences to protect them, and this work has to be done every year or two. Wood is also subject to damage from insects, rot, and can cause dangers if it breaks or splinters, but it is one of the better materials for blocking out outside noise such as traffic. Wood is also a renewable resource. Another popular choice is vinyl. While more expensive upfront, vinyl doesn’t require the maintenance of wood and still makes a great choice for privacy fencing. Vinyl fencing comes in panels that also make it very easy to install.
