A good fence serves your property more than just a complement to its design. Your fence of choice also provides security and privacy to you and your entire household. This important element of your property should be installed professionally for it to truly give the true feel of home.

There are any types of fencing to consider. Below are some of them:

• PVC. This is the most inexpensive fencing that effectively replaces pickets and wooden stakes. Once wooden posts are erected, the PVC sleeves are placed on top of them. They add stability, since they are attached with screws and adhesives. You can choose from myriad colors and heights. PVC fencing can last for years because it is resistant to harsh elements.

• Wood. Wood fencing is one of the most popular in the United States. It provides privacy, especially when the fencing is tall. That warm, homey feeling greets the homeowners and their visitors, the moment they see the wood fencing. Take note that although wood fencing is not that expensive, the size, the kind of wood used, and the height of the fence will affect the total price. Also consider the time needed to install it. A large wooden fence would take a longer time to install and would be costlier than a small one.

• Aluminum. Aluminum fencing may not provide a lot of security, but it is an attractive fence to have around your home. Once you install and paint it, you don’t need to maintain it anymore. This is a good fence, but it is not ideal for homes in areas frequented by extreme weather.

• Wrought Iron. Wrought iron fencing usually has designs at the top. Because of this, they bring beauty and strength to your property. You just need to maintain it through sanding and repainting every two or three years. Wrought iron fencing are expensive as well because it is custom made.

Other types of fencing, such as bamboo, vinyl, electric, farm, and chain link fencing are also available. For the best type of fencing for your home, call Dewalt and Sons. They will guide you in the selection and installation of your preferred fencing.
