Whether you have money to burn or are on a tight budget, there are fencing materials that are just right for your home.
Perhaps the most commonly used fence material is wood. It is fairly inexpensive, although the cost will differ depending on the type of wood and the intricacy of the design, from a meek boundary fence to a delightful picket fence. But while easy to install, wood is not predominantly durable and will necessitate ongoing maintenance.
Strong, long-lasting and easy to maintain, steel is one of the most unyielding fence materials available. It can be used in solid panels, feature panels or palings and is perfect for the security conscious, since steel fences can be made lacking foot or hand holds, making climbing difficult. As a material for fences, steel is not suitable for pool areas or coastal homes since salt and chlorine may have a corrosive effect.
Glass fences are widely held for outdoor pool areas and balconies, where it’s imperative not to block the view. Completely frameless glass fencing is mounted onto a wall or entrenched in concrete for a totally transparent look, while semi-frameless types need posts. Because of the deficiency of privacy of glass fences, they are not usually used for boundary lines.
Composite fencing material is made out of plastics. The ‘sleeves’ and the fence paneling are made out of the composite material, which is slid over wooden posts that have been fixed into the ground. The composite materials are enormously expensive but very hard-wearing, and it’s often difficult to tell the difference between a real wooden fence and a composite fence.
Hollow vinyl fences can simulate the appearance of wooden pickets, wrought iron and other materials. Vinyl fencing is easy to set up and requires very slight maintenance, but it is costly. Also on hand is vinyl-coated wood fencing, where the vinyl has been applied by heat to the wood so there is no risk of it coming off.
