Installing a fence is an investment that will offer many things in return, including privacy, security and beauty. If you are in the planning process or tossing around the idea of putting a fence on your property, there are some things to consider beforehand that will help you along in your decision-making strategy. It is best to be thinking about these things before you look at options for materials to ease the process.
Here are questions to consider:
Why do I need a fence? This query is at the root of what material will be best for your project. Different materials have different benefits and perks. If you want a fence for security, an aluminum option will work just fine, and this would also help keep pets in their place. If privacy is part of what you want from a fence, the vinyl offers the ability to keep your yard more enclosed. Wrought iron-fencing can offer the style that you seek if you are wanting something with more pizzazz.
How much maintenance do I want down the road? This is a very important question to consider, as it really impacts your home upkeep long-term. Wood fences are classic and look great, but they will need updates in the future. They will need to be painted or stained on a regular basis and can wear down from weather elements. If you are fine with this type of maintenance plan, then wood can be for you. Vinyl is seen as an option that is easier to keep looking great year after year with cleanings.
Have I considered the impact on my neighbors? If you are looking to install a tall fence that will affect the view of those around you, make sure that you have a discussion with them so that they understand your expected and hoped-for outcome. If you want more privacy for a pool or hot tub, you will want a vinyl option that offers a blocked view, and this should be conveyed to your neighbors. Listen to their input and have a discussion that will lead to a choice that you both can live with in the future.
