A fence is a long-term investment that not only contributes greatly to the aesthetic value, but also to the security of your home. Due to the availability of different types of fences in the market today, choosing a suitable one can be a bit challenging. The following is a list of fences that you may want to consider for your property:

1. Wooden Fences

The types of wood commonly used for fencing include cedar, hemlock, redwood, and spruce. These woods are not only light in weight, but are also rot and insect resistant. Depending on where you are staying, you can settle for privacy or picket fences. Privacy fences comprise of long planks of wood placed side by side with no visible spaces between them. They play a major role in offering privacy as well as protection against strong wind.

Pickets are made up of numerous thin and pointed boards placed about 2 to 3 inches apart and connected together by two horizontal boards. They are very suitable for containing chickens and small pets.

2. Metal Fences

Metal Fences are available in different types including cast iron railing, chain links, expanded mesh, and welded mesh. Cast iron railings are very decorative and almost look similar to picket fences except that they have their posts held firmly in a concrete foundation, explaining why they are very durable. Chain links are made up of galvanised steel mesh, which supported by metal posts and are available in different impressive colours like black, grey, and brown. Expanded mesh and welded mesh fencing are available in a variety of patterns and designs to choose from.

3. Barbed Wire Fence

Barbed wire is one of the most popular and oldest fences being used by many homeowners today. Its sharp points allow it to keep away intruders or trespassers who may try to gain access to your property. The fence is also ideal for keeping away wild animals roaming outside the borders of your home or farm.

4. Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl fences are very cost-effective and come in a variety of styles, sizes, colours, and designs. Vinyl fencing is regarded as a good alternative to wooden and metal fences because it is weather-resistant, very easy to clean and maintain, and does not require staining or painting. In addition, it is strong and does not rot or warp easily, giving it the ability to last for a long period of time.
