How a Privacy Fence is a Win-Win

If you don’t have a fenced-in backyard, there’s a good chance you’ve thought about putting one in. What is it you’re looking to get out of a fence? Whether you want one to help establish property lines, keep your pets and kids safe, are looking to sell soon, or just enjoy the privacy from one, a fence is a great option. If you said yes to any of those reasons, here is why a privacy fence is a right choice for you.

Types of Privacy Fences

Iron Fences

Iron fencing may not have as much privacy as vinyl or a wooden fence, but it has enough to give you some nice coverage. Plus, when taken care of, an iron fence can last a homeowner around 60 years, which will be sufficient for most. However, this option is not the cheapest compared to vinyl and wood. If you want a low maintenance fence and do not have that much yard to cover, this may be a good selection for you.

Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fences are another great low to no maintenance fence. Since they have non-porous surfaces — which makes them easy to clean — you do not need to worry about dirt and water damaging the materials. Vinyl fences, like iron fences, can also last decades, making them a sound investment for any homeowner. But, this also makes them a more expensive option than wood. Depending on your project, you may benefit from this long term investment. 

Wooden Fences

The everlasting winner of privacy fences has been wooden fences, which have a lot of upsides. They are easy to install, repair, and maintain and come in different styles and options. On the contrary, wood fences can rot and warp easily due to moisture. A wood fence will need maintenance more often if there’s more humidity present in the area — so be prepared if where you live is highly affected by these factors.
