What type of security fencing is right for you?

The right security fence doesn’t just keep things out of your yard, it also keeps important things in your yard. When you are browsing for the right fence for your yard, it can be overwhelming to sort through the many different materials, security add-ons, and decorations available. Here are our favorite ways to choose the right fence for keeping the right things in and the right things out.

Why Are You Purchasing a Fence?

The right fence should be designed to meet your reason for getting a fence in the first place. The most common reasons for homeowners to purchase a fence are:

  • Privacy: very common in yards with pools or people who spend a lot of time entertaining outside
  • Pets: to keep other wild animals out and your pets in
  • Kids: to protect your children and prevent them from wandering away during playtime
  • Wild animals: if you live in an area with a high wild animal population, fences can deter them from entering your yard
  • Beauty: fences are a great way to add curb appeal to a yard

What Type of Fencing Meets Your Needs?

Some types of fencing are high-maintenance and require frequently cleaning and debridement. Other types of fencing are known for being low-maintenance and durable. The right fence for your home should combine aesthetics with function to meet your maintenance needs. Common types of fencing materials include:

  • Wood: well-loved and traditional, but needs extra maintenance
  • Chain link: not the most aesthetically pleasing type of fencing, but very effective and affordable when you need a high volume of fencing
  • Wrought iron: this elegant fencing option is great for high security fences
  • Brick or stone: these materials are often the right fence for people who live in the country that want an aesthetic complement to their home more than a functional fence
  • Vinyl: vinyl is incredibly durable, cost-effective, and is available in a wide variety of colors
