So, what should you consider when choosing a fence?
There are many reasons a homeowner will be in the market for installing a fence. Do you need or want to provide privacy, keep your kids and pets in a safe area or is your end goal to increase your property value? Consider maintenance; how much time do you want to spend on maintenance? Wooden fencing requires the most maintenance due to the fact it will need painting and staining every couple of years to maintain its appearance. Aluminum or vinyl fencing requires little maintenance, which makes this option attractive to many homeowners. Don’t forget to check with your HOA if you reside in one. Some associations will put restrictions on styles and heights allowed in the neighborhood.
What purpose will it serve?
For most homeowners, there is a specific reason driving their decision to install a new fence. Are you looking to add Privacy, Security or improve you overall appearance?
