Top Things To Consider When Choosing A Fencing Material

Are you tired of neighborhood children and animals traipsing through your yard? Are you currently considering installing a fence to help keep your flowerbeds from being trampled? When trying to decide on a fencing material, it can be difficult to choose which one to install. Here are the attributes of different choices, to help you decide: 

Wooden fencing: People have probably been installing wooden fences for as long as the idea of fencing has been around. Wooden fencing can range from being a short picket fence, with very little privacy, to being a privacy fence that is taller than you are. Wooden fences can prevent people from seeing into your yard and partially dull some sounds. However, depending on your area, they may need to be painted yearly in order to help delay rotting and deter termites. If you have a large yard, installation may take several days since each fencing plank needs to be installed separately.

Chain link fencing: Unlike wooden fencing, you don't have to worry about chain link fencing rotting away. It's also, obviously, immune to termite damage. Chain link fencing is also relatively quick to install. Large yards may be able to be fenced in over the course of a weekend. While this type of fence will do little to block out sounds, privacy slats in a variety of colors can easily be installed to prevent nosy people from seeing through your fence. For more complete visual privacy, you can even attach reed or bamboo fencing to the interior side of your chain link fencing. Unlike other types of fence, there are fencing companies who will rent temporary chain link fencing. If you're not sure whether chain link is right for you or if you just want a quick fence to keep people out of your yard after it's been damaged by a storm, this may be a good option for you. 

Block fencing: Block fencing offers almost total privacy. In return, it is one of the more difficult and time-consuming types of fences to install. Each block must be installed individually and you may need to take breaks to wait for the mortar in between each row to dry. If your land is sloped at all, care must be taken when installing the fence so that it is installed straight and doesn't collapse. As a result, a properly installed block fence could take a week or more, depending on how large the fenced in area is.

Vinyl fencing: Most vinyl fencing options strongly resemble locally available wooden fence options. Unlike wood, it will never rot or get eaten by termites. also unlike wood, vinyl fencing is often installed in panels and not individual planks. This may mean that you have very little choice as to what your final fence actually looks like. Although not required to preserve this type of fence, painting is an option if your main objection is the colors that are available.
