Fencing Materials, From Vinyl to Aluminum Fencing is at the crux of American homeownership. The vast majority of homes, young and old, rural and urban, utilize some type of fencing on the property. Fences serve a variety of purposes, from privacy to security to landscape appeal. And just as uses for fencing vary, so do the materials available for fence building. Wood, vinyl, aluminum, and iron fencing are all popular fencing materials. Each material has its own range of styles and grades.
Types of Fences When installing fences in ones yard, there are many types that one can choose from. Fences that are made from timber are by far, are arguably the most popular ones. These are quite cheap, versatile and come in different shapes and sizes. These are also preferred by some buyers because they are environment-friendly. However, timber can rot and some types of timber fences are no-good in terms of quality. Modern houses usually have brick or cement fences. Brick fences are popular because of their sturdiness and durability. The colors selection is also endless. These, however, are more expensive than timber fences. There are also steel fences which are lightweight and quite strong. Steel fences can, however, make irritating noise, especially if its windy or rainy. There are also stone fences and those which are made from natural materials such as bamboo, cane and reed.
Palisade Fencing- The people who are looking for strong barriers against thieves and vandals, the option of palisade fencing is worth choosing. It is costlier as it is constructed from hot and cold rolled steel sections. Such fences are having a few strong features that make it look relatively attractive. These features include its range of heights, finishes, colours and flexibility. It is impossible for a person to climb on these fences and most of the people ensure even higher security wherein they add triple pointed spikes to the top of each steel vertical rod and rather they use razor wire.
Selecting a Fence : If you are simply after a demarcation line for your property the cheapest starting point will be a simple wire fence mounted on natural stakes a couple of inches in diameter at 3m intervals with a line of wire strung between them. Farmers will often upgrade a demarcation line of this type with either a wire mesh stock fence (1m high) in place of the line wire, or for larger animals or more durable fencing will go for a timber post and rail system roughly chest high and with either 3, 4 or 5 rails depending on their livestock (when keeping sheep/swine, this type of fence will also have the stock mesh clad to the lower section of the post and rail for added containment). Choosing which style and type of fence you require will depend on your exact situation.
