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.
Wood Fencing There are three main types of wood fencing: privacy, picket, and rail fences. Conventional types of wood used include cedar, pine, redwood, cypress, and more. The availability of each will depend on the region. • Privacy fences serve to provide the homeowner with seclusion and an intimate setting in the back or front yard. Usually six to eight feel tall, privacy fences are common in both urban and suburban environments. • Picket fences, led by the white picket fence, are a truly American tradition. They are shorter than a privacy fence (3-4 feet tall) and are not intended to allow privacy so much as an enclosed yard and a colonial style. Styles of picket fencing include arched, scalloped, gothic, French gothic, dog-eared, and standard flat-top. • Rail fences are prevalent in rural areas such as farms and ranches, where animal containment is necessary. Rail fences consist of round, square, board, or split rails attached to posts. They allow an uninterrupted view of the landscape. Often, a mesh wire is combined with rail fence framing to keep smaller animals in or out.
What You Should Know About Fencing Your Yard Whenever one looks at houses while driving down the subdivision, fences are rarely eye-catching. Fences are usually a component of the whole backdrop of a house, and perhaps this is the main essence of a fence. The beauty of a house is made to stand out through the use of fences and it should not be the other way around. Fences accentuate the natural splendor of ones home, and properly choosing and installing fences are key ingredients towards attaining that specific goal. There are many reasons why people would want to put fences on their yard or reinstall new ones. For those houses which never had fences, the owners may want to have some sense of privacy and security, even though in reality, fences dont really provide security and privacy. Nonetheless, fences concretize the boundaries of ones properties. This is a very important thing that fences provide. Other people would want to install fences so that their pets and small children would not go out of their yards.
Another type of fencing that is made of metal and that is gaining in popularity is aluminum fencing. This is a more cost effect option. Aluminum fencing can be purchased off the shelf and does not have to be created for one job. This is a lovely option for those who cannot afford wrought iron. You can find this in many different fence styles. You do not have to worry about aluminum fencing rusting. The look of the fence will not fade either. Maintenance is not required with the exception to a quick wash with the hose. This can be done when you notice the fence is dirty. It is a common misnomer that a metal fence will not have the same type of seclusion as can be found with other types of fencing. You can get seclusion fences that are made out of both of these examples. Keep in mind that the cost of these fences will be a little more than the standard fence. To add to the privacy, you can add bushes or plants that will keep prying eyes out without being too obtrusive and will still look nice. This is a great way to utilize bushes and trees. You can have decorative metal fencing that will add a nice touch to the outside of your house.
