Is a fence a fence? Actually a fence is really a fence no matter what its made of, but there are certainly advantages and disadvantages of one type over the other. The choice is yours. Please do your own research and find out for yourself which one would be best for you and your family. A good way to find information on a particular fence your interested in is to present your questions to someone who owns that type. Ask about maintenance and cost, along with what they like or dislike about their choice and experience.
Block Fence A true block fence 6″ or 8″ is a good choice and solves almost all of the reasons for a fence. Although you better get your pocket book out because a well built block fence is going to cost you big time and if you dont do it right then dont bother, it will not last. Block fences have a reputation of being poorly constructed unless you pay the big bucks to have it done right. Not convinced? Go try and shake the top section of a cheap block wall installed by a track home builder, I bet youll find a couple of loose blocks there at the top just waiting to pop out.
System cost For some of you budget for a system will play a role. All the systems listed below are time tested with maybe the exception of the DogTek which is new to the U.S. But you do get what you pay for. The lower cost systems will work well in the right environments and with the right pets but I would encourage to you buy the best system you can afford. The extra features could save you both time and money. For example, the cost of replacing batteries could become substantial over time. Also, expanding your system will only be possible if you purchase a system that allows compatibility. Features like a low battery indicator or battery backup could prove to be invaluable in the long run.
