Choosing the Right Fence Style and Material for Your Needs

Fences play an important role in our outdoor spaces, providing security, privacy, and aesthetic appeal. But with so many options available, it can be overwhelming to select the right fence style and material for your needs. In this blog post, we will explore some of the major types of fences and highlight the aspects of each fence. This will help you to make an informed choice when buying a fence for your property.

Fences are typically made from the following materials: steel, aluminum, wood, wood plastic and wire. Each material has its unique properties, durability, and price points.

Steel Fences

Steel fences are known for their durability and strength. They are derived from traditional wrought iron fences, which were popular in the 1700s and 1800s. Today, modern steel fences are made in a large variety of designs, and offer a more affordable solution than wrought iron fences. Ornamental fences like TruView and UpGrade are great examples of steel fences that offers both security and aesthetics.

Aluminium Fences

Aluminium fences provide a lightweight alternative to steel fences. They are highly resistant to rust, making them ideal for coastal areas where salty air can corrode steel fencing. For customers preferring this metal fence option, we offer our popular TruView garden fence in an aluminium version: TruView-Alu.

Wooden Fences

Wood fences have a timeless and classic appearance, evoking a sense of warmth and charm. White picket fences and split-rail fences are common examples of wooden fencing styles. While wooden fences offer a simple and rustic look, they require regular maintenance to sustain their look and protect against the elements.

Wood Composite Fences

A more modern fence type, wood composite fences offer a sustainable fence choice as they are typically made from recycled materials. Privacy fences are typical examples of an eco-friendly wood composite fence. Unlike wooden fences, wood composite fences are very low maintenance as they don’t need regular painting or staining.

Welded Wire Fences

Welded wire fences, like our Prism 3-D steel fence, offers an attractive and low maintenance alternative to chain link fences. The great advantage of these type of fences are their diversity – they can serve various purposes, from yard fences to commercial property fences.

Choosing the right fence style and material involves considering factors such as the purpose of the fence, desired aesthetics, maintenance requirements, and budget.
