Installing a fence around your yard can change the appearance to your home’s current surroundings, but the reason many homeowners install a fence is for privacy and security. Whether you recently installed a pool or you want a bit more seclusion, Pittsburgh Fence Company has something that’s right for your yard and your budget.
Nowadays, there is a large selection of fencing options to choose from and we have them all! This month, the experts at Pittsburgh Fence Company share their insight on the various fence types we install.
Wood. An ode to Americana and the white picket fence, a classic wood fence can offer privacy, security and a touch of warmth and coziness to your exterior. Wood designs are almost totally customizable unlike factory-made panel systems and are a fan favorite among homeowners with children and pets. The cost of the fence will vary on its design. The price of a wood fence while affordable, can quickly add up depending on the style of fence you choose and how big. They may also require some maintenance as wood can rot, however treated wood has come a long way and should be fairly resistant to change. If a wood fence is something you fancy, there are hundreds of designs out there. Let us help you build it!
Aluminum Chain Link
A traditional chain link fence is a wonderful option for children, pet owners and those looking to fence something in. Unlike panel and post styles, chain link fences are nearly see-through thus they don’t produce a secluded feel. If you own a pool, this is a great option as the fence will deter intruders, but will also provide a clear glimpse into the pool area. Chain link fences are affordable and easy to assemble, but if you’re looking for privacy you’ll want to think about other options like vinyl.
Vinyl, a type of PVC resin, is an attractive and affordable choice for your home. It’s also very strong, doesn’t need primed or painted and requires little to no maintenance. This man-made product is resistant to weathering and is easy to clean with soap and water. Unlike wood, synthetic vinyl is less likely to crack and discolor due to the sun’s UV rays
Ornamental and Decorative Fencing
If you’ve ever driven around and saw an ornate fence serving as the grand entrance to someone’s driveway, this type of fence is considered ornamental and decorative. Pre-assembled decorative aluminum fencing can truly enhance your home’s exterior or pool area while providing security. To prolong its integrity, aluminum fencing can be powder-coated to provide a chip-free, rust-resistant finish which should last for about 20 years without needing repainted. Ornamental fences can be found in an array of sizes and colors for all sorts of uses around your home.
