Does your home have a fence? Maybe it does but it is very old, or maybe you are thinking of installing one. Bloomington roofing contractor Snap Construction will review different types of fences.
Whether the situation, learning about different fence materials is helpful. Read ahead to get details about metal, wood, chain-link and vinyl fencing.
Metal fencing will be the most expensive type of fence available. Wrought iron is more expensive than aluminum. This option is a traditional look and doesn’t require much maintenance. Most HOA approve of metal fences. A con of metal fencing is that it is difficult to replace small sections.
Chain-link fences are the cheapest option. They average around $13 per foot. This type of fence is durable and typically has a warranty on it. A con for chain-link fences is that they provide zero privacy and HOA do not typically allow this type of fence.
Vinyl fences are becoming more and more popular. This type of material has relatively low maintenance and is approved by many HOAs. However, like metal fencing, it is harder to replace small sections because of material and style.
Wood fences are a classic style. It is becoming more popular to install pressure-treated pine wood. The wood absorbs chemicals to help prevent decay. Pros of this? Easy to repair. It might even be a weekend project if you’re willing to tackle it! Staining can be done by you also. This type of fence will require more maintenance.
The cheapest option is a chain-link fence, then wood, vinyl and lastly metals. Deciding on what fence works for you is personal preference and also depends on HOA (if applicable).
