What Type of Fence Is Right For Me?


How do you determine what type of fence to get for your home?

Fences come in all shapes and sizes, and serve a variety of functions, not to mention provide extra appeal to your home. But with so many different fences from which to choose, how can you figure out what fence is right for you? As it turns out, there are a few key factors that can influence your decision when trying to find the perfect fence.


The first factor you’ll want to consider is the purpose your fence serves for your home. You’re getting it for a reason, so knowing what that reason is will help greatly in figuring out what style is right for you. Even finite details are important. For example, say you own a dog, and you don’t want the dog to leave the yard. How tall or narrow does your fencing need to be? Is the dog a jumper? Perhaps you’re a pool owner, and you need a fence for pool safety purposes. There are certain ones that meet the “pool code” that you can review. Or maybe you’re looking for a little seclusion, so you would want to look into options pertaining to privacy fences. No matter what need you have for your new fence, rest assured there will be one that suits your needs.

What’s In The Vicinity?

It is not uncommon to be living near other people, and perhaps your neighbors have fences of their own. If that’s the case, try looking into fences that complement the ones around you. Or maybe you wish to stand out from the crowd, and go for a completely different look! Wherever you’re living, taking others’ homes into consideration is a good rule-of-thumb when making sure that your fence is appropriate for where you are. You may even be living in a neighborhood with a homeowners association, which can restrict what type of fences you’re allowed to have.

Architectural Style

One other thing to think about when picking a fence is to consider the house itself. Depending on the style of house, or even its color, your choice could change. A Victorian may be best complemented by a regal aluminum fence, while a ranch-style home may have more appeal coupled with a custom-made wooden fence. If you find yourself having trouble deciding, a salesperson can help you decide what style will be the best fit for your home and your needs.
