Fencing: A Great Way to Dress Up Your Property

We’ve all driven down the street and seen a house that looks like something out of a magazine.  For many homeowners, having a dream house is out of the question.  There’s nothing wrong with that.  Your home is your biggest investment.  You can still have a beautiful home on a modest budget.  But guess what, there are many ways to make your modest home look like a dream home.   Fencing is one of the easiest ways to transform your property into that house that everyone is jealous of.  And no, I’m not talking chain link here.

There are several styles of fencing available that can drastically improve the visual appeal of your property.  Wooden, Vinyl, Stone, and Ornamental are all fencing types that will accomplish this.  And you don’t have to break your budget to do it.  There are many fence companies that can install beautiful fencing that looks like it costs a million dollars, but in reality might cost less than a thousand.

Wooden fencing, an extremely popular choice for rural and urban settings is a great option.  There is a limitless amount of styles when it comes to wooden fences.  From simple pickets to intricately designed custom wood fencing, there is certainly a style that will match your budget and preferences.  Also, with wooden fencing, you can choose exactly what type of wood you want and what shade of stain.  You can also paint a wooden fence any color your heart desires.  The installation process for wooden fencing is somewhat time consuming as each individual post and slat needs to be installed by hand.  You can buy wooden fencing in 12 foot sections and this can help cut back on the installation time.

Vinyl fence is possibly the most maintenance free fencing in the fencing world.  All that is needed to maintain vinyl fencing is the occasional spraying with a hose (and brush if necessary).  Vinyl fencing also will outlast any other type of fencing in this article.  Vinyl fencing comes in many styles and colors so you can find just the right fence to complement your property.  Installation of vinyl fencing is generally quick as it comes in 8-12 foot sections.  The only difficult part is installing the posts, but that comes with any type of fence.  Vinyl fencing also comes in a wide range of prices.  Call  your local fence company for some samples of the vinyl fencing they provide.

Stone fencing and ornamental fencing are for those homeowners that really want to spend a fair amount of money.  These are the least budget conscious options available in the fencing world.  However, the end results can be breath taking.  These fences are built from large stones and sections of concrete.  The labor needed to install these fences is intensive as these large pieces of stone can weigh several hundred, if not thousands, of pounds.  Once again check with your local fence company to see your options.

In summary, a new fence can be a great way to improve your home’s curb appeal.  There is also the added benefit of keeping all of your pets from running away…and perhaps your small children.  There are hundreds of options when it comes to selecting what type of fence you would like installed, so take your time and pick something that you love.  Good luck!
