3 Fences That Can Enhance Your Home’s Privacy and Security

3 Fences That Can Enhance Your Home's Privacy and Security

Before installing a fence, it’s important to find the right fencing material that accommodates your needs based on fence privacy and fence security.

Deciding on a new fence installation for your property (or replacing an existing fence that is no longer up to the task) is a big decision, but one that, for many people, is the best one to make. Fences offer a range of benefits to the homeowner or tenant living on the property, including improving privacy and security and increasing curb appeal. However, not every fence or fencing material style will provide the same benefits. Before installing a fence, find the right one that accommodates your needs based on fence privacy and fence security. Continue reading to familiarize yourself with a few of the most popular fencing material options for your new fence installation. 


Wood is a popular fencing option because of its cost and durability. It is the traditional fencing material that most people picture in their heads, whether for a privacy fence in the back or a picket fence in the front. Wood fences come in a variety of styles and offer beautiful results. Wood is a great choice for a solid privacy fence since the materials are usually cheaper than other options and solid fences use many materials. Wood fences complement just about any landscape and are often available in different wood species to achieve different looks. 


Aluminum is also a popular choice since it is so lightweight, making it super easy to work with. Aluminum can achieve the same looks as wrought iron but at a lower cost. Aluminum stands up to the harsh weather without ever rusting (it can’t) or fading. Aluminum can also be used to construct privacy fences, but it is more often used for ornamental designs. 


Vinyl is the golden child of fencing. It is very strong and durable, it is virtually maintenance-free (unlike wood), and it is not ridiculously expensive. It often costs more than wood, but in the long run (once you factor in the cost of maintaining a wooden fence), they come out pretty even. Vinyl fences last a long time, and they can come in any style that wood does. While vinyl doesn’t need maintenance, you also can’t just paint it when you decide you want a different color.
