How to Choose the Perfect Fence

Learn how to choose the perfect fence for your home!

Everything that you do to your home has an impact on its resale value. That includes installing a fence to go around your property. Do your homework and put some thought into it so you will be sure to get a home fencing project that turns out to be a beautiful border and the perfect complement to your home.   


Choosing the perfect fence begins with understanding the reason you want a fence. Why do you need it? Is it to beautify your property, or to keep your children and pets safely inside its borders? Maybe you are considering putting up a fence so you have more privacy. Once you know what you want the fence to do, that will guide you toward the material and design that will work best.


Ornamental fences can add a lot of charm to your property, and that could mean higher property values. Aluminum, iron, steel, and vinyl fences are attractive borders, plus they can contain your kids and the family dog (if the dog can’t jump over it or dig under it). These materials are also virtually maintenance free. Wooden fences give a traditional, friendly look to your yard but they do require a little more maintenance. You will need to paint or stain them every few years.

Homeowner’s Association

Some areas have homeowner’s associations (HOA) that manage the roads, parks, playgrounds, etc. in a neighborhood. There are often rules about the type of fences that are acceptable and approved. Be sure to check with your HOA, so you are aware of any restrictions.


When you have chosen the type of fence you want, you will need a contractor to do the installation. Make sure that the company you choose is licensed and has done many fence projects similar to what you want. A reputable contractor will guide you through the process, including obtaining any necessary permits for the work.
