4 Things to Consider When Installing a New Residential Fence

residential fence

There are a few things you should consider when researching, planning, and installing your new residential fence.

As we delve into spring and summer, people are spending more time outdoors. Whether it is to watch the kids play outside or throw a big backyard party, homeowners often take stock of the appearance of their yards this time of year. When you assess your property, do you feel that something is missing? If that something is a fence, there are a few things to think about before choosing and installing one. Here are four things you should consider when researching, planning, and installing your new residential fence.

  1. Purpose

Think about what purpose your new fence should serve. Is your primary focus privacy and protection? If so, an opaque fencing material like vinyl or wood might be appropriate. If your goal is to keep pets or children contained, you may want to avoid some ornamental fences that can be dug under or jumped over. A purely decorative fence can be made of a variety of materials including steel, aluminum, and wood.

  1. Cost

Although it can be tempting to try to build your own fence to reduce expenses, constructing a new fence isn’t a feasible DIY project for most. Some materials might look great but be cost prohibitive. On the other hand, the cheapest materials may not perform the function you require adequately. It is essential to start with a budget and see which materials best fit your project without breaking the bank.

  1. Aesthetic

Although many commercial fences are purely utilitarian, residential fences are something that homeowners must look at every day and can impact the value of a home. Think about what type of fence would look best with the exterior of your home while still fitting the rest of your criteria. Your new fence should not be an eyesore. Some homeowners even choose to enhance their fences with plants!

  1. Maintenance

How much time and effort are you willing to put into maintaining your new residential fence? If you would rather install a fence and just leave it be, a vinyl fence might be the best choice. Vinyl fences are not as likely to be damaged as wooden, chain-link, and wrought metal fences are over time, and they do not require much cleaning. If you are willing to put in time and money into maintaining your fence, those materials may be the most suitable option.
