Privacy fences are a common investment for home and business owners alike, but they can be incredibly unique and take countless forms. Wood and vinyl options are popular, but metal privacy fences are also gaining popularity. These barriers combine the affordability and security of chain-link fences with the privacy of an opaque wall, and property owners have many options available when it comes to installing them. If you’re interested in a metal privacy fence, read this blog and contact Hercules Fence!
What Does a Metal Privacy Fence Look Like?
While you’ve probably seen a vinyl or wood privacy fence before, metal privacy fences aren’t quite as ubiquitous. Imagine a chain-link fence with vertical slats slid into the links. This is what a metal privacy fence looks like. Fence owners often customize their barriers with different colors for the slats and chain-link fence itself. While they typically don’t block 100% of sight from the outside, they offer a significant obstruction for nosy neighbors and passersby.
Consider Aesthetics and Budget
As with any fence, you’ll have to give some serious thought to what you want your new fence to be. Clients can customize their new fence’s height, layout, color, and more, and with a chain-link base, these fences are typically quite affordable. The three main expenses for property owners to consider are materials, labor, and future maintenance expenses. Because chain-link fences are often cheap to install and maintain, many property owners see them as an affordable solution for their privacy and security concerns.
Don’t Forget a Gate!
Your perimeter is only as secure as its most vulnerable point, and any secure perimeter must have a continuous line of fencing or other physical protection. Adding a gate to your metal privacy fence can help you ensure a continuous barrier while providing convenience and entry. For some properties, a small gate is sufficient. For others, a large automated gate is required. No matter what your property’s needs are, the fence installation experts at Hercules Fence of Richmond are standing by to help!
