Fences and Walls to Enhance Your Home

April 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 206

Every homeowner has considered adding an elegant fence to their property. However, choosing a fence that will enhance your home while still containing your pets and keeping your children safe may seem like a daunting task. But don't worry; it is extremely possible to find a fence that is not only functional but also fashionable and affordable. The first step is to decide which type of fencing material is best for your needs. Below we have covered the most common material used in modular walls and fence panel walls along with the benefits and problems of each.

Timber Modular Walls and Fencing

What comes to most people's minds when thinking of conventional fencing is timber or wooden fences. If you are looking for one of the most affordable materials used in fencing, then treated timber can be an excellent choice. It won't rot and is resistant to most pests and insects.

There is also a very diverse selection of colours and styles available. You may prefer the more traditional looking picket style or perhaps you are leaning more towards the newer modular wall panels, which can be painted or textured any way you desire. Unlike more modern materials however, timber fencing will require a higher level or maintenance.

Vinyl Fencing

You may think you have never seen a vinyl fence before, but you have probably seen plenty. At first glance a vinyl fence looks just like a regular timber fence. So why buy vinyl? Because unlike wood, it never needs to be painted, stained, or retreated. Of course, vinyl fence panels cost more than wooden fences to install, but with its longer lifespan and low cost of maintenance it will pay for itself before long.

Fences Made From Bricks

Another type of fence that is commonly seen is the brick wall. This fence material has reclaimed popularity among homeowners and is often complimented with pillars, wrought iron or stone features. Unfortunately installing a brick wall completely around your property is not only extremely expensive, but also rather limited on colour choices.

Aluminium Fence Panels

Another common modular wall material is aluminium. This lightweight material is durable and easy to install, not to mention that it will slow the progression of brush fires. There are wide arrays of fence panel wall designs and you can even select a style that is solid enough to have the added benefit of privacy. With so many colours and styles available you can choose one that compliments your home or complies with zoning or city restrictions.

Nature's Fences

Probably one of the cheapest fence materials is a live one! If you aren't in a hurry, you can grow a hedge fence that will trace your property line. Be sure to select an evergreen plant the will grow to about medium height. This will act not only as a privacy screen, but can also be used as a wind or sound break. Of course, depending on the shrub or hedge you select, it will need a higher level of care and maintenance that a metal, vinyl, or brick modular walls would require.
