Wooden fencing
Fences can be of various types, with respect to the material that they are made of, but let’s look at the best kind! There of course is the conventional wooden fence as we have grown used to seeing on shows centred on suburban life such as desperate housewives among others, but it definitely does not stop there. Considering all the wild things that took place on that show and its spin offs, they definitely did not know their fences!

Wooden fences give you the homely feel of a comfortable familial home life, but it comes at the obvious cost of the lack of durability of wood, especially in harsh weather conditions, and also has a high capital cost. Contrastingly, wrought iron fencing is relatively cheaper, but has a high maintenance cost, while vinyl fencing has a high down payment but little to none in maintenance.

Wrought Iron, Vinyl, bamboo, and PVC fencing
Wrought iron fencing provides a sort of luxurious touch to your home; it gives a lavish gated feel that is akin to several celebrity homes! Vinyl on the other hand is great if you’re looking for something that’s durable, but still has the homely feel of a wooden fence. These however are still relatively commonly known and used but the right fence installation contractor would know to introduce you and your home to something stylish, or utilitarian depending on what you are looking for.

If you’re looking for a unique look, bamboo fences have recently become a rapidly growing trend in the world of fences, and are a great alternative to the basic wooden fence. On the other hand PVC fencing is great for durability and functionality, and can easily be painted any colour you like.

So if you’re in the market for your dream suburban house, remember that you don’t have to stick to the common idea, but you can make your own. Fences that reflect your family’s quirks and vibe can be the difference between a good home and a great home with the help of the perfect fence installation contractor!
