Choosing the Right Style of Fence

Starting a fencing project requires more than just selecting a material and design. The first step is understanding why you’re installing a fence. Are you trying to enhance the curb appeal of your home? Maybe you’re just looking for security – a fence that would keep intruders out. Perhaps you have young children or pets that require a safe place to play. Your specific objectives will guide you toward the most suitable fence type.

Design Harmony

Once you’re clear on your objectives for installing a fence, consider the architectural style of your home. If your home has a modern look, you may want to choose ornamental metal, but if your home is more traditional, a wooden fence might be best to complement your home’s design.

Consider the Community

Before you get too far into planning, make sure to check with your HOA for any restrictions as to fences. If you’re not in an HOA, you should still look around the neighborhood to see what others have chosen for their yards.

Understanding Fencing Materials


Modern PVC fences

A popular and versatile option, our wood fences are crafted from renewable, durable western red cedar or pressure treated pine. While the cost of wood has gone up considerably as compared to pre-pandemic pricing, these fences are long-lasting, very durable, and are available in a number of different design options:

  • Solid Wood
  • Shadowbox/Board on Board
  • Spaced Picket
  • Solid Traditional


PVC or vinyl fencing is an increasingly popular choice for homeowners who want a durable yet low-maintenance option. These fences only require an occasional pressure washing to keep them looking like new.

Ornamental Metal Fencing

Metal fencing, particularly ornamental aluminum and steel, offers a perfect blend of aesthetics and functionality.
