What Type of Fence Should I Choose?

  • Wood: Wood is an old standby that will provide you with a rustic appearance in your yard. Also, despite how aesthetically-pleasing it is, the materials are not expensive. However, homeowners should understand that owning a wood fence requires to maintain it. Wood rots sustain water damage, and insects chew and eat it. We recommend cedar because it will deter insects from the natural oils found in the wood. 
  • Ornamental: Ornamental fences include aluminum, steel, and wrought-iron. Let’s begin with iron. While it is attractive and dramatically increases home value, it is out of the price range of many homeowners. Aluminum and steel are cheaper. Of the two, aluminum is the most affordable. However, those who order an ornamental fence can rely on several benefits, including cost, weight, attractiveness, and resistance to rust. 
  • Chain Link: The most significant draw of a chain-link fence is affordability. For homeowners on a budget, there’s nothing more affordable than chain link. Given how low-maintenance it is, there will be little long-term cost tacked onto the initial price. However, chain link fences do not amplify your home’s value. They offer little aesthetic purpose, instead of providing a basic level of protection and property division. However, individuals who need to keep children and pets contained within their yards will love chain link fences. 
  • PVC: PVC and vinyl fencing offers several attractive benefits for a reasonable price. They are not as affordable as chain-link fences, but our fence builders can install them at a low cost. Most importantly, they beautify your property and provide you with more privacy than some other fencing options can. You can clean it using a hose and minimal scrubbing. Individuals should understand that repair costs for broken planks of PVC are higher than those of other materials

How Long Do Fences Last? When Should I Replace Mine?

We sell and install fences designed to maximize their lifespan. But how long they last will depend on the materials used to construct them. Wood fences, with maintenance, will last between 10 to 15 years. PVC, vinyl, and chain-link fences last a little longer – approximately 20 years. Ornamental aluminum and iron fences can last a lifetime. Deciding when to replace a fence can be tricky. However, these seven signs should make you reach out to our specialists:  

  • Holes: Wood and PVC fence are prone to gaps. In wood’s case, these holes occur as insects and mice take bites out of your fence. The first thing you should do is hire an exterminator to get rid of the pests. Then contact Paramount Fence. 
  • Splintered Wood: While you might think splinters are a small cosmetic problem, they are notThis problem indicates deeper structural issues that can lead to collapse or leaning. Why? Splinters point to cracking, which turns into a much bigger problem. 
  • It Leans: Fences should stand upright! No matter what kind of fence you own, it should not veer onto your neighbor’s property. A leaning fence is a sign of a failing one. Replace it before it topples over and endangers a person, pet, or nearby foliage. 
  • Rotting Wood: If you own a wood fence, you must engage in regular sealing and other maintenance tasks. It’s the only way to avoid water damage. However, all good things come to an end eventually. The same goes for a wood fence. If what was once a beautiful, gleaming part of the neighborhood is now sad and drab, it’s time to replace it. 
  • Repairs: You shouldn’t have to call Paramount Fence to repair your fence each year. Fences should stand at attention and provide little-to-no headaches to homeowners. How many beautiful summer days a year do you spend fixing your vinyl, PVC, or wood fence? If the answer is several, then the time has come to replace it.
