Fence installation is a lucrative investment, as it adds curb appeal and value to the property. The average fence is four to eight feet tall, but you can have a fence customized to fit your needs. An expert fencing contractor will give you a cost estimate based on the style, size, and height that you choose. You can choose from a variety of designs and styles including chain link, vinyl, a wood picket fence, aluminum, and farm or ranch style. Here are three tips when choosing the right fence for your yard.
1. Decide the Primary Function for Your Fence Whether you’re getting a fence for the first time or to replace an older one, it will add privacy to your home. A wood fence about six to eight feet tall is great to keep children safe. It also keeps pets, plants, and gardens contained.
If privacy isn’t a huge issue, it is recommended to have the chain link, vinyl, or picket fence installed. For an increase in design and protection, try the picket fence. Keep in mind of any plants or flowers that grow on the side of the fence because some flowers grow in between chain link fences.
2. Measure the Size in Feet You can work with your fencing contractor to measure the linear feet for your fencing project. An expert will get the right measurements in order to have enough building materials for your front or backyard.
We have a great tool on our website that lets you get a quote based on the linear feet of your project.
3. Consider the Cost of Fence Installation The cost of installing a fence varies depending on the size
and style you want. There are also maintenance costs to take into consideration. For example, a wood fence requires painting or staining every so often. A professional will explain the different prices based on the style, height, and the linear feet you need.
