Three Alternatives To Wood Privacy Fences That Will Look Great Around Your Home

Construction & Contractors Blog

Privacy fences can be a great addition to your home, and provide many benefits. Other than privacy, fences can also provide sound barriers and security for your home. One of the most popular materials to use for this is wood, but there are other materials that you can use for your privacy fence that look just has good. If you want to have a new privacy fence added to your home and are looking for a wood alternative, here are three fencing systems that you may want to consider for your new fence:

1. Vinyl And PVC Systems That Resemble Wood Fencing

One of the newest materials available for fencing is vinyl or PVC fencing. These systems can come on many different fence styles, which can even match wood fencing. Vinyl fencing is a great solution if you want to have a fence that is durable and requires little maintenance. It can also be much more affordable than masonry and other materials.

2. Metal Fencing Panels As Sound Barriers

If you live in a populated area, or near a busy street, metal fence panels can be a great fencing solution. Many of these are designed to buffer sound, which is why you often see them on the boarder of highways or expressways. These can also be installed, and then the interior of them finished with a different material such as vinyl, which will give you two layers of sound barrier to reduce noise pollution around your home.

3. Fences Created With Exterior Veneer To Match Your Home

There are also exterior veneers that can be used as fencing. These will require some type of wood or masonry structure for the veneer to be attached to, which makes this a costly solution. If you want to have some of the fencing for your home to match veneer finishes on your home, this is a great choice. To reduce costs, this can be done for just the front of your home, and then you can use a vinyl fencing product for the rest of the fence around your home.

You may not want to use wood for your privacy fence, but that does not mean you cannot have a fence that looks just as good. If you want to have a new fence installed around your home, contact a vinyl fence contractor like Lishman Fence and ask them about the products they have to offer.
