Types Of Fencing
There are multiple options when looking at what type of fence to install. Each has its own purpose. Here are the two main types.
Privacy — The purpose of a privacy fence is to conceal your property from the general public. This way you will have some privacy from neighbors and other people going through the area. Of course, they can also add to the appearance of your property. Typically, for a fence to be called a privacy fence it will be around five feet high. These fences are usually made from wood or vinyl.
Decorative — The purpose of a decorative fence is to add to or enhance the look of your property. After all, your fence may very well be the first thing people notice about your property. These fences can also be made from wood or vinyl, but there are also other options when you are mainly going for a great looking fence.
At Spring Falls Landscaping, we use two materials to build fences — vinyl and cedar. Continue reading for more information about each of them.
Vinyl — Vinyl is a plastic-based material that is used for all types of fencing. It is made from chlorine and ethylene to make polyvinyl chloride. You probably know this as PVC. It is one of the most commonly used materials in construction and fencing. This material is a good choice for a fence for several reasons. Vinyl is strong. It is also flexible. This is great quality for your fence to have in eastern Idaho with the strong winds and other weather conditions your fence is going to face. Another great thing about using vinyl is that it is easy for you to clean. You just need to wipe it down with some soap and water. Forget about using paint or stain! Vinyl can come in a variety of colors. It also will not rot or become infested with bugs.
Cedar — This is another popular choice for a fence. It is quite durable and will be tough enough to take on the extreme weather it is likely to face in the Idaho Falls area. Cedar will last longer than most other types of wood fences. It is also more resistant to those pesky insects than other types of wood. Cedar is also one of the best looking types of fence and you won’t have to worry about using sealant because of the natural oils that are in the wood. Another benefit of cedar is that it tends to maintain ist shape better than other types of wood so it should not suffer from warping or shrinking over time. This is a great option because with how long cedar will last, you’ll save money in the long run and it is very low-maintenance for wood material.
