How To Choose The Right Fencing For Your Property

Fencing is not just about appearance, but functionality too. It sets the boundary to your home but also reflects the overall aesthetic of the property itself. Therefore, it’s important to consider a number of factors when looking at brand-new fence installations. With this in mind, we’ve put together a guide to help you make the best choice.

What Is The Fencing For?

First of all, you should think about what the fencing is being used for. Not only so you can make the most of it, but so that you don’t face any problems after installation. For example, if you value privacy, protection and boundary then you may opt for a taller, sturdier and more hardwearing fence to keep your pets and children contained and prying eyes out.

Alternatively, if you just want a nice fence to complement a newly landscaped garden then you may opt for a more stylish, delicate design such as a picket fence. Whichever you choose is entirely up to you but it’s important to assess before moving on to the next step.

Which Material Suits Your Home?

There are a variety of different fencing materials to choose from. Among the most popular are:

  • Timber
  • Composite
  • Metal
  • Vinyl

Each has its own benefits and suits a different style. Timber is affordable, warm and matches a rustic aesthetic, whereas metal is more industrial, resilient and long-lasting. The material you choose will be based on your assessment discussed above. We recommend a metal fence if security is your priority, or timber for a more decorative effect.

Think About Fencing Maintenance

With our busy modern lives, it’s essential to consider the maintenance aspect of a brand-new fencing installation. If you’re looking for a fence that won’t need much looking after, then you may want to consider metal panels. They last for an extremely long time and don’t require anything other than the occasional wash. Timber on the other hand, although is more decorative and pleasing to the eye, may require staining every so often. Either option is valid and should be assessed based on your priorities and the property itself.

Stay Within Regulations & Consider Your Neighbours

Lastly, before you dive into a brand new fencing installation, consider the local regulations and your neighbours. There is a height limit on fences that will need to be considered if you’re building a tall fence for privacy. Additionally, a fence can often be shared and defines a property line. Always discuss fencing matters with your neighbour before commencing work. You could even save some cost if they’re willing to chip into the renovation.
