As we have seen there are limitless designs and combination of material to help create fences protecting your interests that bear the stamp of your ideas and customization.
The fencing barrier is an emphatic announcement of property limits to neighbours and strangers alike—mitigating trespasses by humans and animals. The protection it affords families especially with little children and pets is invaluable. Aesthetic choices become unavoidable once the decision to construct a fence is made, unless budget restrictions come into play. Dictating boundary-limits to the outsider-fences not only act as barriers from security perspective, but they also inoculate the residents from untoward prying guarding their privacy, and blocking unpleasant sights and noise, especially for those seeking solitude in convivial neighbourhoods. Public properties, hazardous industrial belts, government agencies, and security sensitive zones are some of the most prominent places mandated with fencing requirements.
Livestock fencing is a necessity on huge farms to keep predatory animals from preying on domesticated animals and cattle with barbed-wire fences that usually present themselves as the easy to install, economical and highly effective option. Some farms also make use of smooth-wires that are very durable and can be electrified although requiring regular maintenance. Chain-Link fences are popular for their budget friendliness along with easy installation for large areas, involving smaller animals, requiring very little maintenance. Other variations consists of mesh wires, poultry netting, hog wire, steel, metal, and electric fences figure among the most prominent choices of material for fences to protect livestock.
It’s often a combination of face-brick and concrete walls that encircle perimeters across many residential properties. Concrete fences are functionally sturdier and are able to withstand harsh climatic conditions with steel reinforcements usually take on the role of the inner layer of the fence leaving the veneering to brick fencing with the aesthetic advantage. Brick fencing assimilates better when landscaping happens to be a major consideration in the project. Metal fencing has always been a durable option projecting strength combined with an array of designs to match architectural statements. Traditionally, wrought iron has been the metal of choice which now competes with steel, and aluminium as the leading metal fencing material. Other than aluminium fencing both steel and wrought iron are susceptible to corrosion and would need period maintenance.
Wood for the obvious reason of possessing the aesthetic advantage is almost a luxury when pursued in its natural hard variety such as teak, cedar, and redwood; lower budget projects are better catered to by pressure treated wood which tend to warp and have low tolerance to rotting and decay. Picket fencing, Trellis combined with plants, and Split-rail fencing in particular appear very ornate despite their simple designs are prime examples of the allure wooden fencing holds. Vinyl fencing does not last as long as natural hard wood and is one of the low budget and easy to install variety that serves as a good alternative to pressure treated wooden boards used in fencing. Composite fencing is better equipped, with its plastic and wood-fibre combination, to withstand decay and the usual deterioration suffered by vinyl and soft-wood and therefore it is priced higher for its better durability.
