We all value privacy. Picture yourself in your backyard celebrating a loved one’s birthday. You definitely need some privacy in your backyard. No doubt! So, to help achieve that, we’ll tell you about the 6 best types of privacy fences.
We, humans, have used wood for several purposes for a long time. And one of the favorite uses of wood is for building fences. Wood fences can be built with different styles to satisfy different ends. For instance, you can choose from semi-private picket fences to full privacy fences.
Today, we’ll tell you what makes wood privacy fences unique.
First of all, wood is beautiful. It took years and divine touch to achieve the design of wood grains and patterns. So, by adding a wood privacy fence, no other house in the world will have a fence that looks like yours because wood grains and patterns are non-repeatable.
Besides adding to the curb appeal of your home, wood fences do the remarkable job of keeping your yard protected from prying eyes.
The biggest drawback of this type of privacy fence is that it requires regular cleaning, staining, and replacement of wood panels to keep it looking appealing.
And only when properly maintained, wood fences can last 20 years.
Insects are the nemesis of wood. But termites don’t eat plastic or vinyl. So, you’ll not have to worry about insect damage.
Although fake “vinyl” fences will never look as wonderful, pleasing, and classic as a wood privacy fence, they still do a good job mimicking wood.
Aluminum and vinyl are one of the best fence materials ever used. In fact, it was hard to define a winner when we compared Aluminum vs Vinyl Fences.
Since both materials went toe-to-toe in showing off their benefits, just imagine how awesome it is to combine both and create the ultimate privacy fence.
These types of barriers enjoy the sturdiness of aluminum posts and rails with the privacy and beauty of vinyl panels in the middle. Basically, you will get the best of both worlds.
Speaking of having the best of both worlds, you can never go wrong with composite privacy fences. These panels are made from a mixture of real wood with plastic. So, the wood will create a natural charm and look, while the plastic resins will make it weather, insect, mold & rot-resistant.
As a result, composite fences will last more than 30 years without showing wear and tear. This is longer than wood, because only when properly maintained, wood fences reach a 20-year lifespan.
Second to the last in our list, we have corrugated metal fences. These fences are made of a metal sheet that has been molded with ridges and grooves.
One of the best things about using this type of fence is that it’s affordable regarding the cost of material, labor & maintenance costs.
The only thing is that this type of fence is more utilitarian. Meaning that it fulfills a practical purpose which is adding security and privacy to your backyard rather than being an appealing fencing option.
