Fence Types: What Are My Options?
You look at your yard and you notice that your old fence is in need of replacement. However, you’re not entirely sure which direction to go in. You could install another, standard fence that simply gets the job done without creating any significant curb appeal. Or you could install something a little more decorative that catches the attention of passerby’s. If you’re new to fencing, just know that there are different options than just a stereotypical picket fence.
There are plenty of different styles and ways you can go about constructing your fence, so why not know the different fence types so you can choose the one that best suits you? There isn’t a wide range in the different fence types that we sell, but you can certainly add your own creative spin on its design to create something that is unique. Here are the 4 different fence types we offer:
Privacy Fences – When it comes to homeowners choosing a fence, these are the norm and standard. People love privacy fences as a means of creating some peace and quiet in the midst of their hectic schedules. With that being said, these types of fences can be a bit more, “plain Jane”. Simple modifications to the install can lead to a more intriguing fence. We’ve seen a few customers place their panels on a slant or horizontally and the finished look is incredible. You’ll still be able to maintain privacy while having a better looking fence.
Split Rail Fences – These fences have blown up in popularity over the past few years. Split Rail fences fit perfectly under a rustic, organic, and outdoor theme which is perfect for Colorado homeowners. Their simplicity of design and install, with a minimalistic look, this style of fence is highly effective at creating a quainter vibe and giving your property some character. Customers also have the option of choosing 2 or 3 rails, so you’ll have some creative control with that aspect.
Post and Dowel – With a similar design to split rails, these fence types will create a more unified and consistent look as their rounded posts and rails don’t look as rustic or weathered as split rails. Post and Dowel fences are chemically and pressure treated, which gives the wood the greenish hue that Post and Dowel fences are known for. If you’re looking for a rustic and outdoor style, that has a cleaner more unified look than split rails, then Post and Dowel fences are perfect!
Ranch Rail Fences – Similar to split rails, Ranch Rail fences are perfect for rustic and outdoor themes. These fence types are commonly seen on ranches or large, open farms, but their application can be seen in metro areas as well. The big difference between Ranch and Split rails is that Ranch Rails will provide you so many more design possibilities. Split rails have pre-drilled holes in the post creating a big limitation on creative design.
