Types of Fences in Lincoln
While some local fencing companies serving Lincoln and surrounding communities specialize in a specific type of fence, we have the expertise to meet all of your fencing needs. The type of fence that is installed on your property will impact the specific benefits that it provides to you. Each of our clients has unique needs in mind when they plan for the installation of a new fence, and we are available to help you decide which fence type and material is ideal for your residential or commercial needs.
Chain Link Fence
One of the most basic yet durable types of fences in a chain link fence. Typically, this type of fence is made out of galvanized steel. The height of the fence as well as the dimensions of the mesh vary, and these factors directly impact the benefits that the fence can provide to you. For example, a dog run in your back yard may need to be a few feet tall if you have a tiny dog, or it may need to extend overhead if you have a large breed dog. If your chain link fence is used to secure a property, such as is common with commercial properties, the fence should be tall enough that it cannot easily be scaled. Because a chain link fence allows full visibility, it is not ideal for privacy.
A traditional privacy fence in Lincoln is comprised of wood slats. The wood is usually pre-treated, or it may be sealed or stained after installation in order to protect it against pest and weather-related damage. There are many decorative options for privacy wood fences. For example, lattice work can adorn the top of the fence. The fence may be capped with trim, and the posts may be carved or capped.
Vinyl fence in Lincoln is an increasingly popular alternative to wood on residential properties, and it is well-suited for a wide range of styles. The vinyl panels are typically pre-fabricated and can easily be installed in panels. These panels may block the view completely and provide superior privacy, or they have larger or smaller spaces between the slats. As is the case with a privacy fence, vinyl fencing may have decorative trim pieces, caps on the posts and other unique elements. Vinyl fencing is also available in a wide range of sizes, so it is suitable for everything from a decorative picket fence to a tall perimeter fence. Typically, vinyl fences are white, but they are also available in other colors. One of the appealing features of vinyl fences is easy maintenance. They do not require staining or sealing like wood. Instead, they simply need to be hosed down or scrubbed periodically.
A picket fence may be installed around the perimeter of a front yard to create charming curb appeal. It is also frequently used as a decorative perimeter to keep children or pets out of flower gardens or vegetable gardens. This type of fence typically does not provide privacy or security, but it creates an essential border. While picket fences are commonly associated with residential properties, their aesthetic appeal and their ability to manage the flow of traffic may make them beneficial on some commercial properties as well.
These are the most common types of fences that are found on residential and commercial properties throughout Lincoln and beyond. However, other types are also available and may be suitable for your needs. We are committed to helping each customer maximize the benefits of a new fence, and an important aspect of achieving this goal involves assisting with the selection of the right fence type.
