Fence Types

Choosing a fence is sometimes like choosing a spouse. You are committing to looking at something at home every day for many, many years to come. That is why it is important that you understand your fencing options and select one that fits your needs.

Chain Link Fences

Chain Link Fences

Chain link fences are among the most economical fencing option on the market. Known for their durability and maintenance free wear, most homeowners don’t think of chain link fences as particularly attractive. However, with color infused mesh, differing post heights, decorative gates, and a variety of mesh sizes, chain link fences can be beautiful without breaking the bank. While they do not offer the level of privacy that wood or vinyl fences do, they can stand up to certain climbing vines offering opportunities for “living fences”.

wood fence

Wood Fences

Wood fences come in all shapes, sizes and materials. One of the most common fence types, wood fences, can be stained or painted for a variety of finishes. While these finishes will need to be renewed every one to two years, wood fences offer a level of versatility that metal finishes do not. Not only can you change the look of your fence periodically, they offer unparalleled privacy. HoCo specializes in pressure treated pine as it is the most durable and economical wood option. We also offer cedar when customers want a different look than their neighbors.

vinyl fence

Vinyl Fences

Do you want the privacy of a wood fence but the hassle free maintenance of a chain link fence? Look no further than vinyl fencing. Vinyl fences are increasingly popular around homes. Known for their durability, vinyl fences are now available in a variety of colors, panel styles and top finishes. At most, they need a good hose-off once a year to look like new. Vinyl fences are costlier than their wood and chain link counterparts, but have been known to last for more than 20 years.

ornamental fence

Ornamental Fences

Say the word ornamental fences and you may automatically think of, “beautiful, but not functional.” Think again. Ornamental fences come in a variety of shapes, colors, styles, and materials and can offer the same level of safety and security that any other fence type can. All the while, ornamental fences can add a beautiful touch to your home, garden, pool, or patio. Ranging from metal privacy fences to steel fencing panels to ornamental picket fences, these fences can be made from aluminum, steel or iron. Maintenance is minimal and, when properly cared for, ornamental fences can last up to 50 years.
