Choosing a Fence
Selecting the type of fence to use in your design can be daunting, as even though there are only a few types of fence usage, there is seemingly an endless selection of materials, styles, designs, colors, sizes and other options to choose from.
Fear not, we will assist you in choosing the right fence for your application. With our extensive experience and sense of design, we can walk you through the options and best practices, as well as make suggestions as to what works best in your particular situation.
Wee keep in mind the pricing and quality of the options when making suggestions, and will be happy to offer a variety of proposals for you to consider. With all that in mind, see the major types of fencing available below:
Choices for decorative fencing include white picket, post and rail, and wrought iron.
White picket are typically used for low perimeter definition and aesthetic appeal.
Post and rail fences are generally used in farm settings for livestock separation such as horses and cattle.
Wrought Iron fences can also provide security, depending on the style and height.
Chain-link fence is the first one people think of when they want security, but wrought iron fences can also fill that role.
Chain link fence comes in several heights, from 4 to 10 feet, and light, medium and heavy gauges for strength.
For added security, chain link can be reinforced, as well as topped by barbed or razor wire.
Wrought iron, while visibly more appealing than chain link, can provide almost as much security, depending on size, spacing and toppings (think of sharp spikes!)
Privacy fences are available in several styles and colors.
Wooden privacy fences are lower in cost, come in shadowbox, stockade, and board-on-board styles. They can be pressure-treated or cedar, painted, stained or left to weather naturally. Some maintenance is required.
Vinyl or PVC fences come in multiple color choices, textures and styles, which include shadowbox, vertical batten, and divided rail.
Some South Florida communities restrict which privacy fence styles can be used due to hurricane-centric building codes.
Your family's safety is our top priority when it involves swimming pools.
If you have anyone who might accidentally get into your swimming pool and is not a strong swimmer, you should seriously consider a swimming pool security fence.
We have several types of fencing systems, some of which are removable for ease of access, but reinstall quickly when the swimming is done. All our systems have locking gates that resist small children's attempts to open them.
