Consider Your Needs


While all fences tend to serve the same general purpose – contain your yard and keep unwanted visitors out – you have additional needs for a fence. Knowing what fence is best equipped to perform the desired job is the first step to selecting the right fence for your yard. There are several reasons our customers seek a fence, including:


  • Security
  • Aesthetics
  • Privacy
  • Containment


  1. Chain-Link Fencing


Popular among pet owners, chain-link fencing may not be the most aesthetically pleasing or private fence option, but it is highly durable and secure. For those looking for an effective way to contain pets or young children while securing your yard, chain-link fencing is the route to go. These fences offer a long, low-maintenance lifespan and are one of the most affordable choices.


  1. Aluminum Fencing


Like chain-link, aluminum fencing is durable and long-lasting, but it is also visually appealing. Aluminum fencing comes in various types and colors, and is a great option for the humid Midwest summers, and can withstand the bitter, unpredictable Chicagoland winters. If you have large dogs or energetic children, this might not be the best option, as aluminum fencing often cannot withstand jumping and climbing pressure.

Wood fences are one of the best options for homeowners looking for both security and privacy. While most picture the traditional white picket fence or privacy fence, there are actually quite a few options when choosing wood fences. From height to stain to wood type, wooden fences offer various styles that you often don’t see with other fence materials. Wood fences require more ongoing maintenance than other fences. However, the added benefits of wood often outweigh the extra care they often require.

Vinyl is a great alternative to the traditional wooden fence. As a weather-resistant and durable fence material, vinyl fencing has seen a surge in popularity in recent years.
