If you are in the St. Louis area, there are many options when it comes to fences for your home (and fence contractors). No wonder, given the many different styles of homes in the area. But how do you choose what will add the most beauty and value to your home? In truth, there’s no better source than a reputable St. Louis fence company.
Here at Maintenance Free Outdoor solutions, we’ve been hiring and training industry experts for over a decade. Here are some of the things our experts tell homeowners who are planning a new fence:
Every home is different, and everyone home should have a fence to match. Here are some ideas of what to look for:
If a yard fence to you means a white picket fence, then the traditional look in vinyl might be for you. Colonial or older style homes tend to look best with this traditional look.
Vinyl fences that are made to look like painted wood fences are a great option for this look. They also have the benefit of being maintenance-free and pest-free.
Homes in more dense urban areas often have a character of their own. Arches, brick walkways, and ornamental iron gates and fences are common, lending an elegant yet lively feel. Federal style and “stick style” homes fit this look, as do many townhouses.
Ornamental iron, however, has issues when it comes to rust and deterioration. An ornamental steel fence or aluminum fence, on the other hand, can be sculpted to look like wrought iron, but without the need to repair or replace it every few years. (You can compare all three here.)
More modern homes (contemporary, post-modern, Northwest style, etc.) are trending towards making the backyard a quiet oasis where you can rest, read, or share an evening with friends. That means privacy combined with a more “natural” look.
For this, simulated stone (“faux stone”) can provide the ultimate backyard oasis. Not only do the panels provide privacy and nice sound-dampening properties, but it also has a realistic stone appearance.
Many vinyl fences come in larger panels between widely spaced posts. The effect is a vinyl fence that looks more like an outside wall or barrier than a more traditional fence.
This option is great if you want to keep pets and kids in—and peeping eyes out. We’ve seen this style on everything from larger estates to small suburban homes and places of business.
