fence made of aluminum or vinyl for the swimming pool, spa,
or hot tub.
You may need fencing
for safety and insurance reasons like trampolines, pools,
playsets, play ground areas, or certain breeds of dog that
have a tendency to bite.
Getting a fence is
a great idea, don't you think?
Of course it is!

Some Homeowners think
that building a fence is an expensive home improvment project.
Not really. First of all fences vary in price depending upon
the style of fencing your interested in and the building/installation
conditions of the fence on your property. Most reputable fence
companies are happy to give free fence estimates and review
any fencing concerns or details for your project.
Some people choose
to design and build their own fence, some follow fencing how
to plans and guides. Wood fences are a popular choice for
how to installers. If you're the weekend warrior type, decent
with numbers and measurements, have a good eye for detail,
and not afraid of a little potentially, back-breaking and
dirty work, you just might be able to build and install your
But trust me, your

(440) - 1x6x6DE

of debris, rough site charges which includes
clearing & hard digs, possible rental

you are a weekend warrior, make sure all underground
utilities (gas, electric, cable, phone, &
water)are contacted & marked prior to
digging! Those lines that aren't marked, ie.
sprinkler systems, sanitary lines, etc. be
certain to know the location of those lines
prior to the construction of your new fence!
When I first started
researching fences I had know idea how much information was
available and that pertained to fencing. For example: In building
fences there are many choices and fencing options including...types
of fences, fence parts and accessories, fence gates, hinges,
grade of fence materials, fence colors, various fencing styles,
type of posts (both wooden and metal), fence accents,etc.
More valuable fence
You have style choices
between scalloped fences or half-moon/wooden arched fences.
Wood or Vinyl Lattice fence accents. Chain link fences, Vinyl
coated chain link in a variety of colors and in some cases
chain with barbed wire fencing. Black Aluminum fences verses
Wrought Iron or an Ornamental fence. Vinyl fences or PVC/plastic
fencing. Semi-Private Wooden Shadowbox Fencing or Ribbed Vinyl
fences. Complete Privacy Fences like Wood Board on Board and
Vinyl Tongue and Groove Fences.Custom designed wooden fences
or Traditional picket fences varying in height and style or
pre-fabbed panel fences. Contemporary Fence Vinyl styles such
as Princeton, Countess, and Victorian. Classic Fence Styles
such as the Manchester and Concave version. Traditional Fence
Styles such as the Charleston Concave fence version, Yorkshire,
and Colonial fencing.
Fencing (as in Vinyl "Concave" Fence Styles) is
basically the same as "Scalloped or Scalloped Topped"
(as in Wooden Fence Styles.)
