The iconic white picket fence is an integral part of the “American Dream”: home ownership, 2.3 children, and a lush green yard with a picket fence. Picket fences are typically made of wooden boards – painted white or whitewashed – but they can also be made out of vinyl (polyvinyl chloride, or 'PVC').
Fences have the great merit of being more instant than hedges and less expensive than walls. That is the reason they are so often chosen by builders for new properties, and why they are frequently chosen again when the original fences come to the end of their useful life. Closeboard and panel fences are popular, but predictable. There are plenty of styles to choose from, however, so select a fence appropriate to your garden design, yet practical for the purposes you have in mind.
When it comes to putting up fence on and around a residential area, there are three main types of fence materials from which homeowners can choose: Wood, Vinyl, and Aluminum. Of course, what will be best for you is contingent on various security and privacy needs, and landscape-enriching factors. Fences readily mark the boundaries of your property and perform many other important functions including child and pet protection and landscape beautification, so making the proper fence selection is key to any homeowner’s design plan. The three main fence types are the following:
There are so many popular styles of residential fencing choices. An attempt to narrow this question down to one fence style is difficult, if not impossible.

A good amount of our residential customers are in the historic Richmond and Williamsburg Virginia areas. The classic appearance of ornamental aluminum fence offers long lasting powder coat finishes that replicate the earlier period look of wrought iron.
