Different Types of Fencing
The fencing type chosen for a home has an important role to play in its exterior decor. Moreover, it is also a vital element of the overall security. After all, security and privacy are two essential features of a home’s integrity. Therefore, it is essential to buy something that is capable of fulfilling these requirements. There are several types of fences available in the market, the most popular kinds of fencing in Perth being wood, aluminium, wrought iron, steel and vinyl.
Wood Fencing
This one is among the most common types in Perth, but also in the whole of Australia. It provides a profound feeling of warmth and security due to its height. Its size and height can greatly influence the installation costs and requires a considerable amount of time to be installed. But sometimes, they can even last for as long as the house does.
Aluminium Fencing
There are basically two reasons as to why this type is popular among many Australians. First of all, it does not require any maintenance except for decoration and painting costs and secondly, it bears almost the same appearance as any other type of fence. But the aluminum fencing is incapable of providing adequate amount of security and does not work well in areas having severe weather conditions.
Wrought Iron Fencing
This type is usually chosen by people who want to incorporate creative designs on top of their fences. Although wrought iron fencing is exquisite as well as durable, it requires regular maintenance in the form of sanding or repainting once in every two or three years. However, the security provided by this type is weak. Moreover wrought iron fences can be expensive because they are custom made.
Steel Fencing
Steel or colorbond fencing in Perth has gained a lot of popularity and there are a multitude of reasons for it. Firstly, colorbond fences can easily tolerate adverse climatic conditions such as rain, strong winds, sudden forays from branches, etc. Secondly, they are available in a wide range of designs and colours. Thirdly, they do not require extensive maintenance except cleaning once in a blue moon. Fourthly, they are sturdy and therefore promise a considerable amount of security.
Vinyl Fencing
Vinyl fencing is regarded as being sturdier and more flexible than wooden fences and requires no maintenance. Cleaning them is also very easy as vinyl resists stains, dust and graffiti paints. But their installation costs are quite high.
