Installing a fence on your property offers a variety of benefits, including privacy, security, and added curb appeal.
While fence installation can be costly once you factor in the material, size, and labor, it’s not impossible to install a fence that fulfills your needs while maintaining a lower cost. With all the different styles and materials available, you can find a fence that complements your home’s aesthetic while staying within your budget.
With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of options so you can compare the best fences to fit your budget!
We are starting with a classic option. Wood fencing offers privacy and a rustic, welcoming aesthetic while maintaining a low price point.
Don’t forget! A taller fence requires more lumber and labor, which adds to the overall cost. Houses with large yards will inevitably cost more than smaller properties as they need more material to enclose the area. If you have a bigger space, you can always choose a cheaper wood to help combat the increased cost and stick to your budget.
Maintenance can turn into a recurring problem with some types of fencing, but the highlight of aluminum fencing is it rarely requires additional maintenance after installation. Aluminum offers a simple aesthetic with more visibility. If your number one concern is privacy, something other than aluminum might be for you. While an aluminum fence will have a higher initial cost, it has less “down the road” costs than a wooden fence.
A popular and dependable option, vinyl fencing is not only affordable but stronger and more flexible than other materials, like wood. It withstands the elements, such as rain, sun, and snow, while only needing soap and water to clean it. Easy maintenance and long life span make vinyl fencing the most affordable option in the end.
If this fence checks so many boxes, why doesn’t every homeowner choose it? Vinyl is made of synthetic plastic, which may not aesthetically appeal to some homeowners that like the more rustic style fences.
Chain Link Fencing
If you have young kids or dogs you don’t want to escape your yard, yet you have a lower budget, a chain link will get the job done. Chain link fences have the lowest price point while being durable and low-maintenance. However, some factors to consider are that this fence is susceptible to rust and allows visibility into your property, so it may not be ideal for every homeowner’s needs.
