If the cost of a new fence is a bit of a concern, you should know that there are budget-friendly options out there that may fit your budget better.
Rajul Patel, president and founder of Fence Outlet
, Central Florida's fencing experts, notes that while a fence can be a costly addition to your yard – especially if you are enclosing a large area – fencing is usually considered a necessity in today’s landscape design.
"To maintain your property's privacy, security, appearance and value, fencing is really a must," Patel said. "But if you’re on a budget, or just frugal by nature, there are other effective and attractive fencing options for you. Today's fences last for years without needing expensive repairs, allowing you to get the most out of your investment."
Here are two cost-effective fencing solutions:
Chain link fencing
is one of the most budget-friendly fencing options currently available. It can blend with the surrounding landscape and is not as noticeable as other fencing types. With regard to maintenance, chain link fences are very durable and require few repairs.
Chain link is available in galvanized or black, green and brown vinyl coated finishes, and is perfect for securing residential, commercial and industrial properties.
Another budget-friendly fencing material is vinyl, although according to Patel, it is not usually thought of as a lower-cost option. The cost savings come in after the initial investment because of vinyl fencing’s durability and low maintenance. A vinyl fence
can last for decades, requiring few repairs and little maintenance.
"Not only is vinyl fencing attractive, it also is extremely durable and will not rot, peel, rust or turn yellow or brittle," Patel said. "So no matter what your budget, there is an attractive and effective fencing option for you."
