Settling in to your newly built home but suddenly realize you need a fence because a pond is too close and inviting for your kids? Perhaps your dog can’t be trusted to stay in the yard?
Whatever the reason, you find yourself looking for a local, experienced fence contractor who can help you select the right fence for your needs.
Midwest Fence has been building Twin Cities fences since 1947 and has a team of experienced fence specialists who consult with our clients to make sure they have the fence they need and want.
The first step is to know if you’d like the fence to offer privacy. Privacy wood fences are a typical choice, particularly for new homes.
Privacy fences have no space between slats and, at six to eight feet tall restrict sight lines and access.
Wood fences offer a style appreciated by many homeowners as wood offers a unique look that can be customized in a variety of ways.
While treated oak fence posts and slats will withstand weather, regular maintenance is recommended to make the wood last.
A similar look to wood can be found with PVC fencing. Posts are strong and the material can withstand the elements, particularly if not in full sun all days.
Composite materials continue to come to market, providing a wood like appearance and functionality — nails and saws are used — but the boards are made from recycled fibers.
If privacy isn’t a top priority, and you’d like the breeze and natural elements to flow through the fence there are a variety of options.
They include a picket fence made of wood, vinyl, composite or aluminum. Chain link fencing offers similar functionality to picket fences.
These fences provide an open feel, don’t typically need to be as tall and encloses pets and children.
