    Vinyl Fencing

    Vinyl fences are quickly becoming the most popular choice for fencing because they’re durable and require little maintenance. The initial cost is comparable to an aluminum fence and more expensive than other options. However, vinyl fencing is a very cost-effective choice over time.

    Besides being durable and lasting for many years with little maintenance, vinyl fences are also:

    • Easy to clean!
    • Low maintenance! No painting or staining is required.
    • Available in various styles and colors (white or almond) to match any home.

    In addition, A to Z Quality Fencing manufactures a high-quality line of vinyl fencing through our subsidiary company A to Z Fence Supplies. Our vinyl fence is:

    • Manufactured in the USA
    • Easily customizable
    • Backed by a lifetime warranty

    Aluminum Fence/Aluminum Ornamental Fencing

    Aluminum fences are a good choice for those who want the look of a wrought iron fence without the high price tag. Popular around swimming pools and main entrances with gates, an aluminum fence is more durable than wood. Pricing is comparable to vinyl. In addition, an aluminum ornamental fence is:

    • Long-lasting! You’ll enjoy it for many years.
    • Low maintenance! No painting or other regular upkeep is required.
    • Stylish! Various styles and colors match any home.

    Cedar fencing is a great product for almost any fence project because of its high customizability. At A to Z Quality Fencing, we build every section from scratch and offer many options, including:

    • Picket spacing – do you want them close together for privacy or spaced further apart?
    • Top edge finishing – Do you want the top edge of the pickets crafted as dog-eared, country picket (pointed), or scalloped – either concave or convex? Or would you prefer latticework?

    Unfortunately, due to current events, the price of wood fencing is increasing, and obtaining materials can be challenging. A high-quality cedar fence:

    • Lasts between 15-20 years
    • May be stained, painted, or left to weather naturally to a grey color
    • Meets subdivision regulations for natural fencing

    A to Z Quality Fencing manufactures a high-quality line of cedar fencing through our subsidiary company A to Z Fence Supplies. Our cedar fence is:

    • Manufactured in the USA
    • Built onsite
    • Backed by a full seven-year warranty
