The Different Types of Privacy Fences Available

The options seem endless when finding the perfect privacy fence for your unique needs and style. We hope you already took the “What is the best privacy fence for me?” quiz!) In a nutshell, here are the privacy fence types we offer at A to Z Quality Fencing.

  • Modern aluminum fencing provides a sleek, modern look with an aluminum frame and vinyl inlay. These fences are extremely customizable, durable, and almost maintenance free.
  • Vinyl fencing has become an increasingly popular material for privacy fences due to its durability and longevity. Simulated wood colors allow for the creation of classic, natural-looking fences while solid colors allow for the creation of more modern looking fences.
  • Cedar or wood fencing provides a truly customizable, natural fence. Cedar fences require more care and maintenance. In addition, they are less durable than manufactured materials like aluminum and vinyl.
  • Chain link with chain link fence slats. Fence slats are available in different colors and shapes to increase privacy.

Of course, each fencing material can be configured into different styles to match your architectural and landscaping style, all with the goal of providing the benefits of privacy fencing!

Modern Aluminum Fencing

Our new Modern Aluminum Fence Series creates a sleek, modern privacy fence with an aluminum frame and vinyl inlay. The aluminum and vinyl components require minimal maintenance, do not rust or rot like wood fences, and come in various colors. Our warranties protect all materials from fading or cracking over time. The inlays are the same material our vinyl fencing is constructed with so read more about our vinyl fencing below!

Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl fencing requires minimal maintenance, does not rust or rot like wood fences, and comes in various colors and styles. Quality vinyl also retains its color without fading or cracking over time. This makes it an excellent choice for those who want to add a touch of class to their outdoor environment.

Insider Tip: Understand the Quality of the Vinyl Provided

Not all vinyl products are the same. For example, A to Z Quality Fencing manufactures contractor-grade vinyl fencing requiring less maintenance than other brands. For instance, no UV-resistant coating is necessary to keep the fence looking brand new. Additionally, the material is thicker and more durable than other vinyl fencing products.

Maintaining Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fences are an excellent option for homeowners looking for a privacy fence that’s low-maintenance and long-lasting. To ensure your vinyl fence remains in tip-top condition, it is essential to regularly inspect it for signs of wear or damage and take care of any repairs as soon as possible. Cleaning the fence using mild detergents and a soft brush or cloth is also necessary to ensure that dirt, moss, and mold are not allowed to build up on the surface. Additionally, seal your vinyl fence with a UV-resistant coating every few years to keep it looking brand new. With regular care and maintenance, your vinyl fence will continue to look great and protect your property for years.

Wood Fencing

Wood fencing is a classic choice that adds warmth and charm to your outdoor space. It is a natural material that blends in with the environment. In addition, wood fencing can be stained or painted in any color you choose. Cedar is the most popular type of wood for privacy fencing. It is highly durable and naturally resistant to rot and insects. Because installers can cut wood in any shape during assembly, cedar fences offer the most flexibility in creating unique designs. However, wood or cedar fencing requires proper maintenance and care to continue looking great for years.

Insider Tip: Understand the Quality of the Cedar Provided

Not all cedar products are the same. For example, A to Z Quality Fencing uses thicker boards than many installers resulting in a wood fence that is less likely to crack or warp over time.

Maintaining Cedar Fences

To keep cedar or wood fencing looking its best, it requires regular cleaning and staining; use a pressure washer to remove dirt and mildew or replace worn boards or rails. You should also check your fence regularly for signs of rotting wood or damage caused by the weather. Finally, consider applying a coat of water sealant each year for extra protection, so the wood doesn’t absorb moisture and cause warping or cracking. These simple steps will help ensure your wood privacy fence looks good for years.

Chain link fences are made from galvanized steel, making them rust-resistant and long-lasting. Combined with privacy slats or decorative panels, it adds more privacy and style to your outdoor space. But beware, chain link fencing with privacy slats gives the illusion of a less expensive option. However, significant installation labor is involved. Unless installing slats yourself, the fence installation cost is the same as choosing a vinyl or wood privacy fence. 

How to Choose the Right Type of Privacy Fence for Your Home and Budget

Congratulations! You’ve read about the benefits of privacy fence and are ready to find your perfect privacy fence. Now what?

When it comes time to choose a privacy fence for your home, there are several things to consider to make the right choice for your needs and budget. First, determine your style type and how much coverage you need. Are you looking for something that obscures your view of neighbors and passersby? Something low-maintenance with a classic look? A mix of both? 

Once you have these answers, take measurements of your property to get accurate quotes on the material and installation costs associated with each type of fencing material. For example, some materials like vinyl or modern aluminum may cost more upfront but are extremely low maintenance compared to wood, with slightly lower installation costs. 

Finally, ask yourself how vital longevity is when it comes to the life of your fence. Some materials last longer than others, so factor that into your decision-making process. With careful consideration and research into what types may fit within your budget, choosing the best privacy fence for your home doesn’t have to be an impossible task, especially with our quiz at the top of this post that helps you navigate these questions!

Stronger Posts

We understand that your fence is only as strong as your posts. This is why we take great care to use the strongest posts, free of defects. We not only offer heavy-duty wood posts but our no-mess, no-dig installation adds a galvanized steel post inside the wooden post for an even stronger post.

All high-quality posts are built to ensure that your fence stands strong for years.

Stronger Top Rails

The Modern Aluminum Fence top rails are routed into the posts creating an even stronger fence installation! The U channels are screwed to the frame and the entire fence is quickly assembled on-site using our no-mess, no-dig installation.

A to Z Quality Fencing’s proprietary Modern Aluminum Fence features one of the most modern, sleek designs on the market. These fences are long-lasting and bring the best of A to Z’s vinyl (including simulated wood finishes) and aluminum products together, allowing for custom fabrication of modern, industrial, privacy fencing.

Stronger Fencing

Compared to wood, vinyl fencing is much stronger. Vinyl fencing is flexible and durable, which helps vinyl out-perform wood fencing in windy conditions and with environmental exposure to UV rays and weather.

Want to create a super durable fence that’s as unique as you? With a Modern Aluminum Fence, you can pair A to Z Quality Fencing’s commercial aluminum fence with the inlay that best fits your style. Our vinyl inlay is available in 9 colors including various simulated wood tones, so you can create the exact look you want.

Durable Frame

Modern Aluminum Fence posts are composed of galvanized steel posts covered by our commercial-grade aluminum with its superior powder coat finish to create a stronger, longer-lasting fence that is more than weather-resistant – it will not rust with exposure to the elements!

Easy to Clean

Vinyl fencing can be cleaned easily with a regular garden hose. If you get a little mildew from moisture or shady conditions, you can use a mild dish soap and then spray off the fence with a garden hose. Vinyl fences are very easy to clean, making them a great option for low-maintenance fencing.

More Options Available

Vinyl fencing is available in a wide variety of configurations to match any property, home, or purpose. Iconic, white vinyl picket fences give a feel of classic Americana with that white-picket-fence-style. Darker vinyl fences can be installed to make a space look more elegant or modern. From short picket to tall privacy, vinyl fencing can be designed to enhance your backyard or business.

Strict Standards

All our aluminum fence meets BOCA (Building Officials and Code Administrators) code. These strict standards ensure your fencing is sturdy, durable, and non-climbable, protecting your property no matter if you are fencing in a business, backyard, or swimming pool!

The BOCA health and safety codes are critical when installing fencing around a swimming pool because they prevent children from getting over, under, or through our aluminum fencing.

Beautiful Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fences are a bright, bold fence choice. Available in a variety of colors, vinyl fencing can be installed in a many configurations to help you enhance the beauty of your property. And, because vinyl isn’t as porous as wood, vinyl fences retain their color and finish much longer than wood fencing so you can enjoy your fence for years to come.

Superior Powder Coating

Our superior powder coating provides a smooth, durable finish, more resistant to chips, scratches, fading, rust, and corrosion than other finishes. This long-lasting, low-maintenance finish results from our application and curing processes that melt the powder particles to create a smooth, continuous, and permanent bond to the aluminum.

In addition, our paint finish meets AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association) specifications.

Custom Fabrication

You’re steps away from a one-of-a-kind aluminum fence made just for you! Our high-quality aluminum fencing comes from our sister company A to Z Fence Supplies. We assemble each aluminum fence to meet your unique design requirements, including color, finials, puppy panels, O-rings, and custom top edges.

Stronger Posts & Hardware

A benefit of choosing our team to install your chain link fence is that we use only the most durable posts and hardware.

Chain-link fences are known for being the last fences standing during hurricanes, tornados, and other severe weather events.

Unparalleled Durability

The weakest point of any fence is where the post comes out of the ground. Our no-mess, no-dig installation process pounds a galvanized steel post into the soil. Then we slide an aluminum post over the galvanized steel posts. A steel post is stronger at ground level than an aluminum post.

Our high-quality aluminum fence, combined with our no-mess, no-dig installation process, creates a highly durable aluminum fence.

Top Quality Rails
