There are many different reasons why you might decide to get a fence. You might want some privacy for your yard, mark the boundary of your property, or even just have a safe, protected area for the kids and pets to play. What's more than that, a nice fence will also add a tremendous amount of aesthetic value to your house as well.

  1. 1. What is the Main Reason For the Fence?

    While there are millions of houses that have fences, they have those fences for a particular reason. Knowing what you would like a fence for is also the most important part in helping you decide which type of fence will be right for your needs.

    If you have any pets that you would like to have in your backyard, a picket or wrought iron fence may not be the best choice for your needs. If you want a fence to increase the amount of privacy in your yard, chances are you will want either a shadow box or privacy fence. But what if you have a lake or view that you don't want to block? This means that you probably don't want any type of solid fence, as it will disrupt that beautiful view.

    Before you get any type of fence, these are some of the questions that you will need to ask yourself. My Fence Guys are able to help you choose the best style of fence and the best fence materials to best for your situation.

  3. 3. Will the Weather Affect my Fence?

    Virginia's climate is rough on all different types of fences, especially when it's wood. It almost feels that Virginia was designed to beat up fences with its hot and humid weather. This can lead to warping, rotting and destroys the toughest of paints and seals. This is exactly why we design the best fences for your property, designed with Virginia's weather in mind.

  4. 4. Will my Fence Last Long?

    Depending upon the type of fence this has a direct relationship to how long your new fence will last. Wooden fences usually last for around 10 years or so. A Vinyl fence can last anywhere from 20-30 years. As for an aluminum fence, there is no real answer, as it will probably last until the end of time.
