There are countless fence styles and designs to choose from, but just about all of them fall into one of five materials categories.

Wood fences have long been a popular choice due to their natural charm and versatility. We recommend red cedar, but the quality of pressure-treated wood is much better than in the old days, and it makes a fine alternative for tighter budgets.

Iron fences are renowned for their strength, elegance, and longevity. They’re often found in upscale residential neighborhoods, and they are very common for commercial properties as well. Our in-house powder coating facilities can handle a multitude of colors and textures, though black remains the most popular choice.

Vinyl/PVC fences have gained popularity in recent years due to their low maintenance requirements and durability. Vinyl/PVC is a high-quality material that resists fading, cracking, and warping. Vinyl/PVC fences have a clean and polished look, and their variety and strength make them suitable for both residential and commercial applications. Vinyl/PVC fences are covered by our coveted lifetime warranty (some restrictions may apply).

Chain link fences, known for their affordability and functionality, are made from interwoven galvanized wire covered in plastic. They’re the least expensive of the four major residential materials, making them the perfect choice for those on a budget.

Agricultural fences are designed to keep farm animals from straying in an unobtrusive and economical way. The specs for each fence vary depending on the type of animal they are meant to constrain.

If you check out the Fencing dropdown on the top menu bar at, you’ll see that we’ve devoted a section to each material type. It’s not the only way to categorize fences (e.g., they could be sorted by the degree of privacy, color, design, or cost), but we find it’s the simplest way to organize our extensive product line.
