Fences Built to Match the Style of  Your Home 

Curious about which type of fence you should go with? Here are some of our options:

Wood Fences

The most popular fencing type also provides the most privacy and a nice aesthetic. Wood fences have a natural feel and can be painted any color the owner likes. Built with pressure-treated wood, they are hearty, durable and relatively inexpensive. Wood fences come in a wide variety of sizes, styles and shapes. Unless you are adept at erecting fences, it’s a good idea to hire a professional installer so your fence will last a lifetime.

Each job is Stick Built by 6×6 or 4×4 Posts all with Pressure Treated Lumber. Wood Fences are cost friendly and classic looking with various options available per homeowner. Wood Fences have a 10 year warranty.

Aluminum or Steel Fences

These fences generally don’t offer the same degree of privacy that wooden fences do, but they are corrosion-resistant and basically maintenance-free over their lifetimes. The value of aluminum and steel fences is that they serve as a facsimile of a wrought-iron fence at a small fraction of the cost, but keep in mind that they tend to be much less sturdy.

With clean lines, corrosion resistant security, these fences are maintenance free. Aluminum fences are built with 1×1 Rectangular Pickets and clean lines that come in several formats.

Wrought Iron Fences

A popular choice in the Charleston area because of its nod to the area’s rich history and because of the popularity of master blacksmith Phillip Simmons, wrought iron is often considered the most aesthetically pleasing of all fence types. Designed to be decorative, wrought iron is handmade and fashioned into any shape desired, making it great for uneven surfaces.
Though strong and beautiful, wrought iron is by far the most expensive fencing, and requires constant upkeep. It must be sanded and repainted every two or three years.

PVC (Vinyl) Fences

On the other side of the cost continuum is PVC, or vinyl, fencing, a strong and durable material that provides privacy and comes with a lifetime warranty. PVC is resistant to the elements and comes in a variety of styles that simulate wooden fences. PVC fencing should be cleaned periodically with soap and water.

Contractors like working with PVC because it is flexible and inexpensive, but some homeowners prefer the natural look of real wood.

These fences are durable with gates and posts reinforced for longevity. PVC is low maintenance that won’t warp, split or crack and will keep a clean appearance. PVC Fences have a lifetime warranty.

Chain Link Fences

Chain link fences are cheap, durable and functional, but they aren’t very pretty, don’t offer privacy and look institutional. These fences are often draped in plant life both to cover them up and add some privacy.
