Protect Your Property with Quality Fence Installation.

Residential fences are an important element of home security and privacy. Whether you’re looking for a fence to keep your family safe, or to create a barrier from the outside world, there are many different types of residential fences available. From wood panel fencing to picket fencing, there is something for every need and budget. Vinyl fences are also popular for their durability and low maintenance requirements. With so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the right one for your needs. Consider all of your options carefully before making a decision on which type of residential fence will work best for you.

Hiring the right fencing contractor can make all the difference when it comes to ensuring that your new residential fence is beautiful, safe, and secure. Here at Total Home Fence and Deck in Lenexa, Kansas, we strive to give our customers the best quality in terms of materials, choices, and craftsmanship. Once we have built your fence, you will love to sit there, take in the views, and spend quality time with your loved ones.

Select The Proper Fence Type

Your fence style depends on the goal you are trying to accomplish. Whether you’d like to boost home security, increase home value, or simply update your home’s overall aesthetic, there is a fence for you.

Privacy Fence

If the goal is to block sight lines, you need solid fencing, which generally means it’ll have tightly spaced vertical boards, pickets (pointed stakes), or framed panels to prevent you from seeing out and others from seeing in. A privacy fence is a great way to add extra security and privacy to your home. The fence can be designed in a variety of patterns and styles to provide the desired level of visibility while still providing the necessary security. Privacy fences are also available in different heights to suit the needs of each homeowner. With careful planning, you can create a beautiful and secure privacy fence that will protect your home for years to come.

Security Fence

A security fence is an effective way to protect your property from intruders. It should be at least 6 feet tall or higher, making it hard to climb over, and not easily bypassed. A security fence can be made of pickets, chain link or other materials, and should fully enclose the area you want to protect. Pickets or other spiky tops help to deter climbers—especially if the fence has a smooth outer face, so there’s no place to step. For fences with horizontal rails on one side and vertical pickets on the other—in other words, for most fences—that means facing the pickets out. You may also need a security gate for increased security and access control. With the right type of fence in place, you can rest assured that your property is secure from potential intruders.

Decorative Fence

Your fence doesn’t need to be nearly as large or obtrusive if the goal is to establish property lines, add a structural element to the landscape, or improve curb appeal. You can choose one that is only two to four feet high and features latticework, spaced pickets, and other ornamental designs that enhance the view rather than obscure it. Alternatively, you can opt for a rail fence made up of just posts and two or three horizontal members, like those found on horse farms.

Safety Fence

To create a dog run, enclose a pool area, or deter wildlife from trespassing on your property—without changing the view—the most durable option is a wire fence, such as a chain link. At their most economical, these consist of galvanized metal mesh, but adding a black or green vinyl coating helps to make the fence almost disappear from view. Or, for an even lower-cost fence, you can use a metal or plastic mesh hung on metal posts or stakes.

Fencing Styles and Materials

There are several materials we can use to build your fence. Your choice depends on your budget, the style of your fence—which usually follows the overall design of your home—and the amount of maintenance you want to do every year to keep your fence in pristine condition.

Wood Panel Fencing

Also known as stockade fencing, wood panel fencing is a good option for establishing boundaries for children and pets and improves privacy and security. Pre-built panels and individual components (boards and rails) are available in sections that range from 4 to 6 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet long. There are two primary styles of panel fencing: shadowbox panels, which use alternating boards on each side of the fence rail to give the fence the same appearance on both sides, or a solid panel fence, which is ideal for concealing undesirable areas or concealing a roadway from view. Additionally, shadowbox panels permit air circulation and offer partial views.

Picket Fencing

Picket fencing is an attractive and cost-effective way to add a decorative, protective border to your property. It consists of individual pickets that are installed between posts, which can be of varying heights depending on the desired level of security. Picket fencing is easy to maintain and provides excellent security for large pets or children. It can be purchased as preassembled panels or as individual components for custom installation. Picket fencing is a great choice for those looking for an aesthetically pleasing yet secure barrier around their property.

Split-rail Fencing

Split-rail fencing gives a landscape a rustic appearance. It is also referred to as post-and-rail fencing. You can use this kind of fence to outline particular portions of your yard or to create a clear demarcation along property lines. The horizontal rails come in lengths ranging from 8 to 11 feet and can be ordered split or round.

Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl fencing is stylish and requires little upkeep. Although the materials occasionally need to be rinsed, they normally do not decay, fade, or experience other negative impacts of the elements. The availability of pre-made panels, which can reduce the cost of vinyl fencing, is one benefit.

Styles of vinyl fencing include wood panel, picket, and rail fencing. Vinyl fencing is offered in solid panels to establish boundaries and seclusion as well as shadowbox panels to add visual appeal and durability, similar to wood fencing. Picket fence panels look nice and are useful for defining boundaries and keeping dogs in. Vinyl rail fencing is a sturdy option for delineating boundaries and other sections of the landscape because it is manufactured to resemble wooden boards.

Aluminum Fencing

Aluminum fencing is a popular choice for residential properties due to its low maintenance and lightweight design. It is also highly decorative, making it an attractive addition to any home. Aluminum fencing is also resistant to corrosion, meaning it will last longer than other materials in harsh weather conditions. It is available in a variety of colors and styles, making it easy to customize your fence to match the look of your home. With proper care and maintenance, aluminum fencing can provide years of protection and beauty for your property.

Chain-Link Fencing

One of the most inexpensive, low-maintenance, and long-lasting types of fencing is chain link. These fences, sometimes known as hurricane fences, can assist keep pets and children inside while excluding pest animals like foxes, coyotes, and raccoons. Taller chain link fencing can also increase security. The weather-resistant fabric, which is made of galvanized steel wire, comes in 10- or 50-foot rolls and is available in heights ranging from 3 to 12 feet. Different mesh sizes and wire thicknesses or gauges are available for chain link fabric. The wire is heavier the lower the gauge number.

It is possible to get fabric with a weather-resistant green or black vinyl covering if you don’t like the silvery appearance of a bare fence. For further seclusion or to hide undesirable portions of a landscape, you can also weave special plastic slats into the fabric of the fence.

Fencing Rails, Posts, and Gates

In most cases fence railings, posts, and gates are all customizable. It is important to understand your options before designing your project.

Fence Railings

Rails support fence panels or pickets for wood, vinyl and chain link fencing. If you use pre assembled panels, the rails are already attached for easy installation.

Fence Posts

Posts provide stability to the fence by supporting fence rails or wire mesh. End or terminal posts are used to indicate the starting and stopping points of your fence. Corner posts create angles so you can change the direction of the fencing, while line posts support straight runs. Some vinyl posts require a steel insert for stability.

Gates & Entry

We all know the benefits of having a gate. They help to keep our home safe from intruders and burglars, as well as cars that might crash into our house or accidentally hurt someone. Gates are also great for keeping pets in your yard without worrying about them getting out on their own accord. The size and function of your gate varies depending on your specific project. Depending on your fence type, you can find single gates for foot traffic or double gates for vehicles. Remote-controlled openers are also available for some types of gates.
