What fence is right for you?

Joe EverestUncategorized

Choosing the right fence is a tough decision, especially with so many options out there. Do you want the elegant look of ornamental iron, or the security of a 6ft privacy fence? Maybe you’re looking for something more traditional, like a standard chain link fence. It all depends on what your needs are and what purpose you want your fence to serve. To make things easier we’ve listed some of the different types of fencing we offer to help you decide what’s best for you.

Eastern Red Cedar

Let’s start with everyone’s favorite, the Eastern Red Cedar. We all know it looks great, but did you know the boards we use are harvested from South Missouri and Northern Arkansas? The best part is since these boards are native to our climate, it gives them a much longer lifespan. In fact, they’re guaranteed to last for 15 years. In addition to that we like to use Postmater Steel Post on our wood fencing. This gives your fence extra strength, and longevity. They help prevent warping, rotting and can withstand 70 mph winds. We all know that’s helpful here in the Ozarks. If you’re looking for a fence that gives you privacy and an extra sense of security then a cedar privacy fence may be the right one for you. For example a 250 linear foot, single gate, 6ft privacy cedar fence with steel post will range anywhere from $7,890 – $9,970.

Ornamental Iron

Next up is the elegant cousin to wood, Ornamental Iron. Here at Ozark Fence we use Ameristar Fence Products, which means each Montage Ornamental Steel Fence we install comes with a 20 year E-Coat Manufacturer’s Warranty. These fences combine the strength of steel with the longevity of aluminum. This gives the fence greater structural integrity and the E-Coat process helps protect it from rust and corrosion for years to come. If you’re looking to make your house stand out, then this is the best option for you. A 250 linear foot, single gate, 4ft ornamental iron fence ranges from $10,410 – $13,140.

Galvanized/Color Coated Chain Link

Ah, and finally the tried and true chain link fence. Who doesn’t like a classic? Our galvanized chain link mesh is manufactured right here in the USA and is up to 3x as strong as comparable imported chain link mesh. The coating applied afterwards makes the fence much stronger, and much more rust resistant. In addition to the galvanized coated mesh we offer color coated chain link mesh as well. This 250 linear foot, single gate, 4ft galvanized or black chain link fence ranges from $4,450 – $6,080.  

So there you have it. As you can see no fence is better than the other, but some options are better for your needs. Want to see what fence options work best for your backyard?
