What Type of Fencing Is Right for Your Business?

Just like you want to keep your home secure and safe from unruly pests and unwanted visitors, you should keep your place of business just as secure. There is no “one type fits all” when it comes to fencing for your business, in fact, depending on the type of business you have and the location of your office, you have several fencing options to choose from. Below we will take a look at the best fencing options for your business and help you make your decision as easy as possible.

Ornamental Iron Fences

Ornamental iron fences arguably have the most distinct and polished look when compared to their wood fence and vinyl fence counterparts. This makes it a great option for a business that relies strongly on their curb appeal, like architecture firms, school exteriors and even restaurants. An ornamental iron fence might also fit your business if you’re interested in seeing past your property or if you rely on foot traffic for business. With the gaps between the iron poles, you can take in your surrounding neighborhood, and passersby can take in your location. Of course with the benefits of the visibility iron fences bring, there also comes drawbacks.

Ornamental iron fences will not provide any sound barrier if you’re on a busy street, or if there is constant construction across the way. Additionally, if your business requires any privacy, an ornamental iron fence will not provide that.

Wood Privacy Fence

The name of the fence highlights a wooden fence’s best feature: privacy. If you’re looking for the noise blocking and privacy that an ornamental fence is missing, a wood privacy fence might be a better fit for your business. There are several types of wood privacy fence styles, which ensures there will be a fit for your needs.

If you’re looking for a more modern look, try one of our horizontal wood fence options. A more charming, homey look? An arched shadow box style or lattice style could fit the bill. If you’re looking for extreme privacy, the height of our wood fences can be customized to fit your business and city ordinances.

When it comes to curb appeal, wood fences can be stained not only to protect your investment, but match it with the exterior of your building. This will ensure you have a unified look.

Of course, we want to note that you don’t have to choose a single fence type to secure the entirety of your building. It may make sense for you to focus on aesthetics and visibility in the front and choose an ornamental iron fence, while privacy and noise buffering could be a focus of the back of the business and you can add a wood privacy fence accordingly. If you decide to go this route, we have experience working with a variety of transition options to ensure your fencing looks seamless throughout the property.
