A wooden, steel or vinyl fence? That is the question.

It’s not just a fence, it’s an extension of your home. Whether it is for pet containment, privacy, security or just a back drop for landscaping, most fences are built for a purpose. You and your family need to first consider exactly why you wish to add this classic extension of your home and what purpose you would like it to serve. Once you have agreed on that, it’s time to discuss material options.

Most fences are made with one of three materials; wood, ornamental aluminum/steel or low-maintenance vinyl. Each specific fence type has a very different look, maintenance plan, price and purpose to it. Let’s explore those right now.

Wooden fences.

Wood is still one of the most popular and reasonably priced materials used in the construction of fences in Maryland. There are two species of lumber that are typically used in the construction of your new wood fence. One is Pressure treated southern yellow pine and the other is western red cedar. However, no matter what type of wood your fence is built with, routine maintenance comes along with the package. The cleaning, sealing and annual staining of a wooden fence is highly recommended to keep your fence looking as fresh and new as possible. For your convenience, mid Atlantic now offers the cleaning and sealing of your wooden fence as a complete service, yet this routine maintenance is many times a factor that turns people away from wood. Maintenance is something you simply have to evaluate if you and your family are ready to take care of?

Steel fences.

Mid Atlantic’s steel and aluminum fences are unique in that the powder coating process that our manufacturers use enables our suppliers to provide you with a lifetime manufacturer guarantee on the finish.  This gives you the wrought iron fence you have always dreamed of, without the hassle of having to paint it year after year. Steel fences can bring true elegance to a home, as well as a much more clear view. Steel is one of the best ways to provide security to a property, without the maintenance of traditional wrought iron fences. To create an even more desired element of elegance and class, add some brick pillars or a couple of stone columns, perhaps even an arched top gate or two? The fancy options are endless.

Vinyl fences.

Mid-Atlantic Deck and Fence is one of Maryland’s only manufacturers/installers of vinyl fencing in Maryland. Vinyl fencing is opportune for the family that is looking for multiple options (computerized program with thousands of colors and styles), with low-to-no maintenance at all. There is no staining, sealing or painting required. Simply a soap and water wash-down roughly once a year and your fence will stay like-new. These fences should last you a lifetime with the proper quality, which Mid Atlantic has committed to assuring each and every customer that they will receive the best quality vinyl fence the market has to offer. We invite you and your family to please stop by our exceptionally large indoor showroom and facility located at 800 Rt. 3 South in Gambrills, Maryland to see the vinyl options for yourselves!
