titan-fence-feature-vinyl_f_improf_300x212Vinyl fencing has become more popular in recent years primarily for its durability and appearance. Now there is nothing like a traditional wooden fence but we like to make our clients aware of all available fence options.

A vinyl fence typically lasts longer than a wood fence and is nearly 5 times stronger. This means you will be getting more for your money and are investing in something that should last a lifetime. Vinyl maintains its look and does not require painting. Most vinyl is the same color through the entire depth of the material and therefore does not need to be refinished or stained.
A vinyl fence is also easy to clean with most basic household cleaning products.

When making a decision on the right fence for you cost is normally always a consideration. A vinyl is one of the more expensive fencing solutions. If you are on a tight budget it may not be the best choice. It also requires a professional if any part of the fence is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Chain-link fencing / hurricane fencing stands the test of time

10644867_767785709925837_2667898989744246249_nThe workhorse of fences, chain link fence or hurricane style is utilitarian in design and economical in cost. It’s mostly praised for its high durability. The uses of chain-link fencing throughout America have grown dramatically since it was established here in the late 1800’s. Chain link fencing was invented by Charles Barnard in the United Kingdom in 1844 based on cloth weaving machines. Anchor Fence (established in 1898) bought the rights to the machine, and was the first US Company to manufacture chain-link fencing in the United States.

Titan Fence has installed a variety of chain link fences in and around North Texas. We also off it coated in a weather resistant vinyl (black, green or dark brown) if you prefer a different color. In addition, we also carry hurricane fence fabric, posts and rails, gates (swing and slide), and gate hardware for all chain link fence applications including residential fence, light commercial and industrial. Homeowners considering a chain link fence may need to consider HOA guidelines since some neighborhoods only allow certain fence types.

Board on Board vs Side by Side Wood Fence

unnamedA board on board fence is simply built by layering vertical boards on top of each other.  With a Board on Board fence pickets overlap approximately 1″ on each side.  When built correctly, a fence like this should not allow sunlight to penetrate through the slats.  Advantages of this type of fence, other than privacy, are both sides of the fence can be equally attractive and it is true barrier for high winds.  It does require the posts to be buried ,deeper than other fence types due to its weight and wind resistance.

A board on board fence is commonly used by homeowners who have swimming pools or hot tubs and need more privacy than a side by side fence offers.

We suggest this style of fence for homeowners who want not only a quality privacy fence but something that will accent the beauty of their home and landscape. It is not the least expensive type fence to build, but it remains visually impenetrable for its lifetime, even if the boards shrink in dry weather conditions.
