Summer is one of the most popular times for homeowners to install new fencing. The kids are out of school, which means creating a safe place is of the utmost importance. It is also an ideal time to begin home improvement projects as the weather warms up and you can spend more time outdoors. If you’re interested in beginning a fencing project this year, we recommend looking into these 2021 trends:
Two-tone fencing creates a modern, stately appearance for wood and vinyl fencing. Typically, a lighter color is used for the bulk of the boards while the structural fence posts are painted or stained a darker color. This look is especially popular with wood and can be created by layering different kinds of wood or using different wood stains.
Aluminum to replace wrought iron
Wrought iron used to be the top choice for garden fencing and high-end security fencing. However, a more affordable and water-resistant option is on the market that is gaining traction in 2021. Aluminum fences give the same appearance as wrought iron but are lightweight, affordable, and will stand the test of time. If you’ve been considering wrought iron, ask about aluminum alternatives to see if this option is right for you.
Matching fence and porch railing
In 2021, more and more homeowners are planning both railing addition and fencing to match with their home style. By installing porch rails and your fence at the same time, you have the opportunity to match materials and create a more cohesive look. This style looks especially great with wooden and aluminum.
Low-maintenance vinyl fencing
Vinyl is a bit pricey for some homeowners, but this luxury material is gaining in popularity in 2021. The return on investment of vinyl is unmatched — it’s long-lasting, easy to maintain, and is ideal for coastal communities where heavy rainfall is expected in the summer. If you’re unsure of what direction to take your 2021fencing project, vinyl may be the way to go.
