  • Are you wanting a low maintenance fence? Aluminum, vinyl, composite and chain link are all low maintenance fence materials that provide lasting beauty for years to come.
  • Do you like the natural beauty of wood? Wood is a classic style that goes with most properties and outdoor decor. Wood products can be stained, painted or left in a natural state. When left untreated wood naturally begins to weather to a grey tone. With a life span of 15-20 years.
