Installing a new fence is a huge investment requiring knowledge and the best contractors to complete. Not all fences are built the same, however, and depending on your needs, budget, and personal style, certain fence materials may be more appealing than others. Whether you’re looking to add some flare to your yard and want to turn your backyard into a private living space, Fence Masters can assist you in finding the right fence for you.

Consider Your Needs

While all fences tend to serve the same general purpose – contain your yard and keep unwanted visitors out – you have additional needs for a fence. Knowing what fence is best equipped to perform the desired job is the first step to selecting the right fence for your yard. There are several reasons our customers seek a fence, including:

  • Security
  • Aesthetics
  • Privacy
  • Containment

Chain-Link Fencing

Popular among pet owners, chain-link fencing may not be the most aesthetically pleasing or private fence option, but it is highly durable and secure. For those looking for an effective way to contain pets or young children while securing your yard, chain-link fencing is the route to go. These fences offer a long, low-maintenance lifespan and are one of the most affordable choices.

Aluminum Fencing

Like chain-link, aluminum fencing is durable and long-lasting, but it is also visually appealing. Aluminum fencing comes in various types and colors, and is a great option for the humid Midwest summers, and can withstand the bitter, unpredictable Chicagoland winters. If you have large dogs or energetic children, this might not be the best option, as aluminum fencing often cannot withstand jumping and climbing pressure.

Wrought Iron

Wrought iron fences are one of the most aesthetically pleasing fences on the market. While not the most private, wrought iron fences are a beautiful way to add security to your home. Fence Masters can fabricate wrought iron fencing on-property in our iron shop. Wrought iron fences are a great option for those looking for durable, long-lasting fences that require little maintenance and want to add a little elegant flair to their yard.


Wood fences are one of the best options for homeowners looking for both security and privacy. While most picture the traditional white picket fence or privacy fence, there are actually quite a few options when choosing wood fences. From height to stain to wood type, wooden fences offer various styles that you often don’t see with other fence materials. Wood fences require more ongoing maintenance than other fences. However, the added benefits of wood often outweigh the extra care they often require.

Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl is a great alternative to the traditional wooden fence. As a weather-resistant and durable fence material, vinyl fencing has seen a surge in popularity in recent years. While the price point is slightly higher, it is worth it, considering vinyl fences are easy to maintain and offer longevity.
