For us, vinyl fences are the most commonly purchased. This is because of the various styles. For example, you can get picket vinyl, privacy vinyl, basically whatever you can imagine. Vinyl is flexible which gives it its strength from cracking. It is maintenance free other then occasional hosing off. It comes in at a higher price point but can last a lifetime.
One of the most basic and attractive fencing types is aluminum. This fence comes in many different styles. While it does not provide the amount of security many homeowners look for in a fence, it’s relatively maintenance free. This fence can provide a safely enclosed yard for medium to large sized dogs. Price depends on style.
Wood is the most popular fencing type across America. Not only does it give homeowners a sense of privacy with the height wood fencing provides, but they are also one of the more attractive options on the market. Although wood fence is commonly around 5'-6', it can be made to various heights and plenty of styles. Price depends on style.
Chain link fences do not add much privacy to the home, but perform the other basic functions of a fence quite well. These fences are great for dogs and can vary by height. They can also last a lifetime and require little to no maintenance. Price depends on style.
As for custom fence, you can get multiple types of fence done in different areas of your yard, have chain link and wood, custom designed vinyl or aluminum, etc. Price depends on design expectations.
