Often, we think of fences as permanent, sorta dreary and unchanging barriers. But with this blog post, let’s throw that notion out the window and discuss a few ways in which you can customize your fence to suit your specific needs and tastes.
There are many aftermarket components available on the market that will change the way your fence looks without compromising it structurally. So, jumping right into things…
1. Fence post caps
These come in a variety of colours and shapes from simple round or square caps to diamond shape-topped pieces or even fun and wacky pieces like the one displayed below that can add a bit of pizazz to your chainwire fence. These pieces sit right on top of your fence posts, meaning that installation and removal is quite simple and easy.
2. Base trim
Base trim is especially useful if your fence will be joining your veranda or porch. It also looks great when installed onto gate posts, creating a nice finished look. See the picture below for just one example of base trim – that particular design is commonly used for securing fence posts to platforms for which inserting the post directly is not an option.
Like post caps, these come in a wide variety of colours and styles to ensure that they fit right into any existing structure on your property.
3. Privacy shutters
Privacy shutters allow you to enjoy the privacy of panel fencing while still reaping all the benefits of chainwire fencing. They also allow you to change the way your fence looks without replacing the entire thing; there are even shutters available to make your fence look like a hedge and blend in with any landscaping you have on your property, creating a truly professional and cohesive look.
These shutters are most commonly woven in between the diamonds of chainwire fencing. In other cases, they are simply fastened to the wire.
4. Various hardware kits
There are a staggering amount of hardware kits designed to suit just about any design you could possibly want. From various colours to specific styles and designs, you can find latches, bolts and collars to fit with quite literally any fence design you want.
Hopefully this list has shown you just a few of the ways you can customize your fence and create a truly one-of-a-kind piece for your property.
