Contemporary Fencing Ideas in Aluminum, Vinyl, and Wood

When some people think of contemporary fencing ideas, they assume they’re going to be locked into a metal fence. While metal is definitely a popular modern style, it’s just the beginning of your options. In fact, all of the main fence materials (vinyl, aluminum, and wood) are represented here. See your contemporary fence options and get prices on each:


Vinyl Privacy Fences – Vinyl is versatile – boasting both beautiful traditional and modern fence options. Modern vinyl fences tend to be of the privacy style. They are built from elegantly simple modern fence panels that come in a solid color or a simple two-tone pattern that can play off your home’s vinyl siding. This fence is particularly effective when bringing an upscale resort feel to your pool.

Aluminum Yard Fences – Sleek, slim, and making a statement, there’s no question that aluminum fences belong on this list. While there are tons of ways to customize the rails and finials on an aluminum design, if you’re looking for a contemporary feel, you want a simple, no-frills approach. That means you’ll love a flat top rail and completely straight posts. If you want to make this a modern fence showstopper, get it in an interesting color like silver, textured bronze or speckled walnut. See even more aluminum fence colors!

Wooden Privacy Fences – We know what you’re thinking: how can one of the oldest building/fencing materials known to man ever be modern? While you’d be correct that rustic split rail fences are as traditional as they come, that’s just one type of wooden fence option. Our cedar privacy fences have a no-frills profile and are designed entirely with straight lines – which sounds pretty modern to us!
