In a busy world where privacy is at a premium, many people are choosing to install fencing to obtain a bit of privacy from neighbors and the outside world. It’s important to understand that there are a variety of materials that can be utilized to create a privacy fence.

In many instances, the term “privacy fence” simply refers to the ability to see through the fence or over it. Privacy fencing typically has solid panels or boards that are placed close enough together that people can’t see between them. Panels or board aren’t limited to vertical installation. They can be erected in stylish, decorative, horizontal designs.

Most people immediately envision an imposing iron or aluminum fence when they think about their privacy needs. There are multiple decorative fencing materials that can be utilized to create an oasis of privacy, safe away from prying eyes to enjoy time with family and friends.


Stockade fencing consists of boards that can be placed so closely together that no one can see in. Boards can also be placed in an off-set, alternating pattern that blocks straight-on views. Some wood fencing can be customized in various ways. The disadvantage is that the “pretty” side of the fencing will be facing outward and the view from inside isn’t as appealing.

It’s efficient, but will require a considerable amount of maintenance as wood attracts insects and absorbs water, increasing the risk for rot, mold, mildew, and splitting. Painting or staining is required to keep it looking good and not weathered. Even pressure treated lumber will eventually experience problems.


The solid panels require little in the way of maintenance other than an occasional pressure wash. It’s available in a wide range of colors, basic PVC styles, and numerous customization options are available for a personal touch. It won’t need staining, painting, and the solid panels last for many years.


The modern material can be crafted to emulate the look of stone or wood and it’s almost maintenance free. The solid panels only require a rinse with a hose or a power washer. SimTek® can be customized in a variety of ways and it’s as appealing on the inside as the exterior.
