2. Cedar Fencing: Timeless Beauty

Cedar fencing, another premium offering from Draper Fencing Company, aligns perfectly with the natural resistance to decay and insects. This makes cedar an ideal choice for Indianapolis’ climate, where the wood’s inherent durability ensures it can withstand the city’s weather fluctuations. Beyond its durability, cedar offers a classic and timeless aesthetic. At Draper Fencing Company, we understand the value of customization. Our cedar fences can be stained or painted to match your preferred aesthetic, adding a touch of timeless beauty to your property.

3. Aluminum Fencing: Strength in Style

Aluminum fencing is almost completely resistant to weather related issues.. Its strength and style make it a compelling choice for certain situations. Draper Fencing Company recognizes the unique appeal of aluminum fencing and its ability to provide security without sacrificing aesthetics. However, it’s essential to note that aluminum fencing may require maintenance over the long term, such as rust prevention and repainting. When properly cared for, aluminum fences from Draper Fencing Company are a durable and stylish option for Indianapolis residents.

Choosing the Right Style for Your Needs

Draper Fencing Company understands that functionality and aesthetics go hand in hand when choosing a fence. Our range of styles caters to various preferences and needs.

Privacy Fences: Solid vinyl or cedar panels are excellent choices for those prioritizing privacy. These fences not only block out noise but also act as a windbreak during the cold winter months, ensuring your comfort year-round.

Picket Fences: For a more open and welcoming look, our picket fences offer charm and character. Constructed with weather-resistant materials like vinyl or cedar, these fences provide longevity without compromising on style.
