21st Century Curb Appeal


You can tell a lot about a person from the inside of someone’s home. You may discover they’re an art collector by the unique paintings brightening up the walls, or if organization is a key trait, what their favorite colors are, as well as style preferences.

Homeowners can also show their taste off before a visitor even gets through the front door – through landscaping, door color and outside finishes.

But curb appeal is enhanced the most with the right fence, and CertainTeed provides an industry-leading array of fence styles and color combinations to ensure the homeowners’ true personality shines throughout their property footprint.

Homeowners are spending more than ever to put their unique ‘stamp’ on their outdoor living spaces. And if they’re making the investment, they want to make it their own.

Here are six unique fence options and accessories that are sure to impress:

1. Decorate with trim

Who said fences have to be plain? Suggest the Bufftech® Chesterfield Smooth Fence with Lattice Accent. This slight detail allows for a privacy fence with an added splash of character – and more privacy! Or dress it up in a transitional look with authentic wood grain texture that complements most every style home – Chesterfield CertaGrain® with Decorative Victorian Accent. There’s a reason this style has been around for ages – it goes with everything.

2. Convert to concave or convex

Sometimes all a fence needs is a little movement to get the eyes flowing. Consider a concave or convex fence to add a unique design trend to a bland green space. Chesterfield with CertaGrain takes center stage again in multiple colors for panels and gates that make perimeters pop.

3. Experiment with the look of stone or stucco fence

There’s nothing better than fence that mimics a home exterior’s beautiful stone or stucco but without all the hard work or maintenance. Choose from our easy-to-install, long-lasting EcoStone® rotationally-molded polyethylene fence for the look of stacked architectural ledgestone, or Chesterfield CertaStucco™ styling in an easy-care vinyl design in natural, complementary colors. These options resemble the real thing but are fade-resistant, manufactured to withstand extreme weather conditions and will not crumble, peel or chip for decades to come.

4. Change up the post caps

Add decorative caps to add the perfect finishing touch to your fence

Choosing the right post caps can add that perfect finishing touch. Bufftech decorative post caps and solar lighting go from basic white to metallic with a long-lasting, weather-resistant PVC base. Solar post caps include eco-friendly LED lights for affordable but elegant, custom accent lighting that combines nighttime ambience and safety. Classic styles of PVC post caps such as gothic, ball or contemporary flat are also available.

5. Experiment with colors

Did you know CertainTeed fence comes in more than 30 24 different colors and six textures? Select from woodgrain, stucco, stone, or smooth finishes and solid or variegated colors to flawlessly capture the right look for every home. With fade-resistant UV inhibitors and ColorLast® dark color fade protection, color is also guaranteed to last for many years to come.

6. Add an arbor

An arbor can be a tasteful focal point of a yard or outdoor space

An arbor can be a tasteful focal point. Consider adding one, like the Beaumont Arbor, to your client’s lawn or garden for extra flair.
