Standard Fence Height: Vinyl and Aluminum

Before you make any large purchase or decision, you do your research. You read reviews, you check online, and you double-check with a friend. Buying a luxury fence definitely qualifies as a large and important purchase – and that’s why you’re researching standard fence height to make sure you get it right.

At Smucker Fencing, we’re the fencing experts to trust on this subject. With more than 10 years installing a wide variety of deluxe fences, we can help you find the right height fence for your specific backyard needs.

Most Common Fence Heights

The fence height for a pool

While some fence styles and designs do dictate a specific height, generally you’ll know how tall of a fence you need by the job you need the fence to do. See some of examples and the standard fence height that goes with each:

Front Yard Fence – The height you choose depends on the style of your front yard, but 3 feet is the shortest common height and 6 feet is the tallest common height.

Pool Fence – Minimum of 4 feet by law. Learn about pool fence regulations and see some popular pool fence styles.

Backyard Fence –  Again, this depends on your specific yard, but for non-privacy backyard fences, the most common heights range from 5 feet to 6 feet.

Privacy Fence – Anywhere from 6 feet to 8 feet.

Dog Fence – Deciding on the perfect size dog fence can be a bit of challenge.  You’ll want to take into account the size, strength, and temperament of your dog. Learn how to find the right pet fence.  

Right now, the two most popular fences on the market are vinyl and aluminum. These fences earn praise from homeowners for their distinct modern styles and the ease of owning them. Unlike wood, vinyl and aluminum fences will don’t require regular repainting or re-staining. In fact, these fences can last a lifetime without looking worse for wear.


 Aluminum Fence Heights

The available heights make these aluminum fences ideal for front yards, backyards, and pools. However, the relatively short height and open look makes them less than ideal privacy fences.

The wide range of vinyl fence heights and styles means that these fences can serve practically any purpose you need. From short and open front yard fences to grand backyard fences, vinyl has something for everyone. In addition, vinyl fences make the best privacy fences as their tall height and full privacy panels completely block your neighbors’ view.
