If your house is situated in an agglomerated area and your fence must serve as a noise barrier, you must select a solid design. A fence intended to serve as a sound barrier has to be thicker and taller than regular fences. Some materials are also more efficient sound insulators than others, therefore you should opt for mass loaded vinyl, heavy wood, metal or concrete to construct such a fence.
A mass loaded vinyl soundproof fence is made of thick and heavy vinyl sheets with metal particles. The efficiency of this material is great in blocking external noise. A MLV fence is also weather resistant and very durable.
Heavy wood fences can also reflect noise if they are solid and compact. Cedar and redwood are the best options to be taken into account when planning the construction of a sound proof wood fence.
A heavy corrugated metal fence is another great option if you want your fence to serve as noise barrier. Such a fence can be made entirely from corrugated metal sheets, or these sheets can be added to normal fences to make them sound proof.
Solid concrete fences can also block external noise. Concrete is probably the most used building material and it is a good and cost effective choice to isolate your property.
