Precasts Concrete vs. Traditional Residential Fencing

Choosing a fencing system to place around your residential property can be a major decision for any property owner. With so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the right one. There is no doubt that precast concrete is the best option for residential fencing. At American Precast Concrete, we provide a variety of customization options, so you get the fence of your dreams.

Wood Fence

Wood is a classic fencing choice, especially in neighborhoods. Wooden fences provide a barrier between you and your neighbor and come in various styles to choose from.

However, they are highly susceptible to damage and can need constant repairs or replacement throughout the years. Over time, these maintenance costs can add up and wind up an expensive choice.

Metal Fence

Steel, and other similar materials, are a popular fencing option for homeowners who want to put up a fence that will require little maintenance and provide a sturdy barrier. They are usually easy to install and can be placed on uneven surfaces. However, if you are looking for a fence that will provide you with privacy, top security, and help block noise from the surrounding area, this type of fencing will fall short.

Precast concrete is a better fencing choice than wood or metal, as it provides the beauty and solid barrier you would get with the wood fencing – with none of the maintenance and all the benefits of a metal fence.

Precast Concrete vs. On-Site Concrete Residential Fencing

Concrete is the way to go when choosing residential fencing, but there is a big difference between site-cast and precast concrete.

Precast concrete is made in a controlled environment away from the project site. This means fewer delays, quick installation, and a more sustainable process.

Creating your precast concrete fencing panels off-site allows us to have more control over your final product’s quality and appearance. It is also more cost-effective and means less construction at your residence.

Benefits of Precast Concrete Fence for Residential Areas

Aesthetically Pleasing

Typically, when you think of concrete, you may think of industrial buildings and construction sites full of cold, gray concrete that is boring to look at.

Precast concrete will make you rethink everything you’ve ever thought about concrete. The last thing our precast concrete fences are is boring and drab.

At American Precast Concrete, we have a wide variety of products that will leave you with a gorgeous fence. We even produce products, like our Woodcrete, that provide the classic look of wood, without any downsides of a traditional wood fence and all the benefits of precast concrete.


Precast concrete fences and walls give you an easy, cost-effective way to gain more privacy for you and your family. Our precast walls are easy to install around your property and can be built as high as 14-feet, creating a solid barrier between your home or community and the surrounding area.

Having a solid barrier around your home that does not contain gaps means no one can see through the fence and peer into your home, and you can maintain your privacy.


Keeping your property and the people within it secure is a top priority, and there is no better fence to protect your property than a precast concrete security fence. Because these fences can be built high, and create a sturdy and robust barrier, nothing can get through.

Precast concrete fences are hard to get over or through. Plus, these fences also become a deterrent to would-be thieves, who typically try to steal things they can see. Fences from American Precast Concrete shield your property and the stuff within from being seen by anyone passing by.


Choosing precast concrete is a more sustainable way to build a concrete fence. The panels are created in a warehouse where the molds can be used for multiple jobs, so there is less waste during production.

Plus, because they last such a long time, you won’t need to waste materials having them replaced.

Noise Reduction

Residential areas can be full of noise, and a precast concrete wall can help reduce the noise you hear in your home. When something from the neighborhood makes noise, the sound waves travel through the air until they reach your house. Fencing that is thin or contains gaps allows the sound waves to pass through them easily. Precast concrete helps to stop these sound waves from reaching your home by creating a thick, solid barrier that deflects them instead.

Durable & Built to Last

Concrete is known for lasting an exceptionally long time, and for being incredibly durable. There isn’t much that can bring down a concrete wall. Products built by American Precast Concrete are built to withstand earthquakes, extreme weather, and water damage. And, because it is concrete and not another material like wood or metal, you don’t have to worry about damage caused by termites, pests, or rust.


Precast concrete is a more affordable way to build your fence. Because there is less waste involved due to the panels being manufactured in a controlled environment, and fewer complications are encountered during the process, precast concrete is cheaper to create. These savings are passed onto the customer, meaning it is more affordable to build a precast concrete fence than a site-cast fence.

The walls and fences built by American Precast Concrete are made to last for decades down the road, and this will save you time and money. The great thing about precast is once it is built, there is not much you need to do to maintain your new fence. This means fewer repairs throughout the years, and less money spent.

Time-Saving Construction

Because the only thing that happens on-site is the installation, the time spent constructing your fence is drastically reduced when compared to site-cast concrete. All work, aside from the installation process, takes place in our temperature-controlled warehouse away from the residence. On the other hand, site-cast concrete requires workers to be at your home throughout the entire process.

Traditional walls and fencing systems are prone to deterioration and damage.

While there are other materials available for your fencing needs, precast concrete products are your best bet in terms of resilience, longevity and appearance. Wood, vinyl and fiberglass are subject to damage and disintegration resultant of the sun or bad weather, but precast concrete materials are nearly impossible to ruin. Using precast concrete is a wise investment because you are guaranteed a product that not only lasts, but also looks amazing.


We understand the importance of visual appeal to your design.

Our one-step coloration system infuses concrete with the precise color specified. By utilizing a custom blending technique, we can achieve a variety of warm, rich tones that replicate the look, texture, and complexity of natural wood, brick, or organic stone.
