Reasons to Consider Fencing Your Yard

An open, airy front and backyard may elicit feelings of prairie cottages and simpler times, but the truth is that a fence can add privacy, security, and even value to your home. In order to obtain these benefits, you must first work with an experienced fence contractor who can recommend the highest quality fencing materials. If you are still on the fence (no pun intended), consider the benefits you will enjoy once your new fence is installed.

Add Security

First and foremost, a new fence will add greatly to your home’s security. Not only will a quality fence keep intruders and unwanted guests out of your property, but it will also keep pets and small children from wandering out when your attention is momentarily elsewhere. Wrought iron and wood fences offer the most security, though any fence is better than nothing.

Increase Privacy

If you want to enjoy sunbathing in your backyard or watching a movie in your living room without worrying about who is watching you, contact a fence company to inquire about building a fence around your home. Privacy fences can block out nosy neighbors and inquisitive passerby. For added security, you can add thick bushes in front of your fence or even plant climbing vines around the base of your new fence.

Up Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Even if you aren’t thinking about selling your home anytime soon, you should always look for ways to increase your home’s curb appeal. A new wood fence is one of the easiest ways to make your home pop. A quality fence that was installed by a reputable fence company can also add value to your home.

Contact your local fence contractor to learn more about the benefits of fencing your yard and to find out how much it will cost for a new wood or iron fence.

Summer Safety Tips: Pool Fencing

Your swimming pool is a haven from the hot summer days. You should be able to enjoy owning a swimming pool without worrying about your child’s safety. One of the best ways to prevent a tragic accident is to install pool fencing around your swimming pool. Make sure the fence is at least five feet tall and impossible for children to climb. A self-closing and self-latching gate is an essential component of any effective pool fence. Once the fence is installed, remove any furniture or landscaping items that can be used to help climb over the pool fence.

Wood fences add beauty to any property. Unfortunately, time and the elements can take their toll on wood fences. Eventually you will need to replace damaged fence pickets.

If your fence maintenance requires replacing more than a couple of boards, it’s best to hire a fence repair company to restore your fence for you.
