What is the best type of fencing for families with young children?
March 12, 2018

Many families with young children choose to install a fence on their property for safety purposes, and with good reason! A fence can help provide security and peace of mind by keeping adventurous kids in, and potential dangers out.

The right fencing option for your family will depend on what exactly you are hoping to achieve.

First, you will likely want a fence that fully encloses your property, with a childproof gate. It is often best to consider a fencing option that a child could not climb over, under or in between.

If you’re looking for safety and privacy, consider a wood, vinyl or concrete fence with tight panels that are both tall and close to the ground. Due to the height and smooth surface, this type of fencing is difficult to climb over and can also be built without gaps for youngsters to sneak between.

There are some cases, however, when you may want to consider a chainlink or iron fence instead. It can be useful to have a fence that provides visibility, especially if it is guarding off a section of your yard that contains a pool.

When choosing the safest type of fence to install on your property to help protect your family, it’s always best to consult with a professional first. If you’re looking to install a fence in the Chilliwack area, contact us - we would be happy to help!
