Fences serve a variety of purposes, one of the most important being security and privacy.
There are various types of fences that serve the purpose of security and privacy. Chain Link fences are a popular option and tend to be the most economical — you can even add privacy slats to increase the security, privacy and appearance. On the other end of the spectrum you have concrete fences, which are the most expensive, but provide better soundproofing and tend to be more aesthetically pleasing.
After you have chosen the kind of fence you want, you will need to think about the post diameter that will support the fence. Choosing a durable post diameter will ensure the longevity of the fence. For optimal results, we suggest picking a post that is taller and thicker than any of the fence materials. The distance between the posts will depend on the size of post required.
To go the extra mile, you can always add a lock to your fence. Some may think adding a lock to your home fence is overkill, but we don’t think so — we always like to say “better safe than sorry”, this especially applies when talking about your home. Adding a simple lock will help keep unwanted things and people out of your home, but will also assist with keeping children and pets inside your home.
For many, you will have the freedom to choose the type of fence you desire, but if you have a pool on your property, there are specific rules and regulations you need to follow. For instance, the pool must be fully enclosed by a fence that is a minimum of four feet high with a self–closing and locking latch. Fencing regulations for pools vary depending on the city you reside in, so it’s always best to check your city website for clarification.
There is a lot to think about when choosing the perfect fence for your home, which is why we have curated a list of blogs to help you through your questions and concerns around privacy and security.
