Buying a fence – an introduction
A fence is more than a collection of posts and slats. It serves a number of important purposes related to the security and attractiveness of your property.
In addition to the aesthetic value that a well-built, well-designed fence can offer, it can improve your privacy and keep unwanted intruders away from your home. If you choose the right type of fence for your property, you can also add a resale value to your home.
However, there are so many materials and styles available that it can be difficult for the average homeowner to choose the type of fence that best suits the property and meets the needs of the homeowner.
You may need a fence to keep pets from running or walking on the street. A simple chain link fence may be suitable for this purpose. If you just want to clarify your property boundaries, a white picket fence is a great option. If you're primarily interested in protecting your privacy, plant a hedge wall.
A fence can do so much for your property, but only if you take the time to explore your options. The infographic below contains some important things to consider before adding a fence to your home.
