A privacy fence has a ton of advantages ranging from safety and security to curb appeal and an increase in property value.
Security and safety are some of the most important things for a homeowner to keep in mind when picking a fence. A privacy fence is a great option because it keeps people from having a clear view of your yard and its belongings, as well as your family spending their time in the yard. If a burglar doesn’t know what you have in your yard or house, he or she probably won’t be as tempted to try to break in. The fence also acts as an extra barrier that the burglar would have to go through before being able to get into the house. If you have a garden or plants, the fence will keep Colorado animals like deer from eating them, too.
Security isn’t just about keeping out unwanted burglars and animals - it also can reduce the chances of any disagreements or problems with neighbors. Without a fence, there aren’t clear boundaries as to how much property is yours or theirs. This can be an issue when there are trees or shrubs that are sitting on the boundary or when either neighbor is encroaching on the others’ property, even if it is unintentional. Your fence contractor will be able to properly determine the boundary and the fence will keep that boundary in the future so you and your neighbor can live side by side and determine responsibility for plants easily, as well as avoid any conflicts that could have resulted from not knowing the boundary.
The fence keeps people out, but it also keeps animals and children in. It’s easy to keep track of children playing outside or animals who want to roam around when there is a boundary that they’re unable to get past. Keeping kids and pets confined helps to keep them safe; they can’t wander into the street where there are cars and they’re less likely to get kidnapped or stolen.
A privacy fence also can increase the curb appeal of the house which boosts the home’s property value and will make you feel good about where you live. The fence will hide anything sitting in your backyard, as well as yourself! Although it’s your property and you’re welcome to do what you want when on your property, like sunbathing or eating dinner, sometimes neighbors would prefer to not see everything happening in your yard. The privacy fence will keep your home looking nice and can attract buyers if you want to sell in the future.
