Fences for Every Pittsburgh Family
If you’re considering buying a fence for your yard, you may be confused by all the options that are available. From materials, to colors, to height, to board size and spacing, there’s a lot to think about. Here are some tips so that you know why you are choosing a fence in your yard:
- For security and privacy. Fencing is, first and foremost, important because it keeps your home, property, and family safe and secure. Chain link fencing will protect people from entering your yard and then your home. Similarly, privacy fences are often used by homeowners who are near roads or who live in neighborhoods with homes that are close together.
- For children. Fencing is often used to ensure that someone doesn’t get in, but it can also be used so that someone (namely, young children) can’t get out. Kids seem to find their way out of many things, and they’re curious, so having a fence can be an important part of making sure that they are where they’re supposed to be. Also, if you live near a main road, it’s important that your kids are secure. If you don’t want to degrade your view of the road, choose chain link. If you’d like to obscure drivers’ view of your home and yard, then pick a fence with boards that have tight spacing.
- For pets. You can custom order a fence that has a particular kind of spacing between the boards—3 inches for large dogs, or 1 inch spacing for small dogs and cats. Fences can be anywhere from 3 feet high, but can go as high as 6 feet and then be topped to prevent pets from jumping over them.
- For beauty. Ornamental fences add sophistication and elegance to homes and property. Whether the fencing surrounds a house, yard, garden, pool, or other area, it immediately raises your property value. These fences can be varying heights and made from different kinds of materials and colors. Choose a type of fence that complements your house or one that completes the exterior of a home. You can consider black, of course, but there’s also wood and bronze, as well as custom colors. Ornamental fences are perfect for commercial buildings, too.
