Installing a Fence
Having a fence installed seems like an obvious choice for many home and business owners. Fences add to a property’s value, and they can be installed in different materials and forms. If considering a fence for your yard, let our fence installation services experts assist you.
The Benefits of Having a Fence
A fence is more than an element of your property that looks nice—it truly serves a purpose.
When we talk to people about why they would like to install a fence, this is what they tell us.
- Safety and Privacy. Having a fence is important to keep your home, family, business and customers safe or secure. Fences keep people and pets on the inside of your property and prevent unwanted visitors—both human and animal—from coming in. A properly constructed fence will ensure that toddlers don’t wander off near the road or enter an area with a pool. It also allows pets to run around in your yard without being able to gain access to what’s beyond—whether it’s a neighbor’s property, a wooded area, or a busy street. If you own a business, a chain-link fence can be used to deter unauthorized visitors or prevent burglaries. A fence can also offer you privacy by blocking the view of your home or business from passersby or cars.
- Accident and Incident Prevention. You’re responsible for your property, and that includes keeping those who live there, and those who are visiting, safe. Fences can ensure that people who are outside of the fenced-in area are protected by an active pet that’s inside the fence. A fence will also help keep other pets out of your yard, where they could face potential harm from vehicles.
- Aesthetics. Fences offer more than protection and privacy. They’re used to create a particular look for a home, or to carry a theme from your home to your yard (such as cedar siding being paired with a split-rail fence). The right fence will raise your property value and add beauty to your front or back yard.
