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 keeping your property safe and attractive.
In addition to the aesthetic value a well-built, well-designed fence can provide, it can enhance your privacy and keep unwanted intruders away from your home. If you choose the right kind of fence for your property, you also can add resale value to your home.
However, there are so many materials and styles available, it can be difficult for the average homeowner to choose the type of fence that works best for the property and serves the homeowner’s needs.
You may need a fence to keep pets from running away or into the street, in which a simple chain-link fence may suit the purpose. If you’re simply concerned about making your property lines clear, a white picket fence is a good option. If you’re chiefly interested in protecting your privacy, consider planting a hedge wall.
A fence can do so much for your property, but only if you take the time to research your options. The following infographic contains some important things you should consider before adding a fence to your home.
