When you first bought your property, your main worries probably consisted of all the mortgage payments, property taxes, water bills, electricity bills, and the list goes on. But after a few years of settling into your new home, you’ve gotten used to managing the finances and think it’s time to consider adding that fence you wanted from the beginning. When you picture the all American home, there’s probably a picket white fence. Now, given where you live, the picket white fence might just be your best option or your worst. Before you get started on your investment for a fence, here are a few things to consider.
Fences can be multi-functional. Your motivation to build one could be to increase the security of your property since the neighborhood dogs might think your lawn is the local washroom. You might want to build a fence to keep your pet from running into the street or to prevent someone from stealing your pet. Or simply, you want to add to your property value in the case that you might have to move away.
The purpose of your fence heavily impacts on the kind of fence you might consider. For added security, you may consider a tall wooden fence. To keep pets and children in for their safety, you can consider a chain-link fence just so your dog can see what’s going on in the street. Any type of fence will add some kind of value to your property which works in your favor.
The fence material depends on how well you keep your house. With all the extra time in the world to make sure the exterior of your house looks impeccable, you could go with the fancy wrought iron fencing. This fencing in all of its strength and beauty requires sanding or repainting every two to three years - who can remember to do that? If you want the fence with the least maintenance, you can choose vinyl fencing. It resists paint, maintenance free, is five times stronger and four times more flexible than other wood fences. It’s a little more costly than other materials, but it’s worth the investment.
