How Does a Fence Protect Your Property?
A well built fence is a necessity for homeowners who place a high value on privacy and security. Whether you realize it or not, your fence is working 24/7 to protect your home from a variety of threats that you may not have even considered. Let’s talk about all the ways your fence is keeping you and your property safe.
A fence is a physical barrier between your property and the outside world. If a burglar walks by two neighboring homes and one has a fence but they can walk straight up to the windows on the other, it seems like an obvious choice. Not only is it physically harder to get in and out of the property (especially with a locked gate), they also can’t see into windows or doors to scope out your property.
One thing that no one likes to think about is someone being harmed on their property. However, if a neighbor kid wants to meet your dog they may wander right into your open yard. At that point, anything could happen. Your dog may be in a bad mood and snap at the “intruder”, they could twist their ankle, or even step on a nail leaving them in pain and you open to being sued. Be proactive and protect your yard before there’s even a chance of anything happening!
Having a clearly (and correctly) marked property line can save you a ton of hassle in the long run. With a fence, your neighbors will clearly see where their property ends and yours begins. Avoid having their landscaping creep onto your property, their pets using your yard as a restroom, and any other unintended encroachment.
While we all love animals, we don’t necessarily want them on our property if they don’t belong to us. This is especially true in Colorado if you live in or near the mountains. Mountain lions, bears, deer, and raccoons can wreak havoc on your yard and put your family and pets in serious danger. A fence is an easy, cost effective way to avoid the problem.
Noise and Light Pollution
Every city dweller (especially in Denver) knows how annoying it is to be woken up at 3am by headlights and the sound of rushing cars. In this situation, we often recommend a Board on Board Cedar Privacy Fence. Think of it as a privacy fence on steroids. The boards are strategically spaced and placed on top of one another so that the fence doesn’t allow any light through the pickets. The Board on Board fence also acts as a barrier to much of the sound from the street that is directed right at your home.
A well built fence can protect your home, family, and pets from the outside world. If you’re ready to take the next step in protecting your home today, give us a call at 720.458.4127 or visit www.FirstRateFence.com to schedule your FREE site check and estimate.
