Why Adding a Fence Is an Excellent Investment for Your Luxury Home
Posted by Garman Group on
Does your home have a fence? Fences add excellent curb appeal and make your home look even more luxurious than it already is. Plus, fences are a great addition to your property for many other reasons. So, if you don’t already have a fence — or you’d love to upgrade the one you currently have — here are some reasons why you should have a fence, as well as what type(s) of fencing to look for.
Fences Add Security
Your home should be your safe space, and fences add a level of security to your home by limiting access points to your property. And if you have a gate as well, then you get to control exactly who enters your property at any time.
It’s not just people you can keep out with a fence — animals and other unwanted critters won’t be able to wander into your yard and garden if you have a fence.
If your fence is mainly for security, you’ll need to make sure it’s tall enough so no one can simply climb over it. Often, wrought iron is used for security fencing, but you could also get creative with bricks, wooden fencing, or thick shrubbery.
Fences Add Privacy
We all want to feel comfortable while we’re in our homes, and yards and fences will help you accomplish that.
When you have a fence to add privacy, you’ll want a reasonably tall, wooden, thickly woven fence that no one can see through. Teak and redwood are great options for wooden fences with little to no knots or splits.
Fences Protect Against the Elements
Tall, thick fences with few gaps offer quite a bit of protection against harsh weather. Wind and high ocean waves will be blocked — at least somewhat — if you have a fence. This will help to protect your home and yard a great deal.
If you live where the elements are harsh, you’ll want a tall fence made of durable material such as steel, cast iron, or aluminum.
Fences Add a Great Esthetic Look to Your Yard
Fences not only make a luxurious home look even more luxurious, but they can also add to the overall esthetic of your yard. Matching your fence colours to your home’s accent colours can create a striking look, and having custom-designed latticework will add to the décor of your home and yard.
Since design is your goal here, you can choose any materials that you want.
Fences Add Value to Your Property
Since fencing improves the aesthetics of a home, added to the fact that most people are looking for security, privacy, esthetics, or a combination of those fencing can add incredible value to your property value.
No matter what type of fencing you choose for your home, ensure it is well-maintained to keep the luxurious look and feel.
