If you’re searching for ways to make your property more secure, consider adding a privacy screen to your wood fence.

If you’re searching for ways to make your property more secure and private, you may want to consider adding a privacy screen to your wood fence. This can help keep any prying eyes out and even acts as a deterrent against would-be criminals that may otherwise target your home.

Today, we want to review the basics of installing a privacy screen on your wood fence. This can do wonders in adding a touch of privacy and security to your property, so we know many people have questions about it. Let’s get into it.

Choose the Right Screen

There are loads of different options when it comes to finding a privacy screen for your wood fence, so you should find one that works with your fence just as well as it does your personal aesthetic. Many people use privacy screens made of willow, reeds, or bamboo, but it’s also possible to utilize panels, slats, or even netting depending on what your needs are. 

Remember to consider your budget, temporary vs. permanent installation, and how much privacy you really need when looking for a privacy screen. Panels and bamboo might offer you complete privacy, but for some people, that blocks out too much sunlight, so you may want to consider slats or netting instead. 

Attaching a Privacy Screen

In order to install your privacy screen, you’re going to need to first measure and cut your materials. If it comes in rolls, unroll it and use a saw to cut it. After it’s cut to size, you can attach them to your fence by screwing the panels into place with screws that are suitable for your fencing. If you’re not sure of what to use, check with a hardware store worker and explain your use case—they should be able to help. You can also consult the manufacturer’s instructions if they specify.

Using a Contractor

While installing a privacy screen on your wood fence isn’t the most difficult job in the world, it’s certainly much easier when you work with a contractor who has done the job enough times to know how to do it quickly and efficiently. By hiring a professional team to do the job, you can rest assured that everything will be done right and to your exact specifications. Additionally, hiring a pro means you don’t have to worry about any kinds of damages since a contractor will have a guarantee. If you’re not sure about doing this job yourself, don’t hesitate to reach out to Hercules Fence GSA.
