Fences are one of the best investments you can make in your property. They add to the overall value of your home, increase curb appeal, and can also help give you more privacy and security. If you are unsure what type of residential fencing you want to choose for your fence installation, here are some things you should know about privacy fences.
How Are Privacy Fences Difference?
Privacy fences differ from other types of residential fencing because they are specifically designed to create a barrier between you and the outside world. As a result, these fences are taller than traditional fences, made of solid materials instead of partially transparent ones, like chain link, and installed in a manner that helps increase your privacy.
What Materials Are Good for Privacy Fencing?
When you think about privacy fences for your fence installation, one of the biggest considerations you will have to make is the type of material. Wood is the most popular choice for privacy fencing, but you can also explore vinyl fencing, pressure-treated wood, and even bamboo fencing. We can help you review your options to make the perfect choice for your residential fencing project. When choosing a material, you should also think about the maintenance requirements, as wood is fairly high maintenance, while vinyl fencing can last for multiple decades without the need for much more than an occasional hosing off.
Can You Turn a Fence Into a Privacy Fence?
Some homeowners may already have a wood fence but want to turn it into a privacy fence. Depending on your current residential fencing, this might be a possibility. We can assess your existing fence to determine whether or not adding material to increase the height would be a potential solution. It is critical to check with your HOA and local authorities to ensure that you do not go over the maximum height for fencing in your area.
