An exposed house can also put the people who live in it at risk. Strangers can watch children and adults in the house go about their daily routines. Criminals who kidnap children sometimes will stalk their next potential victim before they make their kidnapping attempt. An open house with no fencing around it will allow criminals to view children in and out of their home. They can also watch the adults in the house leaving women exposed to potential sexual crimes. Criminals may see that a female is alone through her backyard windows and then try to enter her home. Knowing how a fence provides security against kidnapping and sexual assault crimes is important for family safety. A barrier around a yard will also help to provide some privacy and protection for the owners of the home.
After you decide where to place the fence you need to pick a fence design you like. Since this series of articles is on wooden fencing I will tell you about common wood fence styles. The great thing about wood is the design is almost endless. Most fence contractors are also skilled carpenters and can help you design and build a fence that is unique to your tastes. With that being said there are common fence designs. Dog Ear Scalloped Arched or Half Moon Flat Top Shadow box Board on Board Spaced Picket and Trim Top are some of the most common fences we install. Some of the fence styles can mix such as an arched shadow box or a scalloped board on board. The easiest way to see pictures of these designs is to go to Google images and type in the fence style followed by the word fence.
Now that you know what the HOA will allow its time to plan the placement of your fence. Some HOAs require the fence to be on the property lines while others will let you place the fence in from the property line to allow for shrubs. The HOA will also tell you how far up the house you can come such as the rear corner 20 from the rear corner or to the front of the house. Decide what works best for you and meets HOA regulations. Gate placement is also an important factor in fence layout. I usually suggest two gates- one on each side of the house. I also suggest making one of those gates a double gate. A double gate allows to you to get larger items in your back yard such as a vehicle a shed a play set or anything else.
Apart from evaluating prices it is also best to determine the durability. There are some fencing materials that are expensive but are very durable. Meanwhile there are also cheaper fencing materials that are also durable. So it is best to inspect the quality of fencing materials before you purchase. Homeowners also need to keep in mind some other factors when choosing fencing materials such as the location of the property the size of property as well as the time needed to install fences. These factors are also important since knowing more about your location can help you choose the right fence for your home such as wood steel or perhaps chain links. Size also matters in order for you to determine your expenses during installation.
The search term may look like arched fence or shadow box fence. Take some time and look at the different styles. Also consider what your goal is. If you desire privacy you may not want a spaced picket fence. If you want some privacy but also want your neighbors to see in your back yard for security purposes you may want a shadow box. If you want to keep your dog in the yard but also want people to be able to see you have a dog perhaps a spaced picket would work well. Take the time to make sure the wooden fence you want will meet your needs and the fence that meets your needs is a fence you like. Once you know what you like its time to get estimates and select a contractor. Contractors can also help you in selecting a fence style and answer any questions you have. But thats another article and will be published soon.
