Seculsion – If you have a pool or hot tub, a privacy fence will help you enjoy your backyard without having to worry about who might be watching. Even if you don’t have a pool or hot tub, it is relaxing to have a secluded place where you can be alone.
Deterrent – A solid privacy fence raises the difficulty of property entry just enough so that thieves and vandals will probably look for an easier target. It also hides your possessions which may prevent criminals from scoping out your property.
Protection – A privacy fence helps you keep children and pets safely in your backyard. Privacy fences are typically taller than chain link and are made out of smooth wood, which does not offer paw or handholds like a chain link, this prevent scaling and climbing.
Property Values – When built by a professional, and maintained correctly, a fence will raise the value of your home. Privacy fences tend to raise the value more than other fence types because they are built of quality wood and are tightly constructed to provide an eye-catching, sophisticated look to your home.
