If you have a fence in your yard, you likely don't think about upgrading or improving upon the fencing structure anytime soon. However, there are many reasons why you might want to consider a fence upgrade on your property, and your fence company can help you out by installing a new fence or upgrading your gates as needed.
A fence is an asset to your property that can add value to your home and make you feel safer, all while giving you more privacy and curb appeal. You can't go wrong with a new fence if you're ready for an upgrade, so use this guide to help you decide if you need a new fence or not.
Your fence is old
How old is your fence? Is your chain link fence starting to bend and wear out, with swinging, loose gates or uneven chain link? Are you worried about your old and worn wooden fence that is leaning and showing signs of splintering and warping? What about your ornamental fence that is showing signs of rust or has been weathered down over the years?
An old fence can easily be replaced by the same type of fence in a more alluring design, or you can have a whole new type of fence put in your yard. If you want to save time and money on the fence installation, you can take down your old fence and have your fence company take the old fence away for you. Or, you can have your fence company do all the work for you so all you have to do is pick a new fence material.
Your fence is unable to meet your needs
Is your fence pretty but doesn't do anything to keep your pets or children in your yard because it's too short? Does your fence go alongside your property but doesn't fully surround your land, leaving much of your property exposed to trespassers? Do you want a privacy fence, but the one you have is chain link and not solid vinyl or wood panels like you'd prefer?
If your current fence doesn't meet your needs, you can have your fence company add to it so it provides more useful appeal to you, or they can replace the fence with a better one that meets your needs best. Before working in your yard, your fence contractor will give you a few quotes for their services. Schedule routine fence maintenance with your fence company after installation is done so you can keep your fence in great condition, longer.
I have loved cats ever since I was a child. My parents let our cat roam around the yard without a fence when I was a child, but when I adopted my first cat as an adult, I was much too afraid that she would run off to let her outside. After keeping her as an "indoor cat" for a few years, I decided to look into backyard fencing options that she might not be able to climb or jump over. I put a lot of research into those options, so I decided to start sharing what I learned on a blog to help other cat owners and anyone else who is looking for a fence for a specific need. I have been very lucky and my cat hasn't jumped over my fence at all and she now loves her fenced in back yard!
