Designing your backyard comes with a lot of potential choices. You can choose what patio furniture to have, how large of a garden to have, how to decorate the yard and so much more. However, one of the single most important choices should actually be what type of fence you want to have border your yard. The fence will signify where your property and yard starts and finishes, in most cases.
While there are many options, one of the most popular is a privacy fence. A privacy fence is exactly what you would expect, a fence that provides the greatest amount of privacy possible. These fences won’t have any gaps or holes for people or animals to look through, and can also be taller than traditional fencing, providing you more seclusion and privacy. This can be great for when you’re having gatherings with friends and family without disturbing others or being disturbed yourself. It can also mean your children or pets can play safely in the yard and will keep unwanted strangers away.
However, in addition to better privacy from neighbors and curious onlookers, there are many other benefits to going with private fence. We’ll take a look at a few of them now.
Especially living in Canada, high winds and inclement weather can rear their ugly heads at any time. Thankfully, a strong and sturdy privacy fence can protect you, your yard and your garden from the weather. If large enough, and depending on positioning, they might also be able to act as shade from the sun at certain times of the day.
While it would be nice if crime wasn’t a thing, that’s not the world we live in. In addition to keeping people from seeing into your yard, high privacy fence can keep people from entering your yard. While there is no way to guarantee all potential dangers are kept off your property and out of your yard, a privacy fence can be a helpful layer of protection. Because of their security benefits, having a privacy fence can also lower your home insurance rates, as well.
Another benefit of privacy fences are their looks. They can be designed in many different ways to satisfy any taste. A nice, new and good looking fence can also add a lot of curb appeal to the home. Not only will you enjoy how the fence looks, but so will the potential next owner of your home. A large, sturdy and secure privacy fence is a good selling point of a home and will certainly add more value to your home.
As you’re probably aware, fences can be made out of a wide variety of different materials. While wood is a common choice, it can often require a lot of maintenance. It often needs to be stained, sealed and painted to give it the look you want. Not only that, but it can also easily rot, split or chip.
Metal is also often used in fences, but isn’t free from its own drawbacks as well. Many types of metal fences can rust and that not only looks terrible, but can also hurt the integrity of the fence as well. Because of these reasons (and many others), many people are going with vinyl for their material of choice when building or designing a fence.
Sure, creating a privacy fence out of vinyl is often more expensive up front than wood or certain types of metal, but may actually be quite a bit cheaper in the long run. This is because vinyl fences are famous for being very low maintenance. Once the fence is built, it shouldn’t require much maintenance at all. You won’t need to paint it, stain it, seal it or prime it. The color will not fade, termites and other bugs won’t be an issue and the material will not rot or crack. The only type of maintenance you should ever need to do with your vinyl privacy fence is cleaning it every once in a while with some soap and water to keep it looking its best.
As a result, you will save a lot of money throughout the lifetime of your fence as you won’t need to maintain it nearly as often, and it may last longer. In addition to the low-maintenance aspect of vinyl, it has many other benefits including:
