After your house, the fence is the first thing people see from the street and with spring fast approaching it might be time to fix up what might resemble that chicken pen you call a fence!
The fence around your home provides security, noise protection and it will help contain any pets safely inside your yard.
This week our Hubbies have put together a few great tips to help you decide what type of fence matches your needs.
Function is the first consideration when deciding on a fence. What is the purpose of your fence? If you’re looking for longevity and little maintenance, steer away from products like timber that will need painting or wrought iron that may rust over time. If you live near a highway, you may want to think of a heavy fence with height. The general rule with noise is the bigger and thicker the better.
Ideally a fence will have aesthetic appeal as well as function. Is your fence purely functional or do you want it to make a statement? If your home is modern, keep lines and finishes simple. Renders, aluminium and glass are great options. If your home is a classic style you may want to look at brick, timber or iron.
Have you ever installed a fence? It’s not simple. When it comes to installing, it might be best to leave it to a professional if you have little experience and aren’t sure what you’re doing. Measurements, levelling, setting posts are all things to consider as well as pipes and wires underground.
