5 Quick Advantages of Wooden Fences

If you’re thinking of installing a new fence, then you’ll want to read this before making your investment. All fences can be somewhat expensive when it comes to both the purchase and the installation of them, whether you opt for wrought iron, wood or even chain link.

Here’s what you need to know:

Advantages of Fences:

1. Privacy

You most likely don’t like the idea of the neighbours having free rein of vision over your garden. It’s far more enjoyable to eat dinner on the patio with privacy than feeling as though you are visible for all and sundry. Installing a 6ft high fence can give you the privacy that you crave.

2. Containment

Children and pets can be kept in the garden where you can see them. You won’t have to worry about other animals coming into your private space.

3. Security

Protect your family and your garden furniture and tools with a barrier that won’t be easy to cross.

4. Noise reduction

Some of our clients have 8-foot fences installed to protect them from the noise of passing traffic. Fence panels can be so effective that they can take between 6 and 10 decibels of noise off. This approach can also be applied to properties that are located next to railways.

5. Aesthetics

The overall appeal of a home can be added to with the addition of a well-constructed and attractive fence. Picket fences can be very pleasing to the eye, in particular during the summer months with pretty flowers climbing over them.

When it comes to disadvantages, there are few. Although you will need to perform some maintenance on fences, in general, they add far more than they will detract from any property. They provide security and privacy in addition to adding visual appeal and can even add to the value of your home.

Having invested both finance and energy into acquiring your new fence, you’ll want it to last as long as possible. Postsavers can help this happen by protecting your posts against rot and decay.
