Choosing your Family Fence


If you have a family that includes a few children and some pets, there are several components that are sure to be found at your home. There will probably be a fridge full of food, a yard full of toys, and a home full of love. However, there are some components that would benefit your family but might be missing from your home; one component being a family fence. Before you begin the process of choosing your new family fence, be sure to ask yourself the following questions!

Do my neighbors have fences?

The type of fence material you choose along with the style of fence may be determined by considering the other fences in the neighborhood. If your neighbor has a chain link fence, you may not want to install an iron or aluminum fence. You also want to be aware of any rules about fences in place by your neighborhood home owners association, if you have one.

Are we living near a main road?

If you have a lot of civilians walking past your home on a regular basis, you may want to consider a fence that helps with security and privacy. This means that crime will be deterred, your children and pets will be unable to leave, and wildlife and strangers won’t be able to enter. Fences that are great for privacy and security include wood, aluminum, and iron.

Do we currently, or will we in the future, have a pool?

If your family already has or is considering an in ground pool, a pool family fence will be a must. Not only do most states require some sort of pool fence, safety can be a major issue, especially with smaller children. A vinyl or chain link fence is a great way to protect your family from an accidental fall without obstructing your view of the family pool. A gate is also helpful when it comes to pool safety.
