There’s no ‘one size fits all’ answer for this one. It depends on your circumstances. We suggest you identify your needs first. Here are some of the many reasons people buy fences.
Pool: If you have a pool, installing a fence is a legal requirement for safety reasons. In this case, obviously a new fence would be necessary and worth the cost to ensure safety and compliance with local regulations.
Existing fence fell over: It’s often the case that your old fence tells you when a new one is required. Of course, you have the option of just removing it, but chances are your eye is accustomed to seeing a fence there. The original reasons for installing it are likely still in force.
Neighbour problems: If you’re facing issues with neighbours, a new fence can go a long way towards alleviating the problems. A physical boundary can provide privacy and reduce potential conflicts. How much is it worth to take the day-to-day stress of this nature out of your life? Many folks say ‘Plenty.’
Privacy: It’s a very common reason to buy a fence, especially if you’ve had other work done (a deck, pool, or hot tub, for example) that you’re looking forward to enjoying.
Keeping the dog in: If you have a dog that needs containment, installing a fence can provide a safe and secure space for them to roam freely without the risk of running away or getting lost. It not only gives you peace of mind, but the neighbourhood as well.
Keeping toddlers in: If you have young children, a fence can create a secure environment for them to play and explore without the worry of them wandering off into potential danger. Fences and family go very well together.
Wind shield: If your property is an area that’s particularly exposed to the elements, a fence can tame them to a certain extent. We see it often in rural situations, where there aren’t neighbouring structures to break up the gusts from Mother Nature.
