Do you feel, every once in a while, upon arriving home at the end of a long day, that something naggingly unplaceable is just slightly… lacking in your residential aesthetic vibe? -Do you want to add substantial value to your property without breaking the bank in the process? If any manner of “affirmative” applies to either question, a picket fence might be exactly what you didn’t quite know you were looking for! Not only does a picket fence add to the beauty and charm of your home—it boasts practical features a-plenty!
Read along below to learn more about the ranging benefits of adding a picket fence to your home.
The Value Boost
One of the primary advantages of a picket fence is its inherent tendency to increase your house’s value. Homebuyers love a well-maintained picket fence that enhances the overall look of the property, tying everything perfectly together. Furthermore, it “advertises” a sense of privacy and security that potential homebuyers are surely looking for.
Reliable, Sturdy Demarcation
A picket fence also serves as an elegant, unobtrusive means for marking your property’s precise boundaries. When you hire a reputable fencing company, you can rest assured that your picket fence’s placement is in exact alignment with your property border (or otherwise to your specifications within)—and that the fence will be made of high-quality wood or vinyl ideal for withstanding natural elements. Professionals will also ensure your picket is installed both efficiently and effectively so it remains sturdy for years to come.
A Timeless Classic
Picket fences have a certain “evergreen” charm that just never goes out of style. While there may exist some notion of picket fences being anachronistic—a thing of the past—it is, in fact, that notion that’s outdated! -A skilled fencing professional can make your fence look modern and sleek while retaining that rustic, wholesome charm… customized to meet your ideal vision! For instance, you can choose unique color finishes for wooden slats or opt for vinyl in a wide range of available visual presentations that are both durable and stylish.
A Fence in Truth
Picket fences provide an added layer of security and privacy to your home. You can choose the height of the fence to match your security needs, but even a low picket fence will serve as a deterrent to potential intruders. At the same time, picket fences are also not as “insistently” intimidating as some other types of fences, so they can impressively manage the dual roles of providing protection against the unwelcome and a warm welcome to everyone else!
Great for the Little Ones!
Picket fences are a terrific option for families with young children and/or pets. The fence “creates” a secure, enclosed area for your smaller housemates to frolic—irrespective of leg count or preferred ambulatory method—without any need for supervisory worries about them wandering off. And naturally, picket fences can also keep other animals from entering your property, reducing the risk of critter-related accidents or damage.
