Chicagoland’s residents have a well-deserved reputation for being some of the friendliest people in America. Many neighborhoods consist of families that trust each other and spend time with one another and go to great lengths to avoid offending one another. If you identify with these sentiments and are worried that your desire to erect a cedar wood or vinyl fence on your property will rub your neighbors the wrong way, just remind yourself of the benefits that fence owners—neighborly and unneighborly as they may be—enjoy and your right to share in the spoils that they yield.
As far as home security is concerned, there are several burglar prevention measures professionals would recommend ahead of installing a fence. But when it comes to the safety of a home’s residents as well as residents of nearby homes, a fence is a must in many cases. If you have a pool, you should build a fence around it to protect curious little ones from walking or falling in unsupervised. Fences can also give pets the freedom to move while keeping them safe from wildlife and unable to run away.
Even if you like your neighbors, it is nice to know that you can step outside and enjoy your yard without being seen or approached for a casual conversation when a little privacy is all you are after. A wood, vinyl, or aluminum fence can afford you the freedom to step in and out of your private backyard as often as you would like.
As long as it is well-maintained and works with the design of your home, a fence can boost the first impression your home makes on passersby and on its real estate value. If this is one of your primary motivations for having a fence installed on your property, then you should choose a fence contractor who specializes in custom installations.
