While a fence is a great choice in almost any situation, there are some scenarios where a fence is all but completely necessary. Fences can keep people safe, prevent robberies, and more. Check out this list of four places where you should always have a fence.
Both above-ground and in-ground pools can benefit from a fence. A fence grants you privacy while you enjoy your pool– this is often especially important to homeowners who have young children. It also keeps wildlife from accidentally getting into the pool and causing damage to your liner. Most importantly, though, a fenced-in pool (especially an in-ground pool) is far safer. A sturdy fence will prevent small children from ending up in the pool without adult supervision.
Warehouses and other large facilities should have fences to protect their interests. All too often, these sorts of areas can become the targets of vandalism and robbery. A secure fence, complete with a locking gate, will keep out anyone who doesn’t belong in the area. This can help to keep costs low for your customers and will spare headaches for everyone down the line.
Construction sites are often required by law to set up temporary fencing for the length of the project. Even if you live in an area that doesn’t require it, if you’re doing a project you should install a fence. This will keep passersby from accidentally coming onto the site and ending up in a potentially dangerous situation. It will also protect your project from any vandalism that may occur in a high-visibility area.
Homes with Lots of Toys
If your family owns expensive outdoor toys like four-wheelers or a boat, it’s important to install a fence. Burglars often case out a location to rob by looking around and seeing which houses are most likely to contain valuables. Even if robbers can’t take your ATV or motorcycle, simply seeing those things sitting out may be enough to convince them that your home is a worthwhile target. Families that can afford items like these are likely to also have high-end electronics, valuable jewelry, and other things that are easier to steal. Setting up a fence helps keep you from becoming a victim of robbery, in two ways:
1. It keeps wandering eyes from seeing your property, and 2. It makes it more difficult to get onto your property.
