Winter is here and it brings with it Christmas, family, and winter break. It also is a great time to fence in your property — whether it be your home, your business, or somewhere else winter is definitely a great time to fence up your place.
Seasonal Weather Effects
You don’t have to worry about killing your flowers or garden, considering winter itself has already taken care of your seasonal herbs and shrubs, so you can go ahead and fence away.
It’s not too hot for being outside — if you’re planning on putting the fence up yourself but even if you aren’t I’m sure whoever puts it up will thank you. Even when sweltering heat isn’t an issue, there’s still a lot that can go wrong, however. Preparing and installing a fence can be precise, hard work. If done well, a fence can last for decades, but an amateur job may end up costing you your fence and another block of time spent setting it up. Fortunately, Central Fence is an experienced, trustworthy company can will set you up with a fence for the ages.
Vacations Make For a Vulnerable House
Wintertime is famous for its many opportunities for getting out of the house and onto the road. School is out for winter break, and your relatives’ annual yuletide invitations are a thing to be expected. But for all this family gathering and the joy the comes with it, houses are left vulnerable to criminals who expect families to be missing during that time. Making the matters even worse, presents offer a high-value target for such delinquents. All it would take is a quick trip under the tree and like the Grinch, they’ve stolen Christmas.
An unguarded house might as well be a red target for break-ins. When staking a place out, they look for the house with the least obvious security. That means that houses without a fence to protect themselves will be first on the list of potential victims. It would be a simple matter for someone to sneak into the backyard of a vacant, unfenced house and pick the locks.
In many cases, it might not even look suspicious— if someone acts like they have a right to be there, oftentimes, neighbors don’t question it. Who’s to say it’s not their uncle coming to drop something off? Someone hopping a fence, on the other hand, is decidedly more suspicious, and much more difficult to do without getting caught, or at all. Fencing a house for the winter could shield you from having to tell your family there won’t be a Christmas that year.
