Since wood privacy fences are made from an organic material, they are a natural solution to creating a border around your property that is both secure and attractive. If done properly the fence will enhance the value of the home or business by thousands of dollars.

The open exposure to weather and animals, however, can quickly wear away the value of the fence.

With a few steps you can preserve your investment and keep your fence looking like the day it was installed.


  1. Make simple repairs - Extend the longevity and function of the fence by using waterproof glue to repair split boards. Clamp or tape together for 24 hours. Use weather-resistant screws to reattach loose boards.
  2. Clean the fence - Use a garden hose to spray down both sides of the fence. If the paint or stain on the fence is peeling or faded, a high-pressure hose will spray off these unfinished areas and a new paint or stain should be applied once dry.
  3. Seal exposed areas - The base of the fence is most susceptible to rot since it is closest to the ground. Use a clean paint brush and seal with wood preservative.


A general inspection of the fence should be performed regularly, and especially after severe weather. Depending on how hot the summer sun is and how much freezing precipitation there is in the winter, a wood fence should be repainted or restrained every 3-5 years. Spending a few hours each season to repair, clean and seal your wood privacy fence can keep it looking good for many more years.

Having a yard without a fence is like having a window without drapes, and if you don’t have drapes on your windows, you should certainly consider installing a privacy fence.

Most new construction neighborhoods are built with uniform lots and a young tree or two planted. Do you wait 20 years for the tree to grow large enough to create some separation between you and your neighbors?

The most common reason to have a privacy fence installed is to give kids and pets a secure place to play. Not only does a fence keep them from running out into the street, it also keeps other people and animals from crossing into your yard.

Even if you don’t have kids or pets, installing a privacy fence can improve the quality of your life and home.

Value

There are a number of fence designs that will add to the resale value of your home. A wood fence, vinyl fencing and even a white picket fence create an attractive border along your property that also reduces cross winds and helps to protect your landscaping.

Privacy

There are several types of fences that will shield your curious neighbor’s eyes from peering into your yard. A privacy fence will also buffer noise between your yard and theirs. With a customized privacy fence, you get a commonly accepted wall between you and the too-close-for-comfort neighbor, so you can both enjoy the some privacy in the outdoors.

Shelter

Not only do you want to keep the animals you claim as your own contained, you also want to protect your family from other critters invading your yard. Deer, raccoon, rabbits and the roaming neighborhood dog or cat may look cute, but they can destroy your lawn, landscaping and property. If your property is open season for their exploration, chances are they will come back again and again.

Safety

Beyond the general safety considerations of every day life, building a fence can have specific purpose to safeguard a feature of the property. Building a fence around a pool is nearly a necessity to prevent wandering creatures and children from being drawn to the water. Installing a chain link fence or a wrought iron fence around a garden area is also common.

Security

Common crimes of theft and trespassing are often random acts sparked by opportunity. It’s best to observe the idiom, out of sight, out of mind. With your personal items safely secured a fence it is less likely that a stranger will cross your property line.

Installing a fence is an asset for your property and the well-being of your family. With the variety of fence designs and labor involved in fence installation, it is worth investing in a quality product that will be low maintenance and long lasting.

Does building a fence add value to your home?

When it comes to home renovations, you ultimately choose updates that make you happy and add value to the property. Some choices, like paint colors and light fixtures, alter the cosmetic appeal of the home, but don’t really impact the value of the home.

Permanent structures, such as a fence, will have a strong impact on the look and the value of your home. Customized fencing solutions add curb appeal and practical value to your home.

Choosing a fence is part personality and part purpose. It’s important to consider the types of fences featured on neighboring houses. If you live in a neighborhood or subdivision, check into the covenant’s regulations about the height, material and distance from the property line for the fence.

If you have pets or kids, the fence design is important for security and safety. A wrought iron fence or white picket fence along the front and side property lines creates an attractive barrier so they don’t run out into the street.

A customized privacy fence with a scalloped top can create privacy and security without feeling boxed in. You can add brick pillars or cap-and-trim to a wood fence for a finished, regal appearance. Wood fencing built with eastern cedar or yellow pine will have a long-lasting, natural look if stained and sealed properly.

You may want to consider low-maintenance vinyl so there is no need to stain and seal a wooden fence.

When you build a privacy fence that complements your home, the impact is apparent and will elevate your property’s value.
