Top Three Reasons to Install Security Fencing
Now that the mercury in thermometers all over Austin, Round Rock and San Marcos has finally taken a dip to comfortable levels, it is a great time to tackle some of those outdoor home improvement projects. Before you invest a lot of money in a gourmet outdoor kitchen or a deck built for entertaining, it is a good idea to install a security fence. Here are three reasons why it should be your first priority.
- Protect your investments: The installation of privacy fencing keeps everything in your yard out of sight from would-be thieves. Patio furniture and expensive BBQ grills can easily be loaded in the back of a truck and have become some of the most popular items for theft. You can further increase the safety of your yard by installing locking gates. The right type of security fence also prevents stray animals from getting into your outdoor living space and damaging cushions or digging up landscaping features.
- Decrease your insurance premiums: Municipalities typically require fencing of a certain height to be installed around residential pools. Upgrading to security fencing often yields annual savings in the double digits on homeowner’s insurance, as most insurance companies offer discounted rates. The exact amount depends on the carrier issuing your policy.
- Increase the value of your home: Sport courts, brick ovens and other outdoor improvements are very taste-specific. They don’t always add value to your home, and, if you plan to sell your home in the near future, don’t appeal to all buyers. Privacy fencing is a universally pleasing improvement with a solid return on your investment.
