Is It Time to Install a Privacy Fence?

This is a question most homeowners are likely to ask themselves at one point or another; unless, of course, they live far enough away from a busy road, pesky neighbors or a commercial property—each of which we consider to be reasons why you should install a privacy fence. Join us below as we take a closer look at each of these factors:

Busy Road
Perhaps you deal with bright headlights shining through your windows at night when you try to sleep. Or maybe you notice people looking through your windows as they walk by. Either way, no matter what the case may be, living on a busy road can be a struggle.

However, installing a privacy fence on your property can help you better cope with some of the things affecting the comfort of your home. By contacting a fence contractor like Allstar Fence & Deck, a professional will help you determine the perfect height and style based on your concerns.

Pesky Neighbors
You don't necessarily have to like your neighbors, however, it's always best to build and keep respect for one another. But if you feel like one of your neighbors doesn't hold up their end of the bargain, it may be time to handle things on your own by installing a privacy fence.

Whether they host crowded parties, carelessly trespass, or let their dogs run free onto your property, an annoying neighbor can create a world of problems. Still, this is nothing a professional fence contractor can't help you resolve. After listening to your concerns and taking measurements, they'll begin the process of helping you enjoy a much more comfortable home life.  

Commercial Property
Living close to a commercial property presents its fair share of challenges as well. From office buildings, warehouses and hospitals to retail stores, hotels and even apartment complexes, these kinds of locations can put a serious damper on your privacy.

Not only are there a lot of vehicles, foot traffic and loud noises coming from places like this, but they also tend to be brightly lit. To reduce the impact of light pollution as well as the possibility of noise pollution, a fence contractor will consider all buildings within proximity to your home in order to provide the best solution possible.

Expressing your Creativity through your Fence


A fence around your home serves as a boundary. Not only does it keep people from trespassing and ruining your garden, it also serves to extend your home to the area surrounding it. It marks your front yard and back yard as a part of your home, thus extending that feeling of comfort and happiness that you get in a house that belongs to you and your family.

Expressing your Creativity

Since the front and back yards are extensions of the home, people like to put some effort into enclosing and beautifying them. By putting your own personal stamp into the land that belongs to you, as well as the fence surrounding it, you're expressing your creativity for everyone to see and enjoy. You can either go with a classic white picket fence or fences in a multitude of colors, depending on what appeals to you.

The Classic White Picket Fence


There's a reason why the white picket fence is always included in images of the perfect home. There's something fresh and clean about a white fence. It might be set up to keep intruders out but it never looks forbidding. Plus, a white fence pretty much goes with any color scheme you might have set up for your home.

Fences in Complementary Colors


It's not necessary to paint your entire fence one color. You can also play around with using two or more colors.
  • You could paint a fence blue and yellow. This gives a playful look to the yard, especially if you have a children's area in it.
  • A blue and white fence can give your yard a sophisticated look. It's a good choice if you have a neat yard with well-trimmed plants and boxes of flowers.
  • You can also paint your fence in the same colors as your house. For example, if your house is white with a brown roof, you can use the same colors in your fence.
Go for a Balanced Look

The above suggestions can get you started when it comes to painting your fence and enclosing your front and back yard. But there are literally hundreds of different combinations you could use. Just make sure that your yard doesn't end up looking too "busy" with too many colors or too dull because you haven't used enough colors. Try to go for a balanced look.
