Whatever your unique circumstance is for needing or wanting a privacy fence, ordering panels and doing it yourself will give you the fence you hoped for.
The first thing people see when they arrive at a house is the outdoor space. The fence, gate, and driveway can make or break a house. If any of these components aren’t looking top-notch, it can deter buyers. You might be the buyer who is deterred by a dilapidated fence that gives little to no privacy. If that’s the case, there’s no need to worry. You can always update to aluminum fencing and an aluminum gate with a do-it-yourself project.
Aluminum fencing has many great qualities. From being extremely weather-resistant to needing little to no maintenance, choosing aluminum can fit most budgets and meet most of your “must-have” list. Aluminum is the top choice for driveway gates because the material is incredibly strong and stands up to a lot of use. To keep things fluid, it’s good to have a matching fence and driveway gate, using aluminum the whole way around the property.
Safety and security is on many people’s minds when it comes to the home. Any aluminum fence will be very safe and secure, but you also have options to increase your security and privacy. The most common way to do this is to purchase privacy panels for the fence. These panels leave little to no space between the pickets of the fence, allowing for more privacy in the yard and the home. Privacy panels are a great option when your house has ground floor windows that face a busy street or directly to a neighbor. The panels create an oasis in your yard for you and your family, with nobody able to peek in while strolling by.
Cookie cutter fences might not be an ideal situation for you. Thankfully, you can customize aluminum fencing to fit your needs. If you only need privacy on one side of your yard, just purchase the privacy panels for that side and regular picketed panels for the other sides. If you only need to block a certain portion of the yard from the view of passers-by, work out the measurements and just fence in that small area.
You also get to choose the color and finish of the fence panels to match with your garden, your home and your neighborhood. Decor-wise, you can add rings or finials to the top of the panels or even arches to give the fence some height and depth.
Quiet and serene
Privacy panels also help act like a sound barrier. If your fence is on a busy road or sidewalk, adding aluminum panels between your yard and the street can keep some noise out. Because less sound works its way in, that also means less sound is working its way out. That equals even more privacy for you when you are outside enjoying your yard.
While it might seem like you are closing in your property by putting up what looks essentially like an aluminum wall, it’s not really closing you in. An aluminum privacy fence is actually just blocking out people and views of other people’s homes and leaving just the sky and any landscape in the distance to be visible from the privacy of your property. You are left with a serene, tranquil and private area that is all your own.
