If you already have a fence, you know the valuable work it does on your property and around your home–keeping your family safe, securing your possessions, and limiting your liability while extending your privacy. If your fence is considerably old or falling, it is immediately obvious that you need to repair or replace it in order for it to continue doing this work. However, structural damage to a fence isn’t the only reason to consider a fence upgrade. Upgrading your fence requires removing the old one and installing a new fence, but it is worth it in the long run. Continue reading to identify several great reasons for upgrading your current fence to something new.
Age And Damage
Just because it isn’t the only reason to upgrade your fence doesn’t mean it isn’t one of the best. If your fence is old, has signs of damage from rot or insects, or needs work, you might be better off replacing it with an upgrade than simply repairing the broken parts. Of course, it depends on the extent of damage, but it also depends on other factors. If there is some damage, but it also checks one of these other category boxes, you’re going to replace it soon anyway. Don’t pay to repair it today if you’re going to have a contractor replace it in a season or two.
Aesthetics is another reason to upgrade your fence. The biggest is if the “good” side of the fence faces in instead of out. The clean side (without the visible support beams) should face out from the yard. If it doesn’t, the fence does not contribute to your home’s curb appeal. It’s also ideal for upgrading your fence when your home’s exterior has experienced a change in appearance, such as a new paint color, walkway, door, or windows.
If your fence no longer meets your needs, it is time to upgrade it. Perhaps your fence needs to be taller, needs to provide more privacy, or needs to contain a different area of your property. A fence upgrade is necessary to accomplish these tasks. You may also not have the time to have a fence that requires a lot of maintenance, and you need a different fencing material. If you have unique needs, you may even need a custom fence created just for you.
Generally, if your fence is not up to code, you need to have it replaced. The ordinances in your area could have changed, which typically allows you some leeway before you need to replace it, or the fence could have never been up to code. Either way, a new fence is eventually going to have to happen.
