High-security fences help homeowners to feel, well, more secure. A common misconception is that any fence is better than no fence. However, you indeed want to take some thought about your fencing options. Some fencing options are better than others, especially if you want to feel safer in your home. Here are some helpful guidelines for picking the best high-security fence for your home.
Pick a Fence That Doesn’t Provide a Hiding Place
As you consider the high-security fence that’s best for you, try one that is see-through, where it’s easy to see people on the other side of it. Metal perimeter fences are easy for homeowners to see through.
Anti-Climb Fences Keep Harm Away
If you want a fence that’s difficult to climb over, make sure that it is at least six feet tall. For maximum security, go for eight inches. If you want to have a tall fence installed, make sure to check your HOA policy first. Another tip includes staying away from horizontal rails as they can give a trespasser a leg up and easier accessibility. Fences with spear tops are helpful as well as anti-climb spikes and razor wires.
High-Quality, High-Security Fences are Hard to Bypass
If someone can go around your fence, under it, or cut through it, then it’s not the best option. Concrete should secure the ground to ensure that this does not happen. Concrete footings are an option. For a less expensive option, at least make sure that your posts are secure in concrete. Gates are another option to keep your home secure. We have experience in installing automatic gates.
What are the Best Security Fences That Meet All of These Requirements?
Metal security fences and wire fence meshing are two excellent options if security is the name of the game. Metal security fences are stylish and low-maintenance. Wire fence meshing has all of the benefits of chain link fences, but they aren’t easy to cut or climb.
Also, if a tall fence is not feasible because your HOA policy restricts it, short fences can still improve a home’s security. While not impossible, it still takes effort to hop over a fence. Also, just the presence of a fence can discourage someone from disturbing you and your home.
