Some homeowners want a fence that matches the rest of the ones in their neighborhood, while other homeowners want to find ways to help their fence to stand out from the crowd. Here are some fun and simple ways to make your fence a unique part of your home.
Simply put, wood fences are absolutely beautiful! They are timeless and traditional and can complement a variety of home and landscaping styles. Choose a wood fence that suits the architecture of your home and that matches well with surrounding homes on your street. A classic wood fence will almost always boost your home’s resale value, but an imposing and rotting wood fence will definitely decrease it!
Fences serve many different purposes for you and they might serve other purposes for people looking to move into your home! Even if you don’t have kids or pets, consider making a fence that would protect them if you are looking to boost your home’s resale value. Families looking for a home will be much more likely to purchase yours due to the added safety and security.
What wood would you choose if you would choose a wood? Okay, that might be a silly way of putting it, but what wood do you want to build your fence out of? Each type of wood has different pros and cons that might make prospective homebuyers more or less attracted to it. Cedar fences are beautiful and bright when they are first installed, but they soon fade to a weathered gray color that people near the beach might love but people in the suburbs might not. Other types of wood can be stained or painted to achieve your desired look, but keep in mind that bright colors might not boost your home’s value as much as a classic neutral.
