Being a Good Neighbor with Privacy Fencing

Rightfully so, many people take the time to consider how their neighbors will feel about installing a brand new wood or aluminum fence.  Is it truly rude to add a privacy fence for the security of your kids, personal privacy, and the betterment of your property?  The answer is, of course not.  In fact, good neighbors add privacy fences. 

Oh My!

Here are a few of the reasons a privacy fence is a part of being a great neighbor.


1. Privacy- Just as you wouldn't shower with the bathroom window open, there is no reason to expose everything that goes on in your backyard.  Now, if you have friends over, then you be putting shuffling movement in your neighbor’s peripheral vision any longer.  It will be in the privacy of your own backyard and if you wish to invite them over, then you’ll always have that option!


2. Security- Privacy fencing improves the security of your home because it helps to limit access to your property.  No burglar will be able to pass through a tough wrought iron fence. Some of the same security benefits are beneficial to your neighbor, given the fact you share a property line.  Potential criminals will be aware of the fact that people in your area are serious about security, and they’ll never know what kind of systems lay within your neighbor’s home.  


3. Resale Value- Curb appeal always improves resale value and that's exactly what privacy fencing will do for your home.  Remember, security and privacy are commodities that are beneficial and profitable to the entire neighborhood—especially when it's selling time.  High property values usually affect the entire surrounding community.

Using Wrought Iron vs. Aluminum for Your Home Security Fence and Gate

If you’ve been considering home fencing and gate options, then you’ve probably been looking into the difference between the various metal options that are available to you.  In order to make the best possible decision, you'll need what each option affords you.  Wrought iron and aluminum fencing should be considered in particular because of their impressive combination of functionality and beauty.

Here is a comparison of wrought iron fencing and aluminum fencing so you can make the best choice for your home:

1. Durability- Aluminum fencing is surprisingly durable and is a great option for residential and commercial properties alike.  Wrought iron fencing is more common for residential properties, but it also offers phenomenal durability.  Either option will be standing for years to come, no matter what the elements throw at it and will require little to no-maintenance on your part. 

2. Cost- Common belief is that wrought iron fencing costs significantly more than aluminum and, while it does cost more, the difference is usually minimal.  This should by no means be a deciding factor if you will be fencing in a small area and have a preference for one over the other.  However, if you have a large property, then you can expect to see more savings by choosing aluminum fencing.

3. Looks- Fencing can be a very personal decision and should match the décor and style of your home.  This can be achieved with either wrought iron fencing or aluminum fencing and mainly depends on your personal preference.  For many homes, classic wrought iron fencing can add a great, traditional look.

At Paramount Fence of Illinois, we offer a wide variety of aluminum and wrought iron fencing options for your home or business.  We will gladly work with you to find the perfect fencing option for your needs and property.  To learn more about our fencing business, call us at (630) 406-8410.
