    Your Current Fence Is Getting Older
    How long have you had your current fence? Depending on the material, age can be one of the most important factors to consider when deciding on a new fence. If you have a wood fence, aging may be a big concern. A new fence will provide your home’s exterior with a durable and dependable fixture.

    You Notice Rust on the Fence
    Rust can be a concern for homeowners with metal fences. If you have an aluminum fence, you may notice signs of corrosion due to exposure to natural elements. When rust or corrosion becomes too severe, a new fence can be a better alternative to costly repairs and maintenance fees.

    You See Signs of Storm Damage
    Exposure to natural elements often results in rust and corrosion, but severe elements can lead to other types of damage. Wind and rain may affect the appearance and stability of your fence. Inspect your fence for water or paint damage. You should also check the stability of your fence to determine if you should invest in a new once.

    You Want a New Fence!
    If your current fence is no longer visually appealing, it may be time to try something new and more attractive. Consider switching to a different material, such as a wood or aluminum fence, or try a different color!

  • Choosing a Fence Color that Compliments Your Property

    Building and painting of wooden fence.

    Painting your fence is an easy and affordable way to rejuvenate your yard space. You can choose a color that is bold and unexpected, or something neutral that blends in with the natural scenery of your property. When searching for the right color, look to your house and garden for inspiration. You might want your fence to reflect or compliment the colors found in the flowers, trees, and grass in your garden. You can also paint your fence to match the trim of your home. If you have a patio, you might choose a color that blends with your patio furniture’s color palette. If your home is designed with neutral colors, any color fence can work as an accent. Keeping your fence neutral, however, can help the colors in your garden stand out.

    The possibilities for personalizing your fence and property are limitless. Paramount Fence offers fence installation in several materials, including wood, vinyl, aluminum and cedar. If you are interested in enhancing your property by installing a fence, give us a call at (630) 406-8410.

    Make A Plan
    Decide what purpose your fence will have. A fence designed for privacy might look very different from one designed to keep a pet in. Finding the purpose for your fence will help you select materials. There are several types of fence to choose from, so it is also important to do your research on materials. Consider the cost, maintenance, and functionality when making a decision. When planning, it is also important to know that fence installation can happen year-round and has no seasonal limits.

    Consider Your Neighbors
    Before installing your fence, research your neighborhoods policies and provisions. It is important to know if you neighborhood doesn’t allow a particular type of fence. Avoid fencing in your neighbors’ property by understanding the location of your property line. If you aren’t sure where it is, you can have a survey done. Out of courtesy for your neighbors, it’s also good to discuss plans for your fence installation with them before breaking ground.

    Maintain Your Fence
    Installing a fence can affect the value of your home, so it is important to properly maintain it. If you decide to paint your fence, you can paint all pieces of wood after they have been cut, but before they are installed. This will help the paint job last longer. You might need to perform touch-ups every year or two to maintain the fence’s aesthetics. Every few months, check your fence for peeling, mold, splintering, and insects.

  • Building a Privacy Fence

    A privacy fence should not only shield your home, but also provide security. If you install the fence properly, people won’t be able to climb over it. A typical fence will have 4 x 4 posts set into concrete, and rails set sideways along the posts. The pickets of the fence are screwed onto the outside of the fence. Installing the pickets on the outside ensure that no one can step onto the rails and climb over your fence. Watch this video to learn more about building a privacy fence on your property.
