• Why You Need to Keep Wildlife Off of Your Property

    Striped Skunk Sniffs in the Grass

    Wildlife doesn’t understand the concept of “destruction of property,” nor do wild animals feel sorry for destroying your award-winning rose garden or tipping over your garbage cans in search of a meal. Wildlife can also carry a number of transmittable diseases, many of which can be quite serious if left untreated. There are also far too many stories of wildlife attacks on pets and humans. In other words, the best way to protect your property, your pets, and your family is to keep wildlife out, and the best way to do that is by installing a durable fence around your property.

    If you want to fence in your property and keep wildlife intruders at bay, contact Paramount Fence .

  • Is White Picket Fencing Right for Your Home?

    The phrase “white picket fence” has become so ingrained in our culture that it has moved beyond its original literal meaning to one that is used to describe the ideal representation of “the good life.” However, white picket fencing isn’t right for every home. If you are in love with this quintessentially American fence, make sure that you use the right pickets (and the right color) for your home. Here are a few tips for using picket fencing around your home

    Matching Colors
    Most people think picket fences are always white. However, picket fences can be painted any color you’d like. The only reason people have the image of white picket fences is because of their long-standing association with American Colonial architecture. Largely, white is the traditional body color of these homes, so it makes sense that the picket fence would match. But when it comes to your home, the best advice is to match the color of your picket fence to the color of your home. Of course, if you must have a white picket fence, you could always paint your house to match.

    Matching Style
    Just as important as matching the color of the picket fence to the color of your home is matching the picket style to the style of your home. One of the best ways to match a picket fence with your home is to go off the roof pitch. For example, if you have a steeply pitched roof, then you should go with sharp, pointed pickets. The vertical height of your home will also help you determine the best picket fence style. If your home is single story, go with a shorter picket fence.

    Between Autumn and Winter

    What things come to mind when you hear winter is approaching?  Snow, ice, blizzards, shoveling, hot cocoa, holiday cheer, bargain shopping, fence installation??  You’re thinking, “Fence installation, in the winter?”  That’s right; Paramount Fence, Inc. installs fences all year round!                                                 

    Now, you may be asking yourself, “But, how can you install a fence in the winter with snow on the frozen ground?”  One of the great things about snow is that is acts as an insulator for the ground.  So, it is actually better for our crews when installing to have snow on the ground.  Here in the Chicagoland area, the ground does freeze in the winter.  What does this mean for fence installation?  The fence holes are dug at least 36” deep, well below the frost line, so the frozen ground is not an issue for winter fence installation.

    At Paramount Fence Inc., we guarantee our workmanship for 5 years.  If you have an issue with a post heaving, we will come out to inspect the issue and re-set the post at no cost to you.

  • 3 Reasons to Add a Fence to Your Property

    There are many ways to improve your home’s security, value, and curb appeal, but only new fencing does all three at once. No matter what material you choose, your property will be transformed after you add a beautiful new fence . In addition to serving as a physical demarcation of your property’s boundary lines, a new fence does so much more for the comfort and value of your home. If you are unsure about this addition, consider these three benefits of adding a fence to your property.

    one,two and three

    Increase Curb Appeal
    Curb appeal is the measure of how attractive and inviting your home is from the street. While it is always a good idea to take pride in the appearance of your home, curb appeal can have a big impact when the time comes to sell your home. Before you place your home on the market, consider investing in a beautiful wood or wrought iron fence to increase the curb appeal and interest potential buyers.

    Contain Pets and Children
    There are many benefits of living on a large, sprawling property. However, if you have pets and/or children, it can be stressful to leave them outside on their own. With a new fence, you can let your dogs sunbathe and your children play outside without worrying about them straying too far from home.

    Gain Privacy and Security
    A privacy fence will deter nosy neighbors and peeping Toms from looking inside your home. After you install a new fence, you can enjoy every square inch of your property without feeling exposed or vulnerable to peering eyes. The higher your fence, the more privacy you will have.

    These are just three reasons to add a fence to your property, but there are dozens more. If you are interested in adding a fence around your home, contact Paramount Fence today. With a huge selection of wood, vinyl, aluminum, and ornamental fences, we are your source for quality fences in the Chicagoland area. If you have any questions, please call us at (630) 406-8410.
