How Fencing Affects the Value of Your Home

How Fencing Affects the Value of Your Home
  • Opening Intro -

    If you're a homeowner, you know how difficult it can be to keep things up and running.

    There is always some project that pops up that you didn't foresee happening.

    So for many, this is something not out of the ordinary.


Often, whatever you add to your home tends to increase its value. Depending on what the addition is, it can add more value than you’d expect.

Here’s some more information about how fencing affects the value of your home so that you can know what to do to increase or maintain your property accordingly.

Monetary Value vs. Purpose

There is a fine line between the functionality of something and its value, and your home is no exception. When you make any kind of addition, you should consider it an improvement that keeps your home in working order for longer. However, some additions aren’t as preventative and productive and can even be wasteful.

This is where you draw the line, and the practical purpose of remodeling and renovation stop. It’s important to focus on functionality when making additions to your home so that it can have a long and healthy lifespan while you live there.

Privacy and Protection

Most people have fences installed for more basic reasons than increasing the market value. Privacy is one of the main concerns that people have when they have fences installed, and for a good reason. Neighbors can be bothersome to a degree, and so can animals.

You also want protection from whatever or whoever might have ill intent on breaking into your home. This is only a basic layer of protection, and you should always view it as a first layer. However, it’s still a necessary step in keeping your home safe.

Aesthetic Appeal

Finally, the look and feel of your home make it no longer just a house but your own residence. When you have a fence, it should reflect who you are and what you like.

Your intentions reflect the style and model of your fence. For example, something you should consider when building your fence is whether wood or vinyl is right for your home.

If you’re going for white pickets in the front yard, you may be more inviting and just want the curb appeal. If you’re more of a traditionalist, you might go for a warm wood to feel inviting without coming off as offensive.

Weather Deterrent

Depending on where you live gives rise to a lot of questions about the weather and climate. The amount of rainfall and wind that you see yearly and the range of temperatures are all things that people like to know before settling somewhere.

These factors could be deal-breakers if the environment isn’t preferable to your wants and needs. Or it could be that you have a pleasant area with mild weather conditions.
