Before you choose to erect a fence, there are several factors the homeowner needs to consider. It is important to think about what you want to keep in the yard, such as your children and the family pets, along with what you want to keep out of the yard. Furthermore, consider whether you want the fence to create complete privacy between you and your neighbours. While all fences increase the security level of your home, different types of fences fit naturally with unique architectural styles. Before you have the fence installed, know your property lines. Two popular choices in fencing are Colorbond and Aluminium slat.
