5 Benefits of a Wood Privacy Fence With a Florida Fence Contractor

Why Choose a Wood Privacy Fence?

Yes, privacy is very important these days and the natural beauty of wood is certainly a great choice to use for your fence.  Even if you’ve decided on a different material for your fence, there are additional benefits that come with any fence material you use. We’ve put together a list of perks that you’ll get with a privacy fence that is installed by an expert Florida fence contractor like Elite Fence & Outdoor!   

Fences Keep Your Family and Pets Protected in Tampa, Florida

When your kids go outside to play, a privacy fence can give you some peace of mind. A secure fence will keep them in your yard and keep unwanted strangers away. It will also provide a boundary for your outdoor living spaces so your family and friends can enjoy some time together without the neighborhood looking in. 

A traditional Tampa wood fence provides a safe place for your pet to roam without the worry of your fluffy pal wandering off to greet anyone he sees. Obviously, a simple wooden fence won’t stop a dedicated thief, but it can ward off vandals and others who may commit “crimes of opportunity”, and lead to a more secure home overall. 

Defined Property Boundaries With Wood Privacy Fencing in Tampa

Your Tampa property is more exposed to trespassers if the border isn’t properly defined.  Before beginning construction on your privacy fence, have a chat with any close neighbors who may be affected by your plans to install a privacy fence.  They may even be willing to go in on the cost of the fence with you! It is a good idea to have a land surveyor mark your property lines before installing a fence to ensure you’re not encroaching on your neighbor’s property. When you and your neighbors are clear about your property lines, you can avoid potential problems down the line.

Less Noise With a Privacy Fence

If your home backs up onto a busy street, you’ll be amazed at how much quieter it is with a six or eight-foot privacy fence. The solid construction reflects sound and gives you some welcome respite from the hustle and bustle just outside your home. No matter which kind of privacy fence you choose for your Tampa neighborhood, it will still function as a sound barrier that will benefit both you and your neighbors in the long run.

Privacy fences allow you to have gatherings with friends and family in seclusion without disturbing neighbors and, sometimes more importantly, without neighbors disturbing you. Being a considerate neighbor is the right thing to do, and with a privacy fence, it’s that much easier!

Protection from Weather in Tampa with Privacy Fences

Privacy fencing installed by a Florida fence contractor is a great way to protect your property from the elements in Florida because of our frequent storms with lots of wind and rain. When there’s a storm, your landscaping, plants and other outdoor furniture will benefit from the protection of a well-built Tampa wood fence. A solid, wood privacy fence will provide shade that allows certain shade plants to thrive.

The Value of Florida Privacy Fences

Throughout Florida, an attractive and well-built privacy fence may benefit the value of your property in several ways. For starters, it may be a sought-after amenity to future purchasers. A potential homebuyer will likely appreciate a border fence, especially for the backyard space. If a buyer has children or pets, they’ll be happy to see that there is already a fence on the property to keep their family safe. Not only that, but the aesthetic value a privacy fence can provide can give you selling benefits in the future, too.

Depending on the company, a privacy fence installed by an expert Florida fence contractor may significantly decrease your insurance cost. Florida privacy fences may also add value by decreasing your homeowner’s insurance premium when you report the installation of the fence to your insurance carrier. Always check before arranging the installation of your fence, to see what their policies are and what benefits you may receive.

Additional Material Options for Privacy Fences 

Privacy fences are available in a variety of materials, styles, and levels of personalization. Wood fences, chain-link fences, and vinyl fences all have options for improving your privacy that you will love.

Wood privacy fences are available in different heights and styles, like stockade and shadowbox configurations. Chain link privacy slats come in several different colors, and they fit into the chain-link gaps to increase the amount of view obstruction. Also, vinyl privacy fencing provides low maintenance and longevity.

Secure Privacy Fences for Tampa Property Owners

A privacy fence by a top Florida fence contractor, Elite Fence & Outdoor, offers the best level of security for both residential and commercial properties. You won’t be visible from outside your yard, and it serves as a defined barrier that shouldn’t be crossed. Intruders may not be completely deterred by a privacy fence, but they will be put off by the difficulty of getting in and out of your yard or business.

Durability and Strength With a Tampa Privacy Fence

Each privacy fence material in Tampa, FL has its own benefits and disadvantages. For example, a vinyl privacy fence in Tampa can survive the strong winds and weather without fading or warping because of its durable material design. Vinyl also boasts a clean, bright aesthetic.

A chain-link privacy fence’s galvanized steel framing and composition have made it a popular choice for Tampa homes and businesses because of its benefits such as long-term durability and minimal maintenance costs.

Our recommendation for a Tampa wood fence is to use pressure-treated pine – a main benefit of pine is that its upfront cost is a bit less, and while it has that natural charm, it doesn’t quite have the longevity of other fencing materials.
