Wood Fences, Gates and Residential Security

March 21, 2012
Wood Fences

Consider the role of a fence or gate

A good fence adds to your residential security.

US Alarm reports crawling over a fence of any height draws attention, so criminals are more likely to choose homes without fences.

A fence also provides safety and containment for children and pets, plus it offers the privacy you crave for your family while you enjoy your outdoor living space.

Along with fences, gates provide the perception of security, safety and privacy.

The question is: do fences and gates really reduceĀ  crime? According to, the answer to that common question is an unqualified YES. Fences and gates provide both a physical and psychological barrier for criminals.

Privacy equals exclusivity in affluent residential neighborhoods, where adding an attractive gate entry system can easily add up to $50,000 in value to a single family home.

Great blog!


Tom, thanks for visiting our blog!


I like how wood fences can be custom designed to compliment any landscape and home. They offer unique characteristics that appeal to many consumers. When properly installed, a wood fence will be virtually impossible to knock down or compromise. You will have peace of mind knowing that your children, pets, and loved ones are safe and secure in your yard.


Thank you for your comment Cha and we agree. Keep up the good work in BC!
