How to Choose the Best Residential Security Fence

You want a fence that looks nice but is also sturdy and protective.

Choosing the perfect residential security fence for your property can be stressful—choosing the right material, picking the perfect color, and deciding what add-on features you would like to use. Here are some simple tips to choosing the best residential security fence for your home.  

Take Away the Hiding Spots

Privacy fences should be solid and completely opaque, but security fences should be see-through. Why? If you can see through your fence, you will always be able to see who is approaching your home. Metal fences with thin bars will offer you a good deal of security and also prevent burglars from feeling like they can slip in and out without being seen (or catch you off guard).

Make It Hard to Climb

If you have a great fence but it’s easy to climb, it isn’t very secure at all! Follow these tips for your residential security fence:

  •      Build your fence at least 8 feet tall (make sure to check with local regulations or your homeowners association first)
  •      Put spikes or points on the top of your fence. By having these elements incorporated in your fence itself, you avoid unsightly barbed wire or razor wire on the top.
  •      Make sure that your fence doesn’t have many horizontal rails. These can provide a foothold for potential burglars to get over your fence and onto your property.

Make It Impossible to Avoid

Finally, make sure that your residential security fence is designed so that people cannot go around it, under it, or break through it. To ensure that your security fence does its job:

  •      Secure your fence to the ground with concrete footing. If you can’t afford to do so for the entire length of the fence, secure the posts.
  •      Ensure that your fencing material cannot be cut through with bolt cutters.
  •      Include gates that are high quality so that the fence quality isn’t weakened by a low-quality gate.
