What Are Your Needs?

The first thing to consider is how you need your fence to serve you. If you have children or pets, for instance, you will need to keep their safety in mind when choosing your fence solution. For dogs, we typically recommend a higher fence, as a determined pooch can surprise you with his or her abilities! Large dogs are often known to scale 6 foot fences in all sorts of surprising ways. For kids, you may want to avoid unfinished wood options, so as to avoid potential splinters. Do you have a pool? If so, a pool safety fence is an important installment that you may need! Also keep your privacy preferences in mind. Wood offer reliable privacy, and metal fences not so much.

What Are Your Preferences?

As far as preferences go, think about maintenance as well as aesthetics. For example, if you prefer to keep maintenance to a minimum, such as an annual power wash, you may be interested in metal or chain link. If you prefer a less expensive fence that will last or about 10 years, wood fences may be a better option. for a long lasting and unique looking fence, ask us about our bamboo fences.

Drowning Dangers

The Center for Disease Control, also known as the CDC, provides plenty of tips that are designed to help keep people safe. they also provide the public with statistics surrounding the dangers of just about anything you may encounter. In statistics published here, we get a crystal clear view of just how big of a threat drowning really is. Drowning actually accounts for more than one third of the unintentional deaths of children aged 1 through 4. Between ages 1 and 14, death caused by drowning is second only to automobile crashes. It takes only a few minutes of a child being out of site for tragedy to strike. Most children involved in drowning accidents were reported as out of site for 5 minutes or less. The CDC also tells us that adding a full pool safety fence reduces the risk of drowning by over 80%!
