Nothing provides security for a home like a fence. A well-built quality fence is a visual and physical deterrent for criminals looking to break into our homes. A fence will force a criminal to scale it – thereby alerting anyone else observing this act suspiciously.
Fences will provide a “psychological barrier” to some would-be criminals – meaning that the act of climbing over a fence will discourage some folks from wandering into a yard. However, in general, fences will deter some and slow down others; they will not stop a determined criminal. Making sure your fence is secure and gates are locked at night or when leaving town will help protect all of your property and loved ones. See more tips on how to protect your home.
