For many homeowners, peace-of-mind is more valuable than gold. That’s one of the reasons why privacy fences are so popular. No matter the size of your house or property, you should invest whatever you need to protect your own little castle. Investing in security fences will pay many dividends, both now and in the future. What options do you have? Well, let’s take a closer look at them.
Board-on-Board or Shadowbox
This first style of privacy fence goes by two common names. Among its counterparts, it stands out as the most frequently used model. It’s simple and inexpensive, and it closes the tricky gaps between boards. This tactic reduces visibility to see what’s on the other side of the fence. Also, it easily lets air blow through, so you won’t have to worry about the fence structure being knocked down.
Perhaps you’d be interested in the lock board design instead? The tongue-and-groove style forms interlocking boards that then combine into a solid panel that thwarts outside viewing. Moreover, you can place it over uneven terrain, so if there are hills somewhere on your land, you can overcome that natural obstacle with ease. That said, if you need to have some air movement to cool down your home, this might not be the best choice for you.
We’d hazard a guess that many homeowners do not know what a convex privacy fence is supposed to be. Two boards are put together side-by-side, and then the height is calculated so as to mimic a pleasant wave aesthetic. It bolsters privacy potential while also improving your home’s curb appeal.
The idea of a dog-eared privacy fence sounds silly, but in reality, it is no joke. It’s quite charming once you see it up close and personal. It doesn’t look as ordinary as a conventional flat-topped fence and it’s also easy to modify as needed.
Finally, we want to give you an overview of the stockade-style of privacy fence. This particular fence design emphasizes security. Pointed tops will discourage intruders from entering your yard by scaling the fence; the main complaint against this type of fence is that it doesn’t look very pretty compared to its fellows.
