Q. Does putting a fence on your property, increase the value?

A. Did you know that fencing is one of the best ways to increase your home’s value ? In fact, NOT having a fence is among the biggest threats to your home’s resale value according to the MSN Real Estate website. A realtor will tell you, a home without a fence and landscaping is just a house.

Q. We want to install a fence around our one-acre lot. How much fencing will that require?

A. It depends on the shape of your property, but if square you will need an estimated 835 feet of fence. When consider high linear footage, we recommend chain link fencing, our most economical option.

Q. We plan to add a swimming pool to our backyard. Do we need a fence around it, even though we don’t have any young children in the home?

A. Yes. Not only is a pool fence or other enclosure a safety measure, it is also a legal obligation. The City of Philadelphia requires an enclosure around all swimming pools with a depth of more than six inches. The pool fence or enclosure must be at least four feet high with no opening, holes or gaps more than four inches. Gates must be equipped with self-closing and self-latching devices attached to the upper quarter of the gate.
