A new fence is a great addition to a property, considering the provided advantages: increased protection and security, as well as enhanced visual aspect. However, a new fence also represent a big investment, especially if we are talking about a fence made in expensive materials, so it is important to know when it is time for a new fence and start planning early.
Basically, you will need a new fence when the existing one is too old and deteriorated to be repaired anymore. Actually, you can always opt for repairs, but they will not be feasible if the fence is too damaged or if it was not installed properly in the first place. A honest Thornton fence company can look at you current fence and give you a good idea if you need new or a simple repair will do.
Some people also choose to install a new fence for aesthetic reasons (they want to replace a wood fence with one made in wrought iron that matches their newly remodeled property), as well as for safety and privacy reasons. Maybe they have a white picket fence and want to replace it with a decorative wrought iron fence, or maybe they need more privacy and prefer replacing a low fence with a higher one, made from masonry or other compact materials that keep away indiscreet eyes.
