How Fencing Can Increase the Value of Your Property

Fencing Adds Value

Installing a new fence is a relatively inexpensive way to add significant value to your home. Some of the benefits of fencing are obvious; a fence will increase curb appeal, protect your privacy, and provide a solid foundation for landscape design. But what many homeowners don’t realize is that adding a fence can also increase the value of your property.

If you plan to add a fence, there are three major considerations: function, aesthetics, and cost. Function is the most important, as it drives the other considerations. What is the main purpose of your fence? A fence designed primarily to provide privacy can look very different from a fence designed to give children and pets a safe place to play. Once you know why you want a fence, you can decide what it should look like and what your budget is.

With that in mind, let’s focus on three ways a fence can increase the value of your home, and how we can help.

#1— Safety

One of the biggest considerations for families searching for a new home is having an enclosed yard where kids and pets can play safely. Yes, buyers can always add a fence, but wouldn’t a house with a fence already installed be so much nicer? It’s far better to inspire buyers to think “This house already has everything we need!” instead of causing buyers to feel like the house is incomplete and will require additional investment on their end.

#2 — Privacy

     Bring the indoors outside. Whether you want protection from prying neighbours and noisy traffic or simply an enclosed haven from the world, a privacy fence is your best option. Our modern Colorbond Fencing comes in a range of colours and will help turn your yard into an extension of your home whenever you feel inspired to bring the family outdoors or just experience a quiet moment to yourself. It also comes with a 10-year warranty, meaning no headaches or maintenance. And if you’re looking to sell in the near future, potential buyers will be delighted that they won’t have to worry about unexpected repairs.

# 3 — Aesthetics

A fence is essentially an extension of the architecture of your home and is a great way to define your space. It can even make your yard appear larger if designed correctly. Whether installed by itself or in tandem with a landscape redesign, an attractive fence is an excellent foundation for any landscape project and will increase your home’s curb appeal. We have a variety of options and colours to choose from, so you can be sure the style of your fence is a perfect match for your personal aesthetic.

With all these benefits, how much will a fence add to the net value of your property? That ultimately depends on the buyers and their precise needs. But an attractive, private, and safe home is certainly preferable to a home that is dull, exposed, and unprotected. In other words, a stylish fence (like one of our modular walls) can increase buyer enthusiasm for your home, leading it to sell faster and at a higher price, making your new fence a fabulous investment for your family and your future.

We offer fences that will cover any need you may have. Call us today!

What Are Modular Wall Systems? Why Are They Growing In Popularity In Australia?

Modular walls are walls made of panels and posts types that are designed and manufactured using a lightweight inner core and a fibre cement outer skin. The EPS inner core works to absorb sound vibrations thereby reducing noise pollution. It also offers the panel its form and functions to increase rigidity. On the other hand, the laminate fibre cement outer skin gives the panel the rigidity, sturdiness, and impact resistance needed in a property wall.

While the thickness of the wall may vary and other specialised inputs may be used to enhance specific characteristics, all modular walls are manufactured with the materials as mentioned earlier.

#1. Cheaper Than Traditional Building Materials

The number one reason property owners are increasingly opting for modular walls as opposed traditional walls are the lower price of the modular units. As leaders in this market, Skilled Fencing reckons that modular walls are about half the price of a brick wall. Furthermore, the maintenance costs are significantly lower. As such, over the lifetime of the wall, you can expect to spend less on the wall than you would have if were you to opt for the traditional brick wall.

#2. Offers Excellent Noise Reduction Capabilities

While noise pollution is dependent on various factors such as terrain, noise type, and height, modular walls have been proven to perform better than traditional walls with regards to lowering noise pollution. In some cases, these walls have been shown to reduce the noise by as much as four times.

#3. Modular Wall Systems Are Environmentally Friendly

The walls are engineered to be environmentally friendly in all fronts. For instance, the walls do not waste resources during their manufacture as their manufacturing process is precise. Additionally, the manufacturing process of modular walls is a bit more friendly to the environment.

#4. They Are Sturdy And Durable

As mentioned above, modular walls are designed with a fibre cement outer layer and an EPS inner core. The combination of these two materials yields a sturdy, impact resistant, and durable panel that can last for years and years. This means that you won’t have to worry about replacing your modular walls for a long time, if ever. e

#5. They Are Aesthetically Pleasing

Brick and stone walls have long been favoured by homeowners in Australia for their beauty, classic looks, and endearing beauty. However, modular walls offer the same aesthetic appearance and much more. Homeowners can choose from a wide array of wall designs and styles that complements or matches the design and style of their properties. Often time folks think that using modular walls means giving up beautiful wall styling, but with today’s modern wall units, this is no longer the case.

#6. Exceptional Versatility

Modular walls can be used in a wide range of environments; in residential properties (for pool area fencing, retaining walls, boundary walls, front walls, corner blocks, acoustic fencing, courtyards, and much more) and even commercial properties (for retaining walls, acoustic fencing, and boundary wall).

With these benefits in mind, many homeowners are unarmoured with the wall’s return on investment. The wall will last for years to come, serving you well throughout its usable life, and costing you a fraction of the traditional wall. Modular walls offer superior performance for far less.
