3 Ways a Fence Makes Your Property Safer & More Secure, New Braunfels, Texas

According to the FBI, nearly two million households in the U.S. fall victim to burglary every year, many of which were crimes of opportunity that could have been prevented. Installing a high-tech security system and using a little common sense go a long way towards preventing break-ins. However, you'd be surprised at how effective putting up a fence can be at keeping unwanted intruders out and your loved ones in, according to Shelton's Outback Fence Co in New Braunfels.

3 Ways a Fence Makes Your Property Safer & More Secure

fence 1. Decreases Access

Even if you've forgotten to lock a window or the back door, just having a fence makes it much less likely that an intruder will even discover the opportunity. Climbing a fence makes them much more visible to passers-by and neighbors, which means most criminals will simply give your home a pass and try to find a more vulnerable target.

2. Cuts Visibility

A good privacy fence shields you and your family members not only from the prying eyes of neighbors but also from burglars who might be looking for a lucrative target. If they can't tell who lives in your house or what they might stand to gain, they may be less likely to take the risk.

3. Protects Children & Pets

Every parent worries about their children wandering off, and losing a pet is every dog owner's nightmare. A good fence with a strong gate means having the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you won't suddenly lose a loved one in your own backyard.
