Why you need a privacy fence

If you have a yard without a fence or even just a chain link fence, you might be wondering if you should upgrade. Privacy fences are a great solution for homeowners, and there are many reasons why you should consider installing a privacy fence, whether that is a vinyl fence adding slats to your existing chain link fence, or any other kind. Here’s why you need a privacy fence:

1. Protect children

If you have children, you definitely should consider a privacy fence. Even if you live in an incredibly safe neighborhood and always supervise your children outside, a privacy fence is an important safety measure. It will prevent people, including predators, from being able to see your children playing outside in the yard. It will also work to keep your children safe by keeping them in your yard and stopping them from running out into the street or other dangerous situations.

2. Enjoy Outdoors in Privacy

Even if you don’t have kids, it’s nice to have privacy in your own backyard. Whether you’d like to sunbathe without prying eyes, or you want to throw a party without all of your neighbors who weren’t invited seeing, adding a privacy fence can make you feel much more comfortable spending time out in your yard.

3. Protect Valuables

If you store anything valuable in your yard, such as bicycles or a grill, you want to keep them out of sight of potential thieves. One solution is to lock them in a shed or chained up, but it’s much easier to install a privacy fence to stop anyone from scoping out your yard and your valuables.

4. Protect animals

Privacy fences are also important if you have animals that spend time outdoors. A privacy fence will prevent your dog from seeing and yapping at every other dog that walks by. A chain link fence might stop a dog from leaving the yard, but it doesn’t stop him from seeing things outside the yard that might excite or aggravate him.

5. Appearance

Let’s face it, chain link fences don’t look great. A good privacy fence can be a beautiful addition to your yard, and even increase your curb appeal if you plan on selling your home someday. In the meantime, you can enjoy a beautiful privacy fence every time you step outdoors.

    “We proposed using Noodle Link on a large job for a major company, which was approved. The company has two locations. We were awarded one location. The other location was awarded to another fence company that put up chain link only and hand inserted the slats afterward. We both started at the same time. We finished more than two weeks earlier than the company that hand inserted the slats…”
    – Jeff in Pennsylvania

    “What a time saver Noodle Link is. We will certainly use Noodle Link on our next job. We can’t believe how beautiful this job turned out and it was a 10-foot installation. It was a no-brainer to consider and use this product.”
    – Denise in Florida

    “My customer tried Noodle Link last October and liked it so well that he has asked me for another Noodle Link quote for $40,000.”
