Now that your taxes are finished for the year (hopefully) and you’re receiving a reasonably large refund (hopefully), it’s time to decide what to do next! Saving the money is always a good option, but if you’ve got some home improvements to do now could be the perfect time. Spring is a great time to construct or repair your home’s fence, for example. Spring is good because it’s before hurricane season. If your fence is older and needs repair, doing so before hurricane winds and rain hits could help prolong its life. If you want to build a new fence, it’s great to get it finished before summer barbecue season.
A fence is a smart home improvement because it not only adds visual appeal, safety and security to your home, it also adds resale value when you’re ready to sell it. Shorter fences such as vinyl picket and wood ranch rail are great for adding charm to your property. For a fence who’s main purpose is to keep kids and pets in the yard, consider an aluminum or chain link fence. If you’re looking for the ultimate privacy and security, a wooden or vinyl privacy fence is the way to go.
