As a homeowner in South Florida, you’re probably always on the lookout for ways to improve your home’s curb appeal, security, and value.
Maybe you noticed the neighbors down the street have just replaced their fence, or you’re looking to create space from your neighbors, or even conceal valuable vehicles and tools, a privacy style fence could be the answer you’ve been searching for.
Whether you’re buying a new home, updating the one you’ve had for years, or even renting out a property, a quality fence is one of the best ways to boost your home’s appeal and give you the privacy you want for your property.
Different Fencing styles have different levels of visibility depending on the spacing of pickets; privacy style fences have no visibility between pickets. A PVC Privacy style fence is a great option if you’re looking to secure your property from all visibility.
In fact. homeowners may choose to fence in a yard to deter prying eyes, enclose animals and children, and increase security by deterring trespassers.
Most cities allow full privacy styles to be used in residential areas, but others, like Sunrise and Coral Springs, do not allow full privacy options.
It’s best to always consult your city’s building and municipalities department for permitting, and regulations. (Please visit our resources page for further help with permitting in your county/city. )
Further regulation may pertain to the overall height of the fence. Most cities allow a maximum of 6 feet in height for back and side yards. Others may require a maximum of 4 feet high for front yards. But one thing all residential areas have in common, 6 feet is the maximum height for all residential fencing projects.
A special permission from your city called a variance may be obtained under special circumstances to allow for installation of an 8 foot height.
All permits should be pulled before the purchase and installation of a privacy fence to ensure that you are installing the right specifications of PVC privacy fencing depending on your specific situation.
Consult your city’s building and municipalities department for more information on regulations in your area.
Securing your property with PVC privacy fence in South Florida is a great way to add a layer of security for your home by keeping trespassers at bay and concealing valuables from the public eye.
Furthermore, our manufacturer’s products are wind tested and designed to withstand wind speeds of up to 75 miles per hour for standard privacy fencing, and far more for a hurricane zone privacy fence. The pickets in this style are designed to blow away in small pieces in the case of bigger storms.
