Fenced in backyards are safer especially for rear-entry homes

The majority of rear entry homes in North Texas have a fenced in backyard that stops at the driveway.  Having a driveway fenced in creates a larger play area for children perfect for a basketball court, skate boards or roller blades.  This also eliminates the fear of children being struck by a car while playing in a driveway. If a homeowner extends the fence across the driveway then up the property line, the size of the entire backyard could increases by as much as 40%.

There are a few ways to do this.  If you’re planning on fencing in the entire back portion of your property an automated access gate is a great option.  This comes in two forms sliding or swing.  You may be stuck on deciding which to go with. Truly, neither mode of operation is better than the other. Both sliding and swing gates can provide years of lasting use. For Automatic Swing Gates, use of hydraulic or mechanical operators will ensure trouble free installation and use. Sliding gates are used more frequently in commercial or industrial applications, but can be modified for residential use. Titan Fence offers an inventory flush with different operating and control options Titan Fence experts will work with you on deciding which mode is best suited to your new or existing fence configuration.

The Type of Wood Matters

Homeowners as well as businesses face several decisions when considering any new fencing solution.  Our goal at Titan is to make the proper recommendations to suit the needs of each individual client. The first decision is always the type of wood.  A fence constructed from high-quality materials is your best defense against the elements. Overtime, the harsh Texas weather can exact considerable damage to a fence.   Our experts at Titan use only high-quality fence supplies and materials that resist extreme weather conditions including moisture, temperature and humidity.  Replacing your fence is an investment in your future and will add value to a home or business.

According to the International Association of Certified Home Builders, a wood fence has an approximate lifespan of about 20 years with regular maintenance. A fence’s life expectancy can be increased significantly if you pay more up front for a high-quality wood. Here are a few of the species that tend to hold up better than others:

Western Red Cedar      White Oak      Pressure Treated Pine      Plastic Lumber

Fenced In Pet Areas

Keeping pets confined in a small fenced in area will help protect your lawn & landscape from unwanted digging and chewing plus keep your pets safer.  We have installed a variety of pet fences for both homeowners and businesses in the North Texas area.  The most common type of pet fence is usually chain-link or hurricane style fencing.  Black ornamental iron is also a popular style but is a more expensive option.  Titan Fence offers ornamental iron pet fencing in a variety of colors and heights.  It is a more appealing than chain-link and will add value to a home or business.

 

Pet lovers who own homes have found that a side yard tends to be the best location for a fenced in dog run / pet area.  This provides easier access for the homeowner to their pets and in some cases a doggie door can be installed giving our canine friends free access in and out of the home.

Play Area Fencing

With the growth we are experiencing in North Texas new play areas for our children are popping up all over.  Many of these kid friendly locations need fencing to keep our children safe.  At Titan Fence we recommend a variety of fence types that prevent kids from running out in busy streets or just keep them confined in a specific area whether it is for a school or athletic venue.

A medium height chain link fence is most commonly used around school play yards.  Black ornamental-iron fencing is more appealing and is widely used for HOA’s around pools to either keep kids in or out.  This option is more expensive that chain link but increases the value of neighborhoods and community pools.  Titan has provided fencing for athletic fields, schools and home owners associations in McKinney, Frisco, Savanah and Little Elm.
