There are a lot of advantages to having a privacy fence, so we’ve compiled a list of the benefits and a variety of materials to help you decide.

  • New Hampshire Privacy Fences Keep Your Family and Pets Protected

A strong privacy fence in New Hampshire can ease your worries when your children play outside. One of the greatest ways to keep your kids and pets safe is to keep them inside the boundaries of your property. If your property is right next to a busy street, this is especially true. Since you can’t keep an eye on kids and pets 24/7, fencing is an ideal solution. It can prevent them from wandering into the street or your neighbor’s yard. A secure fence will keep them in your yard and keep unwanted strangers away. It will also provide a boundary for your outdoor living spaces so your family and friends can enjoy some time together without the neighborhood looking in. 

  • Less Noise With a Privacy Fence

A New Hampshire privacy fence made with the right design and materials can serve as a noise barrier, blocking out some or most of the unwanted sounds from outside your home. If your home backs up onto a busy street, you’ll be amazed at how much quieter it is with a six or eight-foot privacy fence. The solid construction reflects sound and gives you some welcome respite from the hustle and bustle just outside your home. No matter which kind of privacy fence you choose for your Derry neighborhood, it will still function as a sound barrier that will benefit both you and your neighbors in the long run.


New Hampshire privacy fences allow you to have gatherings with friends and family in seclusion without disturbing your neighbors and, sometimes more importantly, without neighbors disturbing you. Being a considerate neighbor is the right thing to do, and with a privacy fence, it’s that much easier!

  • The Value of New Hampshire Privacy Fences

An attractive and well-built privacy fence may increase the value of your property in several ways. For starters, it may be a desirable amenity for future buyers. A border fence is likely to be appreciated by a prospective homebuyer, particularly in the backyard. If a buyer has children or pets, they will be relieved to see that the property already has a fence to keep their family safe. Not only that, but the aesthetic value of a privacy fence can provide you with a future selling advantage.


When you report the installation of the fence to your insurance carrier, New Hampshire privacy fences may also add value by lowering your homeowner’s insurance premium. Before arranging for the installation of

  • Define Property Boundaries With a New Hampshire Privacy Fence

A fence creates a clear-cut property boundary and without a fence, your Derry, NH property is more exposed to trespassers if the border isn’t properly defined.  Before beginning construction on your privacy fence, have a chat with any close neighbors who may be affected by your plans, and make sure you are aware of the legal restrictions for municipal setback lines and regulations determining what is allowed. It is a good idea to have a land surveyor mark your property lines. When you and your neighbors are clear about your property lines, you can avoid potential problems down the line. 


A New Hampshire privacy fence outlines exactly where your property begins and ends, and prevents your neighbors from encroaching on your land. It also gives you a great visual reference so you know how much space is remaining on your property if you are planning renovations or additions to your house.  You might want to add a swing set or pool for your kids, so knowing the size of your property will help you better determine the size of those amenities.

  • Protection for Plants and Landscaping with Privacy Fences

When choosing a fence, you also need to be sensitive to the impact that a fence can have on plants in a landscape. A solid privacy fence will provide shade that allows certain shade plants to thrive while making it hard to grow sun-loving plants. Only “loose and airy” fence designs, such as split-rail or certain post-and-rail fences, will not have some kind of “microclimate” effect on your landscaping or garden.


Privacy fencing is a great way to protect your property from the elements in New Hampshire too. When there’s a storm, your landscaping, plants and other outdoor furniture will benefit from the protection of a well-built New Hampshire privacy fence.

Material Options for New Hampshire Privacy Fences 

New Hampshire privacy fences are available in a variety of materials, styles, and levels of customization. Aluminum fences, chain-link fences, wood fencing, and vinyl fences all have options for improving your privacy that you will love.


For example, a vinyl privacy fence can survive strong winds and inclement weather without fading or warping because of its durable material design. Vinyl also boasts a clean, bright aesthetic, longevity, and requires very little maintenance. Just a gentle wash with a bucket of sudsy water and rinse with the hose will keep this durable fence looking brand new!


Chain link privacy slats come in several different colors, and they fit into the chain link gaps to increase the amount of view obstruction. A chain link privacy fence’s galvanized steel framing and composition have made it a popular choice for New Hampshire homes and businesses because of its long-term durability and minimal maintenance costs.


While aluminum fencing can provide a classic, beautiful aesthetic to your property with durability, strength, and low maintenance, they are not usually considered if privacy is your main concern.
