First Impressions Count

wall crumblingIn South Africa today, perimeter security is a major concern for homeowners, and if you are planning on selling your property then it is a very important point to keep in mind.

What is the first thing anyone sees when they approach your property?

Your boundary wall or fence.

First impressions count.   If your boundary wall is shabby, not properly maintained and is cracking or pealing, then it does not matter how well your house is maintained, the look of your boundary wall will be the impression indelibly printed in a potential buyer’s mind.

The impression will cause the potential buyer to believe that your house is not as well maintained as it appears to be.

It is best to repair or replace boundary walls before putting your property on the market.  That way you are assured of a much better price and an easier sale.

Your boundary wall or fence should always enhance and add to the aesthetic beauty of your property.  

Potential buyers will also be keeping their eye on the security value of the boundary wall or fence.  Your fencing or walling should not look distinctly inferior in any way to any of your neighbours.

This is when keeping up with the Joneses is an effective route to follow.  Security is important, so your walling or fencing should show that it is a priority for you too.  

It is always a good idea to go out of your property to take a really long hard look at your property to get the real street view of where your property stands in the security and aesthetic beauty of the area.

If all your neighbours have electric fencing and palisades and you do not, it will be immediately noticeable to potential buyers.  You do not want your property to stick out like a sore thumb.

Many property owners have chosen to raise their walls or fences by adding electric fencing or palisades to existing structures.  This enhances the security and is also aesthetically pleasing.

Precast Concrete Retaining Walls

stone retaining wallEven though stone or brick are the traditional style for retaining walls, you need to ask the question:

Are these really the best materials for the job?

The whole purpose of a retaining wall in residential areas is to correct the natural slope of the ground.   You need a level area for gardening.

Retaining walls need a huge amount of strength, endurance and also be weather resistant. This enables you to have a lot more use of your property.

Over the years as concrete retaining walls came into being, it may be the best material for the job.

addingcolourLet us take a look at some advantages:

1.    Choice:   You can choose between 3 basic structures.  concrete blocks, precast concrete panels, or poured-in-place concrete.
2.    Strength:   Concrete is extremely strong.
3.    Durability:   Concrete walls often last for a century or more.
4.    Ease of Installation:  Usually faster and easier to install than labour intensive masonry structures.
5.    Aesthetic Beauty:   Colour can be added during the manufacturing process so that you have a long lasting beautiful wall.
6.    Low Maintenance:   Cleaning about once a year, plus checks for cracks or wear and tear which are easily repaired.
7.    Affordability:  As the cost is mid-range, it gives you an outstanding cost-benefit ratio.

The only disadvantage of Concrete Retaining walls is that it is NOT a feasible do-it-yourself project.

Your best option in all respects is to get a professional to install your walls with effective support and adequate draining.

Safety First

Microphonic Sensor CableDue to excessive crime in South Africa, most homes are guarded by strong, sturdy walls.  Many people have taken the added protection by having razor wire, electric fencing or palisade fencing added to their perimeter walls.

A strong, sturdy perimeter wall or fence CAN act as a deterrent and be off-putting to would-be intruders.

There are many different walls and fences to choose from, so it is always a good idea to discuss your requirements with a highly trained professional to get the best security for your family and property.

It is not only your residence which is constantly at risk, businesses are having to constantly update their security to cope with innovative criminals. Adding electric fencing correctly, plus cameras and fibre optic cable intrusion detection sensors will greatly add to the security of your home or business, as an intruder climbing over your fencing, or even cutting through it to gain access will be detected and sound the alarm, alerting you and your security company of potential danger.

Fibre optic cables can be easily attached to most types of fencing, and will monitor zones of up to 1,000m.

thorny plant cactiAnother aid is to ensure that a good foundation on which your fencing or walling is erected is strong and deep enough to discourage anyone digging under it to gain access.

Make sure that there are no climbing aids near your perimeter fence, like overhanging tree branches, or dustbins.

Cut back any branches potential intruders can use to access your property, and never plant high shrubs close to your walls or fences, as this offers a place for intruders to hide.

If you do decide you want shrubbery near your walls or fences, make sure you use something with thorns like roses, Bougainvillea, Crown of thorns, Firethorn and many more.   Do your homework on these plants,and see which would offer you added security as well as aesthetic beauty if that is what you would like.

Peace of Mind

palisade securityWith crime escalating daily in South Africa, we do need extra security, unlike our European counterparts in other parts of the world.

Palisade is a very good option as it offers no place to hide if the area on both sides of the fence is kept free of any obstruction like trees or shrubs that would offer a hiding place to would be intruders.

A good idea for palisade is to have a concrete apron or base at the base of the palisade fence to prevent the possibility of someone digging underneath to gain access.

You also have the option to have palisade fencing fitted on top of a concrete or brick wall.
If you do have shrubs, hedges or trees close to the fence to give yourself privacy, always remember that you are also giving privacy to anyone who has entered your property illegally.

If security is your priority, then choosing wisely is a real must.  At Country Wide Walling we have professional consultants who will gladly assist you with making the correct choice for your needs.

Pallisade home protectionAs crime is out of control and the police force not able to prevent crime, the onus is on the property owner to do whatever is necessary to make their property less attractive to would be criminals.
