Modern fence – impressive appearance and functionality

The designer will help you choose fencing panels, posts and walls that would match the building and look good together. In addition to the visual aspects, the designer will also take care of the selection of all additional elements to make the fence practical and functional. The appropriate location and selection of the gate type is particularly important. After all, each of us wants to make entering and leaving the property always a pure pleasure. We all know that there are double-leaf and sliding gates, but it turns out that each of these types has different variants. Mechanical elements are also important in every fence, for example, gate automation, which should be properly selected taking into consideration the weight of the gate leaf and the type of the ground. The fence design can also include all types of roofing, eg a separate space with trash bins, a storage space for wood and tools, or even a garden relax zone. Visual coherence is very important, so it is worth thinking about this type of solutions when planning a fence. The designer is also there to discourage solutions that for some reason will not work in a given place. The sliding gate looks very impressive, but it may not be suitable for a sloping plot. It is better to abandon it when designing the fence, than to find out when assembling.

Difficult technical problems

A good designer is up to date with current trends, but is also familiar with the selection of appropriate materials and technical solutions. Before starting construction, you should ask yourself a lot of difficult questions, and the answers to all of them should be included in the finished project. Underpinning or maybe a foundation? If you choose the foundation, how deep it should be? Would a partial be enough or should you go for the entire length of the fence? What concrete should it be made of? Will a retaining wall be necessary on a slope? Using the services of the designer relieves you of responsibility for many difficult decisions and minimizes the risk of errors that may involve significant costs in the future. There is a saying: “The spare pays twice”. After all, an improperly made fence can crack or skew, and nobody will repair it for free.

Evaluate the appearance of the fence and make changes

It is difficult for many people to imagine what a ready fence will look like, so they have problems with choosing materials or colors. An undoubted advantage of the project is the fact that the final visual effect can be seen and evaluated even before the first works start. The designer uses professional software to create 2D and 3D visualizations for you. Sometimes it may turn out that the selected colors or materials do not match each other or they look bad in combination with the facade of the building. The visualization will also allow you to see what the selected additional elements will look like, such as a letterbox, house number or entrance roofing. The designer can also suggest suitable lighting for the fence, which will further enhance its appearance after dark. If it turns out that you do not like the effect, you can apply changes and even see and compare several color variants of the same fence during the consultation with the designer. After all, the most important is the certainty that you invest hard earned money exactly in the solutions you are looking for.

What does the fence design include

We write about the advantages of creating a fence project, but what should you find in it? A good design should contain all relevant technical specifications that are necessary for the correct assembly of fences and additional elements by any construction team. First of all, it will include the dimensions of fencing panels and walls as well as the location of gates and wickets. Another important information is the location and depth of the foundations and dilatation, the proper selection of which is crucial for the durability of the entire structure. Any additional elements, such as a letterbox, roofing or lighting, should also be included in the fence design. It is also important design the location of the wiring necessary for electrical devices, eg lamps, intercom or gate automation.
