From an insurance perspective, homeowners and property owners will greatly benefit from installing a fence around the perimeter of their lot or yard. Underwriters and insurance carriers like fences because they provide security and are also helpful from a liability standpoint. The professionals at Allstar Fence & Deck can install fencing that fits the specific needs of any and all customers, especially when it comes to offering a protective barrier and boundary line.
A fence is a great asset to any property because it provides a barrier that can discourage trespassers and unwanted critters from entering a person’s yard or land lot. Fences can come in a variety of heights and locking mechanisms, which will go a long way in showing insurance carriers that a policyholder is proactive in keeping their property protected.
Many insurance claims are filed as a result of vandalism or theft to a property. The existence of a fence will lower the chances of a structure being burglarized or destroyed during a criminal act. Repair and replacement costs can lead to a costly insurance claim on top of unsafe feelings from being a victim of theft. A fence can provide security and a sense of relief!
Many insurance claims that are filed have to do with the issue of liability. Homeowners and landowners can be at fault if a person is on their property (even without permission) and gets harmed. Many liability cases end up in the courtroom in order to decide fault. Having that said, the installation of a fence on a property will go a long way in proving to judges and juries that the property owner was taking every precaution to keep unwanted visitors off of his or her land.
Fences also help to define property lines which can be good when neighbors try to install pools, tree houses, or additional structures. A fence that adequately follows the boundaries of one’s property will be a beneficial outline to the owners and others living nearby.
