A Guide To Temporary Fences When You Are Remodeling Your Home

As a homeowner planning to undertake a remodeling job at home, there are a variety of options to choose from when selecting temporary fencing to protect your construction project from nosy neighbors or passersby. If you are a fan of do-it-yourself projects  and are researching appropriate fencing for your home construction project, the following information about temporary fences will be very helpful.

Welded Wire Fences

Common concerns for homeowners during remodeling are often the cost of fencing and what to do with the fencing when the project is complete. Fortunately, welded wire fences are frequently a great choice, since it is often possible to rent them for just a brief period of time. It is important to note that welded wire is typically available in panels that can be connected together, so you will almost undoubtedly be able to create a fence that is the appropriate size for your needs.

In addition, welded wire is particularly useful for clearly identifying to everyone around that the area is under construction. As such, it can prevent passersby from entering the construction zone at your home.   

Plastic Fencing 

Plastic fencing is easy to recognize due to the fact that it is typically sold in obvious colors, including black, green or orange. The orange fencing has squares that are about two inches in size, while the black and green are solid. Although orange fencing can be favorably compared to chicken wire, it is better than chicken wire for many construction projects since the plastic will not rust, and the risk of injury on a sharp edge is greatly reduced. 

Plastic fencing is available in numerous sizes, so regardless of the size of the item you need to protect, you will probably find the right item for your specifications. Plastic fencing is a good choice for a temporary fence, but its coloring may fade over time. That means that if you plan to spend years updating or remodeling the exterior of your home, you might not want to use plastic fencing if its primary use will be to create a visual barrier to clearly identify an area for others to avoid. 

In conclusion, construction fencing is important for any building project, but can be even more so to the DIY homeowner who is remodeling part of a home. As a result, when you are determining which fencing option will be the most appropriate for your needs, it is a good idea to be aware of the information listed above.

Commercial Build-to-Suit Struggles: What You Should Know

One of the biggest challenges of leasing a retail space is the build-to-suit lease clause. If you're signing a lease on a commercial property, you need to understand what to expect from the planning and construction phases. The first time I signed a lease like this, I had no idea that there were some modifications that couldn't be made, leaving me with a building I couldn't do what I wanted with. I created this site to help others just like you understand what the process entails so that they can be fully prepared and avoid the mistakes that I made.
