What Every Property Manager Should Consider When Choosing to Install a Fence
Property management can be very rewarding, but it is not without its challenges. Whether you manage just one commercial property or large list of properties across Toronto, you will always be on the lookout for potential issues. Safety and security are two of the most important components of a successful property. If you are thinking about installing commercial fencing, be sure to take the time to choose a company that will do it right the first time.
WHY SHOULD I INVEST IN COMMERCIAL FENCING?Installing a fence around your commercial property will also benefit you as a manager. You spend a lot of time enhancing the appeal of your building and outside property, which is why you should secure these spaces. You can place fences around open yards, parking lots, storage areas, swimming pools, basketball courts and office complexes. By putting up a fence you can:
- Reduce liability for any swimming pools that may exist within your facility
- Protect visitors’ and tenants’ vehicles by fencing off parking lots
- Adding a sense of security for occupants of your properties
- Closing off open yards so that you can accommodate any occupants that will be on the premises with pets and children
- Increasing security for storage areas and ensuring only occupants or authorized personnel can enter those areas
- Preventing crime, especially if your property is located in a densely populated urban area, where crime rates generally tend to be higher
WHAT SHOULD I CONSIDER WHILE DOING RESEARCH?
If you are in the market for a new fence for your commercial property, there are a few things you need to consider:
Fence Security – How secure is the fence? What options are available for securing gates and what heights can you ensure to prevent someone from jumping over the fence and accessing the property?
Maintenance and Repair – As a property manager, you you’re likely interested in solutions that require little to no maintenance. Not all fences are easy to maintain and some require more care each year than others. Ask your Toronto fencing contractor what annual maintenance is required and see how that factors into your regular property maintenance plans. Understanding this will also help you with budgeting and narrow down your options for fencing materials. Also, do not forget about repairs. Some fences may be more costly to repair than others. Lastly, see if the company that installs your fence offers maintenance and repair services; thus saving you the hassle of finding another vendor. At City Fence, we provide maintenance and repairs on all of the fences we install, and uphold exceptional standards for quality on all of our materials.
Aesthetics – While increasing the security of your property, remember to also consider the aesthetic appeal of your location. Our contractors will walk you through the different styles that are available and will put together speciality options that fit your budget and property requirements, all while keeping aesthetics in mind.
Durability – There is no point investing in a fence if you cannot maximize the investment period. The durability of a fence does not just come down to the materials that are used; it also depends on the quality of the installation. We take pride in the quality of our fence installations for Toronto properties and guarantee that all work will be done by our own staff. We never contract our work out, so you can rest assured that installations will be precise and done by professionals.
