For many homeowners, improving their property is a necessary part of ownership. Not only can renovations and upgrades deliver a better quality of life, but they can also increase the home’s resale value.
Many individuals tend to focus on interior projects, like updating the kitchen and bathrooms. However, one of the simplest and most effective methods of adding property value is to install a fence.
A new fence can be a valuable investment. At JDH Decks and Fencing, we help Savannah residents get the results they want with prompt and reliable service. Before starting on your new project, be sure to call us.
One of the challenges of building a new fence is knowing what new home buyers will want. Because there are many different reasons for putting up fencing, the benefits will differ from project to project. Here are the most common reasons why a fence on your property will be a good investment.

Depending on where you live in Savannah, you may have plenty of space around your house, or you might be close to multiple neighbors. While the Georgia heat makes outdoor activities more pleasant, many homeowners don’t want nosy strangers peeking into their backyard. Privacy fences can provide peace of mind as well as add aesthetic value to the property.
Fences can be a valuable addition to any yard because they serve as a way to establish boundaries and prevent little ones or pets from running off. With the right fence around the back and front yards, homeowners can let their children and pets roam freely with minimal supervision.
Owning a pool can come in handy during the hot and humid Georgia summers. However, pools can be dangerous, and Georgia law requires fencing around them. Whether your property has a built-in pool or you decide to install one, you have to make sure that it’s protected. At JDH Decks and Fencing, we specialize in pool fences, and we know the law.
Finally, fences don’t have to serve as barriers; they can also add style and class to your property. Decorative fences can increase a home’s curbside appeal without being too expensive. Some examples of decorative designs can include lattice fences around a garden or a picket fence with a gate.
Ideally, new fencing will increase your home’s property value enough to earn a profit. However, because the return on investment (ROI) of a fence can vary between projects, there is little data to confirm how much you can potentially make with this type of project. A new fence is a valuable investment, provided that it’s not too expensive. Here is a quick breakdown of fencing materials and their average cost per foot.
Many homeowners like the practicality of wood because it works for almost all situations. Wood can be cut and shaped however you like, making it one of the most versatile materials. Also, by staining and painting the wood, you can lower the maintenance and upkeep costs over the long term.
While this material is a bit pricier, it does hold up better in Georgia weather. At JDH Decks and Fencing, we offer high-quality vinyl pieces that can withstand the hot summer sun for years. Best of all, vinyl posts and beams can replicate the look of wood grain for an even better aesthetic.
If you’re looking for the lowest upkeep cost, aluminum fencing is the best choice. Also, if you need a new fence around a pool, we highly recommend this material. Aluminum fences are not only rugged, but they look good and add instant curb appeal. However, due to the higher price, it might not be ideal for large areas.
While the cost per foot does include installation, some properties may have unique elements that can inflate the total. For example, if you have trees along the property line, they may have to be trimmed or removed.
Fortunately, Georgia clay is easy to dig into, but if there are boulders or rocks along the pathway, they can be a pain to work around. Finally, if your property is sloped, the degree of incline can affect the installation process and potentially add to the estimate.
