Slidell Fencing owner discusses fencing as a home security measure.
As crime rates continue to rise, many New Orleans metro area residents are looking for ways to increase the security of their homes and businesses. One solution is adding fencing. I spoke with the owner of Slidell Fencing, a New Orleans Spotlight award winner, about the benefits of having a fence around your property.
According to the owner, there are several reasons why fencing is an effective way to improve home security. For one, fences provide a physical barrier that can deter criminals from attempting to break into your home. Additionally, fences can help you keep track of who is coming and going from your property, which can be helpful in preventing crime. Fences also add value to your home and can make it more aesthetically pleasing.
According to Leon Wetzel,(owner/operator of 30 years) fencing is an often-overlooked measure of home security. Wetzel, who opened the business in 1992, said that fences provide a physiological barrier as well as a physical barrier that can deter criminals.
“Property crime is often based on opportunity. Any barrier you can add will lessen the chance of someone accessing your residence or business. By establishing a perimeter fence you can add a level of deterrence that will encourage criminals to seek an easier target,” Wetzel said.
Wetzel also stressed the importance of keeping your fencing in good condition. “If a fence is not maintained, it can actually become a liability and provide easy access into the property,” he said.
