Your home is your castle, the place where you go to relax and spend quality time with your family. Installing a fence around your home can help protect your possessions from potential burglars, and can greatly increase your family’s privacy. Fences are available in many different styles and materials, so it is important to do your research before you decide on the right kind of fence for your home. Keep reading to learn how a fence will ensure your family’s privacy.
Decide On Your Goals If increased privacy is your only goal, then it will be easy to choose a fence. However, it is a good idea to consider aesthetics and the way your fence will blend in with your neighborhood when you pick a style. If you are only concerned with passers-by looking in your yard, then you may not need a high fence. On the other hand, if you want to protect your yard as well as the interior of your home from prying eyes, a taller fence is probably a better idea. Pick a fencing material that goes with its surroundings, and then decide how tall you would like it to be.
Decide On Area Now that you know what purposes your fence will serve, you can decide where exactly you want your fence to be. Some homeowners prefer their entire lots to be fenced in—front, back, and sides—while others are more concerned with specific areas. Oftentimes, simply fencing off the front of the house will provide enough privacy for you and your family. There are cases where the placement of your home in relation to neighboring homes lets residents see directly into the house. In these instances, some people prefer to erect a barrier to prevent snooping and to feel more relaxed in the privacy of their own homes.
Call Cal-State Site Services, Inc. at (888) 440-6122 to learn more about installing a privacy fence around your home. We offer a variety of fencing styles that are sure to fit with your Simi Valley-area home.

Construction sites may not be open to the public, but that does not mean that trespassers won’t make their way onto the property by mistake or in an attempt to obtain valuable tools. Despite the area being off-limits to others, a construction company may still be held liable for any injuries sustained by trespassers that took place if the company failed to take certain precautionary methods. Keep reading for some great tips on improving the safety of your construction site and limiting the risk of injury to trespassers.
Install Fences and Barricades Installing a sturdy, high-standing fence is a great way to keep pedestrians and children out of a construction site. However, you may consider investing in a barbed wire, razor wire, or wrought iron fence rather than a traditional chain-like or post-driven fence, because these materials are better suited to keep potential thieves away.
Mark Off Potential Hazards Hazard signs and barricades are essential components of any safe construction area. Installing barricades around holes and trenches will not only help prevent injury to trespassers but will also help to ensure the safety of your employees.
Store Materials and Tools Many construction workers leave their tools on-site rather than trying to take the materials home each night. It is important to keep all tools and materials stored in a secure area within the construction site during off-hours, as this will reduce the risk of injury in the event that an unauthorized individual accidentally or knowingly enters the area.
You can help ensure your construction site does not pose a safety threat to pedestrians, passersby, and trespassers by contacting Cal-State Site Services Inc. in Simi Valley at (888) 440-6122 today. We are your resource for temporary fences of barbed wire and razor wire, wrought iron fencing, barricades, and portable toilets.

When most of us think of fences, our first thought is likely to be of the traditional chain link or wooden picket fences commonly used around construction sites and homes. Today, there are many different types of fences and fencing materials—many of which differ greatly from the first man-made barriers. This article will take a closer look at the history of the fence.
Origin The first fences were created as a way to set boundaries and outline the parameters of one’s property. In the 7th century B.C., the second king of Rome stated that each man should create a boundary around his land using stone markers, which would not only be used to outline one’s possessions, but also to worship the god Terminus as thanks for the Roman victory over the Latinians and Sabines who had previously occupied the land.
Growth and Development The idea of the fence was later adapted by medieval Europe in the 12th century, when Burgundian law stated that any lands given by the king were to be marked by definite boundaries, and that anyone guilty of removing the boundaries would lose their hand. However, many fences were created not only with the intention to mark one’s property, but also to keep the property safe from damage. For example, the King of Wessex, England created fences during the 7th century as a way to protect crops from being destroyed by roaming cattle.
Modern Advancements The fences used today serve a wide variety of purposes, from marking the property line for residences and businesses to keeping the area safe from trespassers or burglars. Fences may also be used to navigate street traffic near roadside construction sites, street fairs, and major events such as concerts.
Whether you are remodeling your front or back yards, preparing for a large gathering, or trying to keep a construction site closed to the public, fence rental may be the perfect solution.
