We all know that putting up a temporary construction fence is a requirement for many communities, but have you ever stopped to think about the added benefits of that temporary fence? Of course, the primary concerns are security and pedestrian safety, but let’s explore three extra benefits of that panel or post-driven fence.
We’ve all seen (and are occasionally guilty of) it; stacks of material and piles of debris move farther and farther from the project, and while not intentional, sometimes spill onto neighboring lots or into planters and foliage. Let’s remember the old adage, “good fences make good neighbors” on this one. Setting up a boundary with your post-driven or panel fence helps maintain order and contain construction happenings to the property permitted for the work, keeping relations with neighbors as positive as possible.
Hang Project Signage
While certainly true in commercial construction applications, many times residential builders also like to advertise their business and showcase renderings of what is to come on the lot under development. Whether it’s a banner, plastic, wood or metal sign, a temporary chain link fence is a quick way to put up a sign with a little baling wire. Just remember to take down your sign before the fence rental is picked up or it may be thrown out.
Privacy Before A Big Reveal
We offer post-driven and panel fence in 6 and 8′ heights, pair that with privacy screen and you have an excellent means of obscuring street-level viewing of the build. Whether or not it’s required in your community, privacy screen is an excellent way to keep your project under wraps until you’re ready to show it off.
Often temporary fences are thought of simply another requirement or checkbox to mark, but it’s important to recognize the potential of additional advertising and neighborhood relations and you can begin to think of temporary fence as an asset to your business; one that’s rolled into the cost of the project.

I thought it was so interesting how this post mentioned that temporary fences can act as free signage while the area is under construction. I’ve never thought of that benefit, before! I have see this a lot with major construction sites, though; why not get people excited for whatever is being build by advertising for it on the fence around it?
In your article, you stated that often temporary fences are thought of simply another requirement or checkbox to mark, but it’s important to recognize the potential of additional advertising and neighborhood relations and you can begin to think of temporary fence as an asset to your business. I can imagine that when you are building a building having a fence around the property could be very valuable. I wonder if construction companies use this technique for residential buildings as well as commercial buildings.
