Building a Better Fence

Two Scenarios In Which You Should Opt For A Precast Screen Wall For Your Home

If you want to have a wall put up on your residential property and you can relate to either of these scenarios, you might want to have a precast screen wall erected instead of having one manually built on the property.

You need a large wall to be erected as fast as possible

If the wall you require has to be quite large and you would like to have it built very quickly (because, for instance, you have some nosy new neighbors and urgently need to block their view of your home), then you should hire a fence contractor who can fit a precast screen wall, instead of having a wall built on your property.

Because precast screen walls are usually made in a manufacturing facility, the only thing that the fence contractor will need to do when they arrive at your property is to install the wall. Even if the wall is fairly large, it could take them less than a day to erect it.

Conversely, if you hire a bricklayer or builder to physically construct a brick or concrete wall, brick by brick (or block by block), on your property, it might take them a week or more to do this. Furthermore, during this time, you couldn't even get a head start on attaching any decorative garden features to the sections of the wall that the trades-person had finished making, as you would have to wait a few days for the mortar to set before you could do this.

You want to ensure that the wall has no imperfections

If you have high standards and always aim to make every area of your property look perfect, then you should get the fence contractor to put up a precast screen wall instead of having one built. The reason for this is as follows; because precast screen walls are often made with the help of machinery in a manufacturing facility, they rarely, if ever, have the type of tiny-but-irritating flaws that are often present when a wall is made by hand.

Even if you were to hire a talented builder or bricklayer, the chances of them losing their concentration occasionally and, for example, using a little bit too much mortar on one brick, placing one concrete block on top of another at the wrong angle or failing to notice a crack in one of the bricks they've just laid, could be quite high (especially if the wall is large and requires hundreds of bricks or blocks to make). If you know that having to look at an imperfect wall every day will frustrate you, you should stick with a precast one.
