The property market is not the best at the moment, yet there are still a lot of people trying to sell their houses. However many aren’t getting the viewings or if they are lucky enough to have a viewing, many still don’t have any buyers. When selling a property, homeowners concentrate all of their efforts on the interior of their home, however when a potential buyer first comes for a viewing, the first thing they will see will be the outside of the house.
When you meet someone for the first time, their first impression of you is normally the indication of whether they like you and want to continue a conversation. The same applies with a property. If it doesn’t look appealing on the outside, many won’t want to bother going inside. Continue reading →Posted in News | Tagged Pittaway Fencing | Comments Off 28/02/2013
In recent years we’ve all learned of humans’ impact on wildlife and it’s sad to say that this impact certainly hasn’t been positive. We’ve seen television programs, documentaries and adverts urging us to do our bit to protect our wildlife and make a change; of course, a lot of the time this is easier said than done and it’s difficult to know where to start.
Here at Pittaway Fencing we understand how important our British wildlife is and we have developed our Newt Fencing to give you the necessary facilities to protect endangered Newts, Amphibians and Reptiles in your area.

The curb appeal of a property lies in the appearance of its exterior. The concept of curb appeal is to simply improve the visual appearance of as home to attract potential buyers or to simply make your home more attractive. Everyone spends time decorating the inside of their home with colourful walls, matching curtains, stylish furniture and complementing accessories. But improving the exteriors of a home is equally as important as the interiors and here’s how you can do it.
When you have an area that belongs to you, the best way to claim it is to build a fence around it. With the help of a fence you can add an element of decoration to your exterior whilst giving yourself an idea of how much space you have to improve your curb appeal with, it also helps make the partition between your property and your neighbours. Fences can be made more attractive with, wood, wrought iron, hedges, and plants growing on them to add an attractive touch.
When you have more space outdoors than you use, the best thing to do is to turn it into a garden. Flower beds, ornamental plants, vegetable gardens. Fountains, lawns and benches are just some of the things you could incorporate into a garden. Even though gardens need regular maintenance the curb appeal that it brings is most definitely worth the effort.
Patios are a two in one investment; you get a brilliant garden and a comfortable level seating area. You can use a patio to place a barbecue, furniture, fountains, potted plants and many more accessories on a patio.
Painting & Cleaning
Like the interior walls in the house the exterior walls also need to be painted and kept clean. The most basic tip is clean and wash the outer walls of the house. If you already had a fence then you could try repainting that as well to add uniformity to your exterior. Choose a colour that will match the exterior of the house, neutral and dark colours work best because they are subjected to the changing weather conditions.
Here at Pittaway Fencing we are experienced, professional fencing contractors. We specialise in domestic and commercial fencing in Oxford and the surrounding areas. With a vast range of fences to choose from we will have the one to meet your needs. Whether it’s for security or aesthetics make us your first port of call.

Businesses of all kinds are susceptible to break in’s, robberies and criminal activities at the best of times, but with the economic climate the way it is and the dark mornings and evenings setting in, businesses are more at risk at being hit by criminal activity at this time of year.
It’s vital that you ensure your business is safe by maintaining high security standards; it only takes one small oversight to see your business in jeopardy because of criminal activity. You can rest assured that with these top tips your business will be much more secure.
One of the most important security measures is to put fencing around the perimeters of your building; this creates a barrier between your business and the intruder. Possible intruders will be put off by high fencing as it makes your building look more secure. Your security fencing is the first level of security that an intruder or opportunist will come across and it may well be enough to put them off. Preventing easy access to your premises is the first step, and perhaps the most important in securing your property.
Having some form of alarm or camera on sight may seem obvious, but it’s these kinds of essentials that many businesses forget. If you don’t have CCTV or alarms on your business premises it is worth considering getting some installed, if you do have these security measures in place already then it’s vital they are checked regularly for maximum security 24/7. It may also be worthwhile thinking about having a quick alarm response so that when it goes off it instantly alerts the authorities or you as the business owner.
If you hold high valued items on your premises, security codes on doors, safes, warehouses could be very beneficial. For that added level of security make sure you change your code on a regular basis so that the code doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
If you’re concerned CCTV may not be enough, hire a security guard. Often thieves are deterred when they see someone in the building. Some also offer key holding services, so they can open up first thing in the morning and lock up in the evenings.
Keeping the exterior of your building well lit up. Good lighting is vital and gives any intruder less places to hide. It also makes sure that if you were to encounter an intruder the CCTV image would be much clearer, making it easier to identify them. Also make sure you keep trees and bushes cut back as much as possible to ensure there are no sneaky hiding places on your premises.
Although putting all your security measures into place may seem like a costly procedure, getting it to the highest standard as quick as possible could save you a whole heap of worries and money in the future. It makes you, your building and your employee’s safe and secure.
