Default Privacy fencing?

Why do so many people (at least a lot of people in SC) put up privacy fencing so that the outside looks like this:



It always bothers me a tiny bit when I see a house with it since it's like wearing clothes inside out. Do these people not realize it makes their property look worse? Also, in SC, it's technically illegal to put up a privacy fence like this since it detracts from the appearance of the neighboring properties, though I've never known it to be enforced.

I'd guess they want to look out at it and see the face side instead of the frame side.

I don't really agree with the assessment that it detracts from neighboring properties though.

I mean in the sense the property that has the fence isn't as attractive as if the fencing had been installed facing the correct direction.

My neighbor didn't want to use my fence because she didn't want see the back side. So they had a fence installed as well so She could see the finished side.

Wait, I'm not sure I understand you. Are you saying your fence is installed facing the wrong direction, and since your neighbor didn't want to see what's supposed to be the inside part, she had one installed in reverse as well?

yes, you see this often in the 'burbs...two "inside out" privacy fences with a 3 ft or so gap in between them

I understand what you're saying, I just don't agree with it. Now, if the fence is missing sections, rotting, etc then I would agree.

Kind of makes me glad the only fences in my neighborhood are chain link, even if it's not as attractive as a privacy fence. Actually, because of the restrictions on the land my neighborhood is on, it's not realistic to have a privacy fence unless it's for a specific area like around a pool.

Yep. my left side is facing right and my right side is facing right. So if I look to the left I see a nice smooth fence. If I look to the right I see the back side. have no idea why it was built that way. How it was when I got here. Maybe I need to have one side redone

Default Re: Privacy fencing?

In our town, we have and ordinance that privacy fences must be pretty side out....only reason I know is that our backyard neighbor did not do this and my next door neighbor asked me to join a lawsuit against the fence owner. I did not feel it bad eough to sue him but we did ask him to change it when he could afford to do so....he built it less than 18 inches from my wrought iron fence...let's just say I don't exactly point my sprinklers away from his fence and I planted holly bushes to hide it

Another reason for putting the pretty side out is security. It is harder for someone to climb over if the cross supports are inside the fenced area.

That and it is just common decency.

Finished side must be exposed to neighbors is the general rule.

Or...get vinyl and you don't have this issue *plus* you don't have to replace it in 10 years.

If the neighbor really wanted to make a point, they would have used the opportunity to save money by nailing their fencing to the other's framework.

Yes, good point. Especially if a pool is involved.

I did not realize that there was a problem with the good side being to the inside of properties, as here all that I ave seen has the good side facing out. I wonder why you couldn't just add boards to the bad side to make it more appealing.

That really is odd. I wouldn't worry too much about it if it doesn't bother you and your neighbors don't have a problem with it since it was already like that when you moved in.

I have that same wooden privacy fencing. it is pretty side out. The beams on the inside make it easier to train plants to.
