Fencing will protect your landscaping and your family, give your home some major curb appeal, and increase your property value. Before you get ready to sign on the dotted line and begin the fence installation process, do you know everything that you should? Here are some tips that you should keep in mind as you look ahead to the fence installation process.
Why Do You Want a Fence?
First off, consider what your reason is for wanting to install a fence in the first place. Do you have a dog that you are looking to contain during the day? Are you looking to tune out your neighbor’s son when he has band practice at 8 PM on a weeknight? Chances are, there is more than one reason you want a fence. Make sure that you write all of your reasons down and take them into account when mulling over the various styles and types of fencing.
What Is Your Fence Made Of?
There are many materials to choose from when it comes to building your perfect fence, and all of them have different pros and cons. Wood fences require a decent amount of maintenance, but nothing compares to their beautiful aesthetics. Vinyl fencing can offer the look of wood and eliminate the maintenance. Other materials can include aluminum, steel, and wrought iron.
Research Your Options
Regardless of what you want, your homeowner’s association or county may have restrictions on what you can actually have. Be sure to research if there are any existing rules that will govern your fence’s appearance, material, or height. Check to determine how far back from the sidewalk and property lines your fence should be and whether or not you will need to obtain a building permit before starting installation.
