We made a list of handy tips to help you when making decisions about your new fence installation.
- Verify your property lines: One of the most common mistakes that homeowners make when getting a new fence is not ensuring that there property is properly marked. You want to ensure that your fence is only on your property – not on your neighbor’s yard or public land – and that you are getting the full amount of yard that belongs to you.
- Check with your homeowner’s association: Are you in a neighborhood with restrictions imposed by an association? If so, it’s vital to make sure that your fence will meet all height, material, and color restrictions.
- Are there utility lines in your yard? No digging should take place until you are sure that your yard is free pipes or underground wires.
- Where should your gate be located? It’s important to determine if your gate will be in a functional place on your fence. Does it have enough room to properly open and close? Is there a grade that will affect it?
