Ask Yourself Why You Need a Fence
Some homeowners want one because of extra added privacy and security. Others wish to one to add value to their home because they’re planning on selling sometime in the future. One thing to note is that if you’re looking to sell your home, a privacy fence may not be the best choice. You want your home to look transparent and open. However, if you have young children and pets and don’t plan on selling your home, then a privacy fence is the best way to go. Wood is one of the most popular choices, then comes vinyl. If you’re looking for aesthetic appeal, you can pretty much pick any material, but picket fences give a home that “All-American” feel. Wood along with PVC are picket materials.
Consider Fence Maintenance
While all fences have their benefits, one leaning factor could be the maintenance. Regarding low-maintenance fences, vinyl, wrought iron, and galvanized chain link are very durable. Aluminum also requires little upkeep. These options are very cost-effective and easy to replace. If wooden material is your preference, some low-maintenance options are pine, fir, spruce wood, cedar and cypress, and redwood. When in doubt, do research about sealing and staining or just give us a call. We’ll answer your questions!
Research Your HOA
You want to make sure that you have clearance before fence installation happens. Depending on your contract, your options may be limited. You don’t want to waste time or money. You also want to clear it with your neighbor and make sure that you both agree about where your property line is. A survey is a full-proof way to do so.
