Before you jump into your new fence installation project, it’s a good idea to arm yourself with useful knowledge. Do you know the zoning laws in your neighborhood? How do you make sure your fence is stable? Hercules Fence is here to make sure that your new fence installation goes smoothly.
The first step to installing a new fence is choosing what kind of fence you want. It’s helpful to know the required maintenance of each fence type before you invest your time, effort, and money into a new fence. For example, a wood fence is a classic choice that always looks great, but it does require seasonal maintenance to keep it from rotting or attracting pests like termites. If you’re okay with putting in the effort to keep your wood fence looking like new, then go ahead and have a wood fence installed! If you’d prefer not to have to think about your fence after it’s installed, then consider instead a vinyl or even a chain link fence. These types of fences are weather-resistant and will likely only require maintenance if they are damaged.
Your neighborhood may have strict laws about fence installation; it’s a good idea to talk to your local zoning board to find out exactly how high your fence can be, what materials it can be made of, and what colors it can be. It would be a shame to build a fence and then have to immediately take it down! You should also find out the exact property line, then build your fence about half a foot inwards of the line. This will ensure that none of your neighbors dispute your new fence.
Talk to Your Neighbor
Just as you should make sure that you’re not building your fence on the edge of your neighbor’s property, you should also make sure to tell your neighbor that you will be having a new fence installed. If you tell your neighbor exactly when your new fence installation will take place, they can make sure to spend some time away from the noise and commotion. This is a courtesy that your neighbor will appreciate.
