A new fence installation is exciting for any homeowner, providing increased
privacy, property value, and aesthetic appeal. However, there are a few
considerations you’ll need to take into account before you can get
ready to enjoy a brand-new fence.
Reasons for Getting a Fence
If you’re after a “good neighbor” fence—a smaller,
often waist-height fence intended mostly for appearances—you may
want to consider synthetic materials like vinyl. A short wooden fence
is also a great choice for homeowners who enjoy the classic appearance
that natural wood offers. However, for security, you can’t beat
an iron or aluminum fence. Coated aluminum has the added bonus of being
corrosion-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about rust ruining
your new fence installation.
Level of Maintenance Required
Maintenance is another factor to consider. Wooden fences provide excellent
privacy and a beautiful appearance, though they do require more annual
care than other types of fencing. Vinyl fencing involves virtually no
maintenance, making it an ideal choice for busy homeowners who want to
enjoy the benefits of a fence without having to work to keep it in good shape.
The Lay of the Land
Before you proceed on installing your new fence, you’ll want to reference
the local building codes. You may also want to check with your homeowner’s
association and your neighbors to ensure that the process goes as smoothly
as possible. It can be beneficial to get a survey of your land to find
your property lines so that your new fence installation goes off without a hitch.
