Building A Fence-Things You Should Know

Are you considering building a new fence?

Well, you would not be alone. Nearly a quarter of the residential homes in the United States now enjoy some sort of fence on their property.

So why are fences so popular?

There are many reasons, but let's go over just a few. First, they can be used to mark the property lines around your home. Secondly, they can be used to contain and keep children and pets safe from the outside world. Thirdly, they can be utilized to create a private atmosphere. And lastly, fences can be built to add value to a home and make it more attractive.

Whatever your reason is for investing in a new fence, here are a few important tenets to keep in mind before purchasing and installing:

*Check the building codes: Every community has different building codes. Contact the courthouse in your area to become familiar with restrictions including height, setbacks, easements, and other factors before building. A reputable fence company will take care of this for you.
*Check the property lines: On the survey that came with your home, make sure to check the property lines as this could be a disaster if build on your neighbors land.
*Inform your neighbors: It is always a good idea to tell your neighbors what you are planning out of common courtesy.
*Pick a style: There are a ton of fencing styles to choose from these days. Pick the one that best matches your architectural style of the home and of course fits your budget. Some of the choices include: wood, chain link, PVC, Aluminum, and Steel.

Now, that you have completed the steps listed above, it is time to choose a fence company. Although there will be many choices in the majority of communities, it is vital to do extensive research before buying your fence.

Select a fence company that has been in business for many years and is established with many customers who are satisfied. Check online reviews at websites such as Yelp to ensure the company has happy reviewers. Finally, speak directly to someone at the company and have a list of appropriate questions handy including costs, installation time, and work guarantees. If you are not satisfied with the answers, cross that company off the list and move on to the next one.
