When you plan a new fence installation, you will have many factors to consider
before you can find the perfect
new fence for your home. Your fence installation contractor can help you choose
between fencing materials, such as a wooden fence, vinyl fence, chain
link fence, or aluminum fence, and also decide what type and style of
fencing is right for your needs. Here is some need-to-know information
about fence installation that will help you on your fencing project.
Determine the Purpose of Your Fence
Before choosing fencing materials and styles, you must determine your
fence’s purpose. An ornamental fence installation is primarily decorative,
and can enhance the beauty of your architectural and landscape design.
A privacy fence installation can enhance your home’s security, protect
your belongings, and provide privacy from passers-by. A dog-proof fence
installation will keep your pets safe in your yard, and keep other animals out.
Choose the Right Fencing Materials
You have many options for fencing materials, and the materials you choose
will depend upon the purpose of your fence installation, your budget,
and your personal aesthetic preferences. Wooden fences are classic, attractive,
and sturdy, but will need regular wooden fence repairs and maintenance.
Metal fences, such as aluminum fences and chain-link fences, are durable,
low-maintenance, and practical. PVC fences and vinyl fences are affordable,
durable, low-maintenance, and stylish.
Investigate Your County Fence Installation Regulations
Your county or city might have specific rules you need to follow regarding
fence installation. For example, you must find out how tall you can build
your privacy fence or dog-proof fence. You’ll also need to know
how far away it must be from adjacent properties, city sidewalks, and
streets. A good fencing contractor will help with these and other logistics.
