Considering A Fenced In Yard Keep Pets In And Strangers Out

A fenced-in yard can certainly help keep pets in and strangers out. If you are considering investing in a fence, start by taking a moment to read this and let us know what you think. 

1. Research before you buyImage title
Your HOA or neighborhood organization could possibly have specific regulations about fence height, materials, colors as well as the specific distance between fence slats. Be sure you understand the rules prior to getting started. Also seek advice from your regional municipality and utility company to learn more about any buried cables and lines or required easements.

2. Consult the experts
Fencing your home may impact your home's appeal differently dependent upon your community, your home as well as your property. Speak with a realtor or an appraiser that knows your neighborhood market to help choose materials and where very best to place your fence. We have several companies we know that can help on this end. Getting advice from someone that does this for a living in very important step. 

3. Talk with your neighbors
Remember, they will look at the fence too. Consider letting the neighbors whose property borders yours be aware that you're considering about {constructing|building} a fence. Also, avoid future disputes by making sure you're all in complete agreement about property lines before adding the first post. Having a survey done if one was not already done when purchased can help on boundary lines. If this step is needed please give us a call, we have several Survey companies we can send your way for  bids.

Select a fence that goes together with the architectural design of your home. For example, you most likely do not want to build a burly stockade fence around your quaint Victorian, or a rustic post and rail fence around your spiffy modern home. This step can be useful especially if you consult a professional, they can show you several types of fence material that would enhance your home.
