You’ve always wanted a fence surrounding your home, and you’re finally ready to pick up the phone and call the contractor. Before you do, though, ask yourself a few questions. There are so many different types of fences it’s best to get an idea of which kind will be best for you and your family. Let’s take a look.

Fencing Materials

At Albaugh and Sons, we offer a variety of materials to build your dream fence from wood to composite. You may have always envisioned having a white picket fence, but consider the upkeep that comes with this particular material. Wood fences require occasional staining and sealing, and are a great choice for homeowners looking for a fun spring project. If you’d rather sit back once your fence has been installed, low-maintenance vinyl may be the better option.

Research Community Standards

If you live within a community, inquire with homeowners or the neighborhood association regarding rules that dictate fencing appearance, height, and material. If there are certain fence regulations within your community, your options may be limited.

Neighborly Conduct

In the same vein as the last point, do your best to be a good neighbor. If you share a property line with your neighbors, give them a call and let them know that you’re planning to have a fence built. They’ll appreciate the common courtesy.

Consider a Gate

If you plan to have your fence encompass the entirety of your property, consider having a gate built. A gate is not only an effective way to enter the property, but it’s a lovely accent that will increase the property value of your home.
