Adding a fence to your property presents a lot of advantages to your home. You can increase your security, your privacy, and even your property value by adding a fence. You could also customize your fence to make it the best aesthetic fit for your property, Before you make any of these choices about your fence, you need to take some initial steps.
Understand Property Lines
It’s important to make sure that you have a clear understanding of property lines before you have a new fence installed. These lines are invisible and in some cases, can be hard to discern given the existing landscape. You should check your home’s deed or property survey to find out where your land ends and your neighbor’s begins. If you can’t locate either of these documents, you should have a professional come to survey your land. Installing a fence on your neighbor’s property can lead to a lot of issues down the line, so it’s best to make sure that you respect property lines.
Establish Your Budget
Before you should have a fence installed, you should make sure that you have a budget in mind for the project. Your budget will determine a lot of factors that go into getting your fence, such as the material it’s made of and how much land it will cover. Establishing a budget should be one of the first things that you do when you’re thinking of having a fence installed. Let your contractor know what your budget is so they can help you get the most effective fence for your money.
Think About Its Purpose
Your fence’s purpose is another factor that you should think about before installing it. For example, if you’re looking for a fence to keep your dog in you’ll need to make sure that it’s high enough. If you need a privacy fence, you’re not going to want a chain-link fence since people will be able to see through it.
