What To Do Before Installing A Fence

Fence Installation Steps

Make sure to take these steps before having a fence installed.

Installing a fence around your property provides a lot of benefits. Not only are you getting more privacy and security when you have a fence installed, but you’ll also be getting a boost in curb appeal if your fence complements the rest of your property well. However, it’s important that you take some steps before your fence is even installed to ensure it’ll be effective. Here are the three steps you should take before having a fence installed around your home.

Identify Property Lines

Before you start installing a fence, you need to make sure that you have a good understanding of the property lines around your home. Sometimes it can be hard for you to see where your property ends and your neighbor’s begins. This is especially true because property lines are invisible and sometimes they’re not obvious. The best way to find what the property lines are your home is to look at your home’s deed. If you are unable to locate it, then you should have a professional surveyor come to your property to take a look at it. This step is essential. Neglecting it could result in you having a fence installed on your neighbor’s property and having to take it down.

Create A Budget

It’s vital for you to come up with a budget for your fence installation project because doing so will help dictate several factors, from the material you’ll be able to use to the amount of fencing you’ll be able to get. Think of your budget not as a limiting factor but as a helpful guide that’ll allow you to make other decisions about your new fence easier. Let your contractor know what your budget is and they’ll be able to make suggestions about the best fence for you.

Know Its Purpose

Your fence’s purpose will determine what type of material you’ll use, how tall it’ll be, and several other factors. Make sure you establish a purpose early so you can get the best fence for your home. All fence types have pros and cons and depending on the purpose you’re trying to meet, you’ll find that some are more effective than others.
