What To Do Before Your Fence Installation

What To Do Before Your Fence Installation

Fence Installation is a worthy investment, but make sure you take these steps beforehand.

Having a fence installed is a complicated process, but with Albaugh & Sons it’s made easy. It’s an exciting moment when your fence is completed and you can admire the privacy, and the beauty it brings to your overall landscape. However, before you reach completion, there are a few steps you need to take prior to beginning. Following these necessary tips will ensure a smooth process.

Do A Self-Evaluation

Before installing a fence (or anything really), make sure you understand why you’re installing it. This is because your reasoning can lead you to a certain style of fencing. It will also impact the height and thickness of your fence. Are you aiming for privacy? Is it to cooperate with the pool code and surrounding it with a fence? Are you going for an aesthetic appeal? There are plenty of questions to ask and answer.

Look Into The Property Lines

A crucial aspect of fence installation is knowing exactly where your property line is located. You can install or do anything up to the point, but do not go over it. If you do, you run the risk of irking your neighbors, which may end up costing you in the long run (and creating an unhappy neighbor). There are plenty of ways you can go about finding your property line. The easiest is to find your property deed or the survey you received when purchasing the home. If either of those fail, you can always go to the county office to get the exact measurements. In addition to this task, you should also make sure to follow the correct codes, and obtain any necessary permits. Depending on where you are installing your fence, you should also be aware of the height maximums, as you do not want to exceed any limitations and get fined.

Alert Your Neighbors

It’s a simple task, but you should always keep your neighbors in the loop if you plan on installing a fence. It’s just a common courtesy, as construction will be ongoing, whether you plan on hiring a contractor or doing it yourself.


Make sure you check for utility lines before beginning anything. You do not want to cause damage to them, or anything underground. That would be a worst-case scenario, so be sure to take the proper precaution.
