Did you just purchase a new home? Or perhaps you’d just like to enhance the look and function of your landscape, and you’ve decided that installing a residential fence would be the best solution. There are many styles, materials, colors, heights, and ornaments that you can choose from, so having some guidance could help with your search. Follow these tips for finding and installing a new, awesome residential fence.
Build Your Budget
Every home improvement project starts with money. Sit down and open your books to decide how much you’d like to invest in a new fence. Materials and labor can be expensive, and if your yard is large, this could substantially increase the cost of the installation. Estimate the value of the project based on the size of your property and the type of materials you think you’ll want to use, based on your style. If you’re going to think long-term, you may also want to consider the possible maintenance costs over the years.
Set Your Priorities
What are your priorities and requirements for your new fence? Is it for safety or security purposes, or would you like to allow your pet the freedom to play in your yard, without a leash? Would you like to add some privacy to your landscape? Having an idea of what purposes the fence will serve helps you narrow down the style that will work best for you. Speaking of style, you can begin this decision-making process by choosing between a traditional look, modern lines, or the glamor of adding decorative elements.
Remember Your Restrictions
Now that you have an estimate for your budget, a purpose for your fence, and some design inspiration, there’s something else to you need to remember. Before getting started with the project, you must consider if there are any neighborhood restrictions on your installation. Some cities and neighborhood associations have guidelines that you’ll have to follow, including maximum height. Violating these guidelines will result in you having to pay fines and spend even more money to ensure that your fence follows these regulations.
