Many homeowners assume that assembling a new fence is simple. However, this project is not really something that is easy to accomplish. Putting it on a honey-do list isn’t enough. You will probably need to consult fence experts on what to do next. That’s why Hercules Fence of Virginia Beach is here to help you avoid making some common mistakes!
Failing to Find the Property Line
When it comes to installing a new fence, the most important step is to determine where your property line is. If you don’t do this, it is one of the mistakes you can. After all, you run the risk of upsetting your neighbor or neighbors. After all, assuming is the lowest form of human knowledge. Don’t fall for that trap. Find out where the line is and ensure that the new fence isn’t built out-of-bounds. That’s because your neighbor has a legal right to demand that the fence be torn down. This will, in turn, cost you time and money.
Not Talking to Neighbors
Moreover, you can also damage your relationship with whoever lives next to you. While your neighbor cannot stop you from building your fence, it’s still good form to run the idea past them before you start looking for contractors or deciding on the fence material you like the best. Consideration goes a long way, which is even more important when you think about how noisy putting a fence up can be. If they damage your fence or deface it without admitting that they have a problem, then it could get ugly. Save yourself the trouble.
Failure to Factor In Lifestyle
How do you live? That should be your guiding question before you settle on a working budget and start making arrangements. Your lifestyle will have a considerable impact on how you update your landscape, especially if you need to remove old features to replace them with newer ones instead. Cedar and pine fences might not be enough to fulfill the purpose of your fence.
Either way, we urge you to reconsider any DIY projects. In other words, don’t do it. Instead, let the professionals handle it.
