When You Need a Privacy Fence, Consider These Steps First!
- Double check your local zoning laws and also with your Homeowner’s Association: The most important way to get started is to check your local zoning laws. Can you even install a new fence, privacy or not? You should also get permission to install it, first. Outdoor structures are a hidden cost when you are adding up how much it will cost to establish the said fence. Before getting started and spending any time or money, be sure you know what regulations and limitations from the local authorities you are up against. Your Homeowner’s Association (HOA) will probably have their own set of guidelines about the types of fencing materials you can use, on your own property.
- Locate where your utilities run: You’ll then want to locate where your utility lines run and account for them when the fence is being installed. You don’t want to run the risk of damaging any pipes or wires underground, or have your new fence torn down when the county or city needs to run maintenance on them nearby.
- Investigate your land area and its grading: Now that you can build your fence, you’ll need to decide where it should go. Don’t forget about posts to help hold the fence together. Having the professionals handle it will probably be easier and less frustrating than attempting to install it yourself.
- What should your privacy fence be made of? Wood and vinyl are the most common and popular types of material for a privacy fence. However, less common materials are no less versatile and useful for a privacy fence, either.
