We Can Help You Prepare for a New Fence Install

Installing a fence involves several steps to ensure a successful and durable outcome. We have a general guide to help you prepare for the fence installation and we can take care of these steps for you if needed.

Steps to take to prepare for your new fence

  1. Check Local Regulations: Verify if there are any local regulations or zoning laws governing fence installations. Some areas have specific requirements regarding fence height, material, and placement.
  2. Determine Property Lines: Clearly mark your property lines to avoid any disputes with neighbors. You may need to hire a professional surveyor for accurate measurements.
  3. Choose Fence Type: Decide on the type of fence you want based on your needs (privacy, security, aesthetics). Common types include wood, vinyl, chain-link, and wrought iron. Consider maintenance requirements, durability, and the overall look.
  4. Set a Budget: Determine your budget for the project. This will help you make decisions on materials, labor, and any additional features you may want.
  5. Obtain Necessary Permits: Check with your local municipality to see if you need a permit for the fence installation. If required, obtain the necessary permits before the project begins.
  6. Discuss Property Access: If the fence installation requires access to your neighbor’s property, discuss this with them beforehand and ensure you have their permission.
  7. Prepare for Utility Lines: Call your local utility companies to mark the location of underground utility lines before digging begins. This is crucial to avoid any damage to existing utilities.
  8. Arrange for Payment: Determine the payment schedule with the contractor and be prepared to make payments as agreed upon in the contract.

By taking these steps, you’ll be well-prepared for a smooth and successful fence installation process.
