Adding a new fence or upgrading your current one can be a great way to add value and aesthetic appeal to your property. There are many things to consider such as cost, materials, time, and style, but here are 5 things to know about building a fence- both residential and commercial wood fence setups:

1. Have your property surveyed so you know where your property lines are and the fence is installed correctly. Few things will cause more headache and run up the cost of a new fence more than getting it set up just the way you want, only to find you are actually 6 inches onto your neighbor’s property. Do your research and double check before you begin building!

2. Know your needs and what you hope to achieve. Is your fence for decoration only or do you need it for privacy? Does your yard face a busy street that needs a buffer of some sort? There are many types of fencing available and countless styles you can select, so you need to know what’s best for you and your family so you choose the right fence.

3. Consult your HOA for fencing regulations so you don’t face problems later. Most HOAs have strict rules for what can and cannot be put on the property. Breaking the rules lead to fees and having to take down your fence. If you do not live in an area with a HOA you should still check for local codes and regulations to ensure you are not breaking any city codes.

4. Don’t forget about current and future fence maintenance! Thinking about the maintenance and repairs will help you make a choice that will serve you and your family well for years to come. Choosing the best types of fencing, for now, is good but being able to enjoy your fence for years can be even better!

5. Share your plans for your new fencing project with your neighbors. Remember that a new fence is not just about you and what you want, it affects your neighbors too! Letting them know ahead of time will save you future problems, especially if you have a less than perfect relationship with the people you share property lines with.
