Installing a fence is a great way to increase the value and security of your property. However, you can run into problems when you are starting the fence installation process for your residential fencing. What are some of the fence etiquette tips that you should know about to avoid any problems with your neighbors?
Where Should You Build the Fence?
One of the biggest things to consider for fence etiquette for your residential fencing is where you should install the fence. Property lines are a major issue, and you never want to risk installing your fence in the wrong spot and needing to uninstall it later because you did not follow the property lines. Make sure you understand your lot’s exact boundaries before starting the fence installation process.
How Should You Maintain Your Fence?
Another critical part of fence etiquette in a residential neighborhood is maintaining your fence properly. You should always make sure that your fence is free from staining, missing boards, and other things that can make it look unsightly and decrease the property value of your house and surrounding homes. We can assist you in installing your fence and in maintaining it for years to come so that it stays attractive. Additionally, we can help guide you through the process of choosing the right fencing material for your preferred maintenance level. Some types of fencing material, like wood, require more maintenance to look great.
What Are Your Local Rules?
When planning your fence installation, you must also ensure that you fully understand the rules for your area. Particularly if you live in a neighborhood with an HOA or homeowners association, you should anticipate specific guidelines on how tall your fence can be, what materials you can use, and how it can be positioned. These specific regulations affecting your residential fencing may also differ depending on where your lot is situated. For example, some neighborhoods have different fence height regulations depending on the position of the house on the street.
