A new fence is an amazing addition to your property, even if that new fence is simply replacing an old fence in the same location. Residential fencing does so much work for your home, from protecting the people, stuff, and pets to promoting privacy and peace. Fences also improve curb appeal. The short story is that if you’re thinking about replacing a fence, it probably isn’t doing one or more of those jobs well. New GSA fencing installation is a project that is going to add to your property value and improve your life. So whether you’re thinking about DIYing the project or already know that you’re contracting with a GSA commercial fence company, these are the basic things you need to know about fence installation before you get started.
Check Out Local Rules
Depending on where you live, there may be some rules (or even many rules) about the fence that you’re putting up. Some cities require a full permitting procedure, even for a small fencing project. Other places don’t. Some neighborhood HOAs dictate the type or size of fence that you can install (or don’t allow you to install them at all). Still, other areas only have regulations if the fence is going to be close to a roadway and could possibly obstruct views. Make sure to research your area early in the process.
Choose Season Wisely
While fences can technically be installed almost any time, the season when you choose to do the installation does matter. Summer and spring are busy months because everyone is trying to get their fences down while the weather is nice so they can use the yard. Winter is less busy (and you may even score a discount) but once the ground freezes, installation becomes much more difficult. Fall is a good time to take on the project unless your area is seeing a housing boom, and everyone is busy getting their home ready to go on the market before the holidays (and installing new fencing to boost property value).
Double Check Attributes
Make sure that the fence attribute that you settle on is what you really want. For instance, if you are trying to keep a chihuahua in your yard, an ornamental fence with big gaps is a poor choice. If you’re keeping a husky, anything short of an unscalable, super high privacy fence might fail to meet your needs. If you’re protecting the area around your pool, the fence will need to meet the specifications of your insurance provider. Make sure that you understand all of your needs before committing to a fence style.
