A fence is a wonderful addition to almost any residential property. Fences provide numerous benefits to the homeowner while also adding to the value and curb appeal of the home. For some savvy homeowners, fence installation may even be a totally manageable DIY task (for the rest of us, professional installation by a reputable residential fence company is a fine choice). If you’re considering installing a residential fence, read on for some of the details you need to think about before tackling the project.
What Is The Purpose?
Start by considering why you want a fence. If you want it for simple aesthetics you will have different options available than if you want it for privacy. If you need a fence because of your residential pool, you’re going to have different code restrictions than if you want it to protect your garden from bunnies.
Which Materials Are Best?
There is no one best material for a fence – it depends on your needs and your budget. Wood is a great, classic choice that tends to be less expensive than many other choices. Wrought iron is a beautiful ornamental choice, but it won’t fit every house. Vinyl panels are easier to DIY, but may cost more than the same amount of materials in wood.
When Should I Do It?
Most people assume that spring and summer are the best times of year for fence installation, but they’re not necessarily. If you want a fence installed in those times of year, it is fine, but you’re competing with a lot of other people (for contractors and for materials). Winter tends to be a slow season, so you may find you have a better selection of professionals available and possibly that it costs less during that time. If you’re DIYing it, however, winter is not a fun time of year to work outside.
How Much And How Long?
The cost and the timetable are going to depend on all of the factors we’ve discussed so far: what materials and type of fence, when is it being built, does the old fence need to be demoed, and who is doing the work. The question of who is especially relevant to your timetable. A professional, like GSA Commercial Fence Company, will be able to complete the project more quickly than you would on your own – professionals have specialized tools and countless hours of experience.
