Avoiding Problems When Adding A Fence To Your Property

Ricardo Obrien

Securing your property with a fence is an essential improvement to make in order to keep your property safe and to prevent pets and small children from wandering away from the property. As you are preparing and planning to have a fence installed, being as thorough as possible with this part of the process may help to reduce the risk of problems occurring with this project that may impact the quality of the results or even lead to complications during the construction of the fence.

Identify The Area That Will Need To Be Enclosed With The Fence

If you own a large piece of property, the costs of installing a fence along the entire perimeter can be fairly expensive. Taking the time to thoroughly reflect on the areas that have to be enclosed may allow you to be more efficient with this project. For example, if you are primarily wanting the fence to keep pets and children safe, it may make more sense to focus on installing it in the vicinity of the home. However, if the fence is needed to keep livestock on the property,  it will have to extend a great deal further to provide these animals with enough space.

Research The Maximum Height Of Fences In Your Area

The height of the fence is a factor that will play an important role in determining the overall effectiveness of the fence. However, it is often the case that there may be strict regulations concerning the maximum height of the fence. Failing to comply with these standards may lead to your being forced to tear down the fence to bring it into compliance. When determining the maximum height of the fence that you can install, it is necessary to consult with both the local homeowners' association and the county or city where your home is located as both of these organizations may have their own regulations that will have to be followed.

Have The Property Lines Professionally Identified

It is essential to avoid the risk of building the fence over your property line. If you violate the property line of your neighbor with the fence, it will likely have to be torn down, and you may have to pay damage for the alterations that the fence caused to the neighbor's property. Having the property lines for your house professionally marked will help to avoid this potentially costly dispute, and it may even be a requirement as part of the permitting process for installing the fence.
