Are you looking to install a residential fence but do not know where to start in choosing the type of residential fence for your home? If yes, we are here to help you make the right choice for your home with a few tips on how to pick out a high quality, affordable residential fence.

Your fence is one of the first things visitors to your home and neighbors alike will notice about your yard. You want to install a fence that is both attractive and functional. You can accomplish this goal by choosing the style and materials that will compliment your landscape the best. Follow these tips to install the right fence for your yard:

Pick the Function Of Your Fence

Before you install a fence, you need to know why you are installing it. Some common reasons for installing a fence are as followed:

–        To add more privacy

–        To improve the security around your property

–        To add decoration to your property

Knowing the function of your fencing will help you pick the best size, style, and material for your property.

Set a Budget

Once you know the function of your soon-to-be-fence, you need to create a budget for your fence installation. Size and materials often make up the amount you will have to spend on installation. Some materials are more expensive than others such as vinyl because of its durability and low-maintenance.

Pick a Style

When you add a fence to your property, it will inevitably change the look of your whole landscape. To pick the right style for your property, look at other yards in your neighborhood. Jot down any designs that appeal to you.

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Are you trying to enhance your home’s curb appeal while improving your yard safety and privacy? If yes, we are here to help by providing you advice on building a great fence! Read below to find out how!

Prior to Building

Do you know the reason as to why you are building a fence? When you know the answer to this question you can determine the purpose of your fence and figure out the design. Some valid reasons to building a fence are as followed: demarcate property lines, gain privacy, contain pets, contain children, or keep people away from your pool.

Make sure you check local building codes. If you contact your town hall or city’s zoning office, you can learn about easements, height restrictions, or setbacks.

Make sure to verify your property lines as well. You should be able to find this information on your home’s closing papers. The papers will confirm where your property begins and ends. If you are not sure about your property lines, hire a land surveyor.

Talk to Your Neighbors. Make sure you discuss building plans with your neighbors to make sure you are on good terms with them about the idea of building a fence, especially if you share a common area.

Choosing a Fence Style

Remember, your fence is an extension of your home. It has the ability to add charm and character to your yard. Make sure your fence will harmonize with the architectural design of your home by making it match with your home’s exterior- stone, wood, painted trim. Do you want a porch railing, pillars or finial? If so, repeat this design with your fence to add a hint of coordination of look.
