Choosing The Right Fence

It might not seem like a difficult decision, but finding the right fence can be hard to do. In addition to choosing a picket style, a color, and a height, you might also be concerned about abiding by city and neighborhood ordinances. However, all of these decisions are easy if you choose the right fence contractor. A few years ago, I found a great contractor who helped us to create a beautiful, functional backyard in a few weeks.

Things To Discuss With The Fencing Company

by Chester Alvarez

There are going to be some things that you will want to discuss with whichever fencing company you hire for the installation of your new fence. To help make sure that you are not going to miss any valuable points, you will want to continue reading. You might want to make notes regarding what you learn from each fencing company so you don't get them confused when you are trying to figure out who to hire. The following are some of the important things you will want to talk about with the fencing contractor.

The Types Of Fencing

There are a lot of different types of fencing you can pick from. There's the chain link fences, iron fences, wood fences, and PVC plastic fences. You may also find that there are various styles of each type of fencing, as well as different heights to consider. If your main goal is to have a tall fence for privacy, your fencing contractor will be able to show you examples of what would work best for your needs.

How The Permit Is Handled

Do you have to obtain a permit or is this something that the fencing company is willing to do on your behalf? Depending on the code ordinances, you might have to get a permit for a fence, but you can't just have any fence installed. You might be told that privacy fences aren't allowed. Of course, there is always the chance that you can get a privacy fence if you are just replacing an old privacy fence that was originally installed before the new rules went into effect. Your contractor might know whether you even need a permit at all if you are simply replacing an old fence.

The Total Cost

The total cost of the fence installation will vary depending on several factors. The type of fencing you select, the amount of that fencing you need, and whether or not an old existing fence needs to be removed before the installation can take place. You might be able to cut costs by removing the old fence on your own.

You will want to make sure that you are beginning your search for a fencing company that can do the work you need done as soon as possible. The nicer the weather gets, the busier fencing companies tend to get. You don't want to have to wait until the colder months for your new fence, especially if you would like to take full advantage of the fence during the summer months. Start calling around so you can begin to create a list of quotes for the type of fencing you want for your yard.
