It varies depending on the location. There are some areas where rules are lenient, while there are also places where there are no restrictions at all. For better compliance, we strongly encourage our clients to consult with local authorities and in some cases, the homeowners’ association. Knowing the legal restrictions is essential in avoiding delays and to ensure smooth operation. Typically, restrictions cover the design, height, and material of the fences. Meanwhile, for some areas, digging permits are necessary prior to construction. You can also ask for written references or guidebooks to help in the process of choosing the fences for your property.
It is not required by the law to consult your neighbors; however, it is a good courtesy to do so. We urge all our clients to consult with their neighbors prior to installation to make sure that no conflicts arise during the project. Some property owners are lucky enough to have generous neighbors who chip in for the expenses. Meanwhile, others can be indifferent. But no matter how your neighbor will react, what’s important is that gesture of consulting with them. It also minimizes chances for conflicts, since some neighbors take the initiative to make the necessary adjustments to avoid getting bothered by the construction.
It depends on how tall your fences are. The depth of the fence posts cannot be determined unless there is a specific measurement for the fence height. Our team can take charge of these technicalities. They are well-versed in this matter and can do it accurately. But to give you an idea, average size fences normally have 3-4 feet deep fence posts. Meanwhile, higher fences need deeper fence posts to ensure better stability. For these fence posts to remain upright, it also needs concrete in the base. So, make sure to allot space for concrete when digging for fence posts.
It depends on the purpose of the fence. For fences which are primarily to safeguard pets within the yard and keep pests away, these fences can touch the ground. However, if your fences are not designed for this purpose, it might not hold up well. Since the ground contains moisture, the contact between the fence and the ground allows the moisture to transfer on to the fence. Moisture can cause rust and result to irreparable damage which might later on need replacement. But you can always protect your fences by using a superior coating which can prevent rust from forming.
Yes, weather does impede fence installation. It is difficult to work in extreme weather conditions like too low temperature, too high temperature, high humidity, and heavy rain. Some materials even contract or swell, when the temperatures are unusual. Meanwhile, concrete may fail to set in some specific weather conditions. We are afraid that it can affect the quality of our work and so to make sure that we get the best results, we would rather suspend work during these circumstances. As much as we want to get the job done immediately, we don’t want to risk quality of our work.
The appropriate material to use will depend on the type of fence and the purpose it needs to serve. If you prefer to have complete privacy you can opt for vinyl fences. Meanwhile, if you want something which is chicer and more sophisticated, Cedar wood fence can deliver the same type of privacy but in an upgraded look. You just have to be aware that wood requires significant maintenance, as compared to other materials, to ensure its best state. On the other hand, if you are seeking for heavy-duty and durable fences, the steel and aluminum materials will surely meet your needs.
It depends on the purpose and the type of privacy that you want. If your fences are only intended for children and pets, you can opt for shorter fences. It takes less work to install and certainly comes at a cheaper cost. However, if your fences are intended to ensure complete privacy, security, and safety, then we suggest getting tall fences. Normally, tall fences are about 7 to 10 feet in height to ensure that it is impossible to break in. Tall fences are commonly found in places such as tennis courts and baseball fields, but it can also be suitable for residential areas.
Your fences are supposed to last at least 10 years. Fences are made and designed for the long run since it is a major investment which requires a ton of work and considerable amount of money. This reason also makes it not ideal to have to replace fences often. However, fences are prone to damage because they are in the outdoors often exposed to unfavorable weather conditions, extreme temperatures, and powerful impact. So, depending on the location of your property, it is crucial to get fences which are appropriate for the environment and the need to ensure that it will last a long time.
