TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT FENCE

Spread the love

There are so many fence options out there how do you know which one is the best for you? Of course, you have tastes and preferences, and you’ve certainly ridden by a fence and imagined it in your yard.

But before you go chasing “white-picket” fence dreams, review a few tips while in the planning stage to ensure you’re making the right choice for your new fence.

FENCE GOAL SETTING

Consider your goals behind getting a fence. Is it for family safety? Do you need to keep a beloved family pet in the yard? Do the kids need a place to run around but stay confined within a certain area of your yard? Are you just looking to accent your property?

Whether it’s one reason or a combination of many, planning everything out before starting will ensure, you get the best fence for your investment, the first time.

WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET?

Having a budget in mind is step one. A new fence and fence installation will vary depending on the size of your property, slopes, configurations and fencing material.

ARE THERE HOA REGULATIONS?

Make sure to check with your HOA regarding their standards for fence material and height. You do not want to move forward with a Tennessee fence installation without knowing the rules.

CONSIDER FENCE MATERIALS AND UPKEEP

The reality is we all are busy with barely enough time to take out the trash on some days, so you need to pick a fence that fits your lifestyle. So what level of commitment does each fence take? The reality is, not a lot. But like a roof, you have to put some work in to get out a longer-term benefit.

You need to consider the upkeep of each fence type. For example, a wood fence needs the most maintenance with painting and staining every couple of years. While, vinyl and aluminum fencing requires the least amount of upkeep; although wood is easier to repair the aluminum. Again, it comes down to several factors like budget and personal preference.
