Fencing is part of the first impression of your home.
Fixing or refurbishing an existing fence? In general, if a fence is in good condition and only requires minor repairs, such as fixing a loose board or replacing a few posts, it may be cheaper to fix it. However, if a fence is in poor condition and requires extensive repairs or replacement of multiple sections, it may be more cost-effective to replace the entire fence. Additionally, if the fence is old and made of materials that are no longer in good condition, it may be cheaper to replace it than to continuously fix it. We can help evaluate the condition of your fence.
Adding a new fence? There are several things to consider:
- Consider why you want to add a fence and what your main objectives are. For example, do you want to increase privacy, keep pets or children contained, or add curb appeal to your property?
- Zoning and building codes: Check with your local zoning and building department (we can help here) to ensure that your fence complies with any local regulations. Some areas may have height restrictions or have specific requirements for the type of material that can be used.
- Make sure you are aware of your property lines and that you are not building on your neighbor’s property. Having a survey of your property can help you determine the exact boundaries.
- Choose a material that will best suit your needs and budget. There are many options, such as wood, vinyl, aluminum, chain link, wrought iron, etc.
- Consider how much maintenance the fence will require, and choose a material that is low maintenance and durable.
- If you are planning on building a fence that will be visible from the street or from your neighbors’ property, it’s a good idea to talk to them and get their opinion, especially if they will be affected by the fence.
