Before You Remove an Old Fence

Did you just move into a new property with an old, unsightly fence? Before you remove it, there are several things you should take into consideration.


Do you own the fence?

If you do, then you can do with it as you please. However, depending on the history of the property, the fence might not be yours. Or it may have been installed on your property by the previous owner, but the owner may have installed it without approval or on your neighbor’s property line. If this is the case, your best option is to talk to your neighbor and ask if he or she would allow you to tear the fence down so you could build a new one.

Call the utility company

Before you start digging, call the utility company. They may have underground wires in the area, and you definitely don’t want to be fined for damaging their wires.

Have a plan

Fence posts can be difficult to remove. They’re often stuck in a mixture of cement and gravel which can extend several feet into the ground. If you don’t have the equipment or experience, it’s a good idea to call a professional fence contractor to assist you.
