Investing in a new fence is a big decision, but it’s something that many home and business owners look forward to with excitement. A new privacy barrier, boundary fence, or ornamental feature can make a massive impact on your property, providing significant benefits for many years to come. However, some property owners simply don’t know where to start when it’s time to plan. How large will your fence be? Where will it go? How many feet will your barrier run, and how tall do you want it? Taking the time to measure for a new fence during the early planning stages is a great way to get answers to these important questions.
Measuring for a New Fence Ahead of Time is a Great Way to Get Started
While a fencing contractor will certainly help you take more accurate measurements and answer any questions you have about the process, it can be highly beneficial to have estimated measurements for your project in the early days. Knowing roughly how many feet of fence you’ll need is a great starting point, and the process of measuring for a new fence can encourage you to think about other questions and factors you may not have considered before. For example, you may find that you’re not exactly sure where your property line ends or that where you envisioned your new fence doesn’t leave enough room for your other plans.
Confirm Property Lines, Utilities, and Other Measurements
One helpful step that you or your contractor will take during the fence planning process is to confirm measurements like property boundaries and utility placement. Knowing where your property lines are is crucial for avoiding fines or legal issues in the future, and a plat or new survey can help you confirm these measurements. Your plan should also take things like underground utilities, power lines, and trees into account.
