Whether you are making additions to an old property or just settling into a new home, building a fence is a common way to customize your property and adjust it to meet your needs. Pool fences, privacy barriers, and boundary markers are all standard options for new and experienced homeowners alike. However, the process of building a fence can seem daunting for those who have never done it. Fortunately, the team at Hercules Fence is here to help. When looking into building a fence, ask yourself these essential questions, and contact the experts at Hercules Fence.
Why Do You Want a Fence?
This question should be the easiest to answer. Most people have a set goal in mind when they plan on building a fence, and the purpose of your barrier can help you determine a few different things. If you are looking to construct a boundary fence that marks your property’s edge, you may want to consider a paddock fence. However, if animals getting in or out is an issue, something more substantial may be in order. Keep the purpose of your new barrier in mind as you navigate the planning process.
How Much Time/Effort/Money Are You Willing to Put In?
Some materials cost more to install and maintain than others. While some homeowners are more than happy to put in the extra work to make their wood fences look spectacular, others would gladly opt for vinyl if it means less time and money spent on maintenance. Discuss your options with the professionals at Hercules Fence to determine what materials, designs, and features are best for your budget and goals.
Do You Need Approval From Neighbors or Others Before Building a Fence?
Another important factor when building a fence is getting the appropriate licensing, permits, and approvals. If you live in an area governed by a homeowner’s association, you may be required to seek permission from your neighbors and HOA. Likewise, your local or state government may require construction permits and have restrictions on things like fence height. Working with an experienced contractor can make navigating this aspect of building a fence much easier, so be sure to discuss any questions you may have with your contractor or HOA.
