There is usually a lot of thought and consideration when a homeowner tries to decide on the style of fence for their property. Important aspects to consider include, height, durability, and amount of maintenance it will require. Another important aspect that should not be overlooked is color. Here are some tips for choosing the right paint or stain color for your fence.
Needs To Match The House
A fence should compliment the appearance of your house. In terms of color, it should match the colors of your home. Otherwise, it will look like it does not belong on your property. In most cases, a white fence will look nice next to a white house. However, if your home is yellow you may want to think twice about painting your fence yellow as well. You do not want to overdo it with the amount of color on your property. Consult a designer or look online to see which fence and home colors work well with each other.
Consult Your Neighbors
Before you go out and buy paint or stain for your fence, it is a good idea to speak with your next-door neighbors. For one, it is a courteous and a neighborly thing to do. They may have a strong aversion to one of the colors that you were considering for your fence. They also may be able to provide you with some color suggestions. On top of that, you need to give them notice you will be painting or staining your fence so they have time to make precautionary measures on their property. For example, maybe they have a statue near your fence that needs to be moved before you start painting your fence.
Before you choose a color for your fence, you need to review what colors are accepted by the HOA. It would a shame if you had to repaint your entire fence a different color because the HOA does not approve of your color choice. In order to save yourself time, money and potential headaches, determine what colors you are permitted to use on your fence.
