Questions to Ask before Installing a Fence

Fences can be very attractive but they also serve a purpose, particularly if you have young children and/or pets. Before moving ahead with a fence installation, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Why are you installing the fence? – This may seem like a silly question but you want to have a clear idea of what your fence needs to do. Is it just for aesthetic purposes, or do you want to keep pets or children safe? This will help determine what type of style will work best as well as what type of material.
  • Check your town ordinances – a lot of towns have specific requirements for fencing, and you want to make sure your choice of fence fits with the ordinances.
  • Review the different types of materials – fences not only have a lot of style options, you also have a number of options for the materials. However, you are going to want to take a look at what the maintenance is on the different materials. For instance, wood fences are classic and attractive, but they require a great deal of upkeep. If you aren’t prepared to handle this level of maintenance, you’ll want to look for a material that is more self–contained.

Common Fence Repairs

There are a number of issues that can develop with your fence that will cause it to be unstable or non–functioning. Here are some of the types of fence repairs we have helped customers:

  • Leaning fences – there can be a number of reasons why a fence leans, and it isn’t always an easy fix. Let our pros determine the problem and repair the issue.
  • Gate(s) won’t close – if you have a fence to keep pets or young children safe, you’ll have a hard time doing so with a faulty gate. Let our pros repair your gate for full functionality.
  • Rotted posts – when all–wood posts are much more prone to developing rot than man–made materials. Rotting posts can make your fence unstable, so it is best to have them replaced as soon as possible.
