Fence Building and Fencing Introduction

Take some time to consider the selection of fence designs in and around your community. Whether you'd like a picket, privacy or boundary fence, there are various attractive alternatives in a wide range of prices.

Many towns and cities have zoning laws and your neighborhood might have a neighborhood code pertaining to fence heights and materials. Confirm with your local Northwest Ohio code enforcement office and neighborhood association in reference to styles, colors, and types of fences permitted to be installed Northwest Ohio . You will be certain in making a smart decision, and avert the hassle of removing your fence if it doesn't meet with local codes.

A little planning would assist you in selecting the right type of fence. Think reasonably about the extent of labor involved in digging postholes and setting the posts. Many people choose to employ an expert to be sure the job is completed properly. Compare the expense of leasing the equipment, arranging for the delivery of materials, and the time required to install the fence, to the cost of employing a specialist. The price variable might be minimal when you contemplate the amount of labor required and the knowledge that the job will be completed properly.

Things to take into account when planning the design of your fence:

What kind of fence matches your home and neighborhood? Look at fences in your neighborhood and observe which styles you find the most appealing.

How close can the fence legally be to the property line?

How much are you able to afford?

What is the object of the fence? Do you desire privacy? Should it be high enough to contain children or pets? Is it a security fence?

Are you prepared to put the time in to regularly maintain a wood fence, or is metal a better option?

If you opt for a wood fence, would it require painting or staining? Selections for wood fencing consist of pressure-treated cedar, pine, spruce and redwood.

Will the fence block your neighbor's view or enjoyment of their yard? Will the fence go well with the fences of your neighbors?

Do you feel confident putting in the fence on your own, or should you hire a contractor?

If you employ a contractor, look at examples of his/her work, especially if the work was completed in your neighborhood. Is the contractor licensed, and does he/she have references?

Think about the cost of various fences while keeping your budget in mind.

If you are on a tight budget, think about having a contractor install the posts and attaching the rails and boards yourself.
