Fence Building and Fencing Introduction

Take some time to study the selection of fence designs inside your community. Whether you'd like a boundary, privacy or picket fence, there are multiple appealing choices in a extensive array of prices.

Many towns and cities have zoning laws and your neighborhood may have a neighborhood code pertaining to fence heights and materials. Check with your local Rhode Island code enforcement office and neighborhood association on the subject of colors, types, and styles of fences allowed to be installed Rhode Island . You will be confident in making a smart decision, and avoid the hassle of removing your fence if it does not fulfill neighborhood codes.

A small amount of planning will aid you in choosing the correct style of fencing. Think realistically on the subject of extent of labor involved in digging postholes and setting the posts. Many people choose to employ a professional to ensure the job is done appropriately. Compare the price of leasing the equipment, arranging for the delivery of supplies, and the time required to build the fence, to the cost of employing a specialist. The price variable may be minor when you take into account the extent of work required and the knowledge that the job will be done properly.

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

What kind of fence complements your home and community? Consider the fences in your community and observe which styles you find the most attractive.

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

How much can you afford?

What is the reason for the fence? Do you desire privacy? Must it be high enough to contain a pet or a child? Is the fence for security?

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 need painting or staining? Options of wood fencing include pressure-treated spruce, cedar, redwood and pine.

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

Are you secure in building the fence yourself, or should you employ a contractor?

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

Think about the pricing of various fences while considering your budget.

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