Fence Building and Fencing Introduction

Take a bit of time to look at the selection of fence designs inside your neighborhood. Whether you would like a boundary, privacy or picket fence, there are numerous appealing alternatives in a extensive array of prices.

Many towns and cities have zoning laws and your community might have a neighborhood code pertaining to fence heights and materials. Verify with your local Rhode Island code enforcement office and neighborhood association regarding the types, styles, and colors of fences allowed to be put in Rhode Island . You will be certain in making an informed decision, and avoid the hassle of removing your fence if it doesn't fulfill local codes.

A little planning will aid you in choosing the correct style of fencing. Think realistically in reference to amount of work involved in digging postholes and setting the posts. A lot of people choose to employ an expert to guarantee the job is done accurately. Evaluate the fee for renting the equipment, arranging for the delivery of materials, and the time required to build the fence, to the fee for hiring a specialist. The price variable may be insignificant when you take into account the extent of work required and the knowledge that the job will be completed accurately.

Things to take into account when planning your fence design:

What kind of fence goes with your home and community? Explore the fences in your community and observe which styles you find the most striking.

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

How much can you afford?

What is the object of the fence? Is it privacy that you want? Is it required to be high enough to contain a child or a pet? Is it a security fence?

Are you ready to invest the time to regularly maintain a wood fence, or is metal a better choice?

If you choose a wood fence, would it need painting or staining? Choices for wood fence include pressure-treated spruce, cedar, redwood and pine.

Would the fence hinder your neighbor's view or enjoyment of their yard? Will the fence integrate 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, take a look at samples of his/her work, especially if the work was done in your community. Is the contractor licensed, and does he/she have references?

Research pricing of various fences while considering your budget.

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