What to Consider Before a Fence Installation

If you are looking to add some much need security, privacy, or curb appeal to your property, installing a fence is a great way to go. Before beginning your project, you’ll want to consider a couple of things. Here are some things to think about:

Choosing Materials

There are plenty of options to choose from when picking your fence material. The most common type is wooden fences, in which there are many different styles. At Titan Fence, we have built thousands of wood fences and encourage you to give us a call to discuss the straight facts about getting the fence that suits your home and style.

Depending on your region, however, you can also choose from fencing material such as ornamental iron, chain link, etc. – it really all comes down to what works best for you and your property!

Know Your Boundaries

Before installing your new fence, make sure you know your property lines. Building a fence on your neighbor’s property can be a serious issue and they can force you to take down the fence if they choose to do so. You will also want to abide by neighborhood codes before starting any project; so be sure to research local regulations before beginning the project.

Consider Maintenance

Different types of material react differently depending on the climate of the area. Wood swells and shrinks depending on the weather; certain types of metal can rust more easily than others, and so on. You’ll want the type of fence that is durable to your climate, weather, and temperature.

While a picket fence fits the aesthetical appeal, wood fences require a lot more maintenance than other fences because they can potentially warp or rot. It’s important to be realistic about how much time you’re willing to devote to maintenance of your fence before deciding which to buy.
