Follow Neighborhood Restrictions When Having New Fencing Installed

by Terri Holmes

Installing fencing can be a big decision, especially because it can be quite expensive. As such, it is vital that you don't make any mistakes with your choice. If you live in a neighborhood that has a lot of restrictions over what you can do with the exterior of your property, there could be limitations in the fence you can pick.

Instead of needing to replace or change the fencing, consider the following tips.

Understand Permit Requirements

If you're eager to install fencing, it's best not to rush into it because of the potential need for a permit. Some neighborhoods or towns could require residents to get a permit when they intend on having fencing installed in either the front or back of their property.

The permit could get approved or not based on the height of the fence, as well as the material you end up choosing. By working with a fencing contractor, it will be easier to check what the requirements are for getting a permit.

Check the Materials and Colors Allowed

As you shop for fencing to install around your property, you'll face a lot of options for materials and colors. Wood fencing can be a timeless option and is an excellent candidate for paint or stain for a unique look. Vinyl fencing can stand up over years of wear, especially when you consider the potential damage that rain can cause.

Since some neighborhoods may have restrictions over the materials you can use or the colors to include on your property, you'll need to pay attention to this before making any purchases. For best results, work with a fence contractor. 

Work with an Approved Contractor

Some neighborhoods may have limitations over the contractor you can work with, leading to needing to choose a fencing contractor from an approved list. Requesting this information before committing to a specific contractor can ensure that you're able to get the help you need and with no surprising mistakes.

Getting fencing installed around your property can take some extra work when you live in a neighborhood that has more restrictions than you're accustomed to. If you're worried about the options for fencing and want to make the best purchase possible, you can have an easier time by contacting your neighborhood association or looking into local policies where you live.

This extra research can direct you to both the right fencing and the right contractor that will deliver the results you want for your home. For more information, contact a company like Quality Lawn & Landscape.
