The Buyer’s Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Buying a Fence

Thinking about installing a new fence for your property? B&T fencing will help you to make an informed decision around all factors that go into installing a new fence. Here’s a few things to consider before buying a fence:

  1. The “Why”

Installing a fence is a big project, and you want to make sure you’re choosing the right materials and fencing for your home. Think about why you want to install a fence. Is it for the privacy, the family dog, or a sense of security? Answering this question will help you to navigate the different types of materials and styles of fencing to choose from. For example, an ornamental, white picket fence may not be the choice for a family looking for privacy and security.

  1. The Maintenance

If you want a fence with little upkeep, it’s better to go for sturdier, long-lasting materials, like aluminum or vinyl fencing. However, keep in mind other types of maintenance, such as repairing damage from a storm. An adaptable material like wood fencing offers the benefit of flexibility; you can replace a few boards at a time and stain them to blend in with the rest of your fence.

  1. HOA Approved?

Before you dive head first into your fencing project, check with your HOA and make sure you’re aware of any limitations on fencing in your neighborhood. Even if you don’t have specific rules or an HOA, consider running your fencing plans by your neighbors. Be courteous and try not to completely block their views.

  1. Choosing a Contractor
