Always Double Check Property Lines
While you may think you know where your property ends and your neighbor’s begins, it’s always wise to check your property lines before installing a fence. Sometimes, when you’ve been living in a home for many years, it’s easy for these lines to get blurred, especially if there was a pre-existing fence on your property when you purchased your home. If you still have easy access to the survey that you received when you bought your home, you can always refer to that for the necessary information. If not, your local assessor’s office will have that information on file and will be more than happy to share it with you.
Alert Your Neighbors
Professional fence installation requires a team of experienced fence installers to get the job done. For this reason, it’s a good idea to alert the neighbors that your share property boundaries with that our team will be working on your land. While unnecessary, it’s always a kind gesture to give a heads up, significantly if the installation will interfere with your neighbor’s daily activities.
Properly Maintain Your Fence
Not only will taking care of your fence keep your property looking beautiful, but it will also keep your neighbors happy. Depending on the type of fence you invest in, maintenance will be a regular part of your exterior improvement routine. Regular cleanings, Re-Staining as needed, and repairing damages as quickly as you can are all ways to keep your neighbors satisfied with your investment and save you the headache of replacing your fence due to poor maintenance.
