Putting up a new fence can be a great way to rejuvenate your home’s curb appeal and make your outdoor living space more enjoyable. However, there are some things you should do to make sure that you don’t run into any issues that could slow down the project. Knowing how to prepare for fence installation gives you the best possible chance at success.
Mark Your Property Lines
Depending on your relationship with your neighbors, you could end up with a tense situation if your fence extends onto property that isn’t yours. By knowing where your property lines are and marking them, your fence contractor can work within the proper boundaries. In some municipalities, fences need to be a minimum distance from your home or deck, too.
Call Your Utility Company
Check with your utility company to avoid dangerous situations whenever you plan to dig on your property. There may be underground cables or pipes you might not know of. Unintentionally hitting a cable or pipe could cause harm to your fence contractor or disrupt the utilities at your home or in your neighborhood.
Remove Any Obstacles
If you are doing a first-time chain link, wood or iron fence installation, make sure the area is cleared and ready to go before starting the project. This includes any vegetation, stones or stumps that might be in the way.
