Including a fence on your property is one of the most economic and simple ways to increase your home’s security and beauty. The aesthetics and safety benefits of professional fence installation are infinite, from unique, elegant, custom wrought iron fencing with iron railings and an iron gate to a sturdy wooden privacy fence.
Below, the professional Ironcraft team shares with you some suggestions about fence etiquette that are important to keep in mind throughout the fence installation process. They will help you to maintain and even potentially improve your relationship with your neighbors.
Make Sure of Correct Property Lines
Although you likely assume you are familiar with the line where your property ends and your neighbor’s property begins, it is a good idea to double-check prior to installing a fence. In cases where you have been living in the same home for many years, these lines may become unclear and even more common if there was already a fence or other property divider installed when you originally bought your home.
Advise Your Neighbors
For true professional fence installation, it is best to hire a team of experienced fencing contractors Chicago to ensure a job is done well. Furthermore, it is wise to advise any neighbors that share your property boundaries about the job that will be taking place.
Maintain Your Fence Properly
Taking care of your fence not only keeps your property looking attractive, but will also help to maintain happy neighbors. Maintenance will be a regular part of your exterior improvement routine, depending on the type of fence you install. Repairing damages quickly, frequent cleanings, and restaining as needed are different ways to keep your neighbors pleased with your investment and save you the expense of replacing your fence due to poor maintenance.
