There are all sorts of reasons for wanting a fence around your yard or property.
When the old one looks like it is about to fall, you need a new fence.
If the dog keeps escaping, you may need a new fence.
Are the neighbors a bit too noisy or nosey? You may want to consider installing a barrier.
But what type is critical to your particular needs and the look of the home or business you are fencing in.
You see, the functionality of a fence is not merely for security, although that can be important as well. Make the wrong choice, and you have a costly mistake on your hands. Not to mention, most fences are meant to last. You may have to live with the poor choice for years to come. That is why understanding the following is imperative:

This is the first question a fence installer is going to ask. You see, they have seen all different circumstances for fences, and they can recommend you think through the decision to pick the right type. Here are some of the questions you will need to ask yourself.
Once you narrow down your choices for wanting a fence and all it can do for you and your family, there is still more to look into.
With the high humidity in Georgia, the climate can deteriorate most any material. And if you plan to have your fence last a lifetime, you will want to ensure it is of a quality that will last. Then, consider the upkeep for your new fence. Do you want a fence you can let go? Or are you going to paint that white picket fence each year to ensure its brilliance?
Wood fences need pressure washing and staining, and they will last a long time.
Vinyl fences are a more significant initial investment with lower maintenance requirements. All you may need to do is wash it once in a while.
Aluminum and iron fences can be susceptible to the humid air and will need to be coated to last as long as they can.
Then there is the height to be concerned about. If you just want a cute look for the front of the home, the white picket fence in wood or vinyl may do the trick. But if you need a fence for privacy, security, or safety, a 6-foot fence may be just what you need. Some barriers can even be heightened with a topper or barbed wire for added security.
Once you have put all this information together, you will need to ensure there are no community or HOA regulations as to the type or height of fence you can erect. So many people place a fence in their yard, only to have to remove it the following week. Checking with the neighbors and the community is best when making such a significant investment in your home or property.
Will you be installing your fence on your own, or will you have a local professional installer build it for you?
Are there underground lines to be concerned about? You sure do not want to cut a central plumbing or electrical wire while digging your posts.
What are the legal boundaries of your property line?
How many gates will you need? And will those gates need to fit a tractor or just a tiny lawn mower?
A bit of good planning will go far when you are considering installing a new fence. So, if you need a fence, contact a local expert to help you choose well.
