Know Your Fence Purpose
First and foremost, you need to know the purpose behind building the fence. Do you want to set new boundaries, contain a child or pet, or are you looking for some increased privacy. Providing the main focus of your fence to your salesman will help narrow down the choices.
Pick a Type of Fence
Once you know why you need a fence, it’s time to determine what kind of fence fits that purpose. Central Iowa Fencing is happy to provide a number of options to best suit your needs depending upon your budget.
Do Some Research
Aside from deciding who to hire to install your fence, you should also spend some time getting information about local building codes prior to installation. Additionally, be sure to check with your neighborhood association to check if you need prior approval. Homeowner associations often have specific requirements that may be more strict than city codes.
Inform Your Neighbor
It’s always a good idea to let your neighbor know that you’ll be installing a fence. Be sure to talk about things like lawn care maintenance along the fence as well.
