Spring is finally here, which means its time to look at your yard and evaluate the needs. In Utah, we have seen a lot of wood fencing be replaced with modern fencing like vinyl and trex fencing. What is the best option available for your fencing needs, and how do you get started on selecting the right fence. The most important thing to remember when working on a fence is to call early in the season as summer is quite busy, and it can be weeks before someone is able to come out and work on your fence. One important thing to know is that you MUST have a fence if you are planning to have a pool in the yard, yes, even an above-ground pool is considered a liability risk and fencing is normally required by insurance companies.
How do you know the exact property lines for your yard? Property lines are normally determined from property pins that are in the ground for new construction homes, however, curb markers are another possibility. Having a survey done of your property is the best way to make sure you have the correct property lines. Bronco Fence can assist in arranging surveying to ensure you are having your property boundaries properly marked.
Prior to installing a new or replacing an old fence, you must make sure you do not have any homeowners regulations requirements that you need to meet. Homeowners associations can sometimes place intense restrictions on the type of fencing you are allowed to have. Due to the color, type of fence, and height, it’s best to always check with the homeowners association first so you don’t install a new fence, only to take it back down.
Installing a fence is a financial investment. It is vital that you take the time to assess your budget and determine if you have the funds available for the fence. Work with Bronco Fence to obtain an accurate estimate for your fence to ensure you are making the best decision for your home, and your financial situation.
Fence Height Considerations
If you have animals, pools, and other “risks” in your yard, you must make sure the fence is at a height that will prevent your pet from escaping the yard, and to have the fence prevent others from entering your yard without permission. If you do have a pool, it’s recommended to consider privacy fencing to prevent others from seeing the pool. Certain dog breeds need to have larger fences as they can easily jump six feet high.
Another thing to consider when you are looking at different fencing options is to consider the permits. Does your city have specific regulations or requirements that you must meet? Bronco Fence is diligent in our research when we do install fencing, but we do recommend homeowners understand the importance of permit requirements as it can have a direct impact on the fence installation.
What happens if you want to install a fence right where you have a large tree growing. Tree removal is needed for certain fence installation projects. We do recommend that you air on the side of caution if you want to install a fence where the yard has older trees with a lot of roots.
