While our team at Fence Masters will help with the fence installation process, there are steps that you can take on your own to make it even smoother. Here are some key steps to take leading up to your new fence installation process.

Know your borders: You should fully understand the exact area that is your property in order to properly receive a permit and not encroach on your neighbor’s yard. A plat of survey indicates your boundaries and property details. You do not want to go over any of your property lines and upset your neighbors and possibly have to re-do your brand new fence. If you do not have your plat, you should check with your town, city or county officials, or possibly your builder as they should have one on file for your home and property.

Get your permits: Make sure that you have the proper permits on file before we begin any of your fence installation process. Contact your local officials to see if this is required and apply and pay for the permit if necessary. We will need to have this completed before we begin your installation process.

Take time to clean up: After we have determined where your fence is going, it is helpful if you have cleared this area of any items or debris before our crew comes out to your place. This will help us get going on your installation and not prompt any delays. It is very helpful to have the areas around your fence line fully clear, so that our team can safely move around and install your fence for you. 

Clearly mark your property lines: Depending on exactly where we are installing your fence, it is advantageous to have your property lines staked out, so that we understand where your property ends. This will help keep us on track and clear up any confusion. We certainly do not want to make any mistakes and put your fence in beyond your own property.

Mark your fence lines: To help you visualize where it will go and to finalize your design plans, we recommend having a visual indication of your fence. You can use stakes and string as a way to see how your fence will look once it is completed. This can help clear up any lingering doubts you may have as to where you want it. You may decide to move the line based on this process. Our crew will review this with you when they are onsite to install your fence. 

Check in with your neighbors: Clue your neighbors into your plans, so that you are all on the same page. You do not want to make a significant change to your property line without discussing it with your neighbors. Also, make sure they are aware of the installation timeline.
