There are several reasons that homeowners choose to install a fence: privacy, safety, aesthetic appeal, and pet containment, to name a few. No matter what your motivation, there is a style and size that will best suit your needs. Listed below are few questions you should consider when choosing an appropriate fence for your yard.

What is the fence being used for?

The answer to this question will dictate the size, style, and material used for your fence. Homeowners who need to contain a pet might choose a different fence from those who want something decorative around their garden.

What is your budget?

Your budget may dictate the size and materials used for your new fence. Understanding how much you can spend will help you and your fence installer choose a design that will meet your needs without breaking the bank.

What material should I choose?

There are three basic materials used for fencing: wood, vinyl, and metal. Each has different advantages and provides a distinctive look.

What style do you prefer?

Take a drive around your town and look at the various fences out there. Take note of what designs you prefer and discuss them with your fence builder. He or she will give you advice on which fence will work best in your area.

Are there fencing restrictions in your neighborhood?

Some communities have very strict guidelines for consumers concerning the height, placement, and style of the fences in that neighborhood. Before planning your addition, consult your local regulations to find out if there are established fencing rules in your area.
