Here are some pieces of advice from our excellent Duramax Fence Experts.
Let’s get into it one by one.
Know your land or property area
If you are uncertain about your old fences’ location, it’s now your time to confirm and validate. Who knows you might be stepping on your neighbor’s property? Onboarding a land surveyor, although it might incur a bit of cost on your end, makes the task easy. Suppose you are surveying hectares of land you are not yet familiar with the area. In that case, the land surveyor will also help you identify the existence of slopes, drainages, among many others, if there are any.
Hiring a land surveyor would cost around $250 – $1,000, depending on the property’s size. Whether or not there are existing fences around your area, these experts ensure that your fences are built within your property, thus preventing you from future disputes involving you and your neighbor.
Never underestimate the power of Land Surveying! It guarantees that it will provide you a description of the exact boundaries of where your property starts and ends. Also, note that whatever is provided to you by the land surveyor is professionally certified, verifiable, and is certified professionally.
If you do not know any land surveyor in town, you may ask your contractor for their recommendations. They, for sure, have partnered with one before in their existing projects.
Comply with the community and local authority requirements
We know you have the freedom to do whatever you want on your property because you are the owner. While you enjoy such benefits, you also should not forget that your property is part of a larger community — the village where it is located and the local government unit where it is also situated.
With that being said, you and your property are bound by certain village or community rules and local ordinances you need to comply with materializing your project. As this is a structure, you might need to secure a building permit, among other requirements.
Consulting your neighbors and community leaders about your intent to build your fences pays a lot too! It is a humble and respectful gesture from you to maintain a good relationship with your community.
Identify the type of fence to use
As a property owner, you are particular about the type of fence you will use. You can choose from chainlinks, wood, aluminum, or even bricks, but our recommendation ends your search for the best material to use: PVC Vinyl Fences.
Duramax Fences have maximum durability. You can never go wrong by installing Duramax PVC Vinyl Fences!
