Consider the kind of pet you have
Before you decide on having a particular fence on your property, you need to consider the kind of pet you own. Not all fences will cater to your requirements. Here are a few things that you need to consider before choosing a perfect pet fence:
- Consider the breed of the pet (especially dogs)
- Consider how large your pet will grow (fencing is a long-term investment)
- Does your dog bark a lot? Then, a privacy fence would be ideal for cutting out distractions
- Consider the weather of that region
- Discuss with the experts about the aesthetics and how much you are willing to pay
Customize a tall fence to keep your pets fenced-in
Small and medium-sized dogs need a fence that’s ideally 4 feet high, but if you have a large breed, then you might need a taller fence. A large dog may jump over a 6-foot fence, so you should consider investing in a tall fence to keep your pet fenced in. However, a tall fence might need a permit, which is why you need to check with the local authorities before taking a call.
Can your pet climb over the fence?
Did you know some pets can climb over the fence to venture outside? In fact, some pets can even squeeze their way through small gaps and openings or go under the fence bottom. Due to this reason, it is a great choice to invest in a customized semi-privacy vinyl fence to stop the animals from venturing outside the property.
Consider how much privacy is necessary
Some dogs are extremely aggressive and get overly anxious by seeing strangers passing by the street. They start barking and creating an unnecessary ruckus, which is why a semi-privacy vinyl fence can be a good choice. An open-weave fence style is a big no-no if you have large, aggressive dogs. Vinyl fences with partial privacy are ideal for blocking disturbing scenarios from your hypersensitive pets.
Check property boundary lines
Before starting with your fence project, check out the property boundary lines, where exactly you plan to install the fence. Some communities have precise regulations you must adhere to when planning to invest in a fence and install the structure.
Check local codes
This brings us to the next point. Before you make the final call to invest in a fence, check the local laws as they vary from one state to another. If a fence is more than 4 feet, a permit might be necessary for some areas, so it’s best to check with the local authorities to avoid property tax penalties and unexpected fines. You also need to check local codes to ensure you don’t get into neighbor disputes. Putting a fence up and getting into trouble with the neighbors should be avoided at all costs, which is why a permit is necessary in advance. Also, ensure the fence isn’t too close or over the property line.
Most fences don’t require permits, but it’s always better to check before installing a tall fence rather than learning the hard way.
Decide how much upkeep and maintenance you are willing to do
Wooden and metal fences require heavy-duty maintenance. On the other hand, vinyl fences are virtually maintenance-free. A vinyl fence is a one-time investment; you don’t have to spend hours staining, cleaning, or painting the fence line. The smooth vinyl fence requires occasional wash with a hose and stays clean, retaining its sheen for numerous years. If your pets have a tendency to scratch or chew the fences, then vinyl fences are ideal. The vinyl material is scratch-resistant and won’t crack, break, or fall over, even after heavy blows and high impacts. While the wooden fences start splintering and can hurt the animals, the smooth vinyl fence surface is a safer choice to keep the pets fenced in.
Why choose vinyl fences for pets?
A vinyl fence is an excellent choice as a pet fence. The DIY vinyl fence is easy to install and almost maintenance-free. Duramax vinyl fences have thicker walls that don’t sag, warp, or break, which is excellent for larger and heavier pets like dogs. Moreover, a vinyl pet fence doesn’t rust and is moisture-repellent, and customizing the fence style can ensure they block the view, ensuring complete privacy to keep the pets safe from the outside world.
Final thoughts for choosing a pet fence
- Get a fence gate for further protection and security
- Be considerate of the neighbors
- Check if there are any local fence restrictions or HOA rules
