Important Considerations When Buying a Fence

Important Considerations When Buying a Fence

Hercules Fence can help you find the perfect fence for your yard!

Installing a new fence can serve many purposes. They provide security, privacy, protection, and enhance our curb appeal. It’s important that before making your purchase that you take all these factors into consideration to make sure that you’re choosing the right type and style. To give you some guidance, remember these important considerations.

Available Materials

The first consideration you should make after identifying the purpose of installing a new fence is which of the available materials you want to use. It is important to remember that each type of material comes with its own installation, maintenance, and repair requirements. Natural products usually need more maintenance and protection than man-made options. However, those man-made options may not give you the rustic or natural look that you want.

Use Different Types

Consider the benefits of possibly using different types of fences on your property. Maybe you like the look of wood for the front of your home, but you need something more secure for the back. You can find a way to mix it up without clashing with your style or the overall look of your property. Mixing materials may be the perfect way to completely meet all your needs.

Neighborhood Research

Call your homeowner’s association and check the website for your municipality before installing a new fence. There are probably regulations and restrictions in place that you’ll need to follow. Failure to do so may result in fines or having to remove your fence altogether and install a new one. It may also specify height, material, or even which side of the posts should face the street. Although this may seem like a nuisance to you, having to undo work that has already been completed will be even more of a pain.


Think about whether you’d want to customize and dress up your fence. You may want to add flower boxes or paint it a color that will complement your home. Choose a fence style that has some flexibility in this area, that would allow you to be creative.
