Different Fence Styles

You can pick almost any design at any height from a wide variety of metal fencing options. If you use wood materials, you can get away with constructing a higher fence in many localities. Sometimes, despite the type of fencing you select, laws have severe height restrictions.

 

As a result, you should pick a style that complements your house, raises the value of the land, and complies with the minimal standards established by your city or town. As many materials (such wood and wrought iron) have a tendency to deteriorate quickly, take into account the costs of installation and maintenance as well.

According to Your Needs

Since the wire can be produced in extraordinarily long lengths, both small and large fences can be built with very little complication and will last a lifetime. Chain link is adaptable to your demands, whether you're looking for a short security barrier or a larger security fence.

Decorative Fencing

The term "decorative fencing" usually refers to fences that are three to four feet high. Instead than keeping children or dogs inside (or outside), ornamental fences usually serve aesthetic purposes.

 

Metals such as wrought iron, tubular bars, vinyl panels, and others are frequently used to construct beautiful fences.

Privacy fences

For residential locations, privacy vinyl fencing is often the best choice. The ideal privacy fence height is high enough to obstruct your neighbors' views of your windows and front yard.
 

In addition, privacy fence construction frequently calls for solid panels, which are perfect for preventing intruders from looking through.
 

You may use fence slats to cover in the gaps and give your yard a more enclosed feel. Privacy fencing is available in wood, vinyl, and even chain link.

 

Due to its ability to filter out noise, privacy fences made of wood and vinyl are frequently used. Consider a thicker fence for your property if you live close to a busy road, highway, freeway, or commercial area for improved sound absorption. Now while these fences are often available at the big box stores it is important to use a reputable fence contractor to install it right. 
These types of fences are often installed wrong. Because they are relatively light, they need to be installed with strong posts, anchors, etc.

What Height Should I Get?

When organizing your fencing project, fence height is a critical component. The preparation for fence building is heavily influenced by height, from the sort of material to purchase to the amount you would like to spend. Here is some information about how to select the appropriate fence height and begin the process. Feel free to call us and we’ll be happy to guide you through the process.

 

What Are Typical Fence Height Ranges?

Fences typically come in heights between three and eight feet. Of course, there are variations, particularly for commercial uses and places where stronger fencing is required to keep out animals and vandals.

 

Additionally, some walls can be taller due to property borders that border highways and freeways. You can also run into other construction-related restrictions depending on the kind of fence and materials you select.

How to Select the Appropriate Fence Height

Verify Local Rules and Laws

Local rules affect how high you can build a fence, even though most fence installation projects fall within a certain height limit. Every city is free to impose its restrictions, and they are not limited to matters of height.

 

Cities frequently specify where, how, and why a fence can be installed. For instance, towns frequently impose the following rules:

 

Fence installation professionals abide by all these rules. No fences are allowed to be built within a certain distance of the property boundary.

To install a fence, neighbors must consent.

The fence design must first receive approval from the city.

Fencing cannot prevent access to the city or utility companies.

 

For various types of property, towns may also require a certain sort of fence. For instance, you might not be able to build a fence taller than three feet on a corner site. Cities frequently need shorter fence types to ensure visibility at junctions.

 

You can also have limitations on the kind of fencing you can use if there is a stop sign or traffic signal close to your home. In many places, fences must allow air to pass freely and cannot be taller than three feet.

In order to guarantee property security, privacy, and adherence to local requirements, fence installation and regulations are essential. Understanding the pertinent laws in your area is crucial when thinking about installing a fence and choosing a fence company. These rules frequently include things like height restrictions, setback specifications, and material restrictions. It is crucial to follow these rules in order to stay out of trouble with the law, your neighbors, and local authorities. A strong and attractive fence that satisfies your needs and the specifications set forth by your local authorities can be achieved by using a professional fence installation provider. This can assist you traverse these regulations. You may build a well-constructed fence that not only improves your property but also promotes peace in your community by adhering to proper installation processes and laws.

Types of Fences

Decorative Fencing

The term "decorative fencing" usually refers to fences that are three to four feet high. Instead of keeping children or dogs inside (or outside), ornamental fences usually serve aesthetic purposes.

 

Metals such as wrought iron, tubular bars, vinyl panels, aluminum fence and others are frequently used to construct beautiful fences.

 

Privacy fences

For residential locations, privacy fencing is often the best choice. The ideal privacy fence height is high enough to obstruct your neighbors' views of your windows and front yard.

 

In addition, privacy fence construction frequently calls for solid panels, which are perfect for preventing intruders from looking through.

 

You may use fence slats to cover in the gaps and give your yard a more enclosed feel. Privacy fencing is available in wood, vinyl, and even chain link.

 

Due to its ability to filter out noise, privacy fences made of wood and vinyl are frequently used. Consider a thicker fence for your property if you live close to a busy road, highway, freeway, or commercial area for improved sound absorption.

 

Privacy vs. Decorative Fences

How tall you may construct a fence may depend on the type you choose. An ornamental fence, for instance, might just be four feet tall. In contrast, a privacy fence maybe eight feet high and be subject to certain city requirements.

 

There is no need to scale up a decorative fence because its primary function is to improve the curb appeal of your home. Contrarily, privacy fencing needs to be taller because its goal is to prevent people from seeing inside.

 

Pool Fence

Pool fences are a special kind of boundary that seriously compromises public safety. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission offers broad recommendations on pool fencing, although local rules are different.

 

Consider the CPSC's advice when erecting a pool barrier to guarantee maximum safety:

 

Where possible, entirely enclose the pool rather than using a home wall as a side.

If a wall of the house serves as one side of the barrier, employ door alarms.

Build a fence that is at least four feet tall (five feet or more is preferred; in certain places, this is required).

Select materials that don't provide handholds or footholds.

Keep tiny gaps maintained to prevent kids or animals from slipping or climbing through.

Chain link, latticework, and comparable designs should have openings that are less than one and three-quarter inches wide.

Place fencing four inches or less off the ground.

At all entrances, use self-closing or self-latching gates.

Common Rules for Building Fences

What are the rules for building a fence in your area? The size and design of housing developments, as well as each city's requirements, all differ significantly. However, generally speaking, the laws governing the construction of fences rely on:

The general visibility of your lot and any nearby streets

shrubs, trees, and any other objects that reduce visibility

Regardless of how sloping or atypically formed your lot is

Whether the property has a pool

How close the lots or properties next door are to your home

whether there are sidewalks in front of the house or not

Having a pet or livestock

Before beginning to design or shopping for your new fence, it is best to consult the city or town. It will be lot simpler and less stressful to complete the task if you make sure your plans adhere to their rules.

Retaining Walls


If you have a retaining wall but you'd like to add a fence to it as well- don't worry, that can be done. Although fence additions are quite common, there are a few uncommon circumstances where a fence must be installed. You might want to build a fence over a retaining wall, or around one for example. You will be required to adhere to the rules by checking the specifics of your city's construction code.
