Apart from evaluating prices it is also best to determine the durability. There are some fencing materials that are expensive but are very durable. Meanwhile there are also cheaper fencing materials that are also durable. So it is best to inspect the quality of fencing materials before you purchase. Homeowners also need to keep in mind some other factors when choosing fencing materials such as the location of the property the size of property as well as the time needed to install fences. These factors are also important since knowing more about your location can help you choose the right fence for your home such as wood steel or perhaps chain links. Size also matters in order for you to determine your expenses during installation.
The wonderful thing about a double gate is that it functions as a single gate and the second gate leaf only opens when you choose for it to. When considering gate placement think of ease of entry and exit. You may want a gate close to the side door in a garage. A good place for a double gate is the side of the house close to the driveway. That way if you do need to get a vehicle through it you dont have to drive across the front yard. Gates in the back of the fence can be nice if you have a deep lot or back up to an easement. Gates into next door neighbors yards can also be nice but keep in mind if you or the neighbor sell the house the gate may not be welcome by the new occupant.
After you decide where to place the fence you need to pick a fence design you like. Since this series of articles is on wooden fencing I will tell you about common wood fence styles. The great thing about wood is the design is almost endless. Most fence contractors are also skilled carpenters and can help you design and build a fence that is unique to your tastes. With that being said there are common fence designs. Dog Ear Scalloped Arched or Half Moon Flat Top Shadow box Board on Board Spaced Picket and Trim Top are some of the most common fences we install. Some of the fence styles can mix such as an arched shadow box or a scalloped board on board. The easiest way to see pictures of these designs is to go to Google images and type in the fence style followed by the word fence.
The natural choice for a lot of home owners is to go with whit fences that project just that feeling the good thing about white fences is that once you finish the job you will have a great look for the front of your house the bad side is that white is not an ideal color for the outdoors but you can always repaint it when the color fades or gets dirty or get a high quality color that stays very long on wood fences and will probably survive until you deiced to change the whole fence altogether.
Now that you know what the HOA will allow its time to plan the placement of your fence. Some HOAs require the fence to be on the property lines while others will let you place the fence in from the property line to allow for shrubs. The HOA will also tell you how far up the house you can come such as the rear corner 20 from the rear corner or to the front of the house. Decide what works best for you and meets HOA regulations. Gate placement is also an important factor in fence layout. I usually suggest two gates- one on each side of the house. I also suggest making one of those gates a double gate. A double gate allows to you to get larger items in your back yard such as a vehicle a shed a play set or anything else.
