It depends on the location of your property. Each locality has different legal restrictions on the fences. There are specific areas where restrictions are non-existent; lucky them. Meanwhile, there are places where the implementation is strict. If you are unsure whether your area covers these restrictions, we suggest that you consult with authorities.

No, it is not a need, however, we encourage our clients to do so. It is a good thing to do to ensure smooth sailing process. Aside from that, your neighbor will surely appreciate you taking the time discuss your plans with them. Fence installation is a major project that involves not just you, but your neighbors as well. The construction may cause them nuisance but letting them know ahead of time will allow them time to adjust. If you are fortunate, some neighbors do voluntarily chip in for the project. However, it is important to keep in mind that the main motivation in consulting your neighbor is not get anything from it, but as a sign of respect to your neighbor.
It relies on how tall your fences are. Fence posts are required to ensure stability and strength, which makes it necessary to base the depth of fence posts with the height of the fences. Otherwise, the purpose of using fence posts is useless. Average height fences require 3 to 4 feet deep fence posts. So, if your fences are above or below average, your fence posts need to deeper or shallower respectively. When digging for fence posts, make sure to allow space for the concrete. Aside from the posts itself, concrete is essential in reinforcing the fence to make sure it remains stable.
It depends on the type of fence you have. Ideally, fences are not supposed to touch the ground since earth contains moisture. Fences and moisture are not a good combination since moisture tends to cause rusting on the fence, which can inflict damage, especially on metal material. We strongly suggest maintaining sufficient ground clearance to ensure that your fences remain safe. However, if your fences are intended for a purpose that requires it to touch the ground, then you can leave it as it is. These fences have enough protection to keep it protected from rust in the long run.
Yes, it does. A fine weather is not a problem. However, weather affects the project if it is extreme or constantly changing. Specific weather conditions make it tough for our manpower to work. We usually suspend work when the temperature is either too high or too low, when there’s heavy rain, or too much humidity. Aside from that, forcing to work on these circumstances might end up compromising the quality of work since materials may either contract or swell due to temperature. We don’t want to risk the overall quality of our project by insisting to work in unfavorable weather conditions. As much as we want to avoid delays, it is not worth your safety.
It depends on your need for fences. We cannot stress enough how important it is to use the appropriate materials for the right purpose. Doing so will ensure that you get the best out of your fences. Aside from that, it maximizes the longevity of its survival giving you back your money’s worth.

If you are looking for the best private fences, Cedar wood fence is a superb option. Meanwhile, if you prefer low-cost and easy to maintain one, you will never go wrong with chain link fences.
The height of your fences is based on how private you want your homes to be. If you want fences that can conceal you fully, then tall fences of about 7 to 10 feet high are perfect for you. This type of fence can surely keep out intruders and onlookers. It will allow you to enjoy your barbecue afternoons quietly, on your own. However, if you do not have much concern about observers, then short fences might fit you better.
