When it’s time to install a new fence, there are certain steps you are required take, such as surveying the land and staying within the property lines. However, there are some tasks you should do simply out of common courtesy, including talking to your neighbors about the plans and collaboratively deciding which side will face their property. Shelton’s Outback Fence of New Braunfels, TX, shares everything you need to know about fence installation etiquette.

Here are a few important tips:

  • Have a Discussion: Before the fence installation, speak to your neighbors about your building and design plans. Even if the blueprints for the new fence meet neighborhood regulations and adhere to property lines, make sure your neighbors feel comfortable with the prospective fence, since they will also see it every day.
  • fence installationGive Your Neighbors the Best Side: As a general rule, plan the installation so the exterior of the fence faces your neighbor’s property. Typically, the exterior is more aesthetically pleasing because of the finish. This not only makes it a nicer sight for your neighbors, but it also increases the home’s overall curb appeal.
  • Maintain the Fence: After the fence installation, continue to be courteous by performing routine maintenance. As time passes, clean any dirt, mold, or algae buildup from the fence, and schedule repairs for chipped, broken, or rotten wood. You should also re-stain it periodically.
