Privacy fences are a great way to ensure you don’t have to worry about prying eyes looking into your home, but what’s even better is that you can treat it like a home improvement project. Make the most of it and you can enjoy not just an improvement in function but curb appeal as well. To help you do just that, here are some tips from expert exterior improvement and roofing contractors Coxco Roofing.
Check Building Codes
Not all jurisdictions will have the same fencing requirements so it’s best to check what applies to your local area. Working with a professional can help you make sense of things, but it’s still a good idea to do your own research. Aside from local zoning rules and building codes, check with your neighborhood association as well to see if any restrictions are in place regarding fences. You don’t want to start building only to be forced to tear your fence down because it violates codes and rules.
Consider Varying Designs
Your home won’t require the same level of privacy throughout so look for areas you can play around with a bit when it comes to fence design. If you have a view, for instance, and want to keep it, you can lower your fence’s height in that spot. This will let you enjoy strict privacy where needed without compromising a beautiful view. Aside from fence height, you can also use a variety of materials, not unlike a roof replacement.
Build a Test Fence
You don’t want to find out the hard way that your fence design isn’t working so it’s always a good idea to build a test fence first. You don’t even have to actually buy the materials you’re interested in! Just hang some old sheets where your privacy fence will go to see what you will be blocking. Trust us–adjusting the height of a hanging sheet is easier compared to an actual fence.
