Whether you’re looking to add curb appeal or privacy to your backyard, you have a lot of options available when you’re in the market for a new fence. In fact, there are so many options, it would be easy to get overwhelmed — this is why you need to know what to look for, and why.

When you’re armed with information, you’ll have an easier time narrowing the options for fencing and fencing providers. To help you make the best choice for a fence at your property, here are some things to keep in mind.

Preliminary Research
What’s your goal in adding a fence? Do you want to protect your pets, or are you most concerned about adding privacy from nosy neighbors? When you know why you want a fence, you’ll be better prepared to pick the right one to suit your needs.

Likewise, research your fencing company. Ask lots of questions. Learn about a fence’s manufacturer and origin. Ask how long the contractor has been in business, and find out if it’s a member of the Better Business Bureau. By doing your due diligence, you should feel more confidence in your choice.

Fence Shopping
After determining your goals and locating reputable providers, it’s time to examine the fencing options. Do you go with a certain type of wood or a galvanized chain-link option? The best selection will depend on your preferences and needs. Once you’ve made a decision, be sure to get a written, detailed contract from the fencing installer — and ask for references beforehand.
