Can I put the fence on my property line?

In most situations you can, but we don’t recommend that you do. We recommend that you set your fence approximately six inches inside your property line to ensure that the fence is entirely on your property. This guarantees that the fence is yours and is not shared property with your neighbor. There are exceptions. In cases where the fence is purchased with the neighbor, you will probably want to put the fence right on the property line. Another exception would be if there were any community, county or city setbacks. Then you will need to set the fence inside the setback line.

How high of a fence can I or should I get?

It depends on your needs. If you’re trying to keep in a child or a dog, usually a four-foot chain link, split rail with wire, or a western red cedar or pvc vinyl picket fence will be high enough. A privacy fence is usually six feet in height, but you can go to seven or eight feet high, however, if you choose anything over six feet in height, you may run into problems with restrictions from either your home owner’s association or from your county or city government

What kind of care and maintenance does vinyl require?

Vinyl is virtually maintenance free. There’s no need to scrape, paint, or stain a vinyl fence. Pressure washing with a mild detergent and water should keep your vinyl fence looking new. For stubborn stains, use a non-abrasive cleanser and a soft-bristled brush.

Our experienced estimator can lead you in the right direction regarding this question.
