If you want to add privacy and security to your home, there is nothing better than installing a new fence to enclose your property. Vinyl fencing is one of the most affordable and durable options. There are also a lot of choices for the style of the fence that you will want to consider before installing it. The following tips will help you with planning your new vinyl fencing project to add a new fence to your property.
1. Fence Height Limits and Regulations
With any type of fencing material, there are limits on the height your fence can be and where it can be up to a certain height. This is usually higher for backyard areas. In addition, you will also want to consider other regulations that limit what you can do with your fences, such as visibility requirements and other regulations that may be established by a local building authority or neighborhood association.
2. Combining Vinyl Fence Styles
Since the regulations may limit the style of vinyl fencing you can have installed, you will want to combine different styles. This can be done by using the same post designs and details to integrate the different styles and give your new vinyl fence a more uniform look. Talk to your fencing contractor about using materials that are meant to work with each other, that are the same colors, and that use the same posts and mounting systems.
3. Gates and Posts That Need to Be Reinforced
There are also gated entrances and the posts of your vinyl fencing, which are some of the most important components when installing a new fence. These are areas that will require some type of reinforcement to ensure the new fence is sturdy. The posts can have concrete footings and wood or metal posts inside of the vinyl coverings. For your gates, you may want to consider options to reinforce your vinyl fence materials with metal frames, especially in areas with larger gates or where you are planning on installing openers.
4. Giving Your Fence Extra Features
Lastly, consider the details you add to your fence when installing vinyl fencing systems. With vinyl fences, there are many of the same options that can be done with wood and other materials. Try combining different details to help create a more unique and custom look when installing a new vinyl fence around your home.
